A good call Sheriff. That is about the truth summed up nicely. Don't panic until we actually see the laws (passed) but don't lose focus that we have to address these despicable actions of shooters whether they are criminals, mentally unstable, whatever, it can't continue.

Obama just had to play King and as usual, his 3 memorandums that outline 23 executive actions are nothing more than a joke that opens up the door for court battles, Congressional delays, controversy and conflicting do nothing but complicate the real intent.

Heck the one you want Sheriff is going to leave you in a fight with local school boards to achieve. You won't get that money unless you can convince the school of it. Putting resource officers back into the schools was a smart move, then he complicated it. The part I hate, he left that decision up to the schools. Stupid move.

Good move Stone.Your right !!

Right or wrong Obama's trying to do what the other cowards in washington won't do.

Since sandy hook there's been over 2000 people killed with guns.

The others are more worried about votes.

Read the executive order. Grant money that can be applied for by agency's if the school boards want a resource officer. Not costing the school anything.

Take executive action to provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers: COPS Hiring Grants, which help police departments hire officers, can already be used by departments to fund school resource officers. This year, the Department of Justice will provide an incentive for police departments to hire these officers by providinga preference for grant applications that support school resource officers.

Put up to 1,000 new school resource officers and school counselors on the job: The Administration is proposing a new Comprehensive School Safety program, which will help school districts hire staff and make other critical investments in school safety. The program will give $150 million to school districts and law enforcement agencies to hire school resource officers, school psychologists, social workers, and counselors. The Department of Justice will also develop a model for using school resource officers, including best practices on age-appropriate methods for working with students.

PUT UP TO 1,000 MORE SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS AND COUNSELORS IN SCHOOLS AND HELP SCHOOLS INVEST IN SAFETY: Putting school resource officers and mental health professionals in schools can help prevent school crime and student-on-student violence. School resource officers are specially trained police officers that work in schools. When equipped with proper training and supported by evidence-based school discipline policies, they can deter crime with their presence and advance community policing objectives. Their roles as teachers and counselors enable them to develop trusting relationships with students that can result in threats being detected and crises averted before they occur. School psychologists, social workers, and counselors can help create a safe and nurturing school climate by providing mental health services to students who need help.

Not every school will want police officers or additional school counselors, but we should do what we can to help schools get the staff they determine they need to stay safe.

Straight from the executive order. Again, Obama isn't doing crap to fight the real problems.

That is how stupid this has turned out. If the School says no to resource officers, it's a no.

Example: In black and white, documented School board minutes. One year prior to Sandy Hook, the school board removed the resource officer. How did that work out for them?

Obama isn't doing crap except playing politics.

Almost forgot one important factor. The republicans are questioning the resource officers part of this. Obama camp let it slip. The executive order left out one important word in his executive actions. Does not mention...ARMED school resource officers. Slick willy thought he was good...Republicans are nailing him.

There is no solution.Why

Because it will either cost money no -one has or votes the politicians are afraid of losing.

It's more important with both partiesto keep their jobs rather that solve a problem

The truth is that putting resource officers (whatever that is), armed (or unarmed) guards or police officers in all the schools costs money. Alot of money. Too much money. And for a lone wacko shooting event that will likely never happen in any specific school, based on math odds. All the politicians know this, but would be lynched for saying it. So they all play the politics game and just hope it doesn't happen again, or at least in their district.
