Conservative Governor Unveils School Shooting Plan

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Wednesday unveiled his plan to reduce gun violence in schools in the wake of a mass shooting at a high school in his state.

The “School and Firearm Safety Action Plan” contains 40 proposals and recommendations, including more law enforcement at schools, mental health evaluations for students at risk of harming others and improvements to campus security programs.

“This plan is a starting point, not an ending place,” Abbott said in a statement. “It provides strategies that can be used before the next school year begins to keep our students safe when they return to school. This plan will make our schools safer and our communities safer.”

His plan calls for more school marshals and for active shooter and emergency response training.
