Metal Detector Searches: An Effective Means To Help Keep Weapons Out of Schools.
Johnson, Robert S.
Journal of Law and Education, v29 n2 p197-203 Apr 2000
Disagrees with Ferraraccio's views and argues that: (1) students do bring illegal weapons to school; (2) metal detectors do detect weapons and help schools to disarm students; (3) disarming students reduces the threat of violence; and (4) courts have repeatedly approved the constitutionality of weapon-related suspicionless student searches conducted with metal detectors.
