SANTA FE – Gov. Susana Martinez, in comments this week during a meeting with President Donald Trump and other governors, suggested retired New Mexico law enforcement officers should be put to work making schools safer.
The two-term Republican governor, a former prosecutor who has in the past touted her concealed carry firearm permit, said such an approach would require little training and could lead to fewer school shootings.
“I do see that there is a huge pool of retired law enforcement officers where municipalities and counties have actually invested a lot of money into training them, and now they’re retired,” Martinez said Monday at the White House, where governors were meeting with Trump.
