Teachers in one Pennsylvania school district are getting baseball bats to help them protect against attackers. Teachers in Millcreek Township School District near Erie aren't expected to confront gunmen with the 16-inch bats. However, they could be used as a last resort if they had to fight an attacker. The 600 bats the district ordered for its staff cost under two-thousand-dollars.
Not to be outdone, in March, Blue Mountain School District in Schuylkill County dished details of its safety plan, which includes equipping each classroom with a five-gallon bucket of rocks to "stone" a school shooter.
