Greg Gutfeld: Kids Should Learn ‘Hand-to-Hand Combat’ to Deal With School Shootings

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld just espoused a theory as to what America should do to curb the plague of school shootings.

Gutfeld suggested during The Five today that children should be trained in hand-to-hand combat so that they could fend off a would-be attacker.

The utterance occurred during a discussion with Juan Williams and Kimberly Guilfoyle on the Florida shooting and what may have led to the tragedy, including Williams singling out video games, before Gutfeld chimed in.

“Society is changing. You have to teach them how to respond,” he said, before referring to kids as “soft targets.”

“You have to be rational about it, which means hardening soft targets through drills and training,” he said. “Learning combat. Learning hand-to-hand combat. This works, by the way, for terror, if there’s a terror attack, and it works for school shootings.”

Gutfeld asked “How do you improve upon this rationally? Well, you train them. That simple.”

Williams responded, “You’d have to train a kid to go to school? That’s kind of sad to me.”

The former Red Eye host exclaimed “self-defense classes are the best thing for a kid.”

Gutfeld also noted, earlier in the segment, that he was surprised that there wasn’t actually more gun violence in this country.
