Select BISD staff to carry concealed handguns at school

Bonham ISD superintendent Marvin Beaty.

Under a new security program, some Bonham ISD staff members will be carrying concealed handguns at school, according to a report by KXII-TV.

More than 80 staff members have applied for the district's new Defender Program, the report said.

"Of that group we will trim that down and there will be some actively in the program and we'll have some alternates as well," Bonham Independent School District superintendent Marvin Beaty said.

Each classroom, office and school bus will have a safe, with a mace gun inside, Beaty said.
