    Article - Teaching common sense school protection

    I came across this article by Dave Kopel in the National Review and thought it was pretty good overall. Seeing how the operative phrase is, "common sense" I don't think we can count on seeing any of these suggestions put into action in the near future. That would be too much to ask.

    I like Utah's approach. Maybe add some training for all of the teachers and students in what to do in a variety of situations (in and out of school). That would reduce the incidence of school shootings and reduce the fatalities when they happen. It might also give people a more realistic view of self-defense in general.

    Finally, someone gets it.

    Quote from article: "Our nation has too many people who are not only unwilling to learn how to protect themselves, but who are also determined to prevent innocent third persons from practicing active defense. A person has the right to choose to be a pacifist, but it is wrong to force everyone else to act like a pacifist. It is the policies of the pacifist-aggressives which have turned American schools into safe zones for mass murderers."

    That's what I'm sayin'. I hope this attitude catches on with the le
