Locks just keep the honest people honest
Safety comes in many shapes and sizes and is directly proportionate to an individual’s level of understanding. We are living in a world where the levels of violence increase daily and critical incidents spread through schools, churches, daycares, business locations, and even our own homes like fires through the forest. Still, many do not comprehend the inferior safeguards they have chosen to ease their minds and quell their fears.
According to the FBI, the United States has seen 333 Active Shooter incidents between 2000 – 2019 resulting in 2,851 casualties. Business locations and schools had the highest frequency of incidents. Typically, these two locations were thought of as safe spaces to visit and conduct our activities, after all, they have doors with locks on them to keep the bad guys out. Wrong.
The typical use and purpose of the standard door lock being utilized in most schools and business locations are to establish privacy or provide a first line of defense. I reflect back to my childhood and recall my father’s voice saying “Locks just keep the honest people honest”. Indeed. The typical door locks in place do nothing more than create a baseline for the law-abiding individuals to adhere to and are merely an inconvenience to a violent, focused attacker. Perhaps, this is why soft-target locations like businesses and schools serve as hosts for the vast quantity of casualties being witnessed with increased frequency. There is a need for a layered approach to safety.
