Top Republican REVEALS What Works To Stop School Shooters
(TheRedWire.com) – Over the last year, the Democratic-led House spent time drafting and passing legislation without hopes of getting it through the evenly divided Senate, where 60 votes are needed to pass a bill into law. Nevertheless, in the wake of several mass shootings over the last few months, House Democrats moved quickly to pass the Protecting Our Kids Act. On Wednesday, June 8, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) took to the House floor to blast Democrats for working to erode liberties and gun rights established in the US Constitution.
Biggs argued that Democrats aren’t interested in common-sense solutions that protect innocent people from bad actors while respecting Americans’ rights. For example, he said that teachers should be allowed to carry guns in schools to deter those who seek to harm them and their students.
Regarding physical security, Biggs said schools needed to harden their defenses. One way is to install doors that people can hide behind and know that an intruder can’t penetrate. The Arizona Congressman also said that schools should have armed police or security.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) also blasted the Left for their approach to addressing gun violence, saying Americans don’t need any more prayers. The Texas Conservative insinuated that instead of taking God’s name in vain, prayer in school might help solve the problem.
The debate will likely rage on in the halls of Congress until the next crisis distracts the lawmakers. In the meantime, the negotiations in the Senate may not go far.
Stay tuned. Things could change at a moment’s notice.
