So the final report from the state commission charged with investigating the February massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida last year was just released this Wednesday, and there were several key takeaways from the 458-page document.
Among them: Donald Trump had the right idea when it came to potentially arming teachers.
Report - Dozens - Recommendations - South - Florida
“The report contains dozens of recommendations,” the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. “Some would require action by the governor and Legislature, such as the proposals to allow some teachers to carry guns and increase spending on school security.”
The Sun-Sentinel also reported that the committee recommended “(t)he Broward Sheriff’s Office should conduct an internal review of seven deputies who arrived during the shooting but appeared to fail to even attempt to take effective action.”
Waves - Recommendation - Educators - Weapons - Campus
However, the biggest waves were made by the recommendation that trained educators be allowed to carry weapons onto campus in order to stop shooters.
Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri “spoke forcefully” when recommending the measure, noting that the shooter had time to reload his weapon five times. That would have given trained educators five potential opportunities to neutralize the threat.
Idea - People - Ideas - Heads - Guns
However, he acknowledged that the idea wasn’t going to be popular among people who had certain ideas in their heads regarding guns.
“So what are we saying to people — we’re not going to allow you to defend yourself, we’re not going to allow you to defend the kids — why? Because of some ideology that we don’t like guns? Anyone who thinks they’re going to get rid of guns is crazy,” Sheriff Gualtieri said.
Something - People - Themselves
“It isn’t going to happen. We’ve got to do something differently and people should be able to protect themselves.”
Do you think trained teachers should be allowed to conceal-carry on campus?
