Billions Have Been Spent on School Safety. But Is It Working?

This is just sickening. Classroom tourniquets???
Instead of doing the right thing. Banning assault weapons. We spend billions to turn classrooms into a scene from a battlefield??
Now schools can buy 300-pound ballistic whiteboards ($2,900 each); classroom-specific tourniquets; facial-recognition software; high-tech, armored classroom doors (at $4,000 each); guns that fire balls packed with pepper mixtures (which are most commonly used by U.S. troops in combat zones); and even an elaborate door-security and weapons-detection system, which includes a 2,500 pound aluminum-framed vestibule (all for $500,000 per system).
