Every room should have a fire extinguisher.
Not just in schools, but in homes.
Keep one in your car.
Extinguishers can be used as a tool and a weapon. The dry chemicals remove all oxygen, and attackers cannot breathe.
Extinguisher shells are metal, and most are light. They can be wielded as clubs or bludgeons.
A felling blow stops aggressors. The assailant is left disoriented or unconscious.
Extinguishers are less threatening than a weaponized populace, and protect against more threats than fire.
(Some context for you)
In my opinion writing class we were challenged to write with extreme concision on a topic of our choice. We were strictly ordered to obey the following stipulations:
- Communicate a single point using 10-12 sentences total
- Two sentences must be exactly five words
- Two sentences must be exactly ten words
- The remaining sentences can be any length
The above is my submission.
