Denver Public Schools won’t publicly release photographs of guns the district has confiscated

9NEWS: Denver Public Schools has refused to make public photographs of guns confiscated by the district – contending that releasing them could undermine safety practices, aid potential school shooters and create “panic” and “confusion.”

The decision came amid questions about school safety in the wake of a March 22 shooting at East High School that sent two deans to the hospital.

The failure to make the photos public upset one man who has gotten involved in a safety advocacy group.

“I understand their need to be discreet in some situations, but a wholesale decision to not release anything is just the continued stonewalling of transparent communication to the parents,” said Steve Katsaros, the father of two sons, one in middle school and one in high school.
