A Christian school in Arkansas has the right idea and most common sense plan to combat school gun violence. The “common sense” ideas of the left have been to display “gun-free zone” signs on campus to somehow discourage murderers with nothing to lose from shooting up a bunch of people. It’s worked so well in the past. And, if it’s ever failed, it just means the “gun-free zone” campaign needs more money.

Arkansas Christian Academy in the city of Bryant has the opposite idea. Instead of advertising to the world that no guns are allowed, they have a sign that warns criminals that the staff is “armed and trained”:

“Staff members began receiving training and permits to carry weapons earlier this year, in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. Now, a sign outside Christian Academy stands as a warning to any would-be shooter. ‘Staff is armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force,’ reads the sign.”
