I’m not saying I think it’s a good idea and certainly not the best we should have available to us.

But at this point, if I were a parent (full disclosure, I’m not), I’d rather my children have this option than to not have it.

It’s a fucking dystopian nightmare, but I’m sure if you ask any parent of a child who has been a victim of a school shooting if they’d have wanted their kids to be able to hide in something like this, I’m pretty sure I’d know what their answer would be.

Not fool proof. Maybe even a grift. But better than nothing - which seems to be the only other choice I see with my (honestly defeatist) attitude on this issue.

Honestly, at this point, I’m happy for any solution to this problem. I’d be a lot happier if I knew kids had this option.

Having said that, the biggest problem I see with this, is that it’s great for kids in the 2nd classroom, but isn’t going to do a whole lot for the kids in the 1st classroom.

We’re still willing sacrificing those kids lives.
