Talking About Gun Violence Prevention (without making it partisan)
Following the mass shootings at high schools in Parkland, FL and Santa Fe, TX, Ed Scruggs was the only gun violence prevention advocate to participate in Gov Greg Abbott's round table discussions of gun violence and school safety.
He will share with us the proposals to come out of the round tables and following hearings on school safety. We will learn about the school Marshall Program, as well as the very loose and often unspoken of “Guardian System” and where these things stand now with districts like AISD.
