“Today marks 8 years since 20 first-graders and 6 educators were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School,” she tweeted. “To honor the lives lost in this terrible tragedy, it’s past time we implement common-sense gun safety reforms to keep our children safe.”
When the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary occurred, teachers and staff were unarmed, and there were no armed resource officers on campus. Nonetheless, Harris made clear her position that teachers should get a raise rather than a gun.
The Biden campaign page reads, “We should be passing rational gun laws, not requiring educators who already have too much on their plates to also protect the safety of their students.”
The “common-sense gun safety” being pushed for the Biden administration includes a ban on the sale of firearms Democrats call “assault weapons,” as well as a ban on “high-capacity” magazines, and the implementation of universal background checks. One of the “gun safety” pledges of the incoming Biden administration is to “prohibit the use of federal funds to arm or train educators to discharge firearms.”
We already have commonsense, rational gun control laws. Criminals and the criminally insane by definition don’t obey laws. The answer is not stricter gun control, which doesn’t work in any of the Democrat-controlled cities that already have the strictest gun laws on the books.
