DALLAS, Texas -- It is becoming a world where locked school doors, intercom entry systems, electronic card entry keys, and security cameras just are not enough to ensure student safety. Horrific incidents like Columbine, the Isla Vista shooting, Sandy Hook, and the 2012 rampage of an under aged madman in Newtown, CT, that left 20 youngsters and six teachers dead, prompted some states to enact new laws that ensure stricter school safety. It also allowed school marshals and select teachers to conceal and carry weapons, armed with a whole new pinch of prevention for the upcoming school year.
