“I can’t imagine a world where a teacher is preparing her lesson plans in the morning or his, having a cup of coffee and, as they grab their lesson plan, they say ‘Let me grab my .357.’ The moment we start walking into an environment as educators to teach our students with the idea that I also may have to kill this same student, we’re lost as a society, not as a state. So I am 100% opposed,” Tony said.
He said there is “no proven data point” to back up the notion that arming more people would improve public safety by empowering more people to stop active shooters.
In fact, he said, more armed people increases the chances something will go wrong. “Shooting inside of an indoor environment is very complicated,” he said.

Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony offers his take on critical issues: gun violence, marijuana legalization, and race

This is mostly talk from Chief of Police from 15-20 years ago. when the possible horrors of Concealed Carry was still being argued by the Opposition and even warning of “blood on the streets”

The moment we start walking into an environment as educators to teach our students with the idea that I also may have to kill this same student, we’re lost as a society, not as a state. So I am 100% opposed,”

I can even give you an exact date when this piece of wishful thinking died a gruesome death: April 20, 1999.

The Columbine Massacre where twelfth grade students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher was what is called a watershed moment that was (and seems) to be ignored in order to advance political rhetoric rather than real solutions.

He said there is “no proven data point” to back up the notion that arming more people would improve public safety by empowering more people to stop active shooters.

This one has always been a favorite of Gun Controllers: If there were not a lot of corpses, how can you say it was a Mass Killing incident; and if there are corpses, then you failed.  Nice game but we refuse to play and instead I link you to a very long list of cases where an armed civilian stopped a Mass Killer.

And then:

In fact, he said, more armed people increases the chances something will go wrong. “Shooting inside of an indoor environment is very complicated,” he said.

This is 100% pure, unadulterated “I am the only one professional enough…” bullshit. The cases of an armed civilian shooting somebody by accident in a closed or open environment are so scarce, I can’t even come up with one.  Reports of cops shooting civilians accidentally? You know the answer damned well.  I think we remember the case of 71-year-old Samuel Williams who shot two armed robbers inside a crowded internet cafe. The only ones injured were the bad guys without the use of the Police Technique of emptying the  full size sidearm on them. In fact I think the weapon used by Mr. Williams was a Ruger LCP that he was carrying in his pants’ pocket.

Just when you hope Broward County may have a decent Sheriff, it ends up with one in the tradition of Ken Jenne and Scott Israel but with a different tan. Then again he might be reciting the proper words for when election time comes and he hopes he does not get raped by the Democrat Machine.  But he should not worry, I don’t think Broward County has elected a Black Sheriff in ages. At least he could stop sounding like them.

  1. Sounds like the Sheriff of Pinellas
    Tony must not be old enough to know about MAD Mutually Assured Destruction If an active shooter knows he might face a .357 it may make him change his mind
    The .357 shows comments age

  2. He said there is ‘no proven data point’ to back up the notion that arming more people would improve public safety by empowering more people to stop active shooters.

    They always use this argument because you can’t prove a negative. Despite anecdotal evidence that potential mass shooters have be stopped by armed school personnel, you can’t statistically analyze schools being NOT littered with bodies because of an armed teacher, because schools not littered with bodies is the day to day norm for every school in the country.

    1. In fact there is proven data showing that more armed people improve public safety. John Lott has been showing that for years. Not just “More Guns, Less Crime”, but statistical data which shows that these mass shootings only take place in gun free zones. OK, technically not “only” in gun free zones, but over 90% of the time. In the whole country population, we all know that as concealed carry has gone up crime rates have gone down.

      Then there’s the old red herring about doddering old Mrs. Crabapple not using her .357. It’s about people who would carry anyway being allowed to carry and getting them some training to help.

      His comments are so full of bullsh*t that they’re usable as organic fertilizer.
