super_grass: This is the dumbest and most absurd thing ever.How would knowing when a school shooting happens stop one?
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Assuming they're willing to take as much firearms training as a cop and go through yearly requals, sure.
whatshisname: By the age of 18, I'm guessing the average American has heard about a million gunshots on TV and video games. Are the sound effects all wrong?
PacManDreaming: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Yes, I know it sounds like firecrackersNot really. I can immediately tell you whether it was fireworks or gunshots. But, then again, unlike a lot of people, I grew up with exposure to both firearms and fireworks.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Next idea: set aside a desk in the main office and tell cops they're free to come in and use it to do their paperwork. Come in, have some coffee, chat up the secretary, and fill out all the reports you'd otherwise do while parked at the side of the road. Give them an Internet drop. Bam. You just got police presence in school and didn't have to spend a dime to do it.
