"Sandy Hook's doors were reportedly secured, but the shooter still managed to somehow gain access. " Steel wrapped wood framed 45 minute fire rated security doors perhaps? AR-15= skeleton key. 20 minute fire rated standard steel wrapped door? 9 mm pistol = skeleton key. Non steel wrapped hollow core door? steel towed boot = skeleton key. Reinforced steel frame double-bolted 1 hr fire rated security door (2-300 pounds each for ADA requirements for wheelchair accommodating width) = prison camp with kids and perhaps small teachers unable to open the doors safely and easily under normal day to day conditions. And then there are windows and for a wood framed building even exterior walls that can be breached on either side of the prison door

Trying to explain an evil act like the one that killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., is on a par with explaining how the universe was formed.

The natural human reaction after extending sympathy and prayers for the victims and their families is to ask what actions might have been taken to prevent the massacre. More gun laws? Connecticut already has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. Those laws did not prevent a man with evil intent from carrying out his heinous act.
