The United States – Great Evils, Great Means? In the United States, Madison County, North Carolina, decided to literally withdraw heavy artillery in the face of the school shootings that regularly plague the country. The district’s school system decided to put AR-15 rifles in emergency lockers at each of its six schools. This is part of an enhanced security plan in the wake of the tragic shooting in Ovaldi, Texas, which killed 21 people on May 24.
“We were able to install AR-15 rifles and safes in all district schoolsSheriff Buddy Harwood told the Asheville Citizen Times. We also have hack tools [comme des pieds-de-biche, NDLR] to enter these vaults. We have extra magazines with ammo in these lockers »
Breakouts should allow police to break through fortified doors without having to wait for firefighters to arrive.
“I don’t want to run into the car to take the AR-15”
Buddy Harwood said he wanted “Make sure his deputies are ready.” In the event of a school shooting. A problem that exists especially since it has been established that the Ovaldi police did not take enough action to prevent the killing.
“I don’t want to run into the car to take the AR-15, because it is a waste of time. I hope we never need it, but I do want my buddies to be as prepared as possible.”he added.
The addition of semi-automatic weapons is just part of the enhanced security measures for Madison County schools. Among them is the addition of a panic button system in each building and the establishment of a security liaison officer in the school district.
Answer ” awesome “In the face of armed violence
However, this extreme measure is far from unanimous. According to Alison Anderman, senior advisor and director of local policy at the Giffords Law Center for Gun Violence Prevention, this response to “The Unique Epidemic of Armed Violence” from the country ” awesome “. “Where there are more guns, there is more gun violence”justified it USA Today.
Same for Andy Pelosi, co-founder and CEO of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus. On the one hand, he doesn’t think this initiative really changes anything in the event of an attack and on the other hand, he’s worried that unauthorized people might gain access to the vaults.
For him, the solution lies above all in arms control. ” We should ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Part of this discussion should be, “Where do the young people who commit these acts get their weapons from?” and Does he answer? USA Today.
