WATCH: MA School District Unveils New Plan to Defend Against Shooters…Buckets.



So…this isn’t actually the worst plan in the world, but until we’re actually discussing making schools harder targets instead of the deathtrap “gun free zone” soft target they are today, any measure of security for a classroom is most likely going to be…forgive me, but…a bandaid on a bullet wound.

A school district in Massachuttes has spent the summer putting together buckets for teachers to better lock down a classroom in the event of a school shooting, and they’re…kind of helpful.

A school district in Massachusetts thinks it has found one solution to the problem of school shootings: equip every schoolroom with a 5-gallon blue bucket containing a wooden doorstop, a 1-pound hammer, a 50-foot length of rope and a roll of duct tape.

The Brockton, Massachusetts mayor’s office worked over the summer with the Lowe’s location at the Westgate Mall to assemble over 1,080 buckets this summer that will equip district classrooms this fall, according to Deputy Superintendent Mike Thomas. Thomas stated, “If something bad happens, you have to think quickly on your feet. Teachers can’t be running around the room looking for cords, or looking for something to smash a window. Now they know exactly where everything is.”

Mayor Bill Carpenter echoed, “It is without a doubt that these coordinated efforts will assist in the efforts to strengthen existing safety initiatives and ensure Brockton Public Schools continues to be a safe learning environment.”

Lowe’s store manager Chad Gaucher added, “There’s no better way to give back than to the kids of the future.” Lowe’s offered the buckets at a wholesale price, roughly $11 each.

Thomas told WCVB 5, “You can actually put the wedge under the door, bang it underneath … it just provides for an extra barrier for the door, and it’s harder to open the door. … The way we train our teachers, if there is an intruder in the building it is either hide, run, or fight. You could actually break the window if you are on the first floor, get all the kids out that way.” He added that the rope could be used to help secure the door.

I will give them this–one of the biggest criticisms of school safety measures at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass was that students were told to exit classrooms, which it was later discovered was the opposite advice offered by a security expert who had previously consulted with school administrators.

Locking down a classroom is a more effective safety measure to keep students safe in the event of a shooting. There is no one single thing someone can do to make a school safer, and this won’t hurt.

But this absolutely must be coupled with the placement of an armed school resource officer on sight, secured entrances and exits, and for the love of all things holy, allowing legally concealed weapons carried by law-abiding responsible gun owners on campus

Biden Looks Straight Into Camera, Says America Is ‘Morally Deprived’ — Watch

Proud American, right here.

John Salvatore



He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

Biden: America ‘Has Never Fully Lived Up to the Founding Principles of This Nation’

He just loves America so much.

John Salvatore



President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
