The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

The simpering idiocy of bulletproof whiteboards

Written By: Bob - May• 01•13

Head-in-the-sand types will do darn near anything to avoid the reality that the only thing that has been proven to stop a madman with a weapon is another man with a weapon. I’ve written-up/mocked another dim-witted concept turned multi-thousand dollar debacle by a Minesota school district in my latest article at PJ Media.

I would hope that parents and voters in this district would run their administrators out of town… but I rather suspect they’ll meekly accept wasting even more taxpayer’s money, “for the children.”

    Since they have a shield; now all they will need is a sword & a horse!

    Each teacher gets to live the dream of being Captian America for about 3 seconds before they become Captian Swiss Cheese.

    I mean at least make the thing as big as a Roman scutum, and even then its pretty useless. I guess they hope the active shooter will laugh himself to death. Really, 2 shots is all it takes, one in a leg then follow up to the head/torso after they’re on the ground.

    No need for Level III protection, just emblazon them with: “STOP SHOOTER – THIS IS A GUN FREE ZONE !” Should do the trick.

    Make it a felony to shoot at a bulletproof shield.
    That should do the trick.
