I know it’s Wordless Wednesday, but I’m going to say a few words. In the past 5+ years, I’ve heard many proponents of classroom barricade devices suggest that an assailant might shoot the lock off – therefore, schools should purchase a security device to barricade the door if a school shooter enters the building. In reality, shooting a lock off is not as easy at it might seem and there are many concerns surrounding barricade devices (you can read about them here).
The lock in this photo sent by John Dudley of Allegion was installed on a retail store. YES, those are bullet holes, and NO, the wanna-be robbers did not defeat the lock and/or gain access. #stopemwithaSCHLAGE
