GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONES ARE KILLING KIDS

on

The Left is screaming “more gun control” following the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, but Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd called for arming teachers.

Judd told Fox News that gun control on every campus in Florida dictates that no one can bring a gun onto campus.  He added that the only person who violates this rule is the “crazed person, the active shooter.”

Instead of trying to restrict guns for self-defense, Sheriff Judd advocates for putting more gun on campus, as long as they’re in the right hands.

SHERIFF JUDD CREATED “SENTINEL PROGRAM” TO PROTECT STUDENTS

In 2016, Judd created the Sentinel Program at Southeastern University in Lakeland, which carefully selects faculty members to carry firearms on the chance a shooter carries out an assault on campus.

“We go through the staff and we look to see who has the clean background,” he said.  “In addition to that, we do psychological evaluations.  Then we do great amounts of training, even more than the Florida police standards require.”  He added that he’s to screens teachers and staff, finds people who possibly have past military or law enforcement experience, and gives them the tools to protect students.  

Judd said he’s proposed the program to Governor Rick Scott (R) and state legislators to implement it statewide.

Judd knows there are no absolutes in life, but he believes if his program had been in place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, “everything could have been different.”  The sheriff pointed to the three faculty members who died trying to shield kids and said if they had a firearm, it could have been a “game-changer.”

POLICE ARRIVE TOO LATE TO HELP

He explained the average shooting only lasts two to five minutes and that the average police response time is five minutes.  So, by the time 911 is called, it’s “too late.”

“There is not one parent that wouldn’t have taken a gun and run onto that campus that day in order to save those children,” Judd said.

    IIt often takes more than 5 minutes to respond to a call.
    America needs to be trained wrll on gun safety, then allowed to carry a protection weapon anywhere and not be charged exhorbitant fees, every year to exercise a Constitutional right.
    Our kids deserve to be protected.
    Punks kill people, not responsible gun owners. Don’t blame guns, but listen and watch for signs of someone in need of help and get the person stabslized.
