Texas Politician Says Problem With Schools Like Santa Fe Is That There Are "Too Many Entrances"

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Dan Patrick, Texas lieutenant governor, thinks he may have cracked the problem of all these school massacres— too many gosh-darn doors. After another mass shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, Patrick took to the news camera and laid this goose egg out on the table:

We may have to look at the design of our schools moving forward and retrofitting schools that are already built. There are too many entrances and too many exits.

Someone might want to remind the lieutenant governor that high school isn't supposed to be a lockdown prison. 


The shooting that occurred at Santa Fe High School, about 35 miles southeast of Houston, killed ten people and injured ten more. In the aftermath, public officials gave "thoughts and prayers" while speaking at press conferences, saying things need to change. Of course, most of us realize, nothing ever does. 

Patrick took to the airwaves to give his take on the real issue, saying:

There are not enough people to put a guard in every entrance or exit. Maybe we need to look at limiting the entrances and exits into our schools so that we can have law enforcement looking at the people who are coming.
