how bout employing all the dif equipment to keep the shooter from coming into the room in the first place?
I swear everyone is acting like theres just no solutions but these are just 4 of many and they cost from 15-bucks to 120 bucks, youre telling me these cant be implemented along with an alarm system over the P.A that tells everyone to lock down?
