There is New Zealand, where they took the common sense step of banning assault weapons. In the US, we shoot teachers with plastic bullets execution style in safety drills. Guess what's more effective?
Indiana cops shot teachers in the back "execution style" with pellet guns without warning or permission during a school shooting drill. "This is what happens if you just cower and do nothing," they said (after instructing them to cower). Wounds drew blood.
I've finally found an issue on which I am 100% aligned with a public school teacher's union: teachers should *not* be shot with plastic bullets during 'active shooter drills'
