After the tragic school shooting in Texas that left nineteen schoolchildren and two teachers dead, Republicans and Democrats have offered different solutions to stem violence in schools.

Democrats are predictably pushing gun control and domestic terrorism legislation that will target conservatives.  Some moderate Republicans in the Senate, including Mitch McConnell, seem open to their solution.

Other Republicans have offered a bipartisan solution that would be agreeable to most people, where the Department of Homeland Security would conduct research in to best practices for school safety and security measures.

The bill, proposed by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wi.) was dead on arrival after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-Ny.) shot it down to score cheap political points and push for gun control instead.

The bill was supported by parents of the Parkland school shooting victims.

“Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) on Wednesday, in the wake of a mass shooting at an elementary school in southern Texas, has just used his powers to kill a new proposed school safety bill.

The bill would have charged the Department of Homeland Security with establishing standards for best practices in the area of school safety, and to “collect clearinghouse data analytics, user feedback on the implementation of best practices and recommendations identified by the clearinghouse, and any evaluations conducted on these best practices and recommendations.”

Schumer, however, commented publicly that he felt that the bill would lead to “more guns in schools,”

Senator Johnson promptly replied to Schumer’s Tweet, saying “Not surprising that the Democrat leader would lie about the bill he blocked that parents of Parkland victims have been trying to pass for years. Dems aren’t looking for solutions, they want wedge issues that they hope will keep them in power. Sick.”
