Imagine your child is in class at school in Denver County. Suddenly, there is a clamor in the hall, and people are running in confusion. Shots ring out, and a shooter runs into the room, a gun pointed at the students. Which would be a better scenario?
1. The teacher pulls out a concealed weapon and shoots the intruder, saving lives.
2. Children pull canned goods out of their backpacks and hurl them at the shooter.
That last suggestion isn't a joke, unfortunately. In fact, it is part of a game plan for shooter response training in one out-of-state school. This kind of thing isn't new; we've discussed just how ridiculous gun opponents can be in Douglas, Adams, and Jefferson County. In one situation, a boy was suspended from school because he pointed a pop tart chewed into the shape of a gun at another student. But, this latest story goes to show just how far gun opponents will go to promote their agenda.
School Says Children Should “Carry Canned Goods” for Protection
School officials in one out-of-state school sent letters to parents, urging them to have their children bring canned goods to school in order to “attack would-be intruders.” The letter continues:
“We realize at first this may seem odd; however, it is a practice that would catch an intruder off-guard. The canned food item could stun the intruder or even knock him out until the police arrive. The canned food item will give the students a sense of empowerment to protect themselves and will make them feel secure in case an intruder enters the classroom.”

We Fight for Your Gun Rights: We Want to Protect Our Children
Another way to protect our children which gun rights opponents fail to recognize, is to arm willing teachers with concealed carry weapons in Arapahoe, El Paso, and Boulder County schools. What shooter would attack a school where every adult was armed and ready to defend the school? But, the general public has a fear of guns, and wants to take them away from the people who should own them. Here at the O'Malley Law Office, we have a passion for protecting 5th amendment rights. If your concealed carry permit has been denied, or your gun rights are being infringed in any way during a criminal investigation, contact one of our passionate criminal defense lawyers for a free consultation.
