Teachers Get Baseball Bats to Confront Shooters in Pennsylvania District

A school district in Erie, Pa., has supplied teachers and other school employees with miniature baseball bats to use as a last resort if confronted with an active shooter.

“We don’t want to be sitting ducks,” William Hall, superintendent of the Millcreek Township School District, said on Wednesday. “We’re not just going to go hide.”

The 18-inch wood bats are also meant to be “symbolic,” he said, to remind people that the old policy of simply turning off the lights, shutting the door and hiding, is not enough. Now, he says, one option is fighting back.

...They are no match, of course, for a gunman toting a semiautomatic weapon.

Even so, Mr. Hall said, “I think a bat could disarm a pistol with a nice swing.”

Actually it's -.050, when the teacher swung, missed and bopped a kid in the front row.
