A lot went wrong in Uvalde. There was an unlocked back door that the shooter used to gain access. Contrary to reports, there was no armed response officer there. Police waited an incredible 40 minutes before storming the classroom and ending the rampage.
The Luke and Alex school safety act, pushed by parents of Parkland shooting victims, addresses these security failures to establish best practices for hardening schools against such attacks.
Schumer has blocked the act for 3 years, including yesterday. He wants gun control and will not make schools safer until he gets his way. Even if you want gun control, what could possibly be wrong with makes schools inherently harder to attack?
The Chesapeake school my grandchildren go to has already adopted many hardening procedures on their own. There are several exits that can be opened from the inside, sounding an alarm, but only one way in, through locked steel doors which will only be buzzed open after you have been checked out by the reception desk. Why is that not standard practice?
Why does Schumer seek to block developing best security practices? Does he want the dying to continue until he gets his way?
