The Puck Defense

Careful, those hockey games are violent. The university doesn’t want to promote that.

They’re hoping it will never happen, but if a shooter shows up on their campus, students and professors at a university in Michigan may be throwing hockey pucks.

“They have enough mass to cause injury, small enough to be thrown, (are) portable and they’re not considered a weapon,” Oakland University police Chief Mark Gordon told CNN.


But the hockey pucks are an “absolutely last resort,” said Thomas Discenna, president of Oakland University’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors.


The university’s AAUP chapter has already bought 2,500 hockey pucks, the first 800 of which have been distributed to faculty and the rest to students. They cost 94 cents each, said a university spokesman, who added that the student government ordered another 1,000 pucks.

    The mental retardation caused by liberalism knows no bounds.

    Pretty sure that whoever throws a puck at an active shooter will catch the next round or two or ten. No more effective than simply pissing your pants.

  3. Pat

    I’m sure Don the Con would like to Puck Cohen right now.

  4. Pat

    Or better yet….. Looks like Trump is getting pucked by Cohen.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Pat,

    That is nothing next to what Stormy is doing to liberal, darling, Democrat 2020 frontrunner, disgusting human being, total slime ball, Michael Avenatti.

    That is true justice after what he did to Kavanaugh.

    That should be your focus. Evil eating its own.

  6. Pat

    “Evil eating its own.”

    That’s exactly what’s going on. Pass the popcorn please.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    ” liberal, darling, Democrat 2020 frontrunner”   What is it, comedy night?

    You are truly delusional.  And untruthful.

    What, exactly, has Cohen “done” to Trump?

    Cohen lied about a meeting which had nothing to do with vote fraud, collusion (still not against the law), or releasing Hillary’s emails.

    Cohen admitted perjury.  So he goes to jail.

    Have you been asleep?

    Up until his domestic violence arrest, he was running for President…as a Democrat.

    He has all the qualifications of a Democrat. He beats his woman, holds up a porn star as virtuous, screams “believe all woman” until his woman exposes his violent criminality, he then smears a good family man with false accusations, steals money for personal gain, files lawsuitswithout his clients permission, and doesn’t pay his bills.

    Liberals were drooling over his potential candidacy just 2 months ago. He was a liberal hero.

    It is so delicious the liberal hero has fallen so much. He makes Trump look like a choir boy.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    Sure he said he was running for president, so did Pat Paulson.  Didn’t make him a front runner, nor was Avenatti. Never a liberal hero, never a serious candidate except maybe in his own mind. Your description sounds more like trump cronies Cohen and Manafort.

    Why must you be so disingenuous?


  11. Pat

    Two gay guys don’t count as the gay community.
    Never anything in article about supporting him as presidential candidate.
    Nothing about the two being lefties.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    Did you just say “2 gay guys don’t count” as the gay community?

    Wow.  that is very exclusionary.


  13. Pat

    They would be considered as part of, but not exclusively speaking for that community of individuals. Just as you are part of the conservative community, but don’t exclusively speak for that community of individuals.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    And you get to decide when someone is, and is not, speaking for gay community?

    Duly noted.

    When someone identifies themselves as gay, by putting their gay carnal lust choices forward, they certainly want to be identified as part of the gay carnal lust community.

  15. Pat

    No where in the article did it state that the couple was speaking for the gay community.

    And you get to decide when someone is, and is not speaking for the gay community?

    Duly noted.

  16. Kevin Scheunemann


    There is a sure tell.   No one in gay community is objecting to their defense of Avenatti.


  17. Pat

    And you appointed yourself to make that assumption.

    Duly noted!

  18. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’m a smart guy.

    And humble.

  19. Pat

    I’ve observed that. :)

    Called the “Chuck a Puck” defense.

    Tho I can’t see a bunch of sweater-vested, bowtie wearin’ profs exactly getting all Nolan Ryan-ish all of a sudden.

    This has National Lampoon written all over it.

  21. Kevin Scheunemann

    If I was a white professor on that campus, you better not hit a higher victim class on the liberal intersectional scale with a puck.

    “Victim class” meaning anybody, but another old white guy.

    Even if you hit the shooter with the puck, the sick liberals on campus will make the old white guy professor, hitting the victim class with the puck, with his white privilege, as the crime.

    Campus culture is sick, twisted, and demonic at most liberal universities.
