Bullet Resistant Glass Film Being Installed In Some Tennessee Schools Following Covenant Shooting

Apr 27, 2023 | Political News

Following the mass shooting at The Covenant School, a private Christian school in Green Hills, that took the lives of three children and three adults, Lt. Gov. Randy McNally sent a letter to Governor Bill Lee asking for schools across the state to upgrade their security.

One of McNally’s proposals was to secure windows and glass in school buildings.

McNally wrote, “As you know, the perpetrator in the most recent school shooting shot out the glass of the school’s doors to gain entry. My understanding is that there is a film that can be affixed to the windows and doors in schools that would be bulletproof or resistant.”

Now, schools across the state are considering installation of ballistic glass film or have already had it installed.

One such school is United Christian Academy, a private school in Dickson, that had ballistic glass film applied to its glass doors and windows by Dickson Graphics.
