Hannity: The key to protecting schools is security


ALL RIGHT, IN THE WAKE OF THIS TRAGIC SCHOOL SHOOTING IN FLORIDA, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SHOWING SOME VERY STRONG LEADERSHIP. IS HE NOW TRYING TO FIND WAYS TO KEEP AMERICA’S SCHOOLS SAFE, OUR KIDS SAFE. ENDURING ANOTHER WHITE HOUSE LISTENING SESSION TODAY HE OFFERED UP IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS. LET’S TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY. >> WE HAVE TO HARDEN OUR SCHOOLS, NOT SOFTEN THEM UP. A GUN-FREE ZONE TO A KILLER OR SOMEBODY THAT WANTS TO BE A KILLER, THAT’S LIKE GOING IN FOR THE ICE CREAM. THAT’S LIKE HERE I AM, TAKE ME. WE HAVE TO GET SMART ON GUN-FREE ZONES. WHEN THEY SAY IT SAYS THIS IS A GUN-FREE ZONE, THAT MEANS NOBODY HAS A GUN EXCEPT THEM. NOBODY IS GOING TO BE SHOOTING BULLETS IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. THEY SEE THAT AS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TARGET. THEY LIVE FOR GUN-FREE ZONES. I THINK A CONCEALED PERMIT FOR HAVING TEACHERS AND LETTING PEOPLE KNOW THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE BUILDING WITH GUN, YOU WON’T HAVE, IN MY OPINION, YOU WON’T HAVE THESE SHOOTINGS, BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE ARE COWARDS.

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO WALK INTO A SCHOOL IF 20% OF THE TEACHERS HAVE GUNS. IT MAY BE 10% OR MAY BE 40%. WHAT I WOULD RECOMMEND DOING IS THE PEOPLE THAT DO CARRY, WE GIVE THEM A BONUS. WE GIVE THEM A LITTLE BIT OF A BONUS, BUT THE NRA IS READY TO DO THINGS PEOPLE LIKE TO BLAME THEM AND THEY DO HAVE POWER AND ALL OF THAT. BUT THEY WANT TO DO — THEY ACTUALLY CAME UP WITH CERTAIN OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS THAT WE HAVE NOW.

BUT WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO TOUGHEN — I TOLD THEM WE HAVE TO TOUGHEN THEM UP. WE REALLY DO HAVE TO HAVE OFFENSIVE MEASURES, ALSO. I KNOW PEOPLE DON’T LIKE TALKING ABOUT IT. BUT WE NEED OFFENSIVE AS WELL AS DEFENSIVE. WE HAVE TO BE TOTALLY DEVIN. IF WE DON’T HAVE OFFENSIVE MEASURES, WITHIN THESE SCHOOLS, WE ARE JUST — YOU ARE JUST KIDDING YOURSELVES, FOLKS. >> Sean: ALL RIGHT, YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE PRESIDENT A LOT OF CREDIT BECAUSE INSTEAD OF ENGAGING IN THE SAME OLD TIRED BACK AND FORTH, REPEATING THE SAME TALKING POINTS, THE POLITICIANS, THE MEDIA USE AFTER THESE TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOLUTIONS, SOLVING THE PROBLEM.

NOW, HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE. WE HAVE A CHOICE IN ALL OF THIS. DO WE KEEP HAVING THE EXACT SAME POLITICAL DEBATE THAT WE HAVE HAD ONGOING SINCE COLUMBINE THAT’S NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYBODY’S MINDS OR DO WE ACTUALLY FIX THE PROBLEM? DO WE WANT TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN? NOW, REMEMBER, AFTER 9/11, WELL, WE FIXED THE PROBLEM OF AIRCRAFT SECURITY AND I AM A VERY STRONG SUPPORTER OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT. I’M SURE PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM ARE AS WELL TONIGHT. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] PREDICTABLY THE LEFT AND THE LIBERAL MEDIA THAT ARE TALKING ABOUT GETTING RID OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT, ARE TALKING ABOUT CONFISCATING GUNS LIKE AUSTRALIA FOR A MINUTE, LET’S TAKE POLITICS OUT OF ALL OF THIS. LET’S JUST FOCUS ON THE ISSUE HOW DO WE KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE IN SCHOOL IN THE PRESIDENT SAYING HE WANTS SOLUTIONS AND THAT’S WHY HE SAT DOWN WITH STUDENTS AND PARENTS AND TEACHERS AND GOVERNORS AND STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS. NOW, HE TALKED AND HE LISTENED. AND BY THE WAY HE WANTS TO HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT. THIS IS A SIMPLE TRUTH. THE LEFT AND THE MEDIA CAN TALK ALL THEY WANT ABOUT BANNING CERTAIN TYPES OF WEAPONS USED BY THESE EVIL MANIACS.

BUT THE THING IS YOU COULD NEVER STOP THE EVIL THAT EXIST IN SOME PEOPLE’S HEARTS. AND IF YOU TAKE AWAY AND YOU BAN ONE WEAPON, THESE KILLERS, THOSE WITH EVIL INTENT WILL USE SOMETHING ELSE. WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS HAPPEN. LET’S GO BACK TO THE VIRGINIA TECH SHOOTING, THE DEADLIEST SHOOTING IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY AND IN THAT CASE THE SHOOTER USED PISTOLS. AND WHAT THE LEFT, THE MEDIA CANNOT SEEM TO COMPREHEND OR DON’T WANT TO COMPREHEND IS THAT EVIL EXISTS IN THIS WORLD THERE ARE MURDERERS, THERE ARE RAPISTS.

CHILD MOLESTERS, THERE IS EVIL. IF THEY DON’T USE A RIFLE IN THE CASE OF THESE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS THEN IT’S GOING TO END UP BEING A HANDGUN THE NEXT TIME. AFTER THAT IF IT’S NOT A HANDGUN IT’S GOING TO BE ANOTHER TYPE OF WEAPON OR TOOL. REMEMBER THE BOSTON BOMBERS THEY USED EXPLOSIVES THAT WERE MADE FROM EVERY DAY PRODUCTS THAT ARE READILY AVAILABLE. OTHER TERRORISTS HAVE USED TRUCKS, VANS, AND CARS.

OTHERS HAVE USED KNIVES. ARE WE GOING TO BAN EVERYTHING? AS MUCH AS THE LEFT AND THE MEDIA WANT TO THINK THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN FULLY STOP THESE KILLERS WITH REGULATIONS AND LAWS, THEY CANNOT. BECAUSE PEOPLE THAT HAVE THIS EVIL, THEY WILL ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO CAUSE PAIN AND SUFFERING AND INFLICT MAXIMUM CARNAGE. THE ONLY THING THAT COMES WITH BANNING WEAPONS IS THAT YOU WILL INFRINGE ON THE RIGHTS OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] WHAT’S MISSING ARE REAL SOLUTIONS TO PROTECT THESE INNOCENT KIDS. THEY BROUGHT UP A LOT OF GREAT IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS THAT WE HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING ON THIS SHOW. IN THE CASE OF THE FLORIDA SCHOOL SHOOTING. THERE WERE WARNING SIGNS ALL OVER THE PLACE ABOUT NIKOLAS CRUZ. WE KNEW THAT HE WAS MENTALLY ILL. WE KNEW HE WAS UNSTABLE. WE KNEW HE WAS CAPABLE OF DOING SOMETHING.

OF THE STUDENTS ALL SEEMED TO KNOW IT AND THE SAME GOES FOR THE TEACHERS. THERE ARE REPORTS THAT POLICE WERE ACTUALLY CALLED TO CRUISE’S HOME 3 TIMES OVER A 7-YEAR PERIOD. THAT’S A PRETTY GOOD INDICATOR. CRUZ GOT INTO TROUBLE AT SCHOOL. HE THREATENED STUDENTS. HE WASN’T ALLOWED TO CARRY A BACKPACK AT THE SCHOOL. AND HE WAS EVENTUALLY EXPELLED FROM THE SCHOOL. THE MIAMI HERALD REPORTS THAT SCHOOL OFFICIALS ACTUALLY SENT OUT AN EMAIL WARNING TEACHERS ABOUT NIKOLAS CRUZ. AND THEN E OF COURSE, HAVE YOU HIS SOCIAL MEDIA FOOTPRINT. HAD YOU PICTURES WITH GUNS AND KNIVES AND DISTURBING PHOTOS. THEN OF COURSE THE FBI THEY WERE CALLED AND WARNED THEY DID NOT FOLLOW UP. IN OTHER WORDS, EVERY BIT OF EVIDENCE TO INDICATE THAT THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN WAS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF US.

PEOPLE SAW SOMETHING, SAID SOMETHING, AND NOTHING HAPPENED LEARNING TWO MORE PIECES OF INFORMATION TONIGHT. SECURITY CAMERAS WERE ON A NEARLY HALF HOUR DELAY WHICH SLOWED DOWN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THEIR ABILITY TO CAPTURE NIKOLAS CRUZ BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF SAYING THE ARMED SECURITY OFFICER ON CAMPUS DIDN’T ENTER THE BUILDING WHEN THE SHOOTING WAS TAKING PLACE. INSTEAD THE OFFICER TOOK A DEFENSIVE POSITION OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL. THIS IS WHY WE NEED SOLUTIONS. WE NEEDEDIES. WE NEED TO FIX THE PROBLEM. WE NEED TO PROTECT OUR KIDS. HERE’S THE THING. WE ALREADY KNOW WHAT WORKS. AND THERE ARE THINGS THAT WE USE EVERY DAY IN OFFICE BUILDINGS AND AIRPORTS AND COURTHOUSES AND OTHER GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS AND OTHER FACILITIES.

THE KEY IF YOU WANT TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM IS SECURITY AND IT’S NOT REALLY THAT HARD THREAT ASSESSMENT CAN BE DONE BY RETIRED OR FORMER POLICE OR RETIRED FORMER MILITARY, SPECIAL OPS, THESE SCHOOLS ARE SOFT TARGETS [APPLAUSE] >> WE NEED TO HARDEN THE PERIMETERS AROUND THESE SCHOOLS. AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE COST, REALLY? ARE WE GOING TO BE CHEAP WHEN IT COMES TO DEFENDING OUR KIDS? I ALSO GUARANTEE YOU THESE FORMER OFFICERS AND VETERANS, THEY WOULD LINE UP AND VOLUNTEER TO HELP THEIR COMMUNITY TO KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE.

[APPLAUSE] THESE NEED TO INCLUDE WAYS TO SECURE THE PERIMETER AND EVERY POINT OF ENTRY. FROM THERE, IF THESE EXPERTS DETERMINE THAT IT’S NEEDED, YOU ARE NEED TO PUT AN ID SYSTEM IN PLACE. ZERO EXCEPTIONS. THEY NEED TO KNOW EVERYBODY THAT GOES INTO THAT SCHOOL. I WORK IN TWO OFFICE BUILDINGS IN NEW YORK. ONE FOR RADIO, ONE FOR TV. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A WORK I.D. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED ENTRY. VISITORS ARE VETTED THROUGH A SECURITY SYSTEM. AND YOU MUST SHOW YOUR I.D. AND THEN YOU USUALLY CHECKED IN CASE YOU HAVE ANY METAL OBJECTS GOING. IN AND FROM THERE ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS IF SCHOOLS NEED IT THEY SHOULD HAVE METAL DETECTORS AND OTHER SECURITY MEASURES.

FINALLY YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN ARMED SECURITY PRESENT AT EVERY SCHOOL IN AMERICA [APPLAUSE] >> AND YOU CAN HIRE RETIRED VETERANS AND POLICE OFFICERS. SCHOOLS CAN NO LONGER BE SOFT TARGETS. YOU HAVE TO HAVE PEOPLE THERE WHO CAN FIGHT BACK AND CHALLENGE AND CONFRONT ANY POTENTIAL THREAT. AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE STATISTIC BROUGHT UP AT THE WHITE HOUSE LISTENING SESSION YESTERDAY, THE AVERAGE SCHOOL SHOOTING LASTS ONLY THREE MINUTES. IT TAKES POLICE ON AVERAGE 6 TO 8 MINUTES TO RESPOND, WHICH, BY THE WAY IS INCREDIBLY FAST. WHY NOT ALREADY HAVE SOMEBODY ON THE SCENE THAT IS ARMED, THAT IS TRAINED AND READY TO RESPOND AND SAVE LIVES AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE? [APPLAUSE] WE TAKE SECURITY THREATS AGAINST.

LOOK AT OSCARS PREMADONNA CELEBRITIES. WHY WOULDN’T WE DO THE SAME THING FOR OUR CHILDREN? AND, IN ADDITION, TO ALL OF THAT, WE ALSO NEED A MUCH BETTER WAY TO HELP THESE KIDS OBVIOUSLY IN TROUBLE. THERE HAS TO BE A SYSTEM PUT IN PLACE TO SPOT KIDS THAT WE THINK ARE DISTURBED. WE NEED TO HELP THEM, GET THEM THE HELP THAT THEY NEED.

AND WE HAVE TO PUT A FOCUS ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHETHER IT’S SOMEONE PHYSICALLY MONITORING IT OR EASIER, SOMEBODY REPORTS WHAT’S GOING ON NUT CASE OF THIS DICK KID NIKOLAS CRUZ. NOW, ALSO ON THIS STAGE EARLIER TODAY, THE NRA CEO EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT WAYNE LAPIERRE. HE WAS HERE AT CPAC. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] >> HE DELIVERED A FIERY RESPONSE TO LIBERALS IN THE MEDIA THAT ARE TRYING TO BLAME HIS ORGANIZATION FOR WHAT HAPPENED IN FLORIDA.

LAPIERRE ALSO CHALLENGED THEM TO DO MORE TO PROTECT SCHOOLS AND TO PROTECT OUR KIDS. HERE’S WHAT HE SAID. >> CHRIS MURPHY, NANCY PELOSI, AND MORE, CHEERED ON BY THE NATIONAL MEDIA, EAGER TO BLAME THE NRA AND CALL FOR EVEN MORE GOVERNMENT CONTROL. THEY HATE THE NRA. THEY HATE THE SECOND AMENDMENT. THEY HATE INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM. IN THE RUSH OF CALLS FOR MORE GOVERNMENT, THEY HAVE ALSO REVEALED THEIR TRUESELVES. THE ELITES DON’T CARE NOT ONE WIT ABOUT AMERICA’S SCHOOL SYSTEM AND SCHOOL CHILDREN. IT’S A BIZARRE FACT THAT IN THIS COUNTRY OUR JEWELRY STORES, ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR CHILDREN.

OUR BANKS, OUR AIRPORTS, OUR NBA GAMES, OUR NFL GAMES, OUR OFFICE BUILDINGS, OUR MOVIE STARS, OUR POLITICIANS, THEY ARE AWFUL MORE PROTECTED THAN OUR CHILDREN AT SCHOOL. DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE TO ANYBODY? >> Sean: NOW WAYNE LAPIERRE, RIGHT? GOOD POINTS. HE ALSO POINTED OUT HOW THE NRA HAS LED THE EFFORT TO KEEP THE GUNS OUT OF HANDS OF CRIMINALS AND FROM PEOPLE THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE THESE WEAPONS. OF COURSE, IF YOU ARE WATCHING THE CORRUPT MEDIA IN THIS COUNTRY LISTENING TO TO DEMOCRATS IN WASHINGTON. THEY WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT BECAUSE WE ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN DEMONIZING THE SECOND AMENDMENT SUPPORTERS IT’S ALL PREDICTABLE AND PATHETIC. FOR EXAMPLE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT WHAT WHAT HAPPENED DURING CNN’S FAKE NEWS TOWN HALL LAST NIGHT. FAX DIFFERING OPINION DIDN’T MATTER. CNN STACKED THE DECK AGAINST SECOND AMENDMENT SUPPORTERS. JUST TAKE A LOOK DANA LOESCH WILL JOIN US IN A MINUTE AT HOW SHE WAS TREATED LAST NIGHT. >> LET ME ANSWER THE QUESTION. CAN YOU SHOUT ME DOWN WHEN I’M FINISHED BUT LET ME ANSWER EMMA’S QUESTION. THEY SPOKE BEFORE B.

THAT BEFORE THE PRESIDENT MADE A MOVE AND THEY SPOKE ABOUT THAT BEFORE ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS’ MADE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TOO. THAT ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION TO THAT. >> AND I UNDERSTAND YOU ARE STANDS UP FOR THE NRA AND I UNDERSTAND THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. JEW U.S. TOLD THIS GIEWP PEOPLE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE STANDING UP FOR THEM. YOU ARE NOT STANDING UP FOR THEM UNTIL YOU SAY I WANT LESS WEAPONS. >> WE HAD THREE LAWMAKERS ON THIS STAGE AND ONLY ONE OF THEM HINTED AT REINFORCING THE BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM. IT IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE RECORD SUBMIT YOU HAD TO IT ONLY ONE OF THEM EVEN GOT ANYWHERE CLOSE TO MENTIONING THAT. WE HAVE TO HAVE MORE THAN 38 STATES SUBMIT RECORDS. THAT’S NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO. [YOU’RE A MURDERER. >> WE HAVE TO DEVELOP BETTER PROTOCOL TO FOLLOW UP ON RED FLAGS. >> Sean: DANA WILL BE HERE IN A SECOND. YOU HEARD PEOPLE SAYING BURN HER. THINK ABOUT THAT. HOW CAN ANYBODY HAVE A SERIOUS CONVERSATION WHEN ONE SIDE IS CALLING THE OTHER SIDE MURDERERS AND SCREAMING THAT THEY NEED TO BE BURNED.

235EUBG MUST, CNN, THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN SOLUTIONS. THIS WAS ALL ABOUT POLITICAL THEATER. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IT DID NOTHING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. FAKE NEWS CNN ALSO HAS ANOTHER SERIOUS PROBLEM ON THEIR HANDLED. A STONEMAN DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT. HE ACTUALLY SAVED LIVES DURING THE SHOOTING. AND IS HE REPORTING THAT CNN ACTUALLY TRIED TO SCRIPT HIS QUESTIONS AT LAST NIGHT’S TOWN HALL THAT HE DIDN’T END UP PARTICIPATING IN BECAUSE HE WASN’T GOING TO BE A PART OF THAT FARCE. HERE IS WHAT THAT STUDENT TOLD OUR OWN TUCKER CARLSON EARLIER TONIGHT. >> Tucker: I WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THIS STRAIT SO YOU SENT THEM A LONG IN EFFECT ESSAY ON WHAT YOU THOUGHT BUT THEY PUT THEIR OWN WORDS IN THE QUESTION AND THEY WEREN’T THE NAMES YOU HAD SENT IN. THEY WERE THE PRODUCER’S WORDS? >> ABSOLUTELY. THEY HAD TAKEN WHAT I HAD WROTE AND WHAT HI BRIEFED ON AND TAWNGSD ABOUT, THEY ACTUALLY WROTE THE QUESTION FOR ME. >> Tucker: BUT NOT WITH YOUR WORDS. EVEN THOUGH THEY ASKED TO YOU SEND QUESTIONS. >> ABSOLUTELY.

>> Tucker: THAT SEEMS DISHONEST. >> IT DEFINITELY DID. AND THAT’S KIND OF WHY I DIDN’T GO LAST NIGHT. ORIGINALLY I HAD THOUGHT THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE MORE OF MY OWN QUESTION AND MY OWN SAY AND THEN IT TURNED OUT TO BE MORE OF JUST THE SCRIPT. AND SHE HAD ACTUALLY SAID THAT OVER THE PHONE THAT I NEEDED TO STICK WITH THE SCRIPT. >> Sean: SO THE STUDENTS SAYING. [CROWD BOOING] FAKE NEWS SCRIPTED HIS QUESTIONS. AND WHAT DID YOU THEM? >> FAKE NEWS. >> Sean: OH E OKAY. THEY ARE SAYING THEY WOULD NEVER PROVIDE SCRIPTED QUESTIONS AND COLTON’S FATHER WITHDREW HIS NAME FROM PARTICIPATING BEFORE THE SHOW BEGAN.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT THE FAKE NEWS NETWORK HAS BEEN ACCUSE OF SCRIPTING QUESTIONS. MICHELLE MALKIN PUT OUT A GREAT ARTICLE IN 2016 FOR “THE NEW YORK POST.” CNN’S LONG HISTORY OF ALLOWING DEMOCRATIC TOWN HALL PLANTS AND HERE ARE JUST A COUPLE OF THE MANY EXAMPLES SHE FOUND. 2007, CNN YOUTUBE DEBATE. QUOTE UNDECIDE YOU HAD VOTERS LITERALLY INCLUDED A MEMBER OF THE LBGT AMERICANS FOR HILLARY CLINTON STEERING COMMITTEE. JOHN EDWARDS SUPPORTER THAT ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ABORTION.

LOG CABIN REPUBLICAN THAT WAS REALLY BACKING BARACK OBAMA. A CONCERNED MOTHER THAT WAS A UNION ACTIVIST FOR UNITED STEEL WORKERS THAT IT ENDORSED JOHN EDWARDS AND FORMER INTERNAL FOR DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSWOMAN JANE HARMAN. WE KNOW THAT THE FORMER DNC CHAIR DONNA BRAZILE LEAKED TOWN HALL QUESTIONS TO THE.
