Security experts weigh in on Abbott's plan

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced plans today to spend $120 million to make our schools safer.

The School and Firearm Safety Plan suggest some school-hardening strategies like reducing the number of entries and exits, adding active shooter alarm systems to schools and having more school marshals –  which are teachers who are licensed to carry firearms.

The plan also sets aside millions for mental health screenings and services to help identify students who may be a threat.
