A senior law enforcement analyst at CNN offered a stinging rebuke to President Trump’s recent calls to permit law-abiding teachers to “harden” school security; saying female staffers aren’t prepared to handle firearms because they wear “dresses or skirts.”
CNN’s Tom Fuentes was weighing-in on the nations’ response to the devastating school shooting in south Florida earlier this month when he made the bizarre policy recommendation; claiming women would have a hard time carrying a gun because of their clothing choices.
“One of the things that people don’t talk about… a lot of these schools like Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty. From principal to teachers, and for a woman where are you going to hide that gun during the day?” asked Fuentes.
“You can’t put it your desk drawer, somebody might steal it or you can’t get to it. You’re not going to have it in a safe in the principal’s office, you can’t get to it,” he added. “If you wear a dress or skirt, are you going to have to wear a jacket every day with a belt and a holster the way a detective on-duty would do?”
