Shoot­ing sur­vival classes for in­fants

Daily Express - - NEWS - By Frances Millar

AMER­I­CAN chil­dren are be­ing taught how to re­spond in the event of a mass shoot­ing at their school.

Pupils in­clud­ing those at kinder­garten age are shown how to bar­ri­cade class­room doors and per­form first-aid, and self-de­fence tech­niques.

In sim­u­la­tions they prac­tise how to dis­arm a gun­man and hold him on the ground.

This year there have been 22 shoot­ings at US schools in which some­one has been in­jured or killed.

The blood­shed has led Pin­na­cle Char­ter School in Thorn­ton, Colorado, to hire a self-de­fence con­sul­tancy.

“No one wants to be a vic­tim any­more,” said Joe Dee­don, owner of Tac*One Con­sult­ing.
