School District Arms Teachers with Baseball Bats to Take On Shooters

A Pennsylvania school district has opted to arm their teachers with miniature baseball bats as a "last resort" to combat a would-be attacker.

The Hill reports each teacher in the school district will be given a small 16 inch plastic bat and “receive training” on how to use it in a potential school shooting.

Millcreek School District Superintendent William Hall said the bats are primarily “symbolic” but an option in case a teacher needs to fight back during a school shooting.

In March, another Pennsylvania school district gave their teachers a bucket of rocks to throw at a potential shooter.
