These administrators don’t have their party affiliation revealed, but we’re betting they’re liberal Democrat teacher’s union members *
Have you heard the good news? Shootings taking the lives of innocent students and teachers are a thing of the past, thanks to the wisdom of William Hall, Millcreek School District Superintendent in Erie, Pennsylvania. The man is nothing if not innovative. Assumedly he devised this strategy himself, since we haven’t heard of anyone else wanting to share credit for it.
The Washington Free Beacon reports on the sheer brilliance of Hall’s foolproof idea to bring safety to our schools.
The 16-inch bats were recently distributed to each teacher following an in-service training day on how to respond to school shootings.
“This is a tool to have in the event we have nothing else,” said Millcreek Education Association president Jon Cacchione. “Part of the formula now, is to fight back, and so I think the bats that were provided for the staff were symbolic of that.” Cacchione says he supports the decision to arm teachers with bats, which will be locked up in each classroom.
Hasn’t the “formula” always been to fight back? “Symbols” of retaliation against a shooter, are irrelevant to those who think lucidly.
Even though the school district he oversees is in Erie, you’ll notice the spelling is the same as the canal, not eerie, as in darkly sinister. The bats aren’t the nocturnal sort, either. They are small. and incapable of inflicting damage to a person with a gun.
Gong Erie’s Millcreek Distict even one better, the Hill reports David Helsel, the superintendent of Blue Mountain School District in rural Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania has armed students with buckets of rocks as a “last resort” against armed intruders.
Bucket of rocks!
Every classroom now has a five-gallon bucket of rocks that students can hurl in the event there is an active shooter.
Our Constitutional framers, who enshrined the Second Amendment immediately following the guarantees of free speech and assembly in the First Amendment would be appalled by the blatant ignorance of these educrats. In 2008, the Second Amendment rights of the individual to keep and bear arms were upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller.
Several years ago conservative radio personality Michael Savage wrote a book titled, “Liberalism is a mental disorder.” His words ring of brilliance.
