In Texas, a town where the teachers carry guns

In the tiny Texas town of Harrold, children and their parents don't give much thought to safety at the community's lone school — mostly because some of the teachers are carrying concealed weapons.

"We don't have money for a security guard, but this is a better solution," Superintendent David Thweatt said.

We can protect our children."
