School Security doesn't have to be Costly: The need to shore up school entryways will still cost a lot, thanks to gun drooling juvenile adults that never advanced past their reckless teen years. These are the same rugged individualists complaining about wasteful spending and high taxes. Irresponsible gun laws are now forcing taxpayers to spend more money on schools that have nothing to do with learning.
While high school students advocate passing common sense gun laws that PREVENT school shootings, one student from the dairy state came up with a device we can use in the meantime.
"JustinKase" door jam: A better way to go, for just $95, protects interior classroom doors, and was invented by a Wisconsin Somerset high school student. His district is snapping them up because they work:
According to a WCCO-TV report, Somerset, Wisconsin, High School Justin Rivard invented a tool called the "JustinKase" that is designed to stop intruders from entering a classroom. More information on the device can be found here.
Gun Shot Detector: An additional option for high schools was developed by a Wisconsin woman in Baraboo, that detects gun shot anywhere in the building:
WISC: Stacy Jax will forever remember Dec. 14, 2012, the day a gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and within minutes, killed 20 children and six adults. “My daughter was in kindergarten at the time and I am a previous teacher,” Jax said. “So putting myself exactly in that classroom was very disturbing.”
Several people in the building heard gunshots, but did not immediately recognize them. She came up with Trinity Gunshot Alarm System, a sensor inside a school that could listen for the sound of a gunshot and then set off an alarm similar to a fire alarm. The sensor picked up the gunshots almost instantaneously, meaning in a real active shooter situation everyone would have seconds longer to react. Those seconds, Hodges said, could make all the difference. “It only takes seconds to fire a round, so if you think every time a gun goes off, that’s another victim, every second does count,” he said.
