    Makes you wonder why they couldn't take 10 or 15 teachers through the same simulations with their own weapons. Give them a few months training first, then put them through these simulations with the police.

    Teachers would be alot better since they are already there when it starts. Damage will be mostly done by the time LEO arrive.

    Layered defenses are good, absolutely.

    Training involving the "victims," staff, with police/sheriff on responses; training of faculty/staff on being armed on campus; beefing up the facilities (hard to get in; very hard to move easily (unattended/unescorted) from one high-value area to another; beefing up / simplifying the procedures; etc.

    I like the idea. Of course I can see many school officials, and maybe even law enforcement, being afraid that this type of drill may be too "traumatizing" to the students. The way I see it, this would be much less traumatizing than being involved in an actual school shooting and not being prepared for it.

    Great idea! My wife is a teacher and having these sort of training exercises would make me feel better. My wife's principal is a veteran and a school security expert. He's made it known (without actually saying it) that if something ever went down at their school, that he's packing, and probably packing pretty heavy!
