(Scroll down for video) Parents are demanding schools to be more prepared for incidents.

Parents want schools to have more security, where they can stop intruders from entering the school buildings.

One father was so concerned about the safety of his children at school that he decided to test the school’s security system.

It all backfired when he was arrested and charged with terrorism.

Ronald Miller entered his children’s elementary school in Celina, Texas, and he told staff he had a gun. He asked the staff what they would do to stop him from killing students.

The frightened staff members did nothing to stop the man, who claimed to have a gun. Staff members did not call police and they did not stop Miller from roaming the school halls.

Once Miller left the school grounds they called police to report the incident. Miller was later arrested.

Miller said he was a concerned parent, who wanted to prove to school officials that they are not prepared if a maniac decides to kill schoolchildren.

According to police, on Wednesday, Miller went to the school and threatened staff members, telling them he had a gun. Miller told police that he was trying to show that the school was not prepared to prevent a mass shooting.

Parents were outraged that the school was not on lockdown and that Miller was able to walk the halls. Superintendent Donny O’Dell defended the school and said that the proper procedures were taken.

“We did not go into lockdown because basically, none of our kids were at risk and they were all safe. The person was gone before the risk arose,” O’Dell said.

Miller was arrested on charges of terrorism in the 3rd degree, and he is being held on $75,000 bail.
