EXCLUSIVE: Gun Control Measures after Stoneman Douglas Shooting

By Nick Baum

SATURDAY – 4/14/18

For millions across the nation, the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School was seen as a wake up call for many, and as an annoying movement for many others. However, actions are being taken in schools and cities nationwide, as many try to stop a shooting with the likes of the previous one to take effect.

First, two different public school districts in Pennsylvania. First, the Blue Mountain School District, a rural school district in central Pennsylvania, decided to have a bucket of rocks in every classroom, as an effort to discourage shooters while not implementing guns. The Erie School District bought 600 miniature bats, one for every teacher in the district.

Also, many public schools have upgraded security since the shooting, in an effort to peacefully prevent the schools from another attack. The most controversial security measure since the shooting was Stoneman Douglas’s clear backpack initiative, which many called an infringement on their first amendment rights.
