How do we keep our kids safe in school? There have been a number of good suggestions; but no solution guarantees complete security, especially when security measures already in place have failed our students.
In the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, a deputy assigned to the school failed to act. He could have engaged in a battle with the gunman long enough to prevent other students from being murdered until back up arrived. His duty was to protect those who could not protect themselves.
The FBI failed after they were informed twice of the gunman’s intentions. The police had multiple contacts with the gunman as well as Social Services, who knew of his mental condition. Yet, the gunman was able to legally purchase an assault weapon. This is not the fault of the N.R.A. as so many want to blame.
So what are the safe school solutions?
