By the standards of this Republican yahoo from Oklahoma, textbooks would be chosen, not for their content, but for the number of pages, since the thicker the book, the better it would act to thwart a bullet from a gunman in a classroom attack.

A candidate for state superintendent of schools said Thursday he wants thick used textbooks placed under every student's desk so they can use them for self-defense during school shootings.

"People might think it's kind of weird, crazy," said Republican Bill Crozier of Union City, Oklahoma, a teacher and former Air Force security officer. "It is a practical thing; it's something you can do. It might be a way to deflect those bullets until police go there."

Crozier and a group of aides produced a 10-minute video Tuesday in which they shoot math, language and telephone books with a variety of weapons, including an AK-47 assault rifle and a 9mm pistol. The rifle bullet penetrated two books, including a calculus textbook, but the pistol bullet was stopped by a single book.

Say! I have a better idea! Along with mandatory school uniforms, make it a requirement that every parent must provide a bullet proof vest and helmet for kiddo. (Yes. I'm being sarcastic)
