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

WATCH: Omar Openly Mocks Conservative Christians From Floor of House of Representatives

Different day, same radical.

Different day, same Ilhan Omar. The Minnesota Democrat can’t seem to stop putting her foot in her mouth, seemingly in an attempt to keep up with fellow freshman lawmakers Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY). Check out her speech from the House floor where she attacks conservative Christians for being pro-life… From Daily Wire: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked conservative people on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday over their advocacy for pro-life stances on abortion. Ilhan said, “I rise today to defy the horrifying attacks happening against women’s reproductive rights all across this country. Religious fundamentalists are currently trying to manipulate state laws in order to impose their beliefs on an entire society, all with complete disregard for voices and the rights of American women.” She added, “I am frustrated every single time I hear people speaking about their faith and pushing that on to other people because we know those so-called religious politicians, when it comes to their life, their choices, they want to talk about freedom. But when it comes to other people’s lives and other people’s choices, they want to talk about religion. This should outrage every single person. It certainly outrages me and we can no longer stand for it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1131354195175460864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131354195175460864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47573%2Fwatch-ilhan-omar-attacks-conservative-people-faith-ryan-saavedra Congressional Dems are taking a stand against Ilhan. From From Beacon: The reelection campaign for Rep. Lucy McBath (D., Ga.) said Wednesday it rejected a $2,000 contribution sent to it by her fellow Democratic freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar (Minn.), who has been criticized by colleagues on both sides of the aisle for anti-Semitism. The Free Beacon first reported the $2,000 contribution given by Omar to McBath, whose campaign oddly left the contribution off its quarterly fundraising report. Pressed on the reason for its absence on Tuesday, the McBath campaign…
