One way to hopefully reduce school shootings
Lock the damn classroom doors. So no weirdo can get access. Of course, monitor the access points where kids come to school. A metal detector. I'm not in favor of arming teachers, since I don't know many teachers I'd trust with a gun, and training them with a gun is expensive and likely would not be necessary if someone was at the front door or locked the classroom doors in a reasonable time. When I was going to school, you had to be in class when the bell rang.
Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
It will I’ll take a conglomeration of steps and measures.
Attacking schools is is nothing new. The Bath Massacre happened almost 100 years ago, and shooting schools in Israel has been happening for as long as Israel has been Israel. It’s happening less now in the US than it was 20 years ago. It’s just now getting more attention from those that dance in the blood of the fallen, and want to use it as a tool to achieve the goal of disarming us.
Safety rules won’t allow you to lock the doors of an occupied classroom anyway. Can’t have the kids trapped in if there is a fire.
Bath was a number of firsts in this country...
The first mass school massacre
The first car bomb. (Previously the last VBIED was a wagon drawn by a team of mules)
The first suicide bomber
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
Even in the most recent shooting, the shooter left the room to arm himself, then came back.
All other doors are secured against entry (not exit) and alarmed with an audible door alarm and through the buildings alarm system.
If the classroom doors are to be locked, are they automatically locked on closing or manually locked at the beginning of class?
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German writer and politician
The cost of the special course, if there is any, would be born by the applicant, as well as the cost of the firearm, holster, and ammunition. There is no reason for the school district to pay for any of this, as the administrators, teachers and staff that believe in it will come up with the money. I know if I were a teacher and I was given the option of training and carrying, I would happily get out my checkbook and git 'er done.
