Hendersonville Lightning: Henderson County Sheriff McDonald joins Trump in White House school safety talk
When prevention and intervention fail and confrontation with the shooter is the only option left ...
Our schools are gun free zones, easy targets for crazed monsters to commit mayhem with impunity. So, what do you do when intervention and prevention fail as they did again in Parkland Florida? We have security at airports, court houses and legislative buildings. Why are we not protecting our children?? Please watch the videos below and read the articles of proposals from law enforcement.
Remember: The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. Then consider joining our School Safety Committee to lobby the School Board to make changes.
School Safety Committee: Three goals
1) Influence NC State legislature to take action to eliminate gun free zones and to provide incentives to train school personnel to repel an active shooter.
2) Work with the community and local law enforcement to raise awareness of school safety issues in the classroom to affect meaningful changes
3) Provide incentives for teachers to get a Conceal Carry and further training
