Now that an organization is willing to sponsor a true security plan based on sound principles that have been proven to work, as opposed to failed laws and legislation, we will see how serious the current administration is about protecting our students - and not promoting a political agenda.
I read the transcript and all I have to say is "Amen." I think the plan has about a snowball's chance in hell of getting implemented anytime soon, but this is good because it shows they're really willing to do something that actually works, and as you say, it puts the ball in the left's court. Gun control can only work theoretically decades after all
guns are confiscated (nothing magical about military style weapons), not nearly fast enough for hysterical parents. This plan could work NOW. Surely many parents who let emotion drive their policy decisions can get behind a plan that will work to protect their children now instead of maybe protecting their grandchildren, maybe.
