Some ideas for school safety that have come out of this incident include, gun control laws, mental health screenings, and things that can be done in schools to control the situation of having an active shooter. One method of deterring an active shooter was stated as arming select teachers within schools in order to effectively end the situation and protect the students.
In addition, instead of quitting the court later, he could have gone to the main judge of the state who was Judge Danforth’s boss and told him of the proof that the girls were lying. The facts shown above prove that either Reverend Hale or Abigail Williams could have stopped the mass hysteria that hit Salem Village in Arthur Miller’s play, “The Crucible.” Hale could have prevented it from ever happening and could have stopped it at any time later by going to Danforth’s boss. Abigail Williams could have stopped it by telling the truth from the beginning or at any other point in the play.

The sad truth is, banning all guns will not stop all the gun violence because ultimately, its not the guns that kill people. However if somebody wants to buy a gun, then there should be stricter background checks on medical records to see if there are any issues with mental health.
This scene could’ve been added to show the viewer that the Finch family was not blame for the fact that Atticus was defending Tom.This scene will also impact the community and the relationships that they build with each other, especially after they come together at Miss Maudie’s house. This scene should have been added to the movie, because during the movie they show a lot about the trial and how Scout kept getting into fights at school because Atticus was defending Tom Robinson. Without the support of this scene, a lot of information from the first and second part of the book will be lost, which will cause the movie to be portrayed differently that how it's written in the
In regards to this incident, it might be useful to use information from local authorities as well as ideas from resources by experts. Fein (2002) discusses threats to school on a larger scale with the intent of preventing future attacks from happening. In addition to this resource, training staff on the Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Communicate and Evacuate (ALICE) procedure would be beneficial. If all staff members are trained on this procedure, they might understand their role when responding to a crisis
