Many bleeding heart liberals around the nation have been calling on the federal government to do something about our nation’s school shootings, but their proposals have all been rooted in fantasy.

What the democrats and their liberal cohorts want is a full repeal of the Second Amendment – something that literally cannot happen in America, no matter how hard you try.  Simply put; those who support the Second are far better prepared for your attempts to deny them their rights than you are to take those rights away, and it won’t end pretty.

So, instead of repealing the Second Amendment, they simply make gun ownership difficult or nearly impossible, all through the use of the federal government.

But what happens when the federal government actually responds to school shootings in a productive way?  The left simply refuses to acknowledge it.

The Department of Justice awarded a six figure grant to Texas this week in hopes of defraying overtime costs incurred responding to a school shooting earlier this year.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance awarded the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division $1 million, according to a news release published Thursday. The grant will cover a portion of the millions spent by local and state agencies responding to the May 18 shooting at Santa Fe High School in Galveston County.

The DOJ allocated the funds from the Department Fiscal Year 2018 Emergency Federal Law Enforcement Assistance (EFLEA) grant program, which is designed to help states respond to “unanticipated emergencies that cannot be addressed with local resources alone.”

“When there is a tragedy, the Department of Justice is there for police and first responders,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “We honor and respect the law officers who serve at the state, local, and tribal levels, and we continue to support them and their life-saving work every single day.”

Now, can we please get back to the discussion about how best to prevent these tragedies?

Here’s a hint:  It involves more security, not more restrictions.
