It technically says no aerosols at all, not even Lysol, but I found someone's idea of using the fire extinguisher as a weapon. It is right across from my room and I could easily access it if a lockdown was called.

I think a small fire extinguisher is only about $20.

It's about 1/4 of a mile to a house in any direction once outside of the building because the parking lot on both sides is really big. I'm not quite sure what the windows are made of, I just know that they don't manually open.
in this case I am thinking not only should a crazy person with a gun enter the school but I'm wondering about how these kids would exit the buildings in case of fire in the building.

do schools not still perform these drills? or maybe I was just ahead of the curve
The only thing that my kids school does right now is a yearly state mandated tornado drill. I'm sure there will be more emergency type drills in the future.

Hey Winds
Good point. Many school classroom buildings are built with one major objective: Minimum cost. But when it comes to the football stadium, basketball building, swimming "natatorium", cost is not important. Just build them to outdo the other schools in the area. I'm an old geezer, but when I was in school, we had 3-story buildings plus basements. Each floor had a "fire chute", which was an enclosed spiral slide. We had fire drills once a month, but the fire chutes were also opened up daily at lunchtime and we all had a great time sliding down the chutes. However, we never had any "active shooter" drills, but then we never had any active shooters either. I'd worry now that such fire chutes would concentrate all the kids into a big tightly-packed group waiting to use the slide, which would be a terrible disaster in the case of a shooter.

We do fire drills once a month and severe weather drills (tornado etc) every few months. We only do lockdown drills once a year I believe.

That picture is worth 10 million words. The NRA is correct in their solution.
