Sheriff: 'It's Time To Take Action' - Free Gun Classes To Teachers

Ohio Sheriff offers free concealed carry classes to teachers after Florida shooting and warns 'copycats are coming'

Hamilton, Ohio – An Ohio Sheriff has offered free concealed carry classes to teachers who are from his county as well as offering free training on school shootings.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones tweeted Feb. 18 the offer and said a limited number of openings would be available.

Since his post, the sheriff’s office stated they received 50 emails in 20 minutes.

The sheriff also released a video (below) where he said school districts need to have armed staff in schools. Sheriff Jones suggested retired police officers, military veterans, or armed teachers who would be trained as possibilities.

“We need to put armed personnel in schools. We need to look at metal detectors. This is not going to stop or go away,” Sheriff Jones said. “But we need to be prepared and we don’t need to have our heads in the sand.”

Sheriff Jones also said schools need to rethink fire drills. The sheriff said fire danger isn’t as much a concern as it was years ago.

Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz pulled the fire alarm in the high school which sent people in the hallways where they were easier to shoot. The sheriff said copycat killers may try the same thing.

You can see the sheriff's video below.

I agreevand not agree.
I say arm administrators and security who are retired cops and military. And who pass psych test and background and shooting proficiency test.
As a cop you hqve to pass oral psych test and written test before being a cop allowed to carry firearm.

@bronx163 and where is the money going to come from for this plan?

bronx163

Why is it when it comes to defending schools with armed men, its money issue?
We never seem to run out of money for bs aocial programs and welfare.

The money is there. Stop sending mexico millions in aide and other nations who are not friends of ours.

I say also start a local volanteer group. Small towns have ret marines army sf seals cops. Have people donate time every month and get 3k tax right off on property. These guys have the training. Redo background and gove them psych test like cops have to go through and have them qual in firearm. And they are good to go.

@bronx163 now, would you honestly expect your political party to make this happen?

bronx163

I said its an idea.
Some idea is better than adding one more ineffected gun law to the 150,000 fed,state,local gun laws we have now.
A mental health warrant should of been generated and executed on florida shooters house and alert sent to NICS IN DOJ and local sheriff should removed all firearms.
If someone has been deemed mental case and threat guns should be removed immediately. But social media is at fault here too. U put uo pro teump pro life pro build the wall twitter, yourube, instagram, fb censors automaticly freeze yiur account of suspend and ban you. But this kid got a pass for videoing self he wanted to be professional school shooter and all the kids new he one day would be from that school.

@Hi_estCommDenomn your party never even entertained the thought. Perhaps the funding can come from whatever monies we currently spend toward any Illegal immigrants. Americans first! Hire some screened and vetted, then properly trained unemployed Veterans.

Take the billions we send overseas to unfavor nations and use those funds and also take from bs grants u.s. gives to donresearch on how chickens walk funny or other nonsense research. Or stop the program of giving every inmate a dam ipad or the obama cellphone program.
No right to have a cellphone. Or free wifi to every inner city housing project. Or grants to build sound barrier walls in middle of deaert hwys. Stupid wasteful spending.
Or even take from senate and house. Free barbers and salons and cleaners and pharmacies for these guys. Thats millions every yr. there is plenty of money just stop wastng it on bs social justice warrior fronts of democratic leaders. And where is the outcry on violent war video games showing and desensitizing youth re to taking human life? Takng human like is not a game.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 social media is definitely not at fault. You're just moving blame now.

And why do so many other first world countries succeed where we have failed? Here's one hint. They don't add more guns to the equation.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@stupidisasstupiddoes most vets don't want to continue doing what they did in the military. That's why we get out. Who wants to do the same job for less money?

Thats you.
Pleanty out there who would.
And violent video game industry is a contributing factor. They are also the democrats money donor base. Banning ar rifles will not stop shootings.

They will make bomb use cars use a crossbow. They will always find a way to kill. Need more sheepdogs not more feel good useless gun control.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 your budget is all over the place. First off, research is of the highest importance and they are already strapped as it is. You can't tskr money from a totally unrelated department to create a whole new department.

Next, the inmate iPad program is at one prison, and that prison is run by a private company. What you're advocating is for the government to real locate private funds for public use. That doesn't sound very Republican of you.

Next, ObamaPhone is what, a 14 year old argument? That money is long gone, and that was a Bush program anyway and the Republican party shit it down. Obama just carried it out.

Next, who is getting free wifi? Please show me proof of that.

Next, taking money from Congress, I'm all for that. You have a point there.

Finally, video games do not cause or increase violence. Never have, never will. If you think there's some kind of connection there, please explain how hundreds of millions of people play video games all over the world, but America is the one with the mass shooting problem?

It sounds like you're just saying shit to say shit.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 but stopping a bomb is much, much easier than a mass shooting. Bombs take planning, and bombings are thwarted by the FBI constantly.

With cars and crossbows, I bet you couldn't kill 17 people. None of your argument holds, bruh.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 think about how many schools there are. How do you prioritize which schools get veterans first? And how exactly do you plan on recruiting millions of veterans to watch schools?

bronx163

It can be done

Said there are grants for bs research that does nothing.
There is bs domestic social justice funding that has to stop.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 again, I don't think you know how many schools there are, and how much protection would cost. You're asking for a whole new branch of armed enforcement. how much do you think a few million will get you?

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 what can work, though, is better mental health standards and a ban on AR-15s and all their variants. Call me whatever names you want, but it has already been proven in many other nations that limiting certain firearms causes a drastic downturn in mass shootings.

50 emails in 20 minutes. Pretty impressive. Looks like there is a great amount of interest. Almost bet some of the gun manufacturers might give a big discount or donate some guns.

If we took out the statistics from the cities of Chicago, LA, and Baltimore - and these cities have the most stringent gun laws in America - America would be in the bottom 10 of countries with murders by firearms. It's NOT a GUN problem, it's a PEOPLE problem!

There IS funding available . . . but only if they WANT to use it for those purposes instead of their pork barrel projects.

BTW - Switzerland actually encourages all their citizens to own guns and they have some of the lowest murder statistics in the world. Your theory doesn't hold water, and has been proven wrong on many occasions.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@HonestC haha, Switzerland doesnt encourage all to have guns. Where do you get your news? In fact, they have stricter gun laws than we do. They just have better-behaved citizens.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@HonestC this is for Switzerland:

"In order to purchase most weapons, the purchaser must obtain a weapon acquisition permit (art. 8 WG/LArm). Swiss citizens and foreigners with a C permit over the age of 18 who are not psychiatrically disqualified nor identified as posing security problems, and who have a clean criminal record can request such a permit.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@HonestC additiinally, if you sell a gun privately, you are required by law to register that you sold it. If something bad is done with that weapon, you could be held liable for aiding and abetting. What were you saying about me being proven wrong?

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@HonestC oh, are you aware that you can only buy ammo for the guns you legally own? And you have to present your current, updated license to buy ammo for that gun. Plus, the business who sold you the ammo reports who you are and how much was sold to you to the central bureau, so it's tracked.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@HonestC it's also pretty difficult to get a carry permit, and normally the only ones that have them in Switzerland are active military, police, and security.

You didn't research AT ALL before commenting, did you?

Banning the ar will not stop this. There are over 300 million guns in this country.
You go knocking on doors to disarm Americans i predict its going be a very bad day. First stop labeling the reaponsible gun owner a demon. 2nd fix NICS to have mental hygene alerts to gun dealers. 3. Make schools have harden security. And armed trained security. Make mandatory 100 million dollar fine to social media firms who fail to call fed state local police when threats or mentaly concerning statements are
made online.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 dummy. It's not up to social media to report. There's not enough staff in the world to keep up with that. It's up to users to report.

bronx163
bronx163

Here we go.
Not enough staff.
They have auto scanners for key phrases on social media sites and they all have AI systems set up.
So they have the capacity to detect videos and phrass like florida shooter made.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 just by how you typed that phrase, you don't know how any of that works.

Algorithms build their libraries by user interface. If a bunch of users flag a video, thrn the algorithm kicks in. It's not an auto scanner going at all times. There are gigs and gigs of information being uploaded every minute.

I love the idea of hardening soft targets. I hope this is a growing trend.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 you're right, the content creator reported them, they didn't remove a video. They removed a comment. That's how it should go.

And if you think I'm going to any of those inbred meth areas you like to visit, you have me fooled.

bronx163

They should of notified pd and fbi.

Thats why there has to be accountability of social media firms. 100!million dollar fine or 10 yrs prison.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 let me see if I can get you to understand this.

you've said on here that cops can't police everything, right? If a cop sees a crime, they try and stop it. But a very large portion of what they do is respond to reports. That's exactly how it works online.

What you're proposing is akin to saying "if a cop doesn't stop a crime, they should be fined."

bronx163
bronx163

No cops who are allowed to be cops in certain jurisdiction. Are proactive and actually catch shit bags in the act. Far left jurisdiction that attack their own cops get reactive policing. And yea cop can not be everywhere.
But online fb youtube twitter instagram have mexhanisms inplace to flag and alert when people make certain statements and videos. Ask any pro life pro trump pro immigration people and they will tell you thaey are suspended and kicked out quick for their statements and videos.

Face it you can only bash bwhat are you ideas and solutions besides elect hillary and force disarm Americans.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 yeah. those people get flagged due to reporting. that's how social media works.

and i would do what Switzerland and Germany do. Both those countries have a thorough gun culture, but with a fraction of the gun crime we have. First, mental health, and health in general, should be much more accessible for all people, and especially for poor people. They suffer the most with diagnosed mental illnesses. This is entirely possible within our current budget; so much so, that the ACA was addressing this exact issue.

Second, backwards accountability on all gun and ammo sales. Just like Switzerland does. Someone earlier thought they knew how Switzerland's gun policies work - they love guns as well, but they also have stricter, common sense gun laws that we don't have. Again, all these measures are fully implementable on current budget and we already have the agencies in place that would monitor those transactions.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@bronx163 do you see how i not once mentioned taking guns from people? because that's how most people who want sensible firearm control think.
