Why do some Democrats wish to make mass shootings easier? Yes, it seems to be an unfair accusation. But when you read this at Bearing Arms, you gotta wonder
Democrats have these weird ideas sometimes. They seem to think that if they hope really, really hard, bad things will magically disappear and we’ll all live peaceful, happy lives.
That’s the only explanation for this Illinois bill other than pure, outright evil.
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.
Yes, you read that correctly folks. They want to pay schools that abet those who would commit a mass shooting, or any other type of attack on schools
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.
“This increased presence of law enforcement in schools does not necessarily enhance school safety,” Michelle Mbekani-Wiley from the Sargent Shriver Center for Poverty Law told The Associated Press. “Instead it dramatically increases the likelihood that students will be unnecessarily swept into the criminal justice system often for mere adolescent or disruptive behavior.”
The stupid burns folks, it really does. Cops are BAD, enforcing laws is BAD! So, endangering kids is OK to the left, as long as it furthers their social justice platform.
