WATCH Florida sheriff has gamechanger plan to arm teachers and end gunfree school zones
A Florida sheriff has devised a plan to arm teachers and end gun-free school zones – and he wants the program implemented nationwide.
“There has to be a line-of-defense. It’s not something we want to do — it’s something we have to do,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told “Fox and Friends” on Saturday.
Dubbed the “Sentinel Program,” Judd explained that his department has devised and already implemented a plan that would become a “game-changer” if it was implemented on school campuses nationwide.
The plan is simple: Arm teachers with concealed weapons and train them to effectively defend students should the need ever arise. The program has already been put into action at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, which is in Judd’s jurisdiction. – READ MORE
