Hockey pucks...

If you’ve never been hit with a flying hockey puck, let it be known they really, really hurt.

This is better than arming teachers with guns, right?

1. What a bizarre thought experiment.

"better prepared in case they need to fight back"

"Be ready to throw something — anything"

"just the idea of having something"

"a reminder that you’re not powerless and you’re not helpless in the classroom"

"or anything that has weight" and could hurt and distract a shooter"

"cause injury is the bottom line of what you’re trying to do"

"hey all throw hockey pucks at the same time, it would be quite the distraction"

BUT NOT A GUN, YOU GUYS!!!!!


It's the wrong conversation, and the wrong approach. This is what you get when you have individualized, fragmented, non-scientific discussions about a massive public health issue. Embarrassing.
