Democrats introduced national legislation to get police out of schools | Beaufort County Now | Uvade may have turned out differently if armed officer had been present

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

As the George Floyd inspired insurrection was ongoing, Democrats in the US Senate introduced a bill to get police out of the schools.  How pig-headed!  Cops is schools are a layer of protection for students against crazy people like the maniac at Uvade, Texas.  If an armed policeman had been present in that attack, it may well have turned out differently.

Here in Beaufort County, we did have sheriff's deputies in our schools until Sheriff Coleman got in a pissing contest with the School Board.  Now we are downgraded to private rent-a-cops.  With a new sheriff coming in December, the opportunity is there to get our sheriff's deputies back on the job.  Scott Hammond has pledged to get things back on an even keel with our schools.

Go Back

I have advocating much of this for decades.

That is why I worked for nearly two years pounding Nominal Republicans into submission to some basic wisdom to at least get Concealed Carry permitted in almost all of Beaufort County's government buildings. In these buildings (excepting the schools, the courthouse and the Sheriff's facilities), they are no longer "Free Fire Zones," where a deranged gunman can aim at sheep cloaked in a human skin.

CT you are right that "liberal county commissioners like Frankie Waters and Jerry Langley and Ed Booth" were constant obstacles to completing this arduous and wise governing task, but one also needs to add in one-term-Liberal Jerry Evans as also one of the People's greatest obstacles in doing what was smart and right to add to the defense of the undefended.

What is needed is to arm vetted and trained teachers and staff. As a father of a victim in the FLorida school shooting pointed out "when seconds count, the police are minutes away." Making schools "gun free zones" makes them soft targets attractive to nutjobs. If they don't know which teacher or staff member will pull out a concealed carry weapon and shoot back, it is a huge deterrent. Polls show that the majority of Americans support arming teachers, so why do we have head-in-the-sand school boards who fail to take this important step to protect students?

For that matter, we have liberal county commissioners like Frankie Waters and Jerry Langley and Ed Booth who have opposed allowing county employees who are trained and licensed to concealed carry on the job. That helps protect both county employees and citizens.
