Take the Dave McElwee School Safety Survey


Friday, February 28, 2014, by Buddy Saunders

While the risk of a shooter coming onto a school campus and doing harm is unlikely here in Arlington, and is as equally unlikely in any of the thousands of schools nationwide, it does happen, and it could happen here. So what precautions are prudent?

Local resident and leader, Dave McElwee, himself a teacher for 21 years and former military, is proposing that school personnel with concealed handgun licenses be armed while on duty.

While anyone can take the quick, 9 question poll, we think it should be of special interest to those with children in the Arlington ISD. Take the poll and let Dave know what you think about his idea.
