    While I might be thinking of the worst situation (school shooting is up there), you have to think about everything that COULD go wrong. And asking someone (not just teachers) to be ready to take that sort of role and responsibility is just too much IMO if they aren’t police/military/national guard/etc.

    Do we know how this guy got into the school? My wife and I drove around this town 2 years ago as I was showing her my old house and schools I went to, etc. we noticed every school had 8 ft fences all around. It surprised me because 30 years ago it was one of the safest towns (much much smaller back then).

    So Cruz called 911 before the shooting. The family he stayed with called 911 before the shooting. A friend of Cruz’s parents called 911 concerned with his behavior saying he has put a gun to his brother’s and mother’s head in the past.

    This is why there needs to be some course of action in place for "see something, say something" b/c it's useless without it.

    You could also try locking the door in that scenario. Just saying.

    I don't think it is as hard to reinforce a door to resist bullets and forced entry as you think.

    That is standard active shooter drill procedure. Shooter can still shoot thru the window of the door
    You think or you know? I honestly don't know how the standard classroom door holds up to forced entry or bullets, or what would need to be done to reinforce them.

    I’ve seen that before. I e also seen them take a belt off and wrap it around the spring back actuator arm so the door can’t be opened. Those ideas are better than nothing but that dude pulled a fire alarm and had people running everywhere.

    I suppose the sturdiness of school doors varies from by location. I went to a high school that was built post-Columbine and had sturdy looking hollow metal doors. Even going a step below what they do in video and reinforcing existing doors with longer screws and larger plates can make it nearly impossible for an individual to break down without special tools.

    As funny as that is I’ve wondered if the rating system needs to be expanded. I’m amazed sometimes what passes for PG-13 sometimes and wonder if maybe you add one rating between it and R.

    And in the Florida shooting, the guy pulled the fire alarm so it's not like people would be locking themselves in a room.

    They ran back into classrooms once shots were heard though.

    This is more what I'm worried about. I feel like there could be a way for a teacher to have a locked gun in their room without students ever knowing about it. And if the teacher brought it out when they aren't in a code red then the teacher should be fired.
