Governor Cuomo is getting less than positive reviews for his legislation announced on Tuesday that would give teachers and school administrators the ability to “red flag” students who may have the potential for violence.
Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler says the plan has sent up its own red flags.
Auburn Schools Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo appreciates the Governor’s intentions, but has some misgivings.
Pirozzolo adds going to the police would bring a resolution to a potential crisis faster than waiting for a judge to render a decision to order the seizure of firearms.
Cuomo says the measure is the first in the nation giving teachers and school administrations a means to go to court, raising questions about the plan being a political move to appease gun control advocates in an election year.
