Parkland Dad Heartbroken Schumer Blocked School Safety Bill

There is a bipartisan school safety bill sitting on the desk of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and he will not pass it.

The bill is called the Luke and Alex School Safety Act.

The father of one of the boys the bill was named after is now crushed that Schumer is playing politics on a bill that would actually help prevent incidents like the one that happened in Uvalde.

Systems in Place

Schumer pointed to the fact that some of the protocols represented in that legislation were in place.

There was a security officer and the school had locking doors.

The problem, however, was that the officer did not put the shooter down, police waited to go into the building, and the school doors were not locked.

Those children would likely still be alive if the plan had been executed.

But, this was Schumer’s response…

That is solely because he wants wide-sweeping gun control.

Senator Johnson responded…

Max Schachter, whose 14-year-old son Alex was killed during the Parkland, FL, mass shooting, is devastated.

He stated, “How does a website put guns in schools? It’s ridiculous.

“It has nothing to do with guns. It’s just a website of best practices. It doesn’t mandate anything.

“I thought that after 19 children and two teachers were just murdered in Uvalde, Texas, partisan politics will be put aside and that families might at least have some positive news out of Congress from their elected leaders.

“I was naive to think that a horrible mass shooting would make people do the right thing. And unfortunately, you know, he didn’t. He blocked it.”

“It’s heartbreaking.”

Schumer, as predicted, is using this bill as leverage for the Domestic Terrorism bill the Democrats want to pass, which the GOP is blocking.

The reason that is being done, however, is because of the inflammatory language in the bill.

During his floor speech, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) explained, “Today we will have a bill before us ostensibly titled and ostensibly about the subject of domestic terrorism.

“But this bill would be more accurately called the Democrat plan to brand and insult our police and soldiers as White supremacists and neo-Nazis — how insulting.”
