According to the report, about half of that money ($50 million) will be going to “bullet-resistant shields for school police officers.” What? Yes. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, the same guy that said grandparents needed to die for capitalism during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, got his wish: bulletproof shields that he asked for in lieu of gun safety laws.

That’s not all. Another $17.1 million will be going to Texas school districts to spend on buying “silent panic technology.” So half of this money is going to bulletproof shields for the militarized police that sat outside for an hour while children were being murdered; and a little less than one-fifth of the money is going to be spent on giving schools technology that banks have had since World War II.

Money well spent.

Very well spent. Law enforcement's policy of rushing in to stop a school shooting is a good thing, but no law enforcement officers wants to die. Those shields allow them to immediately move in and put the shooter down. There should be one in the trunk of every patrol car.

I'm for more police equipment, but that wouldn't have helped here. This one was a people problem. They had a shield and did nothing for an hour.


That was bad police work.

The day after the shooting when it was claimed that there were no level 4 shields available (there were at least two seen just minutes into the incident) I checked the price on them from the normal police supply houses like Galls and they were all sold out......I guess departments across the land said "oh shit" and rushed to get them.

And of course, by "grandparents needed to die for capitalism", you mean he said shutting down the country was a bad idea, which of course was absolutely right. Protecting the old & very sick was the right call along, not cowering over a flu that could be treated with generics.

A little butt hurt that nobody is going to get rid of their guns no matter how many mass shootings the left gives us?
Trained police sat outside & let the massacre play out but you think this means we should strip law abiding gun owners of their weapons.
Not gonna happen.

Or will you surprise us all & actually have an original thought that would be worth considering?
Didn't think so
