BREAKING: AR-15 Bombshell Rocks American School - What Do You Think...

August 8, 2022

North Carolina's Madison County School District has made the decision to equip every school in the district with AR-15s, which can be used in case of an attack.

The decision to arm the schools was made after the horrific shooting in Uvalde, Texas, which left 19 students and two teachers dead.

Madison County Sheriff Buddy Harwood told the media that "Hopefully we'll never need it, but I want my guys to be as prepared as prepared can be. We were able to put an AR-15 rifle and safe in all of our schools in the county. We've also got breaching tools to go into those safes. We've got extra magazines with ammo in those safes."

It wasn't made clear if teachers would have access to the weapons in the event of an active shooter on campus.

Regardless, this move by the Madison County School District sets an important precedent for schools around the nation.

Our schools need to become hard targets to discourage unhinged individuals from attempting to commit horrible atrocities. These horrible tragedies will likely continue until it is clear that attacking a school will not end well.
