This video, courtesy of the Record Journal, shows one of the scenarios we ran this weekend in order to gather data about school shootings and whether an armed teacher would be effective in stopping or slowing down an active shooter. In the video, an armed teacher successfully keeps a shooter from entering the room even when he has no advanced warning, must draw from concealment and has no idea whether the next time the door opens it will be the shooter. Sure it may be on a smaller scale, but I think it will give us enough data for a quick analysis and let us start thinking about how we can do something like this on a larger scale. We have tons of video from yesterday and we’ll be posting it along with a full analysis of our findings shortly. And by “shortly” I mean as soon as RF can FedEx the cameras to me.

I mean, deport himself. Meanwhile, he’s doing what he can to antagonize his detractors. Check out this Morgan meisterwerk penned for Blighty’s dailymail.co.uk . . .
