Moms Demand & Shannon Watts against Police and Teachers training.

Moms Demand Active Shooter Training

 

Blanks were fired from guns at an Ohio district’s schools this week, as part of a safety exercise to let students know what gunshots sound like.

The blanks were fired in the hallways or school offices of Champion high school and middle school on Monday, reported local outlet WFMJ-TV. No gunshots were fired in areas that could have contained students.

The drill was part of training designed by ALICE Training Institute, an organization that helps schools develop plans for dealing with armed intruders, said the outlet. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. School personnel had already received training from ALICE prior to the drill.

So the local PD and School District decide not only to do some training but they dare to inject small amount of realism by shooting blanks far enough away from any student gathering as possible and people lose their minds. We even have what we can call a New Age Idiotic parent whose patchouli panties apparent got twisted:

One concerned parent, however, told the outlet that he did not think it was necessary for guns to be shot at school for the training.”Record a gunshot and play it over the loud speaker,” the parent told the outlet.

This is very very bad. No wonder Moms Demand is against it. God forbid they suddenly run out of bleeding/dying victims as it would put a dent on their efforts. Why would cops be prepared to act or teachers ready to minimize casualties?

    Bingo. MDA don’t care about reducing casualties or improving public safety, they just want guns out of the hands of citizens. For that to happen, they need a steady stream of deaths and injuries and crimes with guns as closely involved as possible.

    Closely enough that they’re willing to make illegal 911 calls or hand a rifle to some down-on-his-luck loser if that’s what it takes to make it happen.

  2. In the Army, this is called multi-echelon training. Different levels of training taking place at the same time all off which contribute to the same outcome. Realistic training is also very important. Having children present adds to the value of the training for the officers and also helps with showing the students what to expect.
    Groups of the ilk of the MOMs also seem to object to the concept introduced by ALICE training in that students and teachers are taught that when hiding hasn’t worked, that they should fight back. Of course, the best course of action would be to lock the doors, get the children behind cover if possible, and then take up a good position and prepare to engage any assailant coming through the door with a firearm you are trained to use.
    The federal government actually advocates this tactic in requiring all of its employees to watch a video titled “RUN. HIDE. FIGHT.® Surviving an Active Shooter Event”

    They even make soldiers watch it, which is where I first saw it. IMHO, the issue is that they object to addressing an unpleasant subject in which there isn’t going to be any kind of good outcome, so the best you’re going to be able to do is to minimize the level of bad. Something I find quite similar to the “safe sex” training now fairly universal in schools.
