Everyone's tripping about teachers packing heat, but what if they had a non-lethal method of taking out a school shooter? Like, a pistol loaded with pepper balls like the pigs have. A pepper ball grenade. A security system running throughout the entire school that uses intense noise/light strobes to incapacitate anyone inside the school. A non-lethal gas delivery system that knocks out everyone inside the school. Dogs that are trained to take out active shooters. Fuck it, attack parrots. You ever try shooting an angry bird that's attacking your face? There's so many possibilities
Non-lethal Active Shooter Solutions
Put as many surfaces between you and the shooter as you can.
How about lethal methods, like guns?
I agree, but in the meantime you could get parents to sign off on non lethal weapons way faster than teachers carrying guns, and possibly save some lives.
you got mouth and face protection for that
students are gonna have a fucking field day more PTSD inducing shit for normies
you can shoot those, frontal silloette also allows for getting collateral hits on vital organs, virtually useless unless the gunman is reloading/clearing jams
like dude, literally everything you mentioned was countered by militaries a long time ago.
If you start using barricade equipment during this, you're gonna see people with breaching equipment. Take those rose-colored sunglasses off, this is reality. The only way to really counter is to use lethal force from a distance after the happening started, or take away any motives for people to start a happening.
If someone is willing to kill another human being, they should have to face the same threat.
imagine if a shooter walks into a cafeteria and starts shooting, and like fifteen different people in there are armed with pepper ball pistols/rifles. You came to the wrong class room mofugga
Since active shooters go for easy victims, armed security prevents this in the first place
its senior prank day
principal screams "release the hounds"
imagine if he was wearing any form of closed off face protection....
conclusion: OP is a faggot and underage.
You know there’s a reason you have an a aesthetician on hand when you go into surgery right? And that kids being smaller than adults are more likely to OD?
pepper spray is really potent, a face mask is really not gonna do it unless they come in with a professional gas mask which is a risk. I'll bet if you hosed them with an OC spray fire extinguisher like prison guards have no mask would save you. And at any rate, that's just one idea. My point is there are non-lethal methods for dealing with active shooters that we can get into schools way faster than guns. The ultimate goal is obviously to arm teachers with lethal weapons.
If you're going by "things parents are most likely to accept", then I'd start by getting 3M security film on all windows bulletproof doors for classrooms, and increasing the amount of security guards.
Do you really expect college students to be armed with pepper ball shit? Like seriously there are more uses than just campus defense for those...
Military gas masks are really cheap nowadays, back to plebbit with your shit pepperball fetish.
ok, dart guns that are loaded with an incapacitating drug. Nikolas Cruz stopped firing five times to reload. Each reload takes 3-5 seconds. Plenty of time to draw a bead on him and shoot, especially when the alternative is huddling under a desk waiting to die.
Body armor. Baggy clothes. The time it takes for the sedative to take affect. Having to expose yourself to the shooter. Possibility of a noguns teacher missing. Face it, nothing beats a good 'ol hunk of lead flying really fast through the air.
Tranq darts that effective would be lethal with the wrong dosage or multiple darts and still give him time to kill the guy shooting the darts
Any fuck who knows his shit is going to ensure there's only one or two avenues of approach during a reload. Also have fun training people how to fire an inaccurate dart at a person 40-80 feet away in a hallway or something under stress.
You seem to forget the basic rules of armed combat here, the main one being maintaining distance between you and your enemy. A gunman doesn't have to get close, anyone trying to stop him/her will, distance is his greatest ally, it provides him with time to respond to threats that take time to get close to him/her.
Bean bag guns. even if they had body armor they're getting walloped with a 12 gauge bean bag. If they have armor plates shoot them in the legs, blow their knees apart. you people are quitters. you look at the problem and go HURR GUNZ well not everyone in America is comfortable with that. thats the reality of the situation
Part of being trained to use pepper/OC spray is getting sprayed, then running an obstacle course just to show the user that it is in fact possible to continue fighting after being sprayed. OC is bullshit and you should never depend on it.
plenty of time
Legs are a really difficult target to hit compared to the torso when firing bean bags user. These situations do not lend themselves to the fine motor skills required to shoot someone there.
these gas masks look badass. does anyone sell them yet on secondary market?
Just use a fucking gun and shoot the shooter lmao.
Spoken like a true noguns
Seriously man, it's not just a point and click adventure.
A non-lethal gas delivery system that knocks out everyone inside the school.
Worked for the Russians
How come the people in NZ didn't practice this photo? They all huddeled in a group on the floor playing possum when there was an emergency exit literally right there next to them. They didn't run, they didn't fight, they literally did nothing. They just laid down on the floor and did nothing.
Oh no, they're not comfortable, I guess they better just let the edgy terrorist murder them then, golly gee that's way better than being uncomfortable! Fuck entirely completely off retard, people should get comfortable with the idea of defending their lives and the lives of their friends, family, and peers.
what if he has kevlar? or a military flak jacket with the ceramic plates and all. obviously the solution is to engage the target with a katana, cutting any bullets fired at you in half then perfectly bifurcating the shooter down the middle
They're the Russian PMK-4 mask the SF guy is wearing one of the very early versions, and the normal infantryman is using the issued version. It's included in the Ratnik programme since 2017. The company that makes them hasn't made them commercially available and it seems they have no plans to do so. Unless you can find some guy in a Russian guard unit to 'lose' one of them. They use the 40mm GOST thread tho, so no NATO filters 4u.
Issued version supposedly has a microphone inside with a connector to the PTT.
ok, dart guns that are loaded with an incapacitating drug.
Great plan. The school shooter can't get any kills if every student dies from being gassed. Ban assualt braps!
Yeah geez how lazy
Question: other than Anders Breivik, have you ever seen an active shooter using any of the gear you mentioned?
170 ppl died
counter terrorists win
No, but if you start implementing these kind of bullshit things those people are going to adapt and take protective gear with them.
Just shoot em in the knee
just shoot the dang gun out of their hand
If you're already advocating for a teacher to have a 12 guage just to shoot less than lethal been bags at a dude, why not just go the whole way and let them pack a 9?
Another idea: reinforced classroom doors, and emergency exits from each room (slides? Ladders? Windows that open?)
As mentioned earlier, you're going to see improvised breaching equipment.
Seriously get a big can of pepper spray the kind that can be shot from a distance.
just give the teacher and all the students PCP capsules to chomp down on when SHTF. imagine trying to take down a classroom of zoomers hopped up on PCP, their reflexes insanely fast from playing with fidget spinners and shit
My highschool had big still double doors at the end of every hallway that could be closed and locked very quickly. That was in the 90's and the janitor and principle were the only people with the keys if they got closed by students.
Who's the real criminal? The terrorist murdering your friends by the dozen with a firearm, or you for owning a firearm?
*steel double doors.
True, but it’s pretty damn hard to get things like proper explosives in Burger Land, anyway. And those countermeasures WILL slow down an attacker. At the least it will reduce the potential death / injury count.
So did ours. Old Northern (Ohio) schools were built like fortresses.
Two words: Tannerite, Thermite.
lol, no school shooter is gonna come equipped with satchel charges this isn't counter strike
Imagine writing a 600 page manifesto, spending months preparing all of your gear and working on reloads and the like in order to come to school and be the ultimate edge lord, just to get dabbed on by a bunch of drugged up Zoombies.
thats really pointless though. we need to start getting people comfortable around cc'ing or forms of armed security (you know, like banks, sports stadiums, government buildings or rich people's homes have?)
the more we push for something less lethal, the further back we are stepping. Also . If somebody is trying to kill you, you kill them. Its that simple, debate the morality of it after the fact but when shit hits the fan you want to kill, not wound or incapacitate, nuke them from orbit its the only way to be sure
This is the most retarded listing of ideas I have ever seen; and I've been on this site since it used iFrames.
Still adds substantial weight and cost to the attacker, and gives LE extra time to get there. Especially if you heavily secure the perimeter and watch entrances.
The real reason people don't reinforce/secure schools is that they're big, it's expensive, and the threat is very low.
If they don’t want armed teachers why not armed security?
Getting shot with 15 pepper balls I imagine would have the same effect as getting shot with 1 pepper ball, the effect would just last longer.
Oh noes, I just now cant see that well
Better just start street sweeping operations.
literally every solution (I'm using that term very loosely) suggested here is pure retardation for so many painfully obvious reasons
Do you really think a school shooter is going to make their own shaped thermite charges in order to break down reinforced doors? They aren't the smartest bunch.
That sounds like a fire hazard
they aren't the smartest bunch
generalizing people as low-iq based on their actions.
and the award for the most nebulous and off-topic comment goes to... I actually feel kinda sad for you because such a complete inability to formulate a relevant and comprehensible argument coupled with the profound conviction (read: delusion) that it actually is despite nobody else understanding (which is often ironically interpreted as a lack of comprehension skills for literally everyone else), is often indicative of a serious intellectual deficit...
Jow Forums constantly debates the lethality of 45 vs 9 vs 40. You are never going to get us to agree to "non-lethal" options at stopping a shooter.
Even lethal options are not 100% effective and less-lethal options are far less effective at stopping someone. Especially when adrenaline is running. The single most effective way to stop someone from killing other people in these types of situations is to stop them permanently.
This should be a thing. Not because it would work (it wouldn't), but because it would be hilarious.
A lot of places have that, instead they'll close and lock to actually keep the fire from spreading.
hurr just shoot em in the legs
It’s actually pretty simple. There is a device called the burglar blaster which fills a room with pepper spray when the motion alarm is tripped. So the teachers could set the school alarm into lockdown mode and then the shooter would be blasted with pepper spray wherever he was. Bonus pts: Use CS gas
What are gas masks?
Who are all other students / teachers?
What is accidental activation?
How about 9mm?
Self defense is okay, but only as long as you’re using hopeless inferior means than your attacker.
Everyone with this mindset should die.
Shoot the face
ejector seat desks
You know those fire alarm systems? Fill them with tear gas. Then have switches in the hallways that all students can access just like fire alarms, so the response can be quick.
This is the way leftists think. You can't respond to a shooter unless your response is another shooter/shooters shooting him.
Who will carry them? Retarded people who thought teaching was a good career? Retarded security guard reject cops? The retarded students?
Literally the solution is to have a cop or two on every campus. We already have a group of people that we specifically pay to train and respond to these types of situations. Screen them too so we don't end up with people like that old fart who just sat there in coward county.
Since when did Special Forces start shooting up schools? And that's why it's just pepper spray and not Sarin.
yfw little timmy will trigger the teargas alarms when the whole school is coming in from recess because chad thundercock fucked his mom
This is how hostage situations should be done desu. 75% is much better than 0% but we can't deal with this shit properly because "muh human rights" and "think of the children"
what the fuck is a "non-lethal active shooter"?
is he just shooting to wound?
Stick with the prod
A non-lethal takedown is always the most silent takedown
It's funny because if you'd actually read the OP you wouldn't look the delusional one.
A non-lethal solution to an active shooter is not a fucking solution. I'm all for talking and diplomacy when they're not actively murdering people at the moment, because successful negotiations mean the hostages live, the bad guy lives and can be properly tried and learned from, and the cops live. Nobody leaving with superfluous holes is ideal. But we do not live in an ideal world. When someone is actively trying to kill you or someone else, the best solution is the one that fucking stops them the most frequently with the least possible risk to "good guys" and victims, and that solution is bullets, as many as you can put into him. Having the heart and lungs perforated stops people a lot more frequently than being gently electrocuted or getting pepper sprayed. Best end to an incident a SWAT team can have is nobody leaving in a body bag or on a stretcher, bad guy captured for trial and information. The next best day they can have is the shooter leaving in a body bag or on a stretcher, and no more than some bruising for cops and hostages. The second worst day they can have is the shooter an heroing and leaving in a body bag along with dozens of victims, and many times that number in ambulances, but at least he didn't get everyone, all because some fucktard decided that pepper spray or nondescript knockout gas was an acceptable solution to a retarded psychopath rampaging through the halls with a semiauto rifle. The worst day of course being they lose team members as well.
Ask any of the dead if they'd like to be empty handed, or have anything, a pepper ball gun, bean bags, a hard fucking rock, anything to defend themselves with.
beat the shooter with gympie gympie.
you will ruin anyone's day.
OP is obviously a child
Don’t kid yourself, some people are such soft cock pacifists they’d rather die than hit someone
Yikes. This is awkward. Sorry bud, try again next time
because, unlike guns, that shit requires extensive training and practice to apply properly. you cant just aim center of mass and magdump with a pepperball gun.
lol and lmao, lawsuits out the ass from parents because their kids got gassed.
knock out gas
Back back with plate armor as shield / plate carrier.
Semi auto pellet gun.
They always an hero.
The true way to seek punishment is let them live till they die of natural causes, full of painful holes in the eyes and body.
As they are pretty much rodents.
A knife for cqc and or throwing last ditch.
A non-lethal gas delivery system that knocks out everyone inside the school.
Ask Spetsnaz how that worked out for them
