PITTSBURGH —The elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., has created a heightened awareness for students and teachers across the country as they prepare to return to the classroom after the holidays, but a Westmoreland County man’s invention could help keep them safer We in law enforcement need to be speeded up as much as we can, and we need to be able to slow down the actor as much as we can so those two events cross paths,” said Penn Township Police Chief John Otto.

That’s where the JAMBLOCK comes in.

The lightweight piece of steel was invented by a Bob Ploskunak, who spent a combined 35 years as a teacher and a security director for the Woodland Hills School District.

“It saves time. It creates time for the police to respond,” said Ploskunak

dude....about a 9 on the uninformed scale.... You have to see the U.S. as diversified and spread way the crude out....you are thinking too "indoorsey"...there's a free and easy land out there waiting to be subdued so REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM....of he who acuses us, "the father of all lies" He will try to make you fall for anything, if you refuse to take a stand on something.

That's why.

When was the last time you saw muliple murders from someone entering the school for a fist fight?

Ofcourse, just banning guns wouldn't be an option...................just in case China invades?

Lets just invent other things and forget about the elephant in the room hey?

What about a door with lasers, or Teachers with lasers on their heads?

Paranoia.

Sorry everyone felt the need to derail your thread, op.

Gave you a s&f. I like the idea but they would need to make some that could fit under all doors. My classroom door nearly drags the floor.

I feel like it would be better to have an improved lock that could be in place at all times. By the time a lock down is announced, it may be too late to throw that lock under your door.

Your average dry wall aint much competition to a shot gun.

If someone wanted to shoot inside a classroom there is always the option of just shooting out a window, if on ground level? He/she is gonna then just fire at the pack of people trying to get out of your door.'

Duh

This is my favorite line on the article:

It's not the answer, but it gets us closer to the answer, and that's what we need to do,” said Ploskunak


My favorite because there is no "silver bullet".
Banning = FAIL
Controlling magazine size= FAIL
Restricting firearm ownership = FAIL
Making murder illegal = FAIL
etc...

The best way to secure anything is with a layered approach. The idea is not to completely stop the perpetrator/attacker, but to slow them down enough for the authorities to respond in time. Multiple layers of hurdles can accomplish that, if folks would get it out of their small brains that there is no single solution to this problem.

Banning anything only makes it more desirable and then puts the banned item on the black market making the bad-guys more $$ at a jacked up price. Where do you think that bad person will get that $$ from? Right, they will steal it from someone.

This approach is in the right direction IMO, and there should also be NO windows on entryway doors (pin-hole viewports maybe). In fact I would even say the pin-hole viewports should be redesigned to not by direct view but offset (so the invader simply does not shoot you in the eye through it!)

Ok, this stupid little argument is pushing my buttons.

Sure, you can keep your handguns for whatever protection you need (God knows what you need them for, but you need them. I guess it's like crack addicts in some respect) But BAN great big F* off automatic, a million bullets a second, should only be in the army's hands type machine guns. Who needs those? you don't need those for protection in America, you really don't????? Why would you need a machine gun, an AR-15 or whatever you wanna call it?? really, please give me one sensible explanation?

We have shotguns and handguns in Australia and my other native country England, but we don't have school shootings on the level you have??? AND even if we do have a shooting it does not involve MACHINE GUNS!!!!!!!!

CHRIST SAKE, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET IT INTO YOUR THICK HEADS. THE PUBLIC/WORLD DOES NOT NEED THESE TYPES OF WEAPONS!!!
IT'S SIMPLE, JUST AGREE WITH ME, SEE SENSE AND IT WILL ALL BE BETTER????!!!!!!!!

CHRIST, it's like hurding cats with you lot.

Argumentative to the bloody core.


Chill out dude....why don't you "blow the froth off a few" and relax. This thread is NOT about banning or gun control. You wanna talk about that, please create your own rant thread. Then, in that thread, folks can educate you that an AR-15 is not a machine gun, nor is is an automatic weapon. Education is a good thing, you should try it sometime.

Sorry OP, trying to keep the discussion on-track, regarding alternative approaches to securing a structure from an intruder.

May I refer you to my earlier reply, Reference: Windows?


Hey, let's even stop with schools all together. Why don't we do what we do over here in remote locations and have schooling on the internet? then there would be no schools to shoot up?

What a great idea!

No schools!


See, I've solved it
