A New Use for Used Textbooks

An Oklahoma candidate for state superintendent of education has proposed putting a thick used textbook under every desk to use in self-defense in case a shooter comes into the classroom. He even created a video where he tests the idea by shooting textbooks with various kinds of guns.

Watch the whole video. It's worth it. This guy might soon be in charge of the education system for the whole state. I was amazed at how casual this whole group of people is with the guns. The only thing they did right was to keep the kids way in the back (though at the end he asks the kids if they want to shoot any of the textbooks).
