With the ability of the NRA to influence and lobby politicians I don't see that any sensible gun laws will come to pass anytime soon. I believe in and support _responsible_ gun ownership, and I fully support the 2nd Amendment, but I believe there is a need for red flag laws, there needs to be a waiting period or call it a cool down period if you prefer, and I think we might see bio-metrics used at some point to keep a stolen gun being used in a spree.
While I can understand to a point that money making venues are reticent to implement security measures as put forth in this book because they don't want to face customer frustration from delays while bags are checked, various security checks or other safety measures, possible loss of income or 'bad press' I can't help but think of the other scenario.
Not providing adequate security to prevent an 'incident' and allowing a mass loss of life surely can't be a better solution?
This book gave me a lot to think about and while at first glance it may appear to be written for professionals, I think private citizens will benefit from it as well. In order to know how well we are protected, what measures are being taken to ensure our most precious resource, our children, we need to know the information in this book, just as the professionals do.
This is a valuable reference for Offices of Security Planners at not only the 7 listed venues but many, many others. Police, Fire and Rescue Departments should be involved in planning security for these venues as well, because they are the ones who are called to clean up the mess when an 'incident' occurs due to lack of proper security steps taken by the venue in the first place.
I also think private citizens should begin taking responsibility for standing up and demanding that anyplace crowds gather, which more and more frequently are becoming targets of opportunity, need to begin demanding proper security from these venues and refusing to spend their time and money at places that don't value their lives, only their money.
I'd much rather arrive a bit earlier and live to see or partake in an activity that be carted out in a body bag. Wouldn't You? Humans are capable of adaptability. Airport waiting lines, if nothing else, have demonstrated that of us.
