Schumer blocks Senate GOP school safety bill, angering Republicans
Schumer said the legislation could be considered if Republicans agree to debate on the domestic terrorism bill.

Do Liberals really look for solutions ?

Nah, they just need a Crisis to keep going for Election Time !


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday blocked a school safety bill that has Republicans crying foul.

After the horrific  mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school  that killed 19 children and two teachers, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., asked for the Luke and Alex School Safety Act to be passed by unanimous consent.

The bill, named after  Parkland, Florida, shooting  victims Luke Hoyer and Alex Schachter, would require the Department of Homeland Security to establish a "Federal Clearinghouse on School Safety Best Practices" for use by state and local educational and law-enforcement agencies, institutions of higher education, health professionals, and the public. And it  would require DHS  to "collect clearinghouse data analytics, user feedback on the implementation of best practices and recommendations identified by the clearinghouse, and any evaluations conducted on these best practices and recommendations." 

The clearinghouse, which is already available at SchoolSafety.gov,  would be codified into law  with the bill’s passage.

Schumer objected to Johnson’s request, claiming on Twitter that the bill "could see more guns in schools."

"The truth: There were officers at the school in Texas,"  Schumer tweeted . "The shooter got past them. We need real solutions—We will vote on gun legislation starting with the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act."

On the Senate floor, Schumer said the legislation could be considered if Republicans agree to debate on the domestic terrorism bill. Johnson responded that it’s "a sad day for the United States Senate,"  the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported .

Johnson later tweeted: "Not surprising that the Democrat leader would lie about the bill he blocked that parents of Parkland victims have been trying to pass for years. Dems aren’t looking for solutions, they want wedge issues that they hope will keep them in power. Sick."

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., who co-sponsored the bill, blasted Schumer as "a liar and a hack."

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who also co-sponsored the bill, tweeted: "The truth: Schumer blocked a bipartisan bill the makes the school safety clearinghouse  schoolsafety.gov  permanent because radical left wing activists oppose it."

Meanwhile, the Senate is set to vote Thursday on whether to advance the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, which passed the House last week after the  Buffalo mass shooting  that killed 10 people.

That bill would require  the domestic terrorism components of the DHS, the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to jointly report on domestic terrorism, as well as create "an interagency task force to analyze and combat white supremacist and neo-Nazi infiltration of the uniformed services and federal law enforcement agencies."

Just more proof that Chuckie is more interested in Dem optics than helping to vote on a bipartisan bill to actually help keep children safe

Typical Democrat.  Screws over the people again.  He and everybody else that voted against this should be removed from office and stripped of EVERYTHING.

This is just further proof that politicians don't want to try to fix problems, they want to keep them around so that they can be used to hammer the other side.  Partisan politics has overtaken Washington and we are not better for it.
