Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel believes schools need to at least have a school resource officer on campus.
Broward Sheriff on how schools can be better secured: "Schools as soft targets need to be fortified. We need to look at how many school resource deputies are being employed at each school." https://t.co/O0pXTKVqV6 pic.twitter.com/wFsq2AevcV

Along with that, Israel also announced he will be ordering deputies to start carrying rifles in the county’s schools.

And not everyone was happy about what he had to say.
Wrong answer. Try again, Sheriff.

Because clearly gun-free zones are working SO well for us.
do resource officers count? i dont even know if ours carried a gun ???

We need to define what counts as a resource officer. Does he or she have to carry a gun?
This is not the solution.

Then what IS the solution?
We are all soft targets because of our outdated gun laws.
When the second amendment was written rifles fired one shot before reloading. ONE SHOT !

You’re an idiot.
With Florida lawmakers doing nothing he’s going to have to turn schools into prisons in order to restore peace

No. You don't turn schools into armed forts. You get rid of the bloody AR-15s. Now. Right away. Enough of the hiding behind 2nd amendment. Time to bring suit against NRA. Time to vote out NRA -owned politicians.

You do realize there are other guns besides ARs, right?
Ban assault weapons, background checks,

Hey genius, “assault weapons” is a political term and background checks already exist.
Schools aren’t war zones. Find the smarter answer not the harder answer

This IS a smarter answer. Want to know why? Because CLEARLY people don’t listen to the signs that tell them guns aren’t allowed on campus. DUH.
