Teaching kids to fight back against classroom invaders -

Teaching kids to fight back against classroom invaders - "Youngsters in a suburban Fort Worth, Texas, school district are being taught not to sit there like good boys and girls with their hands folded if a gunman invades the classroom, but to rush him and hit him with everything they've got -- books, pencils, legs and arms.'Getting under desks and praying for rescue from professionals is not a recipe for success,' said Robin Browne, a major in the British Army reserve and an instructor for Response Options, the company providing the training to the Burleson schools.That kind of fight-back advice is all but unheard of among schools, and some fear it will get children killed."

Is it just me are are they totally missing the point? The Bad Guy is coming into the school to KILL people. The Bad Guy is there to kill children, he might have a target list, he may not, but let us be clear on one point:

The Bad Guy is there to kill people already.

At that point the only thing you can do is do everything in your power to minimize the number of people we let him kill. It takes too long for police to show up, one of the school shooters came to school with nearly 1000 rounds of ammunition, plenty to kill everyone in the whole school.

Have they forgotten the lessons of 9/11 so soon. The Bad Guys are trying to kill us, and we are the only ones who can stop them.
