BRYANT, Ark. (KARK) -- A private school in Bryant, Arkansas is in the national spotlight, commended for its decision to train and arm its school's staff.

"I just felt like with what's going on in many of the public sectors where there seems to be a lot of shootings we need to take the same stance that we do in church on Sunday for our kids Monday through Friday," says Pastor Perry Black.

Pastor Black has armed security during Sunday service, but now his school will be seeing the same thing five days a week. He posted some signs in front of the Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant that read: "Staff is armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force."
