gunsafety-224x300

A Christian school in Arkansas has a warning for would-be attackers: be prepared to meet your Maker if you try to harm their students.

“Staff is armed and trained,” reads a sign posted outside the Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant, Ark. “Any attempt to harm our children will be met with deadly force.”

School administrator Perry Black told Fox News the “purpose of the sign is to prevent us from ever having to use any kind of force.”

“We have a moral obligation to protect those children in our care and we’re dedicated to doing that with whatever means are necessary,” he said. “I’d rather be in the news for having a sign than having a tragedy.”
