So how do we move towards making our schools safe?
I think we all recognize that with enough resources at their disposal an evil person will always be able to wreak havoc on society, but how do we stop the kind of nut that so recently killed so many in such a short time?
Here are some of my ideas, But I admit they are expensive;
bullet proof glass on all windows and doors, including interior fire doors.
doors sheathed with and locks made of armor grade steel.
once school is in session, ingress and egress thru a bomb proof room only, with the inner and outer doors on an interlock system. ( IF ONE IS OPEN, THE OTHER IS LOCKED) This room would be managed by an armed security guard in body armor. He or she buzzes you in, locks the outer door, orders "hands on the wall, spread your legs". once that is complied with, he enters the room and the door locks behind him. if it is determined that you are not a threat, you are permitted to enter.
In short, make them a fortress.-Paul
