CALL FOR ACTION
Most Wyoming Rising – Northwest members have deep misgivings about allowing school staff and/or volunteers to carry loaded weapons in the classrooms and hallways of our schools. Help the Cody School Board pass sensible policy that creates safer schools and communities.
WRN Member Nicki Tisthammer is tracking this issue. She writes: “The following is a reply I received from Scott Weber, PCSD#6 Trustee when I wrote him about Sandy Hook Promise (a group that evolved after the shootings at Sandy Hook) and their programs developed to prevent violence and suicides before they occur. I also listed many instances of accidental shootings on school grounds by those charged with protecting students. “
“Be very careful in dealing with this source. Parents who run it are in denial that if guns had been present it would have saved their children. Absolutely wrong. I am getting 100 to 1 in favor of Park6 arming staff. I have talked with over 400 people. If all fairness, please provide me with the number of accidental discharges of police men and women. I’ll save you the time: There’s not enough characters in your computer… Best, Scott Weber
Thank you for taking a few minutes to protect our children, school staff, and community at large.
