Students in one Pennsylvania school district are armed and ready to take down a school shooter.

But they don’t have guns, Blue Mountain School District Superintendent David Helsel told state lawmakers. Instead, students at the district in Schuylkill County are equipped with five-gallon buckets of river stones that are hidden in the closet of each classroom, according to WNEP.

Teachers in the district have been taught how to evacuate in the event of a school shooting, Helsel said, but the rock plan serves as a backup.

“At one time I just had the idea of river stone, they’re the right size for hands, you can throw them very hard, ” he told WNEP, “and they will create or cause pain, which can distract.”
Never miss a local story.

If I were they I would feel a whole lot safer if the plan included sling shots and water balloons.
