In a strange and highly unusual change in roles, a Democratic Louisiana State Senator introduced the Safe School Act that would allow teachers and other school officials to carry a firearm at school after proper training. Sen. John Milkovich (D-Shreveport) said that he believed it’s time to arm teachers in order to protect your kids.
However, after listening a few liberal, frightened and uninformed students, the Senate Education Committee voted down the bill. Five Republicans on the committee voted against the bill, along with 1 Democrat. It seems the only vote for the bill was Milkovich, a Democrat.
(The Daily Comet) – The Senate Education Committee on Thursday refused to approve a bill that would have allowed schools officials to possess firearms, a decision that marked a second defeat for efforts to arm teachers.
A 15-year-old student, Lily Wilder, testified against the bill, arguing that having guns on school campuses would not be effective and would lead to questions about where to store them. She also feared that students would lack input on which school officials could carry firearms.
“Considering the students are with the teachers every day, I believe we know them best,” Wilder said.
The bill, called the Safe Schools Act, was proposed by Sen. John Milkovich, D-Shreveport. It would have allowed schools to designate people to possess firearms, and it would have enabled schools to have any student who posed a threat placed in police custody…
One of the Republicans on the committee said that since highly trained law enforcement officers make judgement errors, that it’s not right to expect teachers to make the right decision in the event of an active shooter. Based on that logic, no one can ever be trusted to do anything right under pressure and we all might as well just seal ourselves in protected bulletproof bubbles for the rest of our lives.
