What could possibly go wrong?

Today’s idiots are the Phillipsburg School District for this particularly dangerous case of teh st00pid:

About 50 teachers at a New Jersey school experienced a terrifying moment when a shooting rampage turned out to be a drill, but the teachers didn’t know it.

Wow.

    So, if someone had grabbed a chair and brained the guy, would he have faced charges?

    Also, how does the noise level of blanks compare to that of live rounds, in an interior room such as this?

    Someone’s head will roll on this one.

    one interview of these days this is going to happen with a “sheepdog” in the room and a cop is gonna get pummelled or killed.

    “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods; They kill us for their sport.”

    That’s what happens to people who’ve been disarmed by law. They don’t get treated with respect; they get used.

    Bruce, I was thinking the same thing! Also I think blanks are LOUDER than conventional rounds as the hot gasses don’t have any time to cool off.

    At least I know that lighter bullets often make for louder loads (I shot some 110 .357 Magnums the other day. Not much recoil but DAMN it made some heads turn!)

    no matter what, even if they were just .22 blanks, that’s enugh to cause hearing damage in an indoor environment

    If the sheeple were that worried about it, they could move a couple of miles west and be in gun friendly Pennsylvania.

    This will continue until someone gets seriously hurt.

    Either a kid / teacher will panic and either suffer some sort of health crisis because of it or just hurt themselves in a frantic escape attempt, or someone who’s actually thought about the situation will take effective action against the ‘shooter’.

    Wonder how many teachers keep one of those solid brass apples on their desk as a paperweight? In addition I wonder how many of them pitch on their ball teams?

    God I hate cops. When I write “cops” I don’t mean government guys with badges, necessarily, but all people who like to shove other people around and bully them, and get a charge out of that. I mind some schoolteachers I knew when young, some bosses and a landlady I’ve had, some folks in my family, etc. and usw.

    As God is my witness, I hate bullies.

    I have an idea, let the NJ experimenters do this now at the Harrold,Texas school and compare results. That would be a meaningful exercise.

  9. Lyle Says:

    The article doesn’t say whether any students were present. There’s only a reference to “angry parents”. Shall we assume there were students in the library? If so, were any of them traumatized, or was that reaction exclusive to the teachers?

    Sounds like a lefty-loony attempt at recruiting anti gun activists. “You see how bad this is? Donate to the VPC today, or next time it could be real!”

    I like straightarrow’s proposal. There they would learn the meaning of “preparedness”.

    If they try that in my room, someone is going to get very seriously hurt. I swear to God, if someone tries to get in between me and my students, either he will die, or I will.

    I’ve already decided I won’t go back to those parents empty-handed, and I’m not going to dick around about it.

    “Do you think the teachers should have been warned about the drill?

    The “poll” with the article is inadequate. They needed this:
    “Do you think a teacher should have shot the man dead when he ‘burst into the library and started shooting.’ ?

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that would be the poll winner.

    Imagine if one of the adults had decided that “concealed is concealed” and carried in the gun free zone.

    Surely even a Philly DA couldnt convict on the deaths of cops in that situation… though the hero would get branded a lunatic and tossed in jail for breaking the gun free school zones laws…
