After a mass shooting in an elementary school in Nashville left six people dead – out of which three were children – Conor McGregor has called for use of armed guards in United States’ schools.
The former two-division UFC champion noted that his children were protected by an armed guard while in the USA as well.
Here’s what McGregor had to say in a since-deleted tweet, also referencing the “Amber Alert” application which notifies people of potential child abductions in the area:
Just got an “Amber alert” to my phone while here in Orlando. A smart and quick set up that alerts everyone there is a child missing and with full description and detail also. Very smart.
I would like to see armed protection at each school also. I have had my children at school here while stateside and have had my own armed guard present at the school.
This was prior to the most recent school shooting also.
If she shot her way in to that school from the outside, my guard, who is tucked away, armed and unseen, would have seen her and taken her down. Saving those children’s lives.
May God and his best people on this earth protect our children!
