The latest mass shooting occurred at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where a gunman killed 18 students and three adults. Much like in the Sandy Hook and Parkland shootings, many are voicing their opinions about how the country can avoid these incidents.

During a segment on “The Five,” co-host Jeanine Pirro voiced support for “hardening the perimeter” of each school in the country and stationing security guards at them.

“I mean, these children are–they’re babies,” Pirro said, per Mediaite. “They really are babies.”

Pirro suggested that many retired law enforcement officers would be willing to contribute their time to supply security at schools across the United States. 

“I think that you’ve got a lot of people now – retired cops, retired sheriffs – who’d be more than happy to protect kids. I think right now – and I don’t want to get into the politics of it – but we’ve got to make sure that people understand, especially the schools and the teachers, that we need this,” Pirro said. 

“It is a crazy world today. It’s very different than it was five years ago. But we need to do something about it I think this is one of the only ways to actually protect the school and the children.”

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin left his regular assignment covering the crisis at the Southern Border to cover a mass school shooting that left at least 21 people dead in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday.  

Melugin spent hours appearing on the network’s primetime lineup reporting from the scene. The correspondent addressed rumors that the shooting at the school began as a border patrol chase. 

“We’re not hearing anything about a chase, there were rumors flying around that this was a sort of border patrol chase, I have not heard anything of the sort, I have not confirmed any of that information and have no reason to believe any of those rumors are credible at this moment,” he said. 

Melugin described what he saw at Robb Elementary School and the scene inside the school. 

” We went in, there is a room full of parents, a private room where they are waiting on information for their loved ones, some are walking the hallways, some are crying, hugging, emotional, some have been given horrible news,” Melugin said. “There is a room full of parents necessary there waiting on information.”
