Oh yeah, that should make those school shootings more efficient.

Courtesy of the NYT:

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey wants school principals and other administrators to be able to access a weapon stored on campus.

Ivey on Wednesday announced her implementation of a “School Sentry Program.” It will allow administrators in schools that do not have a law enforcement officer on campus to access a weapon kept in a fingerprint-controlled safe.

Ivey’s office said the program is voluntary and school systems can decide whether to participate. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency will oversee training.

The Alabama Association of School Boards said that while having trained school resource officers is the “optimal first line of defense” and arming school personnel isn’t a long-term solution, it recognizes Ivey’s desire to move quickly to protect children.

“The Alabama Sentry program appears to be a reasonable, interim solution with some sensible safeguards until the legislature can address this issue and identify a long-term plan to fund SROs,” Sally Smith, executive director of the association, said in the statement.

Okay, so should we write the headline now, or wait for the list of casualties? 

More guns = more guns = more gun deaths. 

Simple really.

    ‘“Maybe if everyone had access to mental health care, we wouldn’t be in the situation,” she says she told the president.

    Hart also suggested to Trump that schools employ veterans as “sentinels,” to keep watch over the students.

    “And arm them?” Trump asked her.

    She replied, “No,” but said Trump “kept mentioning” arming classroom teachers. “It was like talking to a toddler,” ‘
    “Before taking off for Texas Trump told reporters, “we’re going to have a little FUN today.””

    ” “actual malice.” “hoaxers” and “crisis actors” “-“To this day> Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones questioned whether the shooting was faked by the Obama White House and co-conspirators in an effort to undermine gun rights in the United States.”
    ” Jones claimed that the shooting was a “giant hoax,” was “staged” and had “inside job written all over it.” He claimed that traumatized families and students were “lying … actors” in front of a CNN blue screen during Anderson Cooper’s reporting from Connecticut. Jones compared the scene at the school to a Disney World hologram.”

    Oh for fuck sake! Let’s arm teachers and add more responsibilities to an already over worked,underpaid, under appreciated profession! Republicans want to arm teachers and store weapons at school instead of actually doing something about gun control. So much easier to blame too many doors, porn, or trench coats than on too many firearms in the hands of idiots.

    WTF?

    Fox News proposes blasting down school walls with cannons in event of school shootings
    Beyond parody.

    On Thursday, Fox News proposed a unique way to reduce fatalities at schools targeted by mass shooters.

    In “School shootings: This cannon fires unbelievable ammo to blast through walls and help rescue victims,” Fox News “defense specialist” Allison Barrie writes about a cannon called the “BCB Wall Breaker” that fires water cooler tanks at high velocities. Barrie suggests the cannon could help students escape mass shootings by blasting down walls.

    Rhode Island Becomes Latest State To Pass New Gun Laws After Parkland
    The governor has signed a bill to ban bump stocks and another to implement a “red flag” law.

    Rhode Island on Friday became the latest state to join a nationwide push to strengthen gun laws, with new measures to ban bump stocks and give law enforcement additional power to temporarily seize guns from individuals determined to be an imminent danger to themselves or others.

    In a bill signing event at the Rhode Island State House, Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) thanked lawmakers and volunteers with gun violence prevention organizations who were in attendance.

    “Because of you and your efforts, Rhode Island will be safer,” Raimondo said. “There’s no question that we need these laws, there’s no question that it’s common sense and there’s no question that it will make us safer.”

    On Thursday, the state’s General Assembly gave overwhelming final approval to the pair of bills, sending them to Raimondo. Lawmakers have characterized the legislation as a necessary response to horrific mass shooting events over the past year.

    The push began after an attack on a country music festival in Las Vegas in October, in which a gunman killed 58 people and injured hundreds more using rifles equipped with bump stocks ― accessories that allow semiautomatic firearms to simulate automatic fire.

    Once the bump stock ban legislation goes into effect, anyone in possession of a bump stock or similar device will have 90 days to sell, destroy or “otherwise remove these items from the state.” Possession will carry a penalty of up to 10 years in prison, or a fine of up to $10,000.
