Default Quinn signs bill requiring schools to hold shooting safety drills

In follow up to "The Idiot Speaks" post from yesterday (http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f126/idiot-speaks-93175/):


http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/clout/chi-quinn-signs-bill-requiring-schools-to-hold-shooting-safety-drills-20130701,0,7327689.story

Two key highlights:

- Colleges and universities would not be required to conduct the drills. Nice. Need to find the genius' that decided that wasn't important considering the NIU shooting. But I guess those students are no longer considered children, so fall outside the Democrats party line of "save the children."

- Quinn said his action on a measure that would allow citizens to carry guns in public is "imminent." Several lawmakers and public officials have said they expect the governor to rewrite the concealed carry bill to make it tougher in an effort to appeal to voters as he prepares to launch a re-election bid. Quinn is a strong supporter of stricter gun control laws.

But you knew the CCW bill wasn't going to pass anyways. We'll see what Her Majesty Ms. Madigan has up her sleeve. I think everyone's supposed to be back in Springfield on July 8th for a special session. <sigh>

I'm pretty sure I read last week a few politicians stating the CC is scheduled for over-ride vote on the 9th, tomorrow. Although it can be called any time they are in session.


I'm all for school shooting drills. I just know I wouldn't agree with the processes of said drills. Step #1 lock classroom door and barricade. Step #2 teacher huddles children into the safest corner and draws own weapon and takes aim on fatal funnel (door).

My wife is a school teacher , Nobody ever expects this to happen in their own home town but things happen and they should be prepared . Its no different than a tornado or fire drill , it should be done .
There are places out there that teach this stuff , They teach the teachers , teachers assistants and janitors how to prepare , put the kids in the safest spot and if the assailant does breach the entry way how to distract and manipulate to stop the threat even if armed . If I remember right they do those classes right here in IL , near Lincoln if my mind serves me right .

Yea, right. Have you ever been to school?.... I remember teachers that were too unstable to handle guns, and others that wouldn't touch a gun on a dare. I never had a lot of teachers that were like Bruce Willis. Maybe we should have gun racks in the classroom and on alarm all the kids could draw their weapons, hide behind the desks and wait to ambush the bad guy Bonnie and Clyde style.

I think it's great if it's a practical guide. Anything to avoid or reduce the loss of life, and buy LEOs additional response time to enter and clear the building.
If it's one of those that teach - defend yourself from the gunman with scissors - well, that's just great. I just found it odd that he exempted State funded colleges.

For sure! I remember my Ag. teacher organizing dove hunts after school for seniors. They would bring their shotguns to school on the school bus, along with a coat pocket full of shells. After school they would walk out to the corn field behind the football field for the shoot. Afterwards he would haul them home in his 49 Chevy sedan in time for them to help with the feeding and milking.

But that was a different time in a different world. Long, long ago!

Is that drill akin to what I remember in grade school during the sputnik-commie era that prompted kids to hide under their desks?
