InfluenceWatch Podcast #263: Protecting Our Children

This week, a spree shooter killed six people at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee; our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the others affected. Now, even as they have campaigned to take away gun rights in response to similar spree shootings, left-wing interest groups have pushed to remove school resource officers—cops who work directly with the school community—from public schools.

Joining me to discuss this anti-police campaign is CRC Senior Fellow Kali Fontanilla, a former teacher in California.
