    I just read a News clip on Info-War (one of my least favorite places to get news) that a School District in Missouri, in compliance with a recently passed Statute, is REQUIRING Teachers to be SHOT with Pellets, from a Pellet Gun, during this REQUIRED Active Shooter Drill in their Schools. Now I don't know how others would feel about this, but IF ANYONE Shot ME with a Pellet Gun, ANYWHERE, I would have the ARRESTED for "Assault with a Deadly Weapon" on the spot, PERIOD... and also SUE whoever was conducting the Excursive, for $1MIllionUS for being IDIOTICALLY Stupid, and a MOROOON. (Bugs Bunny Definition) I mean Really.. What Lunatic thought this would be a GOOD IDEA?

    How in the world could anyone rationalize this as an even remotely good idea?

    Without an actual cite of the law, this is all just internet dribble.

    But we're all up in arms about it! This may be an imaginary travesty but it's a travesty nonetheless!

    Here is the law: Section 170-315 Active shooter and intruder response tr

    Quite the school system we have in play here!! They look like 14-18yo kids .. At that age we were not subjected to this crap.
    too much tv. games, not going out and playing like we used too do. they play what they watch on every channel ..

    I could see using paint balls if they were actively being trained, but to stand there and take a lead pellet? I wouldn't. To what point? A pellet isn't like taking a bullet. No bullet shock etc. But we had to experience pepper spray and stun guns in order to carry them. This is common for many departments and correctional institutes. However if it were me I'd draw my .45, and muzzle down, I'd tell the guy with the pellet gun, okay you shoot first...

    There is no way in #$!! I would allow someone to shoot me with a pellet gun. Being from MO Im proud to say my daughter has never stepped foot inside a school. If we had a active shooter she knows where all the guns are and how to use them ;)

    No where in the law does it say teachers have to be shot. Unless I missed something. I'm not a lawyer nor did I play one on TV, I've never even stayed in a Holiday Exspress, but the the way I read the law it says the training MAY be done. So in my mind that says it's not mandatory. The legal advice you have been given here is worth less than you paid for it :)

    REQUIRING Teachers to be SHOT with Pellets, from a Pellet Gun

    It was in the Original Article, that was posted.... The people who are conducting the Training in THAT School District decided that the Teachers would be issued Protective Glasses, and the Make Believe Bad Guys would be armed with Pellet Guns. the teachers would then be subjected to Pellet Strikes during the exercise, and they were LOUDLY Complaining about it. To the point of consulting their County District Attorney, about the legality of forcing the Teachers to be Assaulted, while doing this MANDATORY Training, REQUIRED by their District, to comply with the State Statute. It isn't the State that is making this Mandatory, it is their Employer, the School District. It isn't the State that is REQUIRING them to be Assaulted, it is their Employer, the School District, and the folks they have Hired, to do the Training. This is just beauocracy gone CRAZY, and some REALLY STUPID People, designing an Active Shooter Exercise, that is Patently Illegal, and a Criminal Offense, by ANY Stretch of the Imagination. The Moroooon (Bugs bunny Definition) who thought this was a Good Idea, needs to find a Job as a Burger Flipper, or Dog Catcher, somewhere where he has NO Authority, to decide ANYTHING, Ever Again.... .....

    I was responding to Ozarks post, BT. Look above. I had thought that I had misread your post when I saw his response. Personally I think it's a damned stupid Idea. They did that in Albuquerque I think it was, and the parents went nuts.

    I was just responding to the law itself not to BP's post. If I were a teacher and they told me I'd tell them to pack sand!!!!!!!!!!

    I was clarifying what the actual issue was, and who was the Responsible Party,for this foolishness.... No problem with either of you Guys at all....

    as I stated above... If I was presented with this DEAL, at my Employment, I would tell my employer that if ANYONE Shot ME, with ANYTHING, I would file Criminal Complaints against the Individual who did the shooting, His Employer, and My Employer that Hired Them. Then there would be a Civil Suit under Labor Statutes in my State, and UnFair Employment Practices, as well as an OSHA Complaint, and that is just off the top of my head.... I am sure there are many more Statutes that would apply. Looks to this Child, like it would be a Million Dollar PLUS PayDay for my Schister LawDog and I.....

    If a plastic knife in a kid's lunch box for spreading peanut butter, or a GI. Joe action figure with a toy gun can get a kid thrown out of school, then the pellet guns should get these idiots arrested.

    Pellet guns should not be shot at others unless you intend to hurt or harm that person/animal. Even my children know that you don't shoot at people just for fun.

    They were Airsoft guns firing small plastic pellets. All teachers were given the opportunity to opt out or participate. After it got going, a couple of teachers became uncomfortable and left the building, later complaining about the realism of the drill.
