I think a major failure in the reporting on many of these active shooter incidents is the emphasis on some bottom line body count.

We see 20 dead and 20 wounded until the next tragedy pops up, but gloss over the lifetime of PTSD and survivors guilt for the people that lived.

I’m sure the screams and shots were heard by children in the surrounding rooms and will likely haunt them for the rest of their lives.

You can fortify schools all you want, you have to get kids in and out of the building somehow. You also have to be able to safely evacuate in case of fire or other emergency.

Maybe schools would see better academic performance if kids weren’t spending time on active shooter drills and their fate wasn’t in the hands of a faulty door latch (surely not the fault of the screening process for obtaining weapons).

That's the idealized vision of it while this is closer to the reality:

Lots of private schools have well trained guards and functioning protocols - they will never have a shooter
But they have. It’s way less likely to happen in a private school but it has happened. There are far fewer private schools and they can reject behavioral “bad apples”.

This is just another thinly veiled push for school choice.

Don't get your panties in a knot. I'm just trying to figure out your reasoning.

So the door company must pay?

But not the gun company?
Doors are not walls. They're intended to allow passage. Guns are not feather dusters, they're intended to kill people
