Not The Onion: Pennsylvania School to Arm Kids With Buckets of Rocks as Defense Against School Shooters

Matt Coughlin, reporting for The Morning Call:

Officials in Schuylkill County are planning to teach students to throw rocks at school shooters.

The superintendent of Blue Mountain School District testified to a state committee in Harrisburg last week that each classroom in the school has been equipped with a five-gallon bucket of river stone, according to WNEP TV.

“If an armed intruder attempts to gain entrance to any of our classrooms, they will face a classroom full of students armed with rocks and they will be stoned,” Superintendent David Helsel said to the House Education Committee in Harrisburg.

This is not a fabricated story. This is real.

This, on the other hand, was The Simpsons.
