Terrorism is something that we cannot ignore. People around the world are forced to deal with the reality of extremists in their midsts, so the best thing we can do is prepare.
In this case, Colorado teachers are taking steps that make them the first line of security for the students as well. Dennis Michael Lynch reports that these teachers are taking a three-day course that covers both first response situations as well are firearms training. The amazing course is called FASTER, which stands for Faculty/Administration Safety Training and Emergency Response.
We NEED our teachers to be ready to go if something happens and terrorists strike. The odds of one school being singled out are slim, but that is exactly why ALL schools should go through this training. We would be willing to bet that terrorists and nutjobs would think twice before trying anything with a school if they knew that there were people armed inside.
One of the people who attended the class, Tom Mauser, who had a child die during the Columbine High School shooting in 1999, said he thinks it is a bad idea. Mauser’s reasoning is that if the teachers have guns, there could be a chance of crossfire. He should know better than anyone that if teachers DON’T have guns, it is open season on all of the students — and teachers — with no one to stand in the way.
Aside from just the standard firearms training, other valuable lessons, such as crisis management and first aid, are taught. Both of these lessons go hand-in-hand with the firearms training. Teachers are empowered to stop a would-be assailant, and the wounded can be tended to while the faculty gets everyone calm and under control.
The final day of the three-day course involves a full-on mock shooting. It is an all day event where the teachers will get to practice everything they learned from the previous two days.
Being able to try out things you have learned can be beneficial for if, and God forbid, the time comes, you would have executed the procedures already. The lessons taught here are invaluable, not just for work, but for life.
The sooner the Left realizes that we ARE facing a real threat here, the sooner we can get these classes safely implemented throughout all of the school districts in the country. Think of the lives that can save!
We have to get past this progressive-instilled victim complex into which we are forced to participate. We need to be precise, savage and do everything we can to protect those we love, while we rain Hell on those responsible for harm.
The sooner we step up and show these monsters that we are not afraid of them the safer we are going to be. We need to take the threat of terrorism VERY seriously. If we don’t, we could end up looking like England before long. It is a tragedy over there right now. If they were to allow their citizens to arm something tells us the terrorists would be a little less brazen.
