Arm Teachers With....

  • A Pennsylvania school district is arming its teachers with baseball bats to defend themselves and students against potential gunmen in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

    Officials from the Millcreek School District in Erie, Pennsylvania distributed 16-inch baseball bats to its 500 teachers as a "last resort," district Superintendent William Hall, told Erie News Now.

    Teachers received the bats, which cost the district about $1,800 to buy, after they attended a training day on how to respond to school shootings.
So a few weeks ago, it was a bucket of "river rocks" that school administrators were expecting first-graders to be able to hurl at gunmen with unerring accuracy while under fire.

Now it's baseball bats - not even real bats, but 16" souvenir bats - which (as every one in Chicago knows) aren't even real deadly weapons, even if they're full sized and wielded by mentally ill individuals intent on mayhem.

It they said they were being armed with a sword I'd feel better. Don't bring a bat to a gun fight or is it, don't bring a knife to a gunfight.

The bats will also be handy in breaking up fights in the classroom or halls. Teachers can defend themselves from rowdy Amish students.

Almost $2,000 spent for dick squat.

Shit, even the quantity of .22lr that 2 large could get for those 500 or so would give more bang for those bucks.

If even 10% of those 500 acquired 9 shot target revolvers, the potential for something useful to develop from expending 2 grand would exceed this farce nonsense.

But, hey, it's an educator conceived strategy, so, it must be brilliant!!!!!

Bats are a bad idea. If the teacher has to defend him/her self from a student and makes that nano second decision to wack the student his career and life are over. How about pies to throw at the gun man. Cream pies like coconut, boston, banana or fruit pies like strawberry, apple, blueberry. Much safer that leaving the bat around so a student can get it. When the gun man comes it to the classroom eveybody pelt him with a pie. He will be so surprised, blinded by the pie filling, and distracted by the taste of the pie and will probably slip and fall from the filling. So the school should carry some liability insurance in case the gun man sues. The pie will also mark him for later identification by law enforcement should he flee.

Just hang it on the back wall of the classroom as a decoration and reminder of wasted tax dollars and NEVER touch it again. That’s the best policy teachers. Trust me.

In all seriousness, at least they're doing something more useful than standing around in denial, wringing their hands and fantasizing about da gubmint making all those big scary guns magically go away. Though if it was me I'd be handing out knives, not bats--with a knife you can get close enough to get the shooter's gun hand(s) out of the way and do some damage but a bat requires you to stand three feet away like a putz. Epic fail just waiting to happen.

How about a practice run? A paintball gun against all the teachers with mini bats. May cause a reassessment of this strategy.

This is all fine and good until a student gets hold of one and goes to town on a fellow classmate. Then they will be confiscated and end up locked up in a cabinet in the principals office.

So when is batting practice. Must have been a liberal gun control nut that thought this one up. 16" bat because they really don't want to stop attack, better to have attack and blame the NRA then do something like give teachers guns and training which might actually thwart an attack. Won't be happy until only criminals have the guns. Then will be fun hearing them scream for help.

CPS has a hands off policy and strongly disagrees with the plan to outfit classrooms here.
But the feral urchins would use the sticks and stone to pelt each other and mostly the teachers.

How many dead kids are these idiots willing to accept, before they admit they need someone, trained with a gun to stall or end the attacker.

Not a bucket of rocks, not a baseball bat, special door locks or another "no guns allowed - and this time we really mean it" sign?

These left wing loonies would rather let kids die, than admit and accept that the NRA has been right all along.

Arm them with the same kind of bat that
Quintonio Legrier came sailing down those
stairs with...

"It's for the children..."

It'll be fine.
The community insists that bats aren't
a weapon when they're aimed at a Policeman's noggin.

So whither thus the notion that a classroom
invading psychopath can be fended off with
a souvenir bat?

Or go blind?

Liberalism IS a disease.

That is what I was thinking. A pistol in a holster would be on the carrier continuously. A bat, not so much.

The biggest problem will be the wanna be coach/teacher who will try to correct the bat swingers
Telling them "don't choke up so much" " get your stance wider" " swing from the hips" etc
Will distract the teachers from subduing the guy with the gun

Every location upon the surface of our planet where humans reside, are well fed and watered, without a substantial portion of the populace having to labor strenuosly, all day long, for said well feeding and watering, has produced progeny which fails to understand, let alone appreciate, the realities of the nature of the world.

Famines, caused by the historical handful of means, correct this failure to appreciate within less than one generation.

The conundrum is what it has always been: Desire to prosper vs Nature's intent to pulverize.

These absurdities masquerading as "educators" are the plague most likely to bring the realities to the deadly forefront where they are always relentlessly striving to be.

The thread supporting plenty is rarely seen to be a thread, and is always barely a cunt hair's thickness....thus, the often underappreciated thinning of the herd can be relied upon to appear when least anticipated.

The misunderstood evolutionary theory, devolved and distorted from the clarity of only the strongest survive to reproduce themselves into a fantasy declaring the mysterious appearance of everything from nothing, reduces the fundemental truth of Survival of the Fittest to an afterthought.

Big mistake.

Really big mistake.

A mistake made by.......educators........

Your understanding of the methods of batological combat are woefully lacking...... are your overly optimistic expectations of the magical powers of the sharp edged tools commonly called a knives.

The subject scenario, in all it's seemingly incomprehensable complexities, can be imagined thusly:

You, yes, YOU, are sitting on a chair, at a desk, in a room, within a building.

The sounds of people screaming and the pop, pop, pop reports, so like firecrackers, whether loud/nearby or faint/some distance away, gain your attention and awareness., (yes, YOU)..... Do?

Now.....right now.....this very fucking moment of now?

Then, what do you do next?

And next?

And next?

And next?????

That is the way to, using your imagination, conjure up possibilities to ponder, consider, reconsider and reach some tentative conclusion as to what could be effectively done, by you, being there, that there, where you want so badly not to be. Yet, there you are.

I don't know how many people on this blog have ever been in an enclosed space when a gun is going off but I have. On a summers night, many years ago, several of us were going up a pitch black stairwell on a job in the Horner Homes. Somebody, a couple floors above us, cut loose with about ten rounds. What they were shooting I have no idea. Who or what they were shooting at I have no idea. All I know is that in that concrete stairwell it sounded like a battleship pounding the beaches of Normandy! The instant pucker factor was so high you couldn't have pounded a greased toothpick up my ass with a hammer! How we all managed to scrape up enough balls between us to keep going up the stairs I don't know but we did. Ultimately, we cleared the next couple floors and found nobody. We could still smell the gun powder, though. My point to this story is that there is no way I can imagine some poor group of scared to death kids and their liberal teacher being able to attack a guy firing an AR with a bucket of rocks or a miniature baseball bat!

Get a load of this

Even Netflix jumped on the bandwagon of liberal fuckheads. There is a new series that came out "LOST IN SPACE", anyway on one of the scenes a crew member "WILL" is given a gun from a robot and immediately looks at it with disgust and tells the robot "I DON"T WANT THAT". The point of the matter is in my time when I was a kid maybe three decades ago the answer would of been different. The liberal communist leaders in this country are doing a fine job disarming law abiding citizens all over while the criminals "Political Also" are keeping the guns. The Police with their evil guns will also be disarmed pretty soon the way things are headed. God Bless.....

BUT take the the gun free zone signs, and let the individual teacher decide if they want to defend themselves, and their students.

The choice is theirs

This is politically-driven nonsense. Ask yourself, if you were confined to a classroom or office space for the greater portion of a day, what weapon would you choose to best defend yourself?

I've studied this extensively. Based on the fact that the physical plant never changes, the ports of ingress and egress are known and fixed, the range is relatively short, and over-penetration is a concern, the conclusion is obvious:

Tactical shotgun.

12 or 20. I have both, but prefer the 20 with number 3 or 4 buck. And by the way, it's about the size of a baseball bat.

So the real solution takes a backseat to the insane notion of arming classrooms with sticks and rocks because the "delicate" people are afraid of and repulsed by firearms.

How about we split the difference between throwing rocks or hitting the bad guys with micro bats and arming teachers with firearms, and just equip every room with a potato gun, and a supply of frozen potatoes (put 'em in dry ice)?

Bad guy gets in the room, "VOOOOOOOMP", "THUD", "OH SHIT" - nail the fucker with a frozen potato. What's the caliber on that?

Of course you gotta have some propane torches in the case too, in order to ignite the thing, too much pressure and they explode, but hey - at least it's not a "firearm" right?

For a group that insists "teachers aren't soldiers", and "fighting isn't in their job description", as if that had anything to do with it, the left sure cooks up some crazy scenarios for stopping mass shooters. You can't expect a teacher to use a handgun against a mass shooter, but if we give that same teacher a miniature baseball bat and ban high-capacity magazines, he can charge in and take him while he reloads! Remember, teachers aren't soldiers, they're Neo from The Matrix.
