So, water instead of bullets?

Forget about a “good guy with a gun.” Fox News wants that guy armed with a cannon.
On Thursday, Fox News proposed a unique way to reduce fatalities at schools targeted by mass shooters.
In “School shootings: This cannon fires unbelievable ammo to blast through walls and help rescue victims,” Fox News “defense specialist” Allison Barrie writes about a cannon called the “BCB Wall Breaker” that fires water cooler tanks at high velocities. Barrie suggests the cannon could help students escape mass shootings by blasting down walls.
This is from the Fox News article:
“Imagine students barricaded in classrooms with no way to escape. The shooter is roaming the hallways. The only exit is the door to the hallway. If students tried to escape via the hallway, they could be greatly at risk.
Outside the school building, police could roll up these water cannons and quickly punch holes in the walls of every classroom providing large escape holes.
If students have been wounded, first responders can use the hole to accelerate access to medical care.
In both these instances, escape and medical care for wounded, seconds are vital and can mean the difference between life and death.
The cannon can also be useful for perpetrator apprehension. An active shooter will expect law enforcement to intervene through doors and windows. With this cannon, law enforcement can fire the cannon at any wall to create their own “door.”
So to “save” children huddled under their desks to escape a school shooter these idiots suggest blasting down the walls, spraying water, shattered wood, plaster, and glass all over the terrified pupils.
You know I was thinking that there was probably not an idea dumber than arming teachers in the school, but I now see that I was mistaken.
