Earlier today, Donald Trump tweeted about schools being gun-free zones:
If schools are mandated to be gun free zones, violence and danger are given an open invitation to enter. Almost all school shootings are in gun free zones. Cowards will only go where there is no deterrent!

That prompted MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin to chime in with a reminder:
Reminder: Parkland had an armed resource officer who did not deter the shooter and did not stop the shooter. pic.twitter.com/CCDfSqtu8x

And that disproves Trump’s point how, exactly?
You forgot the part about him being a coward.

What they had was a coward who didn't do his job.

Reminder: He didn’t try, also, most police officers would. https://t.co/9r4WxPTxOK

You mean the guy who cowered outside, while knowing that shots were being fired inside?

Bad example, Kyle.
Reminder: One officer not doing his job does not reflect on the soundness of the policy idiot.

So we can’t rely on the police? We better arm ourselves for self-defense then.
