"My sense is that Congress is not going to move forward with their own bill, no way, no how," Daniel Domenech, executive director of the American Association of School Administrators, told The Washington Times on Monday. "There's no indication the two parties are going to come together."
"Administrators want to send out a message that at times like this, with everybody on high alert, talking about a gun, bringing in a toy gun, anything along those lines is just not the right thing to do right now," he said. "The rule of thumb for a school administrator is, first and foremost, the safety of the students. If you're wrong [about a gun threat], then you're wrong. But if you don't act, you can't go back later and change that."
