SCHOOL DEFENSE TRAINING - FIREARMS TRAINING AND SMALL UNIT TACTICS FOR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS
December 17, 2012 Pulse O2DA Firearms Training, Inc. (Pulse O2DA), announced today a new training course for public and private schools called “School Defense Training” which delivers firearms training and small unit tactics for school administrators and teachers.
Mike Smock, co-founder of Pulse O2DA said: “This new training program is in direct response to the Sandy Hook school massacre. Nothing is more precious than a child. Yet in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, the pundits and politicians are completely ignoring or denigrating the one solution that will prevent this from happening again; allowing parents, administrators and teachers the opportunity to arm themselves, and with the proper training, eliminate this kind of threat before the first responders arrive.”
Smock went on to criticize the media coverage: “Despite what all of the Ph.D’s, talking heads, men in suits and politicians have been saying, there is no amount of psychological profiling that can guarantee this won’t happen again. Door buzzers, metal detectors and CCTV will not prevent this from happening again. SWAT, FBI, State Police, local cops will not prevent this from happening again. And a solitary armed security guard in a school of 200 students with 15 classrooms, a gym, an auditorium and offices will not prevent this from happening again. Over the past two days we have listened to too many so-called security experts, psychologists and pundits claim that there is no easy solution. We disagree. There is one simple solution - allowing teachers and administrators to carry a weapon and defend themselves and their students.”
The FBI echoes these sentiments. The FBI acknowledges that traditional law enforcement cannot protect schools and their employees from violent threats: “Research has shown that law enforcement may not arrive in time. As a result, employees have to become stakeholders in their own safety and security”.
Ron Danielowski, co-founder of Pulse O2DA and Chief Instructor described the new training program this way: “Pulse O2DA will teach your administrators, teachers and parents to defend the lives of the little ones. We start by teaching you how to eliminate the threat before the authorities arrive. We train you on exactly what to do from identifying the threat and the firing of the first shot, to the arrival of the first responders. You will learn three weapons systems - handgun, shotgun, and rifle, and the small unit tactics necessary to operate as a cohesive fighting unit. Our instructors all come from significant military and law enforcement backgrounds. The training you receive from us will be equal to, and in many cases better than the training provided to your local law-enforcement SWAT teams. How can we say this? Because we have trained SWAT teams, elite military units and high-threat private security operators.”
