We just had an active shooter drill. For my fellow old people, this is where you are instructed to cower in the dark until someone comes over the intercom to tell you to stop cowering in the dark.
That's our solution. "run, hide, fight." Of course, the first thing they do is lock all the doors. Apparently this school had six months of meetings before coming up with the solution "leave all the doors locked all the time and put a magnet in the jamb so that it can be removed quickly when the monsters come."
"Run, hide, fight."
My daughter is going to grow up in an environment where a couple times a year she's going to be instructed to cower in the dark and hope the monsters don't see her. Because there are douchebags who vote who are so afraid of the unknown that they need an AR-15 to cuddle.
Of course, this is a class full of rednecks so all of them were OUTRAGED that they weren't allowed to walk around with AR-15s themselves because a firefight is going to solve the problem. The same people who explain that they unwind by getting into bar fights.
Run hide fight.
I wonder what would happen if every stupid fucking redneck insisting on his unassailable right to pack heat every fucking where he goes would do if twice a year, he was required to cower in a darkened classroom for fifteen minutes behind ineffectually-locked doors.
