Sunday, August 17, 2008 mean armed self-defense WORKS?!

Oh, now this was too good not to bring to the front page...
Via DoubleTapper, in the comments to the post on arming the teachers (this story was from January -- ed.):

Two terrorists were killed by armed civilians less than an hour ago after they infiltrated a high school in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, south of Jerusalem.

The terrorists, armed with knives and possibly with a pistol, infiltrated the kibbutz and snuck into a the Makor Haim High School.

The attack took place in the library when the two terrorists, dressed in black, burst into the room and ordered everyone to raise their hands and stand against the wall. The terrorists stabbed two students before their counselors were able to draw their personal handguns and kill the terrorists on the spot.

Huh. You mean to tell me those terrorists weren't able to disarm the counselors? That more or less because of those counselors being armed, the death toll could be counted on one hand with fingers left over? Why, it's almost as if the Texas educators didn't have the slightest idea as to what they were talking about! As if they were talking straight out of their fourth points of contact! You think?! Wow. My worldview has just been shattered! Shattered, I tell you!
Speaking of the Texas educators, Mattexian had this great observation in the comments to that same post:
...I guess the president of the teachers' union would know about bad ideas in education, since they've been behind most of them in the last century!
A-yep, that's pretty much the long and short of it. And I bet the irony of her making such a statement completely escaped the journalists at the Chron, not to mention a fair chunk of their readership.
