My advise to all the schools ??? please get armed security. Don't count on gun control for security. More gun controls won't keep your schools safe..also bullet proof first floor windows and doors.. Sandy Hook shooter broke a window to get inside the school... Schools have way too many windows , too easy for anyone to get inside. What about preventing a car--truck from driving inside a school ? The cheapest way is to put rock boulders around the schools..Marines learn the hard way in Lebanon Beirut about cars driving inside a building with explosives. All the buildings in war zones are protect by cement blocks..All schools can be protected 99 % if my ideals are follow.. Former Marine who know a few things about security.
