Champion, Ohio: School/Police Say Students Need to Hear Gunfire in School for ….”Drills”

“The sounds of gunfire will ring through the halls of two Champion school buildings this afternoon.”

Ah, the ringing sound of gunfire! Sort of like caroling except… chillingly fatalistic and completely at odds with the fact that school shootings, though horrific, remain exceedingly rare. Kids are safer than ever before, and schools are just about the safest environments for them.

Ah, but how to deal with a dangerous idea intruding into a school building—the idea that students are in constant danger from madmen, but twice-a-year training with live, loud, fake ammo will keep them safe?
