Kentucky School Safety Improvements Worked, Law Enforcement Must Be Properly Trained

During Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” House Oversight and Reform Committee Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said school safety measures Kentucky enacted to preventing school shootings had worked and that investing in those improvements would garner bipartisan support in Congress. Comer also argued that “we also need to make sure law enforcement is properly trained. And that’s something that’s called into question here with what happened in Texas a few days ago.

Comer said, “I know in Kentucky we had a terrible school shooting a few years ago. And we made an investment to try to make our schools much safer. You have to go through two doors and get buzzed in to get into just about every school in Kentucky now. And it’s a wise investment. This is an investment for which I think there would be bipartisan support in Congress. And I think we need to focus on school safety and move forward from there when we talk about preventing these terrible disasters in the future.

He added that Kentucky’s school safety improvements have been effective, and “it’s something that every American deserves who sends their children to public schools to be sure that that school is fortified, that that school is safe. And it doesn’t seem like that’s the case in Texas. We also have to make sure law enforcement is properly trained. And that’s something that’s being questioned here with what happened in Texas. a few days ago.
