The old saying don't bring fists to a knife fight, don't bring a knife to a gun fight, don't bring a gun to an assault rifle fight, don't bring a assault rifle fight to a handgrenade fight. So where does it stop? Are we going to teach our children that might makes right? I remember being in foreign airports where security carried assault weapons and was appalled that people had to live that way. Now it is happening in our schools because of a few incidents? Living in fear is no way to live.

first of all snp has never been right about a single thing since the 6th grade. second of all they're air soft guns, not firearms. thirdly, they're objective is not firearm safety instruction.

I agree with snottynosepunk. Great "how not to" sequence for a gun safety class, unless of course the photographer was using a remote-operated camera.

It looks as those boys could use some Ranger training.In a tactical situation not good idea for so many to bunch up the enemy could spray and hit all in two seconds or a grenade. Training looks ineffective for real world. Speaking from urban combat knowledge.

First off its great that these guys got realistic training.

Now you should not have made it public knowlege as the first thing some punk will do is try to put this to the test or prep for it when he or she goes for it.

The media needs to stop making this type of thing public knowlege, all these kids see it and think "well this is how you handle it"

Knock it off!!!! You want to keep guns out of school them keep the kids who are not there to learn out of the schools. Knock this attitude these kids have about fighting and being tough, gangsta right out of them!

Bring back disapline to children, and things will change.
