Michigan College is “Arming” Students Against Mass Shooters…With Hockey Pucks

Would-be mass shooters beware: Faculty and students at Oakland University in Michigan are going to be ready to fight back, should you target their school.

University police are reportedly training faculty at the college to fight gunmen in their classrooms with an unlikely weapon: hockey pucks.

Who came up with this idea?

Detroit Free Press explains:

The idea of using the quirky self-defense tool grew out of a training session Police Chief Mark Gordon led in March for faculty members on what they should do if a gunman enters their classroom.

A participant asked what people could bring to campus to be better prepared in case they need to fight back. The university has a no-weapons policy.

Gordon’s advice? Be ready to throw something — anything — that could distract a shooter, even a hockey puck, as a last resort if fleeing or hiding aren’t an option.

“It was just kind of a spur-of-the-moment idea that seemed to have some merit to it and it kind of caught on,” Gordon said.

Gordon said he once got hit in the head with a puck, and the painful event spawned the idea that the hard disks could be used for self-defense.

There isn’t any research to support the use of hockey pucks in an active shooter situation, Gordon admits. Still, they can serve as a defensive tool, like throwing a stapler, a laptop, “or anything that has weight” and could hurt and distract a shooter so he or she could be disarmed, he said:

“Anything that you can throw that’s heavy and will cause damage, cause injury is the bottom line of what you’re trying to do. (A hockey puck) was just a thing that was suggested that could possibly work, especially when you have 20 or 30 people in a classroom and they all throw hockey pucks at the same time, it would be quite the distraction.”

Faculty and students will be taught to flee first, if possible. If that isn’t an option, it is time to start flinging the pucks.

The university’s faculty union, the American Association of University Professors, is organizing the training and has distributed hockey pucks to its members and to students, reports Click on Detroit.

“We believe that once faculty have been trained in what to do in an active shooter situation, they will be able to share that information with students to provide a more secure learning environment,”says AAUP President Tom Discenna.

Hockey pucks can be carried in briefcases or backpacks and are “not considered a weapon”. They will meet the goal of distracting the shooter, according to Gordon.

In Michigan, open carry is legal (there is no law that prohibits it), and Concealed Pistol Licenses (CPLs) are relatively easy to obtain. However, state laws limit the premises on which a person may carry open or concealed. Michigan’s gun laws are confusing, and colleges can create their own rules. As for Oakland University, it appears students and faculty are left with hockey pucks for self-defense…for now.

  1. Ohhhh yeah, that’s a GREAT fucking idea.
    Hockey Puck stands down an AR….
    My GOD are people really that SDUPID!!!!????

  2. reper sleepr says:

    SOUNDS LIKE A BUNCH OF MUDDER PUCKERS!

  3. Red Hawk says:

    because this is what the state thinks of your right to life

    pretty fcken clear isnt it?

    • Anonymous says:

      Red Hawk, you have good point.
      Leftist NEED-WANT-DESIRE mass casualties so they have excuse to TAKE/STEAL your freedom, choices, money, guns.

      “The Leftist want to steal your money and take your guns and freedom.” That is the entire leftist ideology.
      – Steal your money
      – Give your money to a bum, because of his/her skin pigment.
      – Take away all of your choices and freedoms. Dictate your every action through laws, rules, made up bs.
      – Then take your guns so you have no ability to fight back.

      The Leftist want Canon Fodder.

  4. Kevin2 says:

    This is a start. For decades the “strategy” was to run, hide or submit. At least the thought of fight has entered the dialog.

  5. harry323 says:

    They might be better off with the hockey STICK. A major portion of college students aren’t 21 yet, so they’re screwed anyway.

  6. Red Leader says:

    Bringing a Hockey Puck to a gunfight….Hmmmm…What could possibly go wrong?

  7. reper sleepr says:

    And if you read this article and understand their reasoning you’ll then understand just how stupid people can really be. Mind blowing for sure. I’m so glad that my children have not married and had children. I’ve told them many times, “do not have children on my account”. The hour has grown very long.

    • Paul says:

      Yes indeed. You cannot make this up. This is what over educated, intellectual, liberal folks who have no clue about human nature and human history, think that this somehow is logical!!!!

      This is due to years of following the pied piper of propoganda, and the inability for these lunatics to think rationally and logically.

  8. Bill McGill says:

    So what if you’re on the swim team? Throw your speedo?

  9. k9base says:

    !!!! PULL>>>>>>boom boom boom..

  10. TomCat says:

    Common sense isn’t common anymore

  11. aljamo says:

    Hockey pucks are kind of heavy, I wouldn’t want to get hit by one thrown at me. I have one that I paid $8 for in 1991 up in Pittsburgh at a game with Montreal. Nailing someone with a direct hit would do some damage.

  12. deliberate dumbing down dot com

    Charlotte Iserbyt was interviewed on trad cat knight dot com Radio

    The Soviet Union and the USA worked together to create the textbooks our students read.

    Our kids are under attack by Communism.

    Maybe a few shooters are what they need to wake the puk up.

  13. desertspeaks says:

    ok you college students who are supposed to be adults.. we know you can’t throw but here are some hockey pucks to spastically throw at the bad guy..
    Do we get participation trophies? um no snowflake!

  14. Sgt. Dale says:

    If I was a bad guy and you Pucked me I would get more pissed and Puck you!!!

    Sgt.

  15. Bilge Pump McCoy says:

    It’s no coincidence that puck rhymes with Cuck.

  16. Jimbo says:

    Simply pass out pin on buttons to everyone that reads –> [ No Guns Allowed ] problem solved!
    ( or maybe not )

  17. Anonymous says:

    More mental illness coming from academia.

  18. Anonymous says:

    surprised the academic cultural marxists aren’t using dildos instead.

  19. tuesdayissoylentgreen day says:

    Pathetic, Majority of Americans have no fight in them. Wait until the Russians and Chinese get here….

  20. Jim on Jerz says:

    That’s the kind of suggestion that gets people killed.
    The idea that law enforcement even made the statement shows how far law enforcement has fallen. Quality suggestion.
    As for all those who wander around campus with a puck in th it pocket…anyone? No?
    Didn’t think so…
    Here’s a better idea, create a ban that says no one is allowed to ever have a gun on school grounds! Then you’ll all be protected, equally and fairly. Government to the rescue!
    Oh wait…that doesn’t work, does it?
    Carry. Shoot back. Don’t wait for the cavalry. Be gone before they arrive.

  21. Maranatha says:

    Meanwhile the Kentucky legislature is considering both students and teachers to have open and concealed carry of firearms.

  22. Marcus says:

    And… what’s to prevent a potential active shooters from utilizing hockey equipment amidst the spree, such as full-face masks and pads?

  23. Maranatha says:

    Open carry is perfectly fine in Kentucky even in some city buildings but restricted on school campuses. But now that might get lifted.

    Similarly edged weapons like hunting knives are a non-issue in Kentucky, although Indiana even allows them to be concealed.

    The point is that Kentuckians are far better off than many of you. It’s a start.

  24. Anonymous says:

    The individuals recommending hocky pucks for self defense are corrupt and incompetent.

  25. Beaumont says:

    You could “arm” the students with hockey pucks, or you could arm the students with “hockey pucks”.

  26. Bear Creek Armory has lowered the price of 24″ heavy barrel uppers in 224 Valkyrie caliber to about $220, with bolt & handle.

    That is pretty much a record for a quality AR15 upper. 224 Valkyrie is a new caliber created by Federal.

    With a good lower it works better than a hockey puck, unless you’re in California.

    If you’re in West Oakland where the cops have announced “they don’t do burglaries”, it’s a choice between nail guns, hockey pucks, and black market firearms.

  27. Anonymous says:

    Therefore, hockey pucks are weapons and, as such, would be prohibited by the liberal powers-that-be. The liberal (or any) powers-that-be can therefore be said to be in league with (and therefore are) the people’s enemy.
