hmmm, I read the words "teacher" and "12 ga" and I thought they were onto something...

...or a simple heavy duty sliding bolt lock mounted high

I really don't understand why something new had to be invented when a sliding bolt would accomplish the same thing, and even better. But of course, installing them on every classroom door can be a pain, and not to mention the cost of labor to install them.

What I like is that they're being proactive. A very simple solution to a complex problem? A start. A bolt wouldn't withstand 550 pounds.

These shootings have gone beyond ridiculous.

Any locking device is going to have to pass fire inspection. Let alone ADA.
That's the world we live in.

I'm glad to see that people are thinking about ways to protect the kids and this thing is better than nothing.

I would think the shooter would just start shooting at the window next to the door.

I would also be concerned that some of our "brighter" children would use the device to keep the teacher out of the room or barricade kids in the room etc...

Several businesses here are already using it. It slides on and off very easily.

Better something than nothing!

The frequent school shootings make me so sad and angry....it seems every time I turn on the news these days, this is happening. GRRRR! I agree that anything pro active is better than nothing.

What in the he!! is happening with our kids. It's just heartbreaking. :sad:

It just breaks my heart every time I hear of another shooting. Seems there's been one daily lately.

Something has to be done. I wish I had the perfect solution.
