Most threats are internal; bulletproof glass and cameras won’t protect students from a student who walked in with them that morning. Case in point: on January 14, a six-year-old boy carried a loaded gun at school for at least three hours. The boy, a first grader, had mistaken the gun for a toy weapon. As Newman observes, “The only real hope for preventing rampage shootings is to increase the likelihood that kids who are witness to these hints of [possible violence] are able to come forward and tell someone.”
