    On June 6, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed legislation removing the cap on the number of armed teachers allowed in each of the state’s school districts.

    Teachers and other school staff in Texas can be armed under the state’s School Marshal program, but the Texas Tribune reported that limits were set for the program so “schools that participate in the program can only designate one marshal per 200 students or one marshal per building.”

    Given enough time, the A/B tests by states with armed school staff vs. ones without will be telling. Not that it’ll matter to gun haters.

    Sure will make one of these nuts think twice not knowing who might be capable of lighting their ass up.
