Recently, U.S. Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) proposed spending federal dollars to make sure all public schools have panic buttons installed within each classroom. Though this measure has been endorsed by Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree and the Richmond County school system, it is at best only a first start.
The way to stop an armed intruder inside a school is through the use of lethal force. The bottom line is that bullets stop violent criminals, not buttons. In other words, wolves have never been stopped by cowbells – only a rancher with a gun.
