.@RepLynnStucky This is why we don’t need unlimited undertrained teachers and school staff carrying guns around children. Vote against SB406 & SB244 if they come up for a vote in the House. Worried about rural schools? Put $$ for SROs whose job is security. #txlege
Need an example closer to home? This JUST HAPPENED in Mesquite ISD with a highly trained LEO. Unlimited #s of teachers who have a fraction of the training should not carry guns around kids. What if he had been in a classroom? Who would the bullet have hit?…
Need another example? I used to teach 1st grade. We sang songs, danced to math facts chants, & got up & down off the floor. I got unexpected hugs from 6yr olds every day. I pulled my chair up next to their tables to help them w/writing.…
Another highly trained teacher and SRO whose gun went off and injured students IN A CLASSROOM during a...wait for it...gun safety lesson. SB406 and SB244 would make these scenarios more likely in Texas.…
Need more examples? Here’s a list compiled by @GiffordsCourage of mishandled guns in schools. @RepLynnStucky please read and do the research before voting on these bills.…
With current TX law, school marshals are only required to have 80 hrs of firearms training. These are not LEOs. They are regular people like me. That’s a 2 week, 8am-5pm training. SB406 & SB244 would allow unlimited undertrained school staff to carry firearms on their person.
One last thing to clear up any misconceptions. I am married to a Navy veteran who is a responsible gun owner. The unloaded firearm in our home is secured in a biometric gun safe with the ammunition stored separately. I’m not anti-gun. I’m anti gun violence.
