Safe and Sound School presenting in AA County

Copied from AA County email:
Michele Gay, whose daughter was among the 20 children killed in the tragic 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., will be the featured speaker at a town hall meeting on safe schools sponsored by Anne Arundel County Public Schools next week.

As an outgrowth of the Sandy Hook tragedy, Gay and Alissa Parker, whose child also died in the shooting, co-founded the group Safe and Sound Schools as a national resource for school safety. The former elementary school teacher travels across the country speaking to various groups and conducting school safety workshops and seminars.

A panel discussion that will include Superintendent George Arlotto, representatives of the County Executive’s Office and the county Police Department, and other school system personnel will follow Gay’s remarks.

The event will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, 2019, at Magothy River Middle School, located at 241 Peninsula Farm Road in Arnold.

It is free but seating is limited and those wishing to attend must register prior to the event here.

Note: No recording (audio or video) of any part of Gay’s presentation or remarks will be permitted.

Looking up their stance next, maybe a PP event?

Is this “Safe and Sound Schools” presentation on 5/16 just a gun control red herring intended to distract attention from this:

The so-called “Anne Arundel County Gun Violence Prevention Task Force” - - actually, a purely partisan, anti-gun owner political activity masquerading as a county government initiative - - is meeting that same night, at nearly the same time, in Annapolis:

Location:
Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St, Annapolis, MD 21401, Room 308.

The “Safe and Sound Schools” meeting described in the OP requires an online Eventbrite registration/seat reservation, whereas the “AA Task Force” appears to fall under the MD Open Meetings Act (OMA):

They're probably anti's, but their website doesn't appear to mention gun control.

Bumping this because there are TWO gun control events sponsored by Anne Arundel County at TWO different locations tonight: Thursday, May 16th.

It’s easy to get them confused; perhaps that is the intention.

Anyone available who wants to join up to witness the proceedings at the AA County Anti-Gun Owner Partisan Task Force meeting tonight in Annapolis (THU 5/16), Patriot Picket will be there.

That “Task Farce” is the subject of the OTHER thread, not this one; see this other thread instead for more info on where we’ll be tonight:

https://www.mdshooters.com/showthread.php?t=234306

Patriot Picket Founder Jeff Hulbert will be present at the Task Farce meeting.

We expect to observe the tearing out of purple hair, pearl-clutching, liberal tears, rending of Red Garments and the lamentations of their Red Women.

Dispatches from the Patriot Picket News Service provided for the our Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore Patriots to follow along.

If there is a public comment period it would be great to have some Patriot Raiders from the Soviet Socialist People’s Republics of Central Marylandistan in attendance there to make thoughtful, insightful, fact-supported comments to counter their baseless feelings, since we are not represented on the county government’s Democrat Task Force.

At this time there isn’t a sign picket planned, nor will we be wearing any WWNC gear - - just our regular PP shirts of any kind.

Will be good times! See you there!

Has any school in AA called the NRA safe schools program? I contacted my sons HS principal about it and he had never heard of it and said he would look into it. No idea if he ever did.

This is HoCo's active shooter response. Thankfully we've moved away from the old approach of JUST a lockdown and are now in the corporate "run, hide, fight" model that includes acting in defense. My school actually has active shooter training tomorrow on the half-day. I'm trying to convince my principal to let me play OP4

we also have an optional training through safeschools that teachers can actively seek out, but nobody probably knows about. It's relatively solid and presents things that should trigger antis pushing gun control by hyping school shooting events.
