Oakland Schools Push Back Against Trump’s Proposal To Arm Teachers


IN FLORIDA. THE PRESIDENT’S PLAN WOULD PROVIDE FOR “RIGOROUS” FIREARMS TRAINING FOR SOME TEACHERS. HE’S ALSO URGING CONGRESS TO PASS A BILL TO MAKE THE FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM MORE EFFECTIVE. KPIX 5’s PHIL MATIER IS HERE… WITH THE IMMEDIATE REACTION FROM ONE BAY AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT. (NAT SOUND FROM FLORIDA SHOOTING) (MATIER VO)OAKLAND SCHOOLS HAVE THEIR OWN POLICE FORCE AND IT’S CHIEF JEFF GODOWN DIDN’T WASTE WORDS ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PROPOSAL TO ARM TEACHERS. (SOT – OAKLAND UNIFIED SCHCOOL CHIEF JEFF GODOWN/ 18:35) I think it’s ridiculous. (18:45) That is just a knee jerk reaction to a subject matter he knows nothing about. (MATIER VO)CHIEF GODOWN ISNT’T MAKING A POLTICAL STATEMENT – HE’S TALKING ABOUT THE PRACTICAL ODDS OF A TEACHER – ARMED WITH A HAND GUN – FACING DOWN SOME ONE WITH MULTLIPLE SHOT ASSUALT WEAPON. (SOT GODOWN- 21:51) With the weaponry he had and the amount of rounds he had. (SOT- GODOWN/21:45) We would be hard pressed to stop that kid with the hand gun on my belt. (SOT – 20:05) MATIER – so there is no match for that. GODOWN- There is no match for that (SOT- CHIEF GODOWN /20:06) This predator knows that the first round he caps off – he’s probably go somewhere between five and ten minutes before the cavalry is coming. (MATIER VO)AND WHILE MANY CAN DIE IN THOSE MINUTES – GODOWN SAYS HAVING TEACHERS WITH GUNS WOULD actually make things MORE DANGEROUS. (SOT- GODOWN23:07) If the police show up and there is a civilian in there with a gun- how do we know it’s not the active shooter? (MATIER VO)AND THE TEACHERS DON’T WANT TO BE ARMED EITHER. (SOT- TRISH GORHAM/ PRESIDENT OAKLAND EDUCATION ASSOC./ 26:08) To have those children Know that there is a gun in the room? And wonder “where is it?” (25:53) We need to be talking about real safety at school sites not arming teachers. (MATIER VO) BUT CHIEF GODOWN SAYS IT’S NOT THAT EASY. (GODOWN/19:18) A lot of schools have metal detectors, security guards they have police officers – the school in Florida had that. (SOT/ GODOWN/19:30) The reality is when someone comes in with a rifle such as this kid had -you are are going to have a hard time stopping him. (TAG- TALKING ABOUT HOW GODOWN WILL START TRAINING TEACHER ON THE ” PHIL, YOU SAID THE CHIEF POINTS OUT.. THESE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, FOR WHATEVER REASON.. HAVEN’T THE CHIEF POINTS OUT..
