Where was the liberal “outrage” over Clinton’s “COPS in School” federal grant program

Quote:Another day, another sad yet infuriating adventure into “that was then, this is now” Democrat hypocrisy – via Bryan Preston:

The NRA came out with a proposal to post armed police officers at schools to prevent or at least minimize the next school shooting. The left promptly called the idea nuts.

Turns out, it wasn’t a new idea. President Bill Clinton proposed the same idea in April 2000.

He implemented it, too, only to see Barack Obama cut the funding for it.

Quote:So, if you’re keeping score, the NRA agrees with a 12-year old Bill Clinton position on school security. The left just called a former Democrat president “crazy.”

The program Preston is talking about is called “COPS in School” – a federal grant program started in 1999:

Quote:The COPS in Schools (CIS) grant program is designed to help law enforcement agencies hire new, additional school resource officers (SROs) to engage in community policing in and around primary and secondary schools. CIS provides an incentive for law enforcement agencies to build collaborative partnerships with the school community and to use community policing efforts to combat school violence.

That page was an old page that covered through 2005. I don’t know what the status of the federal program is now, but I did see this recent article from KMOV that sheds a little light:

Quote:ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOv.com) — Law enforcment and schools around St. Louis are asking Congress to help prevent another attack like the tragedy in Connecticut.

More than 100 school leaders met with area police departments to discuss school safety.

Officials plan to ask Congress to renew the Cops In School initiative. Federal funding to put officers in schools ended in 2003.

“So what we’re looking for is for Congress to reinstitute the Cops in Schools program, said St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch. “We think that’s the best way to deal with an armed intruder, is to have a fully trained, armed police officer on the property.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

At the NRA press conference didn't he mention Obama cutting the funding for it? Seriously if you saw this stuff in a movie you would never believe it.
The law? The law is a human institution...

Utah teachers are already allowed to carry in the classroom and more are now considering it. They get it.

Quote:SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – In light of the Newtown, Connecticut shooting many conversations have started regarding how better to protect students and one of the ideas has been to arm teachers. Here in Utah, educators can already carry firearms into classrooms.

Granite School District Spokesperson Ben Horsley explained, “State law allows a teacher with a concealed carry permit to carry a weapon in our schools.”

Horsley couldn’t comment on how many teachers carry firearms but told ABC 4 News, “I know that they do exist.”

If a teacher has a permit and chooses to carry a weapon onto campus in the Granite School district they have to keep it on them at all times.

“They wouldn’t be able to put it in a desk, secure it or even lock it in that fashion,” said Horsley. “They would have to maintain it on their person.”

More educators in Utah are considering carrying firearms. The tactical gear company OPSGEAR is co-hosting a special course just for educators looking to get their concealed carry permit as well as better learning how to react in an emergency situation.

“Librarians, teachers, janitors, anyone who works at a school,” explained OPSGEAR CEO David Burnell of the upcoming event.

And we all know that Utah is a hotbed of school shootings. They have shoot outs in the halls every day.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Great! Hopefully enough national attention can be given to this so this become standard practice... and no AWB nonsense.
