为了应对日益严重的校园枪击威胁,美国一所学校想出了这样的措施:让老师配枪。

据《纽约邮报》3月7日报道,近日,美国得克萨斯州的大赛林独立学区(Grand Saline Independent School District)开始允许学校教师佩枪上岗。学区负责人迈卡·刘易斯(Micah Lewis)表示,若不得已,教师可拔枪“干掉”(take out)持武器的学生。目前,已是该措施实施的第二周。



 
Some teachers at a tiny school district in Texas are now packing heat — and educators won’t hesitate to “take out” an armed student if necessary, the superintendent said on March 7.

The Grand Saline Independent School District, located about an hour east of Dallas, is now in its second week of carrying concealed guns on campus, Superintendent Micah Lewis told The Post.

刘易斯介绍,大赛林独立学区内有一所小学、中学、初中和高中,共有1170名学生。学区所在的社区属于保守派,压倒性地支持武装教育工作者。“当地有95%的人支持这个计划。” 刘易斯表示,“少量没支持的人都是外人。”

Grand Saline ISD comprised of 1,170 students, who live in a conservative community, which overwhelmingly supports arming educators, Lewis said.

“Ninety-five percent of people here support this,” he said. “The only people who have not supported it are outsiders.”

刘易斯表示, “每次发生校园枪击事件,我和学区董事会就会再次讨论起(教师配枪)这件事。” “如果有疯子闯进学校,我们是否可以通过佩戴武器把伤害降到最低?”

“Every time there was a school shooting, me and the board talked about it again,” said Lewis. “If some crazy came in here, could we minimize the damage by being armed?”

刘易斯说:“经权衡,我们觉得如果实施‘监护计划’的话,我们的孩子会更安全。”




经过三年的讨论,大赛林独立学区董事会在几个月前投票通过了这项所谓“监护计划”(Guardian Plan)。

Grand Saline’s school board voted months ago to enact the so-called Guardian Plan following three years of discussions, the superintendent said.

刘易斯介绍“监护计划”称,愿意成为“监护者”(guardian)的学区雇员必须提出申请,经过得克萨斯州公共安全部门的筛选和培训。“监护者们”在配枪前必须先完成40小时的培训,之后还将进行额外的培训。教职工还必须持有一份许可证。

District employees who are interested in becoming guardians must apply for the program and go through a screening and training with the Texas Department of Public Safety, Lewis explained. They must complete 40 hours of training initially and additional hours on a continuous basis. The staffers must also have a license to carry.

刘易斯说,作为计划的一部分,没人知道哪些教职工携带了武器。并且,“监护者”在任何时候都应随身携带自己的枪支,不能把枪支放在校园里。



No one knows which teachers or staff members are armed — and Lewis says that’s intentional. The guardian keeps possession of the firearm at all times and the weapons are not stored on campus.

谈及如何面对向持枪的学生开枪这一困境时,刘易斯表示:“我们是教育工作者,我讨厌这样,但不得不这么做。” 他自问自答道:“如果有学生打算杀人,你会不会击倒他?答案很简单,干掉一个人,拯救更多人。”

The guardians understand they could be one day faced with the dilemma of potentially shooting an armed student.

“We’re educators. I hate that we have to do that, but again, you weigh it out. Do you take this student down if he’s mowing people down?” Lewis said.

“It’s an easy answer. You take one to save many.”

美国《教育周刊》(Education Week)今年3月8日公布的一份报告显示,2018年以来全美发生了104起校园枪击事件,其中,2021年报告了34起。


截至3月11日,最近的一起校园枪击事件发生在3月9日,佛罗里达州迈阿密花园的北花园高中发生一起驾车枪击事件,造成三人受伤。

On March 9, three people were wounded in a drive-by shooting at North Gardens High School in Miami Gardens, Fla.

据《纽约邮报》报道,目前,得克萨斯州内已有其他约300个学区允许部分教职工在校内携带武器。

The district, includes an elementary, intermediate, middle and high school, joins some 300 other school districts in the Lone Star State to allow some educators to walk around armed.

此前,2019年5月1日,美国佛罗里达州通过了“教师配枪”法案。
