It’s a real shame that “Parkland survivor” David Hogg turned out to be the one to suck up all the media attention following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fl., because there were a lot of survivors with stories to tell, some who lost so much more than Hogg’s right to carry an opaque backpack.
Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the shooting, mainly interested the media and the mob for his Trump T-shirt, but he’s among those who’ve been looking for a way to make schools safer that doesn’t trample the Second Amendment.
One addition he recently showed off is his daughter’s namesake Meadow, a dog that can sniff out weapons.
This trained dog was named Meadow in honor of my daughter. She can sniff out weapons and immediately stop an active shooter.
She’s a fighter, just like my daughter.

Very impressed by your work to help make schools safer and more secure. I just hope schools will start to smarten up and allow a safer environment for the kids. Not all dangers can be stopped, but this is a great step and wish you nothing but the best. Great segment earlier!

Keep up the great work on this movement! The best idea that's been put to practice and proven to help!

This is the best most efficient solution! Like you state, these dogs will never cower, never! I would love to have a dog like that in my kids school in Illinois!

I watched you on FOX news this morning explaining how the dogs will be used in an active shooter situation. Very impressive, incredible idea and support for you and all you are doing to keep schools safe. Thank you for your strength and courage in the face of your loss!?

I love this idea. I saw the program and immediately texted a friend about it. I’m for it 110%. Both Meadows WILL make a difference in many lives.

Very proud of everything you do! Not many people are capable of living through the pain you endured and then turning that pain into an amazing effort to save others! Thank you.

That's a beautiful tribute to your daughter.

This is the type of real change that we need. We mourn those that we have lost. May they rest in peace. But in the meantime, let's make them damn proud.

Mr. Pollack, you have turned your unthinkable loss into such good for others. I’m sure Meadow was an amazing young lady based on how you live your life and the influence you had in hers. God Bless you. ?

So many ways to push forward with school safety. And yet, still so many who stand in the way of doing so. Those in charge of school safety must be both helped and held accountable.

Fantastic! Dog is trained for a particular school! Just like the deputies but without the cowardly element.
— Brian Turner (@bdtforlife1965) March 9, 2019
Saw that segment. Your work to improve school safety is admirable. Wish mine had more than just cameras to show who shot me after the fact.

Maybe he will bite your Superintendent of Schools in the ass.

As a bonus, here’s another Parkland survivor who somehow never got picked up by the mainstream media:
You would think that after 17 people were murdered, my school would finally be safe.
Sadly, no. A shooter can just as easily get into the school today, as the day of the shooting.
It’s time to hold our corrupt and incompetent government officials accountable. pic.twitter.com/2Er0UJTRL3
