Not so long ago, children were playing with homemade guns, swords and all kinds of other weapons. We were shooting our friends and were trying not to be killed by them. However in recent years this has changed drastically. Mass shootings in schools have transformed our relationship with guns and weapons to the point where schools are being outfitted with metal detectors and teachers are allowed to carry guns in class, because any child could be the next mass murder. The title “Tools To Secure School Safety And Security” is derived from the typical language used by the American Homeland Security department and tries to illustrate in a light hearted way how the innocence of fun, home-made weapons has been taken from us. The series gives simple instructions how we can now secure our own school safety and security with typical school and office objects.
