Police on Thursday fatally shot a man trying to forcefully enter an elementary school in Gadsen, Alabama.

The potential intruder went to several locked doors trying to get into Walnut Park Elementary School before police shot him dead, according to Gadsen City Schools Superintendent Tony Red****.

And Joe Biden is opposed to “hardening schools” in the aftermath of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

Republicans have pitched measures to beef up security at schools such as single point of entry, fencing, metal detectors and armed security.

Joe Biden and the Democrats are pushing back on the security proposals because their goal is to ban guns.

Responding police officers engaged the intruder before shooting him dead.

No children were harmed.

The identity of the intruder has not been released at the time of this publication.

AP reported:

A person who was trying to enter an Alabama elementary school where a summer program was being held was shot to death by a police officer Thursday morning, authorities said.

Etowah County Sheriff Jonathon Horton told The Gadsden Times that a police officer from nearby Rainbow City was working as a school resource officer and encountered the person, got involved in an altercation and called for backup, Horton said. At least one other officer responded and the person was shot to death.

No students were hurt, sheriff’s officials said. “All kids are out” of the building, Red**** said, and most didn’t even realize something had happened.

“We don’t know the potential of what could have happened had those two officers not responded the way they did, so we very much commend them for that,” Red**** said.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the identity of the person who was killed or any details about the altercation, including whether the person who died was armed or why they might have been trying to get into the school.

Liberals love all their gadgets and tape EVERYTHING in their lives. They have cameras in all their rooms, all around the outside of their homes, they get alerts when anyone comes near their property, they can even talk to the intruders/ people...but they refuse to allow schools to do the same things to protect schools and school grounds. How easy it would be to fence school perimetiers, install cameras that alerts when anyone comes close to the fenced in areas, and even have people patrolling. Libs make no sense, if your house is on fire, they think that means we should ban matches.

It is very vicious to tell the lie that Liberals don't care about kids, because they do.  I am a Liberal and I care about kids, and I support the recent Bill called "Protecting the Children Act".

IF you cared you would not support the slaughter of children in the womb and during their birth. IF you cared you wouldn't object to EASILY securing their schools. If you cared you wouldn't put foreigners ahead of their needs. If you cared you would not allow perversions to be taught and brought into our schools and then tell parents that object that their kids don't belong to them. If you cared you would not tell them that they should be ashamed of their color or genders. I don't know of one thing I have seen that shows liberals care about kids other than using them to push their agendas.
