Mom Petitions Against Live-Shooter Drill at School

Mom Petitions Against Live-Shooter Drill at School

When it comes to preparing schools for the possibility of an armed intruder, parents have been largely supportive of safety drills. But a proposed drill at F.E. Burrelson Elementery in Tennessee may be taking things too far.

Dondi Johnson, whose daughter attends the elementary school, created a petition last week after hearing about the possibiltity of involving the students in drills with a fake gunman. The petition currently has over 700 signitures.
