Civil libertarians say Gilmore's new plan is a slightly better idea than his first call for school officials to report "suspiciously" acting students to police.
But he's also calling for tactical SWAT type training for school resource officers, and risk assessment training for custodians and cafeteria workers who could help spot trouble.
Also, he wants the state Emergency Operations Center in Richmond to have floor plans of every school buildling in Virginia.
That's just in case violence lasts long enough to require a paramilitary response, as was the nightmarish case in Colorado.
