Fox & Friends host Elizabeth Hasselbeck

Earlier today, Fox & Friends host Elizabeth Hasselbeck featured a martial arts instructor who teaches school-age children to run toward school shooters and disarm them.

Hasselbeck’s segment sparked outrage among viewers who say teaching children to stand and fight should be the very last resort when they are faced with an active shooter in their school.

Hasselbeck started off the segment by saying, “in an active shooter situation, five seconds can mean the difference between life and death. But there are some things you can do and your children can do to make a difference.”

She then asked martial arts trainer Tony Morrison to demonstrate how he teaches children to disarm active shooters.

Morrison held a stapler in his hand while one of his students rushed him from behind, grabbed his stapler and performed a few karate moves on him.

Critics argue that school-age children should be taught to run, not engage shooters.

Morrison counters that teaching children to run makes them ignorant.

“Once you engage the gunman, you have to — you have to just take him out,” said Morrison. “You have to fight strong. So you’re not actually going to try and get away until you actually make sure that you’ve done some damage to him. Because if you don’t, then he’ll just pursue you.”
