Everytown must be breaking out the champagne right about now. They killed an armed teacher/staff initiative in court:
MADISON TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - Armed teachers and other staff members at school district in the northern Cincinnati suburbs must have police levels of training, which is 728 hours, not the 27 hours in the school’s policy, an appeals court ruled this week.
“The express language of the statute does not suggest an intention to allow teachers or staff to carry a firearm while on duty with less training than that indicated in the statute,” Ohio 12th District Court of Appeals Judge Robert Ringland wrote in the decision.
The plaintiffs are Erin Gabbard, Aimee Robson, Dallas Robson, Benjamin Tobey and Benjamin Adams, on behalf of themselves and their children.
They are represented by Gupta Wessler LLC of Columbus, Ohio and the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund.
Everytown for Gun Safety is a non-profit organization that advocates for gun control and against gun violence. It was founded in 2014 and is largely financed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who also founded the group.
Parents sued the district in 2018 to try to stop its new policy from taking effect.
728 hours?!?!?!?!? In comparison:
Police academies spend about 110 hours training their recruits on firearms skills and self-defense — but just eight hours on conflict management and mediation.
This is according to a 2006 report from the Department of Justice, which looked at the median time state and local academies spent on various law enforcement skills.
So, in order for a teacher or staff member to carry, they need x7 the amount of firearms training that police officers receive. In other words, they need to be super cops. In other words, these Democrat sissy parents and Everytown just put students at risk for their personal political agenda because that amount of training is not going to happen, therefor volunteer guardian staff will just forget about it. Good job. Further, Everytown’s mission has been questioned by civil rights groups, as well as irregularities with their funding and activities related to their 501(c)3 status.
Say, I wonder if that district has Students Demand Action chapters in the schools?
