    Default NC Sherriff stocks schools with AR-15s

    The usual libtard "recoil-in-horror" reaction...

    North Carolina sheriff stocking schools with AR-15 rifles
    School officials and Madison County Sheriff Buddy Harwood have placed one semiautomatic rifle in each of the county's six schools.

    MARSHALL, N.C. -- When schools in one North Carolina county reopen later this month, new security measures will include stocking AR-15 rifles for school resource officers to use in the event of an active shooter.

    Spurred by the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 children and two teachers dead in May, school officials and Madison County Sheriff Buddy Harwood have placed one of the semiautomatic rifles in each of the county's six schools. Each of the guns will be locked inside a safe, Harwood said.

    The North Carolina school district and sheriff's office are collaborating to enhance security after the Uvalde shooting revealed systemic failures and "egregiously poor decision-making," resulting in more than an hour of chaos before the gunman was finally confronted and killed by law enforcement, according to a report written by an investigative committee from the Texas House of Representatives.

    "Those officers were in that building for so long, and that suspect was able to infiltrate that building and injure and kill so many kids," Harwood told the Asheville Citizen Times. "I just want to make sure my deputies are prepared in the event that happens."

    The idea of having AR-15s in schools does not sit well with Dorothy Espelage, a UNC Chapel Hill professor in the School of Education who has conducted decades of study and research on school safety and student well-being.

    "What's going to happen is we're going to have accidents with these guns," Espelage told WLOS-TV. Just the presence of an SRO increases violence in the schools. There's more arrests of kids. Why is it that they have to have these AR-15s? It doesn't make any sense."

    Madison County Schools Superintendent Will Hoffman said school administrators have been meeting regularly with local law enforcement officials, including Harwood, to discuss the updated safety measures.

    Harwood said the county's school resource officers have been training with instructors from Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.

    Harwood said the safes where the AR-15s will be kept will also hold ammunition and breaching tools for barricaded doors.

    "We'll have those tools to be able to breach that door if needed. I do not want to have to run back out to the car to grab an AR, because that's time lost. Hopefully we'll never need it, but I want my guys to be as prepared as prepared can be," he said.

    Seems like the opponents should have a "DO NOT SAVE" list and those opposed can have their children wear identifying clothing to prevent mistakenly saving their asses in a crisis.

    They can bury their children and won't need to hear any of that nonsense about not wanting "prayers" for them.
    Fuck them. They made their choice.

    I dunno. Seems like a good plan to me.

    The last thing lefftists want is for the children to be protected. The leftists in order to have power need victims not protection.

    I like it.

    In addition to Resource Officers, they also need to train and arm teachers... those willing.

    I like how she equates SROs with increased violence because there are more arrests. Bless her heart!

    I will say I'm leery of SRO's being bored or too heavy-handed and making criminals out of kids who do the normal stupid shit kids do.

    If you make no arrests, there is no reported crime. That's the current theory in liberal minds.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    There are going to be 'accidents' with these guns? The SRO will be the only person on sight with access.

    There is no more violence because of an SRO presence, and the reason there are more arrests is because crimes are witnessed and dealt with, instead of being downplayed and swept under the rug by administration.

    While I agree with having school staff armed with appropriate weapons, the logic tying into the Uvalde shooting is flawed. There were plenty of AR-15 rifles available at Uvalde within minutes of the shooting, it did not take an hour for people with the right weapons to arrive.
