Sarah Donahoe, account manager for A3 Communications, demonstrates the CEIA OPENGATE weapons detector unit at Monday night's Greensville County School Board meeting.

Several board members opposed Kamras’ proposal, criticizing it for failing to acknowledge that gun violence needed to be addressed outside of schools first.
