And the anti-gun hysteria in our schools continues.
This time one of Coolidge Police Department’s (of Arizona) finest was the target of the anti-gun hysteria at his daughter’s school.
The officer was asked to not wear his gun OR his uniform when picking his daughter up from school because it was causing concern among parents that someone with a gun was at the school.
According to Fox Phoenix,
All Scott Urkov did was drop his daughter off at Entz Elementary School. Little did he know that what he was wearing that day would lead to a call from the principal.“There were some parents who were concerned about that fact that there was a fully armed officer on campus and they spoke to the principal about it,” said Helen Hollands, spokesperson for Mesa Unified School District.
The officer posted the following on his Facebook page shortly thereafter,
“Nothing like your kids school calling and asking if I could not come to pick up my daughter in uniform cause parents were concerned when their kids came home telling them there was a man at school with a gun. Are you freaking kidding me?”
The school has done a bit of a 180 and has now asked the officer to speak to the school during a special assembly on what police officers do for the community.
This is just the latest example of the anti-gun hysteria which has swept our nation’s schools.
