Didn't think so.
Maybe we could find someone else to do it. But where does one find teachers nowadays?
Its stupid but fair is fair. If I can’t drive within 1000 feet of a school while carrying a firearm then cops shouldn’t be allowed either.
I taught for 15 years and can assure you that some of the most ignorant people can be found at public schools and universities. They can be brilliant in their field but functionally illiterate on most anything else. This sounds like something that could have happened in the district I taught at!!
“The school has apologized, saying that they didnt realize that Urkov (pictured) would take the phone call as an affront and now wants to turn the misunderstanding into a teachable moment.”
Urgggh.... if any libs ever spewed this mealy mouthed crap about “teachable moments” to my face, I’d be sorely pressed not to give them a teachable moment involving feet and rear ends.
He might be required to wear his gun.
We had an idiot receptionist several years ago that told a State Trooper that he had to leave his gun with her at the front desk. LOL!
I truly doubt the story that some parents called with a complaint. It sounds more like an excuse to justify the school forcing their no-gun rule upon a policeman father.
One of those stories where neither party is right.
On one side you have school officials indoctrinating kids in hoplophobia.
On the other side you have jack booted government thug who thinks that the rules that apply to me OBVIOUSLY don’t apply to him.
It is perfectly legal for armed police officers to be on school grounds. You should not have to endure the inconvenience of going to our home and changing your clothes before picking your daughter up from school. Other parents are allowed to pick up their children on their way home fro work without having to make multiple trips.
I recommend you tell the principal to go f##k himself.
Of course, I suppose you could say it more politely... ...if you must.
You have no such authority.
My Gun is not evil or offensive.
It is the tool I use to do my job, which is in part, to protect the faculty and students in this school.
Get over yourself.
Real, mature adults would tell the other adults pissing themselves to grow the eff up, the real world is not marshmallows and lollipops, we have armed police and we have ccw people, who will not bother them if they don’t bother those people, and to get the eff over it.
Yeah so if they have some emergency, I guess they’ll call out the shrinks, since they obviously don’t want cops present.
At least they backed off. How many of these incidents go unpublished and fester among the population?
Sounds like the school really wants to make up for this faux paux, but (with a principal like this one) I can’t blame the police department for saying, no more on this, let’s move on.
As they are conditioning these young kids to hate guns, they are conditioning them to concentrate on sex. I’m beginning to think that the NEA has a very high ratio of perverts that want unarmed victims....
The principal of Entz Elementary School should be fired. No discussion, just fire him/her/it.
There needs to be a public policy of zero tolerance for incompetence and complete lack of common sense in our educational system.
Fire the damn principal or defund the school.... apologies be damned.
I don’t believe they have the right to ask this of the officer. I’d show up in it for spite.
Last month on a trip out west I had a Brit in-law almost freak out when he saw a Park Ranger with a sidearm. He was seriously concerned when he saw one with a gun at Yellowstone. I had to explain to him about (1) dangerous four-legged critters and (2) dangerous two-legged critters.
So if an incident happens at the school and the police are called, should they go home and change clothes first before they respond? (Without their gun obviously!)
