We’re going to train you.”Jones said 350 people signed up the last time they were offered for teachers and administrators.”This is a terrible tragedy– but what we’ve got to do is get school resource officers in the schools, but that doesn’t stop school shootings, we had a school resource officer when we had a school shooting. I’m encouraging school boards to put armed personnel in the schools, plus teachers. It’s up to the school boards.”Can we make it totally secure? No. But, we can make it more secure,” he continued.Sheriff Jones also added that in the event President Biden signs an executive order that rolls back any portion of the Second Amendment, he will not enforce the limitation of access to firearms for Butler County residents.”I saw when the president of the United States said he was relooking at the Second Amendment.
