But 20 years later, parents are increasingly questioning elements of the practice, including whether the drills traumatize kids. April ...

Why We Continue to Have School Murders

Students are brought out of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after a shooting at the school U.S.A. (Ammoland.com)- Why have there been any more school murders in the USA since the attack at Columbine High School two decades ago?

Protecting Our Students in the Classroom, Defense Training Motivated By Love

  Sandy Hook: Never Again U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- I sat in on a training course for school teachers. I watched their faces in class. They were focused on the instructor in front of them.

His emotions were barely contained. What made this man so animated and so angry? This was a training class where school staff learn to be arm...

This disparity is often referred to as the ...

"It worries me that even now, kids who were not even born during Columbine High School are still making reference to Columbine."
