You think this is a good idea?

Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

You think this is a good idea?

BURLESON, Texas Freshmen at Burleson High School near Fort Worth area getting lessons on such skills as how to stop a gunshot wound from bleeding.
That'd part of emergency response training given to students and teachers in the Burleson Independent School District, about 13 miles south of Fort Worth.

The district calls it "critical incident response training." Its origins can be traced in a direct line from Colorado's Columbine High School in 1999 to the October Second shootings at a Pennsylvania Amish schoolhouse.

The safety lessons include information about fire drills and tornado warnings, but the main focus is what to do when a gunman enters a classroom. Among the lessons: Use a belt as a sling for broken bones, shoelaces make good tourniquets, and most important of all, don't comply with a gunman's orders.

The school district of about 85-hundred students recently got a 95-thousand-dollar federal grant from the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. District officials say about 12 percent will go to student training, with the rest going to buy such equipment as defibrillators.

Seven other Texas schools districts received similar grants: Aransas County, Alvarado, Angleton, Conroe, Karnes City, Castleberry and Houston[/align]

Agreed!

Hopefully they'd never need to use it, but it would be a GREAT thing to know anyway. I was CPR certified in school.

I cant really see nothing wrong with teaching them most of these things, emergency situations come up in a lot of places besides in school and knowing a little first aid could come in handy for the rest of thier lives.I kinda wish theyd cover this stuff in more schools.

I think it's sad that, as a society, we have come to this point in the last 25 years[&o][&o][&o][&o][&o][&o][&o][&o][&o]

Butpreparing for the unthinkable is a wise move.

The problem is the kids nor the teachers will be armed.They want them to throw books at the attacker and then all try and subdue them.

Another thing I question is how much training will they recieve to get them to aoutomatically act as one.

The video they show on Fox was of a bunch of maybe 5th graders overpowering an adult with a gun.

Fighting back is a little harder when he has a gun and you don't.

How about giving them all a text book that has been strategically cut out to hold, say..............a Glock?

Id rather see our kids and teachers fight back and some survive, than to be lined up along the chalk board, be raped then killed.
