Bob Beckel seemed to think that because the Sidwell Friends school is supposedly run by Quakers that there couldn’t possibly be guns there. I read that there are 11 armed guards at the school besides the Secret Service. I would like to get the message to Mr. Beckel.
Between five and seven are listed as police officers and under DC law can be armed. The other "security" personnel can't be, at least under DC law.
Of course, Sidwell is split between two campuses with just on in DC and it's unclear the distribution of the 11, plus they're hiring another 'police office' position.
From even the Left's gun-grabber slanted "fact checking" I'd assume, yes, there's at least one armed guard at Sidwell campuses around the clock.
On that note, it is hypocrisy to suggest other school campuses should be gun free zone because they don't have the political elites children and grandchildren. Obama was dismissive of the suggestion and claimed Americans were "skeptical" of the idea.
Since we already know he wants to improve plans for first responders and make administrators aware of ways to handle gunmen, it doesn't make sense not to push to have at least one armed officer per campus if he's serious. That puts at least one armed first responder there immediately.
