Democratic lawmakers in Illinois have drawn up a piece of legislation that would give extra cash to schools that reallocate funds toward replacing armed security officers with unarmed social workers and behavior therapists.
The controversial bill, proposed by Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch, D-Westchester, would offer grants to schools that use funds meant for school security and instead spend it on mental health services, including hiring social workers or implementing other practices “designed to promote school safety and healthy environments,” as The Associated Press reported.
Seriously, why? WHY would you take away security for virtue signaling? Why would you put kids at an INCREASED risk because YOU don’t like guns? if anyone can make an argument for this, please try. But if you mention ‘if it will save even one life’ I am going to rip your head off. Armed resource officers have already been shown to have saved lives, at least when they don’t cower outside like Broward County Sheriffs.
