This is just an excuse for Gun Control

I am sure that the Marjory Stoneman Douglass kids who were killed or injured would have felt more traumatized by the drill than because of the bullets impacting in their bodies.  And, of course, we would never know because the high school did not conduct Active Shooter drills. From the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission official report

The lack of a formal Code Red or similar active assailant response policy in the Broward County Public Schools led to school personnel not knowing or clearly understanding the criteria for calling a Code Red, who could call it, or when it could be called. The lack of a called Code Red on February 14, 2018, because there was no policy, little training and no drills, left students and staff vulnerable to being shot, and some were shot because they were not notified to lockdown.

The report has to be ignored in this new legislative season. It is an embarrassment and it goes against the goals of the Florida Democratic Party, namely more Gun Control.  You do not see anybody complaining about Fire Drills but, when was the last time we had a dangerous fire in a school anywhere in the country? Yet we do Fiore Drills and kids are not traumatized by them.  I guess smoke inhalation and your skin melting off your body are not really traumatic events.

People are playing political games with the life of kids because a pile of corpses advances their agendas. Safe kids do not generate votes.

  1. Somehow, years of unannounced fire drills in schools didn’t traumatize the students and are considered an essential part of school safety. Everyone from the principal to the first grader knows what to do in the event of a fire. Thanks to modern construction, and building codes, school fires are extremely rare events, yet we still have fire drills, and teach fire awareness and response. Why on earth would you not treat a school shooting event the same way we have treated fire response for decades.
