(Sun Sentinel)   Walking into a middle school PE class and asking for beer is bad enough. Having a tattoo that says 'SNIPER' also makes for incredibly bad timing   (sun-sentinel.com) divider line 36

So he made a stupid decision to beg for food and beer in the middle of the day. I do not see why people freak out over a tattoo though.

/ZOMG HE HAS A WORD ON HIM THAT IMPLY'S SHOOTING PEOPLE FROM A LONG DISTANCE AWAY!!!! EVERYONE PANIC!!!!

Our school gym is used as a polling place for local elections, so I have actually seen some pretty... curious... people walk in.

There are plenty of places to get beer... a middle school gym class is not one of them... a bar is... it's a tough distinction.
 
2012-12-20 10:07:29 AM  
It wasn't even a picture of a gun FFS, it was just a tattoo of a word.

You're not helping the kids to deal with the world by making them think they're about to die every day they go to school.

I would like a beer.

/blizzard today
//have plenty of beer

the headline is misleading. the article makes no mention of anyone freaking out. in the south, we play with guns on a regular basis. i know some of you urban yankees don't understand our infatuation with guns, but we don't go around making fun of you for being useless outside the confines of your prison you call city life. do yourself a favor and drive about 75 miles outside your shells and have some fun in the mud with beer, boobies, guns and more boobies. you might learn something about life.

The bitty little town I live in used to use the school gym. People were scuffing up the floor, so they use the church now. It's a farming community. I don't think we've ever had anyone ask for libations at either of the polling sites.

Most voting goes about 50/50 between the two parties up to the state level... if it matters.

So, do you mean that Americans have tattoos implying that they are capable of violence or other manifestations of toughness?

They are about to die though.

It's French.  "sniper."  Je snipe, vous snipez, etc.  It essentially means to make sharp comments to others on an online forum.  See "snark".

I knew this powerbottom twink once who had a couple star tattoos on his left buttcheek who could take a pretty good pounding....

I know two actual snipers, they never talk about it and would never get a tattoo to advertise it. Me thinks he should have gotten Wanna Be...

Nice "don't go around making fun" insult there...anyway....

See, that's the problem with the whole idea that guns are tools. If guns are tools then they aren't play things. I don't think anyone gets a few beers in them and decides to go out to the shed to "rip a few boards off the circular saw" or to the backyard "sledge a few bricks with a sledgehammer" or "punch a few sheets of stainless with the compressed air hole punch in the garage" for fun.

Going in the backyard to practice aiming, or to cut a few seconds off of a shoot-and-reload action, I have no problem with. That's practicing a skill. But if your culture circles around getting a few beers and YEE-HAWWING bunch of rounds off, well, that's not a tool. That's a toy. And you are just part of the image problem you have in trying to convince "those gun-grabbers" that gun owners are responsible.

It is pretty easy to score drugs at school, but beer is usually hard to come by. As for food, I miss the chorizos, but not the rectangular "pizza".

How does a person off the street make it into a (school) courtyard and a PE class with 100 students without being stopped... this school sounds like a jail

As a man who likes beer and making things, I have to disagree with you.

Depends on how the teachers feel about their job. This guy might have deduced correctly, of a location to find beer!

I don't care a bit about your guns, but I'd stay far away from you anyway, since you sound like an idiot.

Am I the only one that got distracted by the fact that one PE class had a hundred freaking kids in it?
 
2012-12-20 11:06:46 AM  
Was he going to shoot someone with his tattoo? Either I'm very confused or this article has a whole lot more stupid in it than a guy asking a PE class for beer. Also...

I had a theology teacher in highschool that kept a cooler under his desk and his mood would improve dramatically throughout the day. Sometimes he would kick the cooler and we would hear it's contents rattle.

The country needs Obama to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem,. Calling for 'meaningful action' is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership - not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response.
 
With all the carnage from sniper tattoos in our country, it's still almost impossible to believe that a guy looking for beer in a middle school gym class could happen. It has come to that. Not even middle schoolers learning how to "accidentally" kick each other in the 'nads during a soccer game are safe.

I grew up in CT playing in the woods and farmers fields. Spent a lot of time in the woods of VT too. Hunting, fishing, shooting clays, all the good stuff.

Not all yankees are from "the city". There are actually lots of areas of New England that arent "city". I know, that goes against what pappy told you. Try leaving the holler for once...

There are a lot of flaws in your reply, but I'd like to point out the most fundamental of them. You're very presumptuous. Nearly all of what I said was tongue in cheek, but since you're one that's so easy to be butthurt, you didn't grasp that.

The only firearm related accident I've ever had was a slide bite and that was only once -- it doesn't take a second time to learn not to hold a grip high. So yeah, take that awesome confidence and foresight of yours and put it to good use in your ass :)

Oh, I'm fully aware of how many rednecks are in upstate. Which is why I felt the need to include urban when referring to them.
