Michigan College Distributes Unique Weapon To Defend Against Active Shooters

“Beware of flying pucks” is a message any fan of hockey understands loud and clear. The darn things hurt when they hit a person. In fact, when sent into the air during games the stout rubber disks have been known to injure fans which is why rinks are surrounded by plexiglass and nets.

Knowing this reality is a part of life in the great white north, and one Michigan college is determined to put hockey pucks to use in a productive way.

Hockey pucks: They’re small and heavy and — one Michigan college thinks — may be the perfect weapon against an active shooter on campus.

Oakland University, a public school in Rochester Hills, near Detroit, is distributing thousands of 94-cent hockey pucks for just that reason.

The distribution, which began earlier this month, stemmed from a March faculty active-shooter training session, which followed February’s shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that left 17 dead.

A participant at the training asked Oakland University Police Chief Mark Gordon what items people could use to defend themselves on the campus, which has a no-weapons policy, the Detroit Free Press reports.

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

Yeah, that’s it. No need for concealed carry to deter mass shootings. Concealed hockey pucks may well do the trick.

Of course, deadly velocity is best achieved with a slap shot off of a stick, but that’s beside the point. The faculty at Oakland University is advocating this method of self-defense without a weapon. Just throw a puck in that direction. And just for good measure, freeze the thing before heading out. That’s what the pros do.

Good thing the modern ones are made of rubber. Originally, pucks were frozen and solidified excrement.

  1. How many pucks are they being given?

    IF it’s more than ten, then it’s ILLEGAL!

    Can a hockey puck be thrown at the same velocity as the very HOT piece of lead coming towards the shooter?

    IF, and this is TRUE 100% of the school shootings, the students are too busy ducking incoming rounds to throw even a book to try to distract the shooters!

    The STUDENTS and the TEACHERS HAVE THE RIGHT to carry DEFENSIVE WEAPONS.

    The sooner the PARENTS DEMAND Teachers and STUDENTS be TRAINED to CARRY those DEFENSIVE WEAPONS!

    The VICTIMS are ALWAYS the ‘first responder!

    Everybody else shows up too late to do much beyond filling out forms and submitting reports.

  2. Insanity! If I had a child in that school, I would withdraw him immediately. It is clear they have a very tenuous grip on reality. How effective would that have been against the U of T shooter? Anyone able to throw a hockey puck 100 yards? Didn’t think so.

  3. WOW! I thought the morons on the left couldn’t get any dumber, but once again they have proven me wrong!! I guess if a person was at all accurate with a puck they might just hit someone with a gun, but it would only piss them off and make them shoot more!!

    I guess you could get lucky and nail them in the head and knock them out–but what are the odds on that happening????

    They going to give them a hockey stick to launch that puck or are they just going to free hand it like a baseball?

    LOTS OF LUCK FOLKS, I HOPE YOU NEVER HAVE TO FIND OUT HOW A PUCK WILL FAIR WITH A BULLET!!!
