The bill establishes within the Department of Homeland Security, a nonprofit security grant program under which FEMA shall make grants to eligible, nonprofit organizations determined to be at risk of a terrorist attack, such as religious buildings.

Funds may be used to enhance security measures, including physical security equipment, inspection and screening systems, cybersecurity and personnel security training.

"I am delighted to welcome Cornerstone Communications as part of the Privateer Market Force to our Team," said Merrill Moses, Defense Technologies International Corp.'s President and CEO. "With the assistance of Cornerstone, our Passive Portal will soon become known Nationwide as the best and a "harmless" solution to the problem of "security" for our schools, sporting events, Airports and other public venues. This allows us to better demonstrate our 'Safe" solution to protect our children and the public at large from the heightened problem of weapons being brought to schools and other public venues."
The Passive Portal uses the 'Earth's Magnetic Fields' with no emissions for detection of dangerous weapons in the educational environment and is extremely safe for any person passing through. Other competing devices use technology with emissions that many parents, teachers and administrators are wary of. The 'Passive Portal' is the state-of-the-art for this security purpose and is significantly less expensive, allowing for more life-saving units to be deployed.
We are pleased to present the Company's Subsidiary's Video Production of the "Passive Portal", the Company's walk-through, passive weapons and metal detector scanner.
