Mark Mattioli, whose 6-year-old-son James was killed last year during the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, said politics should not interfere with finding solutions to making America’s schools safer.
Speaking at the National Press Club on Tuesday where a report was released recommending strategies for improving school safety nationwide, including armed security personnel, Mattioli said “politics need to sort of be set aside” to find “real solutions.”
“This is a comprehensive program,” Mattioli said, in reference to the report, The National School Shield: Report of the National School shield Task Force. (National School Shield Report.pdf) “I applaud everyone for their input.”
