Someone Needs To Tell This University You Don’t Bring A HOCKEY PUCK To A Gun Fight

Ashley (Kimber)

Apparently, no one told the “powers that be” at Oakland University in Michigan that you don’t bring a knife to a gun fight…

and you DEFINITELY don’t bring a hockey puck.

The university has distributed 800 pucks to faculty and staff, plans on “arming” an additional 1,700 students with hockey pucks to throw at potential gunmen.

Yes. Really.

According to [OU Police Chief Mark] Gordon, to fight effectively, faculty and students need to be prepared to throw objects that are heavy and will cause a distraction.

Hockey pucks provide the ability to be carried in briefcases or backpacks, are not considered a weapon, and will meet the goal of distracting the shooter, according to Gordon.

You know what ELSE can be “carried in briefcases or backpacks” but might ACTUALLY stop a shooter?


Oakland University Police Chief Mark Gordon very clearly suffered a traumatic brain injury from it…
