Won't be long before there will be a shortage of canning supplies. The big companies just won't be able to keep up with demand. Hoarding will occur. May take years to work it out. Who knows where this will end up.
If the current trends keep up a can of tuna will cost less than a round of 22LR ammo.

Re: New Weapon Against School Intruders

Wow! I never thought there would be so much activity on this topic.

After reading some of the responses I thought of another advantage of this unique method of self defense.

In the event that students were taken hostage, there would be plenty of food for them to eat. :mrgreen:

New Weapon Against School Intruders

Principal Seeks Food Cans to Defend against School Intruders :thumbs2:

An eastern Alabama school principal is asking students to bring cans of food such as corn and peas as a way of fighting off a school intruder.

W.F. Burns Middle School Principal Priscella Holley said in a Friday letter to parents that a can could stun an intruder "or even knock him out" until police arrive.

Holley wrote that the cans would empower students if an intruder enters their classroom at the school in Valley, Alabama.

Chambers County Schools Superintendent Kelli Hodge told The Associated Press the letter was sent after school employees received training from Auburn University's public safety department.

Hodge says throwing cans or other items would be a last resort for students unable to evacuate. She says the cans would be stored in classrooms and students wouldn't be carrying them around school.
