HALFWAY, Ore. (CBS Seattle/AP) — Teachers were shocked and caught off guard when an Oregon school held a school shooting drill.
The Oregonian reports Pine Eagle Charter School in Halfway held the drill last Friday as children were home for an in-service day. Two masked “gunmen” burst into a meeting room holding 15 teachers firing blanks. Teachers only realized it wasn’t a real shooting when none of them were bleeding.

In Beslan, the dead children (hundreds) WERE piled up.
Terrorists look for soft targets and too many liberals want our schools to remain so.
If they do that and then have another unannounced drill where actors dressed as masked gunmen burst in shooting blanks, I suspect they'll have a couple dead actors on their hands.
Too bad none of the teachers had a heart attack and dropped dead on the spot, that would have been some good information for the sociopaths that thought this was a good idea.
I guess the notion of “intentional infliction of emotional distress” has gone the way of “fighting words” in our court system.
Too bad one of the teachers didn’t have a gun. She would have been in her rights to defend herself. So that would teach the school not to hold false drills without telling anyone!!
Yes, killing an agressor is justified. Too bad for the agressor that it was only a fake drill. They won’t make that mistake again!
It might be a bad idea to do this around someone well trained in unarmed combat, in addition to the general heart attack and stress risk.
Imagine if they tried that in Texas.
Like at the Luby’s in Killeen?
Sheep are completely helpless from predators but it doesn’t protect them.
1) The next seven-year-old who points his finger at another kid on the playground and goes “bang!”
2) These guys who kicked in the door.
Who will get more punishment and be led to believe that they are a terrible person.
Absolutely! Morons. Had exactly that happen in my old outfit when some knucklehead supervisor pulled the same stunt one night, in an attempt to evaluate facility guard readiness. Got himself shot by a watch stander in the process.
If that was my high school, the m*********ers would end up with a chair, garbage can, 2 LCD projectors, and 4 dictionaries thrown at them and then end up stabbed with a pen.
That’s not something to hold a drill about.
That kind of stupidity is a good way to get someone very dead.
Now half of the teaching staff need time off work for counseling due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
That’s why they do it in a school. It would be dangerous if they were not in a gun free zone. They probably don’t have the courage to find out the hard way how many TX teachers carry.
My wife was reading the “growing and changing” text book and was completely shocked. All there in gory details for the 5th graders to read and learn. You name it, everything.
Plus they stick the girls in with the boys.
The kids have been particularly difficult lately and during this sex ed “training.” It is obvious that the kids are having difficulty with it.
My wife is a teacher's aid.
They are very lucky to have not been shot by a CHL who was carrying in spite of the gun free zone law!!
You are so right.
Not only are the schools soft targets, schools offer ‘high value’ targets.
Unfortunately I believe this will be where the next attack occurs.
Can't get anything past these smart teechurs. How wonderful they are in charge of our kids for such long hours.
Reminds me of my Kof C initiation, a million years ago. No guns then in evidence, of course.
Everyone involved in planning this idiocy should be fired and their teaching certificates, if they had any, should be revoked for life. Also, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent for allowing weapons into the school. “Zero tolerance” works both ways.
I can’t imagine what kinds of simple minds would concoct such an asinine plan.
Someone needs to be fired.
What were they training for, an assault on a intruder or an assault on the public?
Wow, lucky none of the teachers shot them.
That might take a year or two off one’s life.
22 years ago. Seriously?
22 years ago. Seriously?
“In response to the massacre, the Texas Legislature in 1995 passed a shall-issue gun law, which requires that all qualifying applicants be issued a Concealed Handgun License (the state’s required permit to carry concealed weapons), removing the personal discretion of the issuing authority to deny such licenses”
Signed by Governor George Bush.
That school district is lucky none of those teachers had a heart attack.
Thats not something to hold a drill about.
LOL.. Right on.... I'm a retired HS teacher, and for years I've told my kids if we had an intruder... everyone to the back of the room.... I would get the two biggest baddest thugs to break a desk, so if that SOB came in the classroom he would get a chrome desk leg in the eye.
I always got more than enough volunteers
Many people need to be fired. The person in charge of the drill and the administration that allowed them into the school for the drill. The indoctrination of the teachers and students continues.
What idiots...and they are running our schools???
Teachers Shocked, Frightened After School Holds Unplanned Shooting Drill
I'm sure the drill was well planned, it was just unannounced.
Halfway looks like a tiny little town....I had their webcam up on my puter for a long time...intend to visit there this year....fascinating area....my hubby hunts out of Imnaha, and Halfway is south of there....
How did they know that no teacher would try to pull a pair of scissors on them?
Speaking of Beslan...
