It's no ordinary school day at the Four Peaks Elementary School in Fountain Hills Arizona -- where the lesson is how to handle a shooting.
Action star Steven Seagal, takes on the role as teacher.
Seagal guided 48 posse volunteers through various aspects of shooting scene management, including room-to-room searches, critiquing their work.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTOR STEVEN SEAGAL, SAYING:
"You are not doctors and lawyers -- you are cops right now and when you yell at somebody get down on the ground they have got to do it. If they don;t do it, you have got to make them comply. quick. For every second that goes by -- you could be losing children."
Not all the reviews are raves.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) CYNTHIA WHARTON, FOUNTAIN HILLS RESIDENT, SAYING:
"These posse members might be shooting at something -- who knows what -- and who gets caught in the middle? Our little kids. This is... No gun should ever be in a school."
While most parties support school safety -- just how you get there is part of the renewed debate over gun control in America.
