Real effective, there.

Apparently, the Big Education establishment has realized that lockdowns in active shooter situations just makes it easier for the shooter to find sufficient victims.  They've authorized teachers to remove students from campuses under attack, telling them to run and hide, or fight if necessary.

With a fire extinguisher.

I don't know, here, guys.  I'm not an expert, but...don't you think that maybe permitting teachers to get a concealed carry permit, and carry a gun might, maybe, be a little more effective than spraying a shooter with a fire extinguisher?  Or are you expecting your teachers to be able to do that and then take the shooter's gun? 

Because that's not real likely to work.

  1. It might. When I have been forced to be disarmed (Oddly enough, during my Military service) that was my plan, spray them with foam to blind them, hit them with the metal canister while they are unable to see, and take the enemies weapon.

    Charging with my knife is another plan, preferably from behind.

    Although, yes, in the best case scenario we are working toward, the teacher would be armed with Constitutional Carry.

    1. Keep this in mind: most teachers who declare a teacher ed major (or worse, wash out of their initial major and major in teacher ed by default) are not the brightest of bulbs, and many won't think they'll need to hit the gun-toting maniac after they spray them.

  3. " the kids who isolate themselves in their bedrooms for 20 hours a day, and their only relationship is an electronic relationship,” Bear said. “Research has shown that relationships with adults are critically important for kids to mature and develop and be able to manage life.”


    But... that would require parenting. Of course cutting the cord to the internet for a while might help.

    1. Yep. But it's so much easier for two parents who work full time to let their kids do this. Keeps the kids out of the parents' hair, and lets the parents do housework and cook dinner that neither were home to take care of.

      Division of labor, where Dad works outside the home and Mom works inside it, works so much better for physically and mentally healthy kids.
