Yeah, even now when an armed School Resource Officer (SRO) saved lives with one:
Atlanta • A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.
Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.
But wait! Someone directly involved with the New Town shooting thought it was a good idea??
The Newtown Board of Education wants more armed police officers in the towns four elementary schools after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary last month.
Last night, they decided to ask the town to approve the request to include one additional full-time Newtown police at each of the elementary schools in next year’s budget.
Today, members of the board will be meeting with state and federal officials about obtaining additional funding for security.
“Our parents are demanding of us that things are made safe and secure and certain measures are put in place,” Chairwoman Debbie Leidlein said. “So we’re being very thoughtful.”
Several police officers have been stationed at all Newtown schools since the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, where 20 children and six staff members were killed. . .
Will the left now change their tune?
Sandy Hook wouldn’t be in the news today if these guys had been there.
Leftists tolerate armed guards in banks to protect money, are our kids somehow less valuable?
