By: Mike McDaniel. This is the second in the series of articles on school shootings and how to deal with them. The first is available here. Note that I do not presume to absolutely prevent them; that’s plainly impossible for reasons I’ll explain in the near future. However, effective deterrence is a reality, and once a school attack begins, attackers can be stopped dead, even before they can harm anyone.
This updated article focuses on the realities of the threat we face, not only from domestic killers, adults and juvenile, but Islamist terrorists who have decades of experience at attacking schools around the world.
