WEB Notes: “Active shooter” drills are all about keeping you and your family in a constant state of fear. Do you know how rare a school shooting is? If they want these kids to get used to the sound of a firearm, how about a firearms class. Fear and hype and how many are going to be sucked into this thinking it is a good thing?
At Bethel Park High School on Thursday, an active shooter drill is scheduled to get underway during an extended third period class.
This drill will include the sound of gunfire, but blanks will be fired, not real bullets. School Police and Bethel Park Police will conduct the exercise.
Nanette Adams has a son who just this year enrolled in the High School. She and some other parents contacted KDKA-TV News saying they were concerned about the drill; more specifically, the fact that blanks were bring used.
