    Really is a crap shoot, always be there when you can and minimize the amount of time your kids are out of reach to lower the odds. However, even when they are with you, nothing you are carrying can prevent a stray bullet from a drive-by. Prepare them without scaring them. As soon as I hit the lottery you are all invited to join my walled in compound in Northern ID, I guarantee somebody will always be armed there.

    Raise your kids right, teach them combatives and trust in God.
    Seek safety at the heart of danger.

    First, I applaud you attitude. If more teachers had it maybe groups like the NEA would push to allow teachers to CCW. (Yeah, right)

    You might want to look around and see what exists in your envirioment that could be used as a weapon. For instance, fire extinguishers (both to spray in their faces and to hit them with), fire axes, and fire hoses (throw it out into the hallway and turn it on. Shooter's going to have fun trying to advance down a hallway with one of those whipping around).

    I'd try to see if it was possible to get keys to the 2 alternate exits, even if unofficially. Also a potential use for a fire axe.

    The point is, there are no dangerous weapons, only dangerous people. Improvise, adapt and overcome. Hopefully you'll never need to try

    Im a single parent & I hope im never in a situation where I have to defend myself. My daughter is 4 yrs old & if someone is stupid enough to put my daughter in danger by trying to harm me, then they deserve what they have coming to them.

    But its also a 2 way thing, I never put myself in a situation where somebody might try to rob me - when she is with me.

    Absafarginlootly right! At Columbine, Kliebold and Harris entered the library and walked past several students at tables to their left. They went around the library in a counter-clockwise direction, shooting students as they went. They took time to light and throw a pipe bomb and then continued around. When they finally got back to the tables to the left, THE STUDENTS WERE STILL SITTING THERE so they shot some of them too.

    There are alot of little things that you can do to try and prevent a robery!

    *Dont wear excessive jewelry -or- items such as furs. Leave the Rolex at home. LoL
    *Dont Park in dark places.
    *Dont let anybody in your proxcemity.
    *Avoid high crime neighborhoods after dark.
    *If im shoping I keep a resonable amout of cash or a single credit card seperate from everything else - Dont pull out hundreds of dollars when your only paying for 10 gallons of gas.

    Most of this is common sence
