    Gunfire and moments of fear, rural Oregon school

    Sure we all appreciate enthusiasm and initiative.

    How could anybody think this was a good idea?

    Gunfire and moments of fear as a rural Oregon school tests its readiness
    Two masked men wearing hoodies and wielding handguns burst into the Pine Eagle Charter School in this tiny rural community on Friday.
    OH NO

    Not HERE!

    Students were at home for an in-service day, so the gunmen headed into a meeting room full of teachers and opened fire.
    Could have been worse.

    Now the punch line, , ,

    Someone figured out in a few seconds that the bullets were not drawing blood because they were blanks and the exercise was a drill, designed to test Pine Eagle's preparation for an assault by "active shooters" who were, in reality, members of the school staff. But those few seconds left everybody plenty scared.
    I'd be scared too.

    Principal Cammie DeCastro said it became clear very quickly just how many of the school's 15 teachers would have survived. The answer: "Not many," she said.


    Something is just so wrong here,

    They weren't expecting a drill like this, and they were caught by surprise when the two men entered and began firing.

    "There was some commotion," DeCastro said.
    I hope and pray that most of our nations schools are not run by such fools. This DeCastro guy is a piece of work.

    For all my complaint, at least they come to a reasonable conclusion.

    Armed teachers is one possible outcome, she said. Or the district may get armed and trained volunteers from the community to watch over the school in shifts, she said. Tougher doors and better locks are other options.

    Gover said the teachers tend to favor having one or two armed teachers in the building at all times.

    It's f*****g idiotic. On any level you can name. It breeds fear and paranoia and definitely traumatized people for no good reason.

    Now, let's test their nuclear preparedness.... unbelievable.

    So lets imagine that at least one of the teachers/staff HAD been prepared and shot the **** out of the invaders. What a great training exercise.

    What if one of them had been carrying concealed?
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    Could have been tragic, on so many levels.

    A great teaching moment.

    And would have made national/international news.

    Only good news for us who value our freedom.

    No, a teachable moment is when 20 young children are slaughtered. The lesson is that America's gun culture is outdated, outrageous, and out of control.

    That is what some people would say. Blame the outdated "gun culture". get it under control. Problem I am having, just what is this "gun culture"?
