Hockey Pucks?

  • To prepare for an active shooter, faculty and students at Oakland University are arming themselves — with hockey pucks. The idea of using the quirky self-defense tool grew out of a training session Police Chief Mark Gordon led in March for faculty members on what they should do if a gunman enters their classroom.

    A participant asked what people could bring to campus to be better prepared in case they need to fight back. The university has a no-weapons policy.

    Gordon's advice? Be ready to throw something — anything — that could distract a shooter, even a hockey puck, as a last resort if fleeing or hiding aren't an option. "It was just kind of a spur-of-the-moment idea that seemed to have some merit to it and it kind of caught on," Gordon said.
A regular schmo can throw a fastball at about 40 to 50 MPH. Inaccurately. And they forgot the most important piece of equipment:


That would make it quicker....and you could use the stick as a weapon afterwards.

$20 says a majority of these limp wristed, gender studies soyboys couldn’t throw a puck 10 feet without injuring themselves in the process.

Just think...
The progressives and liberals are fleeing
the deeply shit-through bed known as California
and spreading their seditious, treasonous,

Only the liberals who run colleges could come up with an idea like this.
Remember many colleges had unarmed campus police at one time.
Unbelievable!

I will bring a new idea to campus. They have a no weapons policy. Why are they worried about an active shooter? If they have a no weapons policy, why are they weaponizing hockey pucks or anything else? It is a question for the philosophy department chair to discuss with faculity and bring forth to the academic senate for consideration. Why are we weaponizing hockey pucks or anything else in view of our intelligent declarations we have a university no weapons policy? They give diplomas to these students, university trained idiots who then get jobs where I work and bring their stupidity to my work place disgusting the seasoned workers with such stupidity. The chief needs to be the sound mind there; if that is possible,

Don Rickles - “Who’s this hockey puck”?

Liberalism is a disease.
I surprised Home Alone is still being aired.
When all the guns are gone, protect yourself Kevin McAllister style.
I like the swinging paint can defense.

Why does it have to be a hockey puck?
That’s insensitive and not inclusive to those who;
- carry their Instagram cellaphone in their throwing hand
- can’t throw
- are unfamiliar with the limited seasonal sport and prefer their choice of sporting apparatus
- find it’s shape, colour to be demeaning and appropriating

I wonder if Univ of Oakland Police Chief Gordon workshopped that idea with Oakland PD Chief Granny Ann “I’ve been everywhere man” Clampett-Fitzpatrick

California dreaming.
I fling poop in your general direction.
It’s natural, sustaining, renewable, biodegradable and a’plenty.

Rather than spending money on commie activist crank instructors and resistance rallies the UO faculty relies on donations and the sale of hockey pucks for the installation of classroom door locks.
What a world.

Not to worry. The school has a no weapons policy which I’m sure extends to the campus grounds also. How is a shooter ever going to get to shoot if he isn’t allowed to bring a weapon into the school or on school grounds? Those people just aren’t thinking.......
