Fox News suggests that the way to rescue victims of a school shooter is to knock down the walls with a cannon.

So, water instead of bullets?

Courtesy of Think Progress:

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.

    ” between February 28 and April 19, 1993″
    “Newly appointed U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno approved recommendations by the FBI Hostage Rescue Team to mount an assault, after being told that conditions were deteriorating and that CHILDREN were being abused inside the compound.[48] Reno made the FBI’s case to President Bill Clinton. Recalling the April 19, 1985, The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord (CSAL) siege in Arkansas (which was ended without loss of life by a blockade without a deadline), President Clinton suggested similar tactics against the Branch Davidians. Reno countered that the FBI Hostage Rescue Team was tired of waiting; that the standoff was costing a million dollars per week; that the Branch Davidians could hold out longer than the CSAL; and that the chances of child sexual abuse and mass suicide were imminent. Clinton later recounted: “Finally, I told her that if she thought it was the right thing to do, she could go ahead.”[56] Over the next several months, Janet Reno’s reason for approving the final gas attack varied from her initial claim that the FBI Hostage Rescue Team had told her that Koresh was sexually abusing CHILDREN and beating babies (the FBI Hostage Rescue Team later denied evidence of child abuse during the standoff) to her claim that Linda Thompson and her one-woman “Unorganized Militia of the United States” was on the way to Waco to aid or attack Koresh.[57]

    Because the Branch Davidians were heavily armed, the FBI Hostage Rescue Team’s arms included .50 caliber (12.7 mm) rifles and armored Combat Engineering Vehicles (CEV). The assault took place on April 19, 1993. CEVs used explosives to puncture holes in the walls of buildings of the compound so they could pump in CS gas (“tear gas”) and try to flush out the Branch Davidians without harming them. The stated plan called for increasing amounts of gas to be pumped in over two days to increase pressure. Officially, no armed assault was to be made and loudspeakers were to be used to tell the Branch Davidians that there would be no armed assault and to ask them not to fire on the vehicles. FBI Hostage Rescue Team agents had been permitted to return any incoming fire, but no shots were fired by federal agents on April 19. When several Branch Davidians opened fire, the FBI Hostage Rescue Team’s response was to increase the amount of gas being used.[22]

    The FBI Hostage Rescue Team delivered 40-millimetre (1.6 in) CS grenade fire from M79 grenade launchers; very early in the morning, the FBI Hostage Rescue Team fired two military M651 rounds at the Branch Davidian construction site. Around mid-morning, the FBI Hostage Rescue Team began to run low on 40 mm Ferret CS rounds and asked Texas Ranger Captain David Byrnes for tear gas rounds; the tear gas rounds procured from Company “F” in Waco turned out to be unusable pyrotechnic rounds and were returned to the Company “F” office afterwards.[58] 40 mm munitions recovered by the Texas Rangers at Waco included dozens of plastic Ferret Model SGA-400 Liquid CS rounds, two metal M651E1 military pyrotechnic tear gas rounds, two metal NICO Pyrotechnik Sound & Flash grenades, and parachute illumination flares.[58][59] After more than six hours, no Branch Davidians had left the building, sheltering instead in a concrete block room within the building or using gas masks.[60] The FBI Hostage Rescue Team stated that CEVs were used to punch large holes in the building to provide exits for those inside.[citation needed]

    At around noon, three fires broke out almost simultaneously in different parts of the building and spread quickly. The government maintains the fires were deliberately started by the Branch Davidians.[22][61] Some Branch Davidian survivors maintain that the fires were accidentally or deliberately started by the assault.[62][63] Only nine people left the building during the fire.[22][61] The remaining Branch Davidians, including the CHILDREN, were either buried alive by rubble, suffocated by the effects of the fire, or shot. Many who suffocated from the fire were killed by smoke or carbon monoxide inhalation and other causes as fire engulfed the building.[61] According to the FBI, Steve Schneider—Koresh’s top aide—shot and killed Koresh and then killed himself[64] with the same gun.[citation needed] Footage of the blaze was broadcast live by television crews.”

    I believe the idea is that intelligent humans learn from their mistakes.

    In your case 7:44 I suggest you go back to kindy and find a teacher to explain to you how two wrongs don’t make a right. Seems you might have missed that lesson.
