Fox News aired a series of proposals to prevent mass shootings Tuesday night, hours after a gunman killed at least 19 elementary school children and two adults in Texas. These ideas included creating tax breaks for retired military and law enforcement personnel to patrol school grounds, installing “human traps” and purchasing “ballistic blankets” for students.
“Instead of parents buying their kids all these tools, toys, and games, they’re investing in the classroom to make it safer,” says Maureen O’Connell, a former FBI agent. suggested to Bret Baier. Businesses can do “threat assessments” of vulnerable areas, she said, “and they have ceilings that you can hang on the wall that are colorful and beautiful — but they’re ballistic ceilings.”
Similar comments were made on Hanny, where the eponymous host first whined about President Joe Biden choosing to “politicize” the tragedy when he called on gun-industry-backed Republicans to act. Sean Hannity then reached out to Dan Bongino and said he’s advocated protecting students “for years.”
“People — retired military, retired law enforcement — outside of every school in the country, they can donate their time, we can offer them tax breaks, no state income tax, no federal income tax, 10 hours a week and we can do any school in America cover,” said Hannity. “People around, people in the hallways, first responders there — we don’t have to worry about police response times.”
“However, I don’t know of any other way to protect children,” the Fox host added. “And by the way, it would be a lot less than what we are giving to Ukraine.”
Bongino mostly agreed, also praising the “great” idea of the “man trap.” bring forth earlier on the show by former NYPD detective Pat Brosnan — the same Fox guest who made a bizarre connection between vaccinations and shootings after a gunman killed nine in San Jose, California last year.
The trap is “a set of interlocking doors at the school entrance, triggered by a tripwire, [which] could be a gunshot, broken glass, or a manual switch flipped by a school employee,” Brosnan explained. “And it catches the shooter like a rat.”
“It’s not about work, it’s not about gun control. Sorry to say that,” he added.
