PALMETTO (WWSB) -Since the Broward County school shooting, the state has made sure security is tight around Florida schools.
At Manatee School for the Arts they have put a safety measure in place that is a little different than other schools across the Suncoast.
Because Manatee School for the Arts is a charter school, they’re allowed to make their own rules about security. Just a few months ago they decided their school guardian would carry around a military-style long gun along with a handgun.

Manatee school guardian carries military-style gun

I read somewhere that Hope is not a sound tactical strategy. I am sure that there will be people pulling their hair and tearing their clothes at the idea that their precious babies must be in the same acreage as an Evil Black Rifle, even in the hands of a trained person.

“We’ve had a couple of incidents and we just called and they’re here in three minutes. Unfortunately, you look at parkland and in three minutes how many people were killed. So you know you can’t expect much more from the police, there’s only so much they can do and the rest of it is your responsibility,” said (The school’s principal, Dr. Bill) Jones.

This is somebody who read the Parkland Report and I am sure was horrified to find out most of the dead and wounded happened in the first three minutes. And we know that three minutes is a fantastic police response time, but physics and time cannot be bypassed. The response to an attack must be as immediate as possible.

Dr. Jones said there’s been mixed reaction to the gun in the school so far, but overall it’s been positive. He said another guardian who will also carry a long gun will start working at the school very soon.

Well double good: Good reaction from the people and doubling down on security. May it keep the students from harm.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. The guardian is a former 11B and a good kid. He’s not there to assist with discipline. He’s only there to shoot bad guys. He just needs an upgrade from that Kel-Tec RDB.

  2. Since the Broward County school shooting, the state has made sure security is tight around Florida schools.

    No – the state has done two things: Jack and sh*t. Jack already left town, leaving only sh*t.

    They made the security programs voluntary, and whether to use better security or not depends on reliably hard left-wing activists in the school board. Only two districts in the state have chosen to arm allowed staff.

    What the law has created for Florida schools has become the exact same solution as Broward Schools had in place before Parkland. MSD High School had one armed person to respond immediately to the active shooter situation, the now legendary Broward Coward who ran away, That worked out well, didn’t it?

    The MSD Commission Chairman, Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, says that the state’s school districts have no sense of urgency in making our schools safer from the possibility of an active shooter attack. He also noted some Sheriff’s Departments are refusing to train school personnel as allowed, but apparently not mandated by the law. He wants the legislature to mandate that training should a school board adopt the guardian plan.

    All the state has done is to virtually guarantee that the next psycho who wants to set a murder record won’t be slowed by anyone who might shoot back.
