IV. Outro

We want to thank Laura for coming on the show and telling us about FASTER Colorado. We think it goes without saying that we need to protect our innocent children at all costs.  Hopes, prayers and more gun control certainly won’t accomplish it, but hardening our schools certainly can. We hope more states start to see programs like Laura’s as a proactive way to accomplish this and we thank her so very much for leading this charge.
