    CLARKSVILLE, Ark. (AP) As Cheyne Dougan rounded the corner at Clarksville High School, he saw three students on the floor moaning and crying. In a split-second, two more ran out of a nearby classroom.
    "He's got a gun," one of them shouted as Dougan approached with his pistol drawn. Inside, he found one student holding another at gunpoint. Dougan aimed and fired three rounds at the gunman.
    Preparing for such scenarios has become common for police after a school shooting in Connecticut last December left 20 children and six teachers dead. But Dougan is no policeman. He's the assistant principal of this school in Arkansas, and when classes resume in August, he will walk the halls with a 9 mm handgun.
    The rest of the story.

  3. Big problem just arose! The Attorney General for Arkansas stated that since the staffers and teachers are not a private firm, it is his opinion that they cannot carry in the school. Asa Hutchinson has chimed-in calling for an emergency session of the legislature to address this issue/opinion. The AG has no problem with a private firm of licensed security guards carrying.

    They will not be carrying until this gets ironed-out. The Arkansas AG has thrown a wrench in the works. Doesn't have the kids safety as a priority.

    I suppose the staffers/teachers could form a private firm, but don't know the ins and outs of that move.

    Anyway, we'll see if Asa Hutchinson's call for an emergency legislative session gets some traction.

    This is pure Arkansas politics. Good ol' boy Little Rock Arkansas politics, while our school children are left as victims in so-called gun free zones.

    Very disappointed in the AG's opinion.

    Well given his (AG) personal issues while in office, it's a wonder anyone pays attention to this other similar "opinions".

    He is clearly opposed to any gun rights and is trying to save what's left of his career by appealing to liberals............
