Texas town allows teachers to carry concealed guns

In Monday, Dec. 17, 2012 photo, the town's water tower rises above the railroad tracks in Harrold, Texas. The rural town's lone school has a policy allowing teachers and other employees to carry concealed weapons on campus. Some lawmakers in at least five other states are looking into similar legislation in the wake of last week's deadly elementary school shooting in Newton, Conn. Anti-gun groups oppose the measure.
