LET'S DO SOMETHING ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE

HOW TO PREVENT SCHOOL SHOOTINGS AND PROTECT OUR CHILDREN

THE FERRARO PLAN

If we can protect our children from even one school shooting, all the work will be worth it.

Over the last several decades, the number of school shootings has risen dramatically. From the school shooting at Columbine High School to the school shooting at Virginia Tech to more recent school shootings in Parkland, too many of our children are dying at the hands of a school shooter. It is just a matter of time before the next shooter decides to act and kill the children in a neighborhood school, before many more mothers and fathers are mourning the loss of their precious children.  We should not have to turn on our televisions again to see more children’s lives cut short. We can take action to prevent this senseless violence.

The Ferraro Plan was created to prevent school shootings. With the Ferraro Plan, we can stop a school shooter before he or she is able to kill more of our children. When you look around, you will find that the children are not protected and are at risks by the simple fact that anyone with a criminal intent can access the schools and harm our children. Let’s do something about it.

THE FERRARO PLAN IS A PLAN THAT CAN PREVENT SCHOOL SHOOTINGS

The Ferraro Plan is designed to prevent school shootings. Using a three-step system, the Ferraro Plan can help schools put safeguards in place to stop the first school shooting from ever happening. Similarly, the Ferraro Plan offers options for making sure that teachers, administrators, and students all know what to do to protect themselves. With the Ferraro Plan, schools will know exactly what to do when faced with a school shooter.

The school shooting statistics are grim. Hundreds of children are dying every year at the hands of school shooters. However, these terrible occurrences are preventable. If schools and community organizations put safeguards in place, they will be able to keep their students safe and stop the violence before it happens. We can’t let another day go by where our children are at risk of dying because of a school shooting. It’s time to stop the violence. It’s time to take action. It’s time to put a plan in place.

PREVENTING A SHOOTER FROM ENTERING THE SCHOOL

The first thing that needs to be done to prevent school shootings is to implement a fool proof system that will have all the safe guards in it to prevent anyone with a gun from ever entering the school. This can be accomplished by implementing special metal detector enclosures systems, locked doors and armed security guards.

IMPROVING & ENHANCING SAFETY FEATURES IN THE SCHOOL

All first-floor outside classrooms windows where students can be seen from the outside must be replaced with bullet proof glass. Remotely activated electronic deadbolt systems can and bulletproof glass on all doors. in addition, having surveillance systems recording and trained armed security guards at all times.

PREVENTING A SHOOTER FROM ENTERING THE SCHOOL GROUNDS

The outside of the school is equally important as it relates to identifying a suspected shooter trying to enter the school grounds with a gun. Remember, the shooter is on the school grounds before he tries to enter the school and if we can spot him on the ground we can do something about it.
