The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a fake good guy with his fist!
In other news, this is indescribably juvenile and silly.
PHOENIX (AP) — The self-proclaimed “America’s Toughest Sheriff” is joining forces this weekend with action movie star Steven Seagal to train volunteer armed posse members to defend Phoenix-area schools against gunmen.
Seagal, best known for his roles in movies such as “Above the Law” and “Under Siege,” will lead training on hand-to-hand defense tactics, among other techniques, drawing from his expertise in martial arts, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
Arizona Democratic House Minority Leader Chad Campbell called the plan to use Seagal as an instructor “ludicrous.”
“Steve Seagal is an actor. That’s it. Why don’t we also have Clint Eastwood and Chuck Norris and Bruce Willis come out and train them too while we’re at it,” Campbell said.

7. Neither are Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johansson -
I've seen THEIR movies.
But I welcome their political view despite it.
I don't reject them because they cannot act.

9. It seems like Mr. Seagal must think that teachers get paid like he does for making movies.
He thinks they have time for all of this training when sometimes they have a hard time just finding the time to do all of the extra things that their jobs entail.
How about if we work to make sure that teachers only have to educate the children and not be martial arts experts as well?
