By JAVIER MANJARRESBroward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who ran and won as a Democrat in the 2012 general election, is sticking to his guns- restating that he “absolutely” believes that schools need to have armed police officers. We caught up to Israel during the first of many “gun-buy-back” programs that his Sheriff’s office intends to conduct, in order to get guns off the streets.
Here is what the Shark Tank wrote earlier about Israel’s pro-NRA, anti-Obama position on gun control:

Newly elected Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, a former Republican turned Democrat whose 2012 candidacy was supported by Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz said that “all options needed to be on the table’” when dealing with the issue of school gun violence, including arming police officers already assigned to schools. Most, if not all Broward County schools are already armed or are assigning more throughout the school district.
“Mental health issues, gun registration, Baker Acting, having school resource officers armed, there are just so many different issues and I think everybody understands there’s no one solution to this problem.” – Broward Sheriff Scott Israel
