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

Published

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

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

Dem-Controlled House Unveils ‘Court Packing’ Legislation, Want 13 Justices on SCOTUS

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
