With all the recent school shootings around the country, teachers, schools, and police having been working on what steps need to be taken in the event another school shooting happens. Now some law makers have stepped in, trying to make schools safer with the help of something as small as, well, a door-stopper.
As fear increases with each school shooting, so does preparedness. The New York State government is trying to come up with another plan– door-stoppers.
Under current regulation, schools are not allowed to use them or other items to secure a door from the inside. A bill being pushed by Assemblyman Bob Oaks is trying to change that.
Gates Police Sgt. Robert Long said anything that can prevent a shooting is a good thing because buying time saves lives.
Nobody has the answer on how to stop a school shooting but a small idea can save a life.
