Brookesmith ISD Says Yes to Guns On Campus
The drive from Brownwood to Brookesmith Elementary takes about 20 minutes.
That means it would take any law enforcement official 20 minutes to reach the school should a tragedy occur.
For this ISD, it’s a chance they’re not willing to take.
Now the school is moving forward with what they feel are necessary precautions. Several designated employees in each school will carry a handgun and have a concealed handgun license. Furthermore, such employee will be provided additional training in crisis intervention and management of hostage situations.
