This is not gonna go over well with the liberals. The safety commission investigating the horrible Parkland shooting recommends allowing for the arming of some teachers.
A Florida state commission investigating the February shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that left 17 people dead recommended on Wednesday that teachers who undergo proper training be allowed to carry firearms at schools.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission voted 13-1 to recommend the state legislature pass the proposal. The recommendation calls for teachers who would be armed to undergo a background check and proper training.
It’s important to note that the commission is made up of some of the parents who were killed in the terrible attack.
The controversial idea was floated by some Republicans and advocates of “hardening” schools following the Parkland shooting, but was criticized by teachers and Democrats.
The Sun-Sentinel reported that Florida schools are allowed under current law to arm certain employees, such as resource officers or administrators. “In the ideal world, we shouldn’t need anyone on campus with a gun, but that’s not the world we live in today,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, a member of the commission. “One’s not enough. Two’s not enough. We need multiple people in order to protect the children.”
We saw that even with armed deputies at the school, some of them are going to back out of actually confronting the shooter. Why not have more people who can do that? And I’m fine with laws saying they need training and registering if they’re in schools. Scumbags who want to shoot up schools will know they will face some deadly resistance…
