Would it be considered an impeachable offense not to support the very measures that would undoubtedly save the lives of school children?
The Biden administration just admitted they are against protecting school children in the face of America’s mental health crisis stemming from incessant lockdowns and perpetuated by liberal Democrats.
Perfect — now let’s vote them out!
Instead of protecting children by allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons – or as White House press secretary said, “hardening schools” – Biden would instead prefer to just ban guns altogether.
On Tuesday, Karine Jean-Pierre admitted Joe Biden doesn’t “believe in hardening schools.”
CNN’s White House correspondent Kaitlin Collins asked Jean-Pierre whether Biden believes mental illness and school safety is the real issue following the deadly school shooting at Robb Elementary School.
“The president said yesterday that he believes Sen. McConnell is a rational Republican. Sen. McConnell said today that the group of lawmakers that are talking about guns in the wake of Uvalde are talking about the problem which is, quote, ‘mental illness and school safety,’” Collins said. “Does the president agree that that’s the problem here?”
Reasonable enough question, but Jean-Pierre’s response is incredibly revealing.

Republicans have made efforts to combat school shootings by advocating for massive changes to security measures, including allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, increasing armed security guards, and other initiatives.
Donald Trump is fully behind these measures, saying “It’s time to finally harden our schools and protect our children” during a speech at the National Rifle Association conference last weekend.
“What we need now is a top-to-bottom security overhaul at schools all across our country,” Trump reportedly said.
Other security measures include metal detectors, additional fencing, and one point of entry.
Democrat lawmakers voiced vehement disapproval of arming teachers and have insisted a total ban on certain firearms is the correct course of action. Unfortunately for them, the United States is governed by a Constitution that grants American citizens the right to defend themselves using a firearm if necessary.
A bipartisan group of Senators has begun negotiating a bill that may provide funding for additional school security, but Biden’s influence is swaying the debate toward a gun ban of some kind.
It’s only a matter of time before you get a knock on the door from a federal official demanding you turn over your AR-15.
