Wouldn't it be better to have double front school doors, an inner and outer door, both doors with increased ELECTRONIC door security, with no doors you can smash the glass window with a rifle butt and climb into the school.

It might also be best when Police car drivers have to park up for a short break - they head for the school and park outside it, maybe they can do their form filling and paperwork in the school car parks, I'm suggesting just an increased Police presence is needed.

I know the Sherriff will pick the best proposals and hope my suggestions will be considered. One can only hope a copycat killer does not strike again.

Only if you're responsible and are trained on how to use a weapon/firearm.

I wouldn't consider your suggestion. Why you ask?
With so much going on in America, our society,with the pressures along stress of every day life... you never know who is going to break(mentally),for all we know it could easily be someone behind those double door your talking about.
Remember, life is not as happy-go- luck as yesterYear. Things change,people snap.

...The difference between Sheriff Joe and a Typical Progressive Liberal is that a TPL wouldn't lift a finger to help keep a student safe and Sheriff Joe actually cares...big difference!...Liberals all smoke'n mirrors and plenty of style...Sheriff Joe...Duty, Honor and Conviction with a ton of Substance !
