Democrat-Controlled Gadsden County (FL) Schools To Arm Teachers

Gadsden County, Florida is a Democrat-run, Hillary Clinton-loving, minority majority community in Florida’s rural panhandle…and has decided to follow common sense and arm their teachers.

To put things in perspective, Gadsden County last voted for a Republican in 1972 for Richard Nixon. In 1984, they were the only county in the state to vote against Ronald Reagan and again in 1988 against George H.W. Bush.

You would think that with Gadsden County being such a Democrat hotbed that they’d follow the party line and oppose arming teachers in the county’s schools. Apparently the Gadsden County School board really does believe in their mission statement — putting children first.

Richard Corcoran, former Speaker of the House and current Florida Department of Education Commissioner gave a statement to WTXL News of Tallahassee.

“Florida’s students and parents have rightfully demanded increased security measures, and this is another example of education leaders responding to the call. There are cowards who prey on our schools, and with each new district who takes advantage of this opportunity to safeguard their students, the State of Florida is sending a message that we are united in protecting our state’s future generations,” said Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran.
