"Texas schoolchildren as young as four years old are being given Winnie-the-Pooh cartoon books, teaching them to “run, hide, fight” if a gunman enters their building.

Parents and teachers in the Dallas area have expressed alarm and concern that the Stay Safe book, produced by a law enforcement consulting firm in Houston, has been sent home in the backpacks of children in pre-kindergarten and elementary classes.

The book features the honey-loving bear created by AA Milne and illustrator EH Shepard instructing kids about how to react to a mass shooting. It is not an official production, Winnie-the-Pooh has been in the public domain since 1 January 2022."

I think it's necessary in the current world we live in, as sad as that is.

Their school is big on “run, hide, fight” also… it’s not just a part of this book, it’s a three step method that a lot of schools are using.


If you have a chance, run…if you can’t run, try to hide, if there’s no where to hide, you fight back.

They learn how to fight using desks, tables, chairs, books, they have mace on their keychains, and yea… the teachers (a lot of them) are armed.

Are they also taught what to do in the aftermath like tourniquets and triage?

How about someone produce a Winnie-the-Pooh book teaching children legal ways to oppose the re-election of any politician who votes against gun control laws?
