Snyder Skips Guns In School Safety Plans

Apr 16, 2018

Governor Rick Snyder rolled out a plan Monday to improve school safety following the Parkland-Florida shootings.

The plan calls for boosting security at hundreds of schools, and expanding an anti-bullying tipline. A task force would also come up with more ways to improve school safety between now and the end of the year, when Governor Snyder steps down.

Governor Snyder says he thinks these are plans most people will agree on. The governor says he intentionally stayed away from the debate over firearms.

“I don’t want to take the issue of guns too early in this process because it could take away from all the good things we can do.”

Snyder has expressed interest, though, in allowing authorities to temporarily seize firearms of people deemed a danger.
