Do Students Need Better Security?

Camron Thompson

On Tuesday, September, 26th 2017 a student brought a gun to Potomac High School. In order to protect students, the school went into lock-down. Students were left in this state for over an hour. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
There have been many situations similar to this. For example, there was an incident at Freeman High School in Spokane County, Washington where 4 students were shot. More security is needed in schools for the protection of students.
Students could have these things in order to feel safer: Metal detectors, limited room access, certified security guards, etc.
In the future, there should be a better and more convenient way to protect students at school.
