I'm totally going to shoot up this school!

Oh wait, what's this? This sign appears to be telling me that there are no guns allowed in the building.  Well I don't want to get into any trouble.

heavymetal: It's sad that America has gone so full-retard over "guns" that reasonable adult conversations cannot be held on the subject.


Yep. But I think it's something that will work itself out. It's like a teenager's goth phase - you can argue about it, or just wait it out until it's passed and we feel suitably ashamed for the way we were.

It's just that this Goth Phase is a bit murdery.

Seems whoever made that sign really doesn't like hi-powers. Clearly not an informed opinion, regardless of what you think of the magazine disconnect.

Are gunophobics a subset of the imaginary boogeymen that gun nuts arm themselves against?

Calling any sane person a gunophobe is like calling someone a bombophobe - in other words, yeah, no kidding. They exist for one purpose, which is to blow holes in things.

I have no problem with sports shooting or hunting, but if you feel the need to be armed at all times in a modern industrialized society with both a standing army and a police force in every community, that's not a second amendment issue - it's a mental health issue, and a tragic one.

Just install a toilet paper holder on each sign for most Americans.

I don't think gun free zones are meant to stop shooters, but to let other people feel comfortable. Some people are uncomfortable with things designed to wound and kill being around them in inappropriate contexts.

Considering the number of deaths by firearms and automobiles each year in the US, I am actually kind of surprised they are not sensationalized more. I would love to know how to fix the problem we in the United States face with reckless gun violence. I have no desire to ever own a gun, I would like to fire some at some point in my life.  I know very little about guns and I am not embarrassed to state that. I know banning them and taking the same approach with guns that we did with drugs is not the answer.  I just don't know if there is a way to improve our situation without massive education programs on guns, maintenance, storage, use, etc.

/Education programs, especially national ones are never very popular
//I am not endorsing some terrible D.A.R.E. equivalent for guns

While I do support some small laws/changes around obtainment and storage in the home (seriously, accidental discharges in the home are nearly inexcusable), I'd think most of our gun problems go away when we stop ignoring tangential problems and get to dealing with them. Most gun violence happens in places where basic economic development and education would take a big chunk out of it. Some more happens from untreated mental health issues. Add on negligence, and you're getting most of it wrapped up.

Yes, because we can always rely on the police to be there right when you need them.  As they say, when seconds count, police are only (58) minutes away!

It's certainly not a mental health issue to want to have the means to defend oneself immediately.  I don't berate people for carrying spare tires in their car or putting fire extinguishers in their homes (even though we have AAA and the Fire Department in every community).  Since I don't have an irrational fear of firearms, why would I berate someone for carrying the right tool to defend themselves?
 
2014-02-07 08:33:23 AM
Well, yeah, if you've gone through the trouble of getting a carry permit, you should kinda already know that schools are one of the places you're not supposed to carry. On the other hand, with a sticker, I suppose no one can say, "oh, I didn't know I wasn't supposed to do that."
 
2014-02-07 08:34:12 AM
They're there to inform everyone where it is not okay to conceal-carry their weapon.   If you have a problem with a sticker saying "no guns here" in this context, you've lost your ability to think critically.

.No, insane person in the article, no one thinks these stickers mean "bring guns here".  You've lost your ability to think clearly.. if you ever had such an ability.

No, people in this thread, one claimed the stickers had magic powers to prevent murder.  You've lost your ability to think critically.

No. it is not sane to be a "gunophobe".  You've lost your ability to think critically, as your comment has no relevance to TFA

Mr Byrne, the Superintendent:

The image can be frightening, Byrne said, "but if it keeps the world safer, that's OK. The No. 1 thing we do for kids in general is keep their school safe. We don't want schools to become like airports but we should make some reasonable efforts. If it's reasonable to tell people this is a safe, no-gun zone, then we'll do it."

So its not just one person as suggested above.  Thank god we have little kids getting suspended for drawing what is now going to be on every door to the inside.  Nannies are nannies, no matter what legislation is passed.

"It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, 'Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,'" Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

No it's not. Not only is it the law, but it's courteous. "troublesome" isn't a word that should be associated with this sentence at all.

"I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past," Nolan also fretted.

No, the general public will:
1. Leave the guns at home.
2. Biatch about not having their gun.
3. Go on with their lives.

Nobody is going to "wonder", because it has no purpose. Who CARES if domeoen had been able to do it in the past? Do you think they're gonna take the Way Back Machine and go kill a bunch of kids now?

She said she would prefer "something more subtle."

I'm sure she would, because THEN she could make a big faking deal about it when someone doesn't see the sign and gets busted with their carry piece on them. She;ll get to jump up and down in front of the cameras and insist that this was someone who was going to mow down a classroom and that they brought a gun in despite the obvious subtle warning signs.

What a twat.

Epic Fap Session: Well, they found ONE person that doesn't like the decals...

and then chose to apply her opinion to their imaginary adversaries in this country's laughable firearms debate.


Except that when you read TFA, they cite 3 OTHER people. The school's principal and assistant principal, as well as a school superintendent from another school. I know math is hard for some farkers, but 1+1+1+1=4.

It's funny that the gun culture basically requires its adherents be on alert at all times for "threats" - in other words, trust noone.  But then at the same time it promotes the idea that every "law abiding citizen" (whatever that means) has the absolute right to carry a deadly weapon with them everywhere they go, with absolute minimal regulation and oversight.  So they exist in this weird world where you have to be paranoid about criminals constantly trying to murder you, but on a philosophical level agree that we should just trust everyone to be responsible enough to carry a deadly weapon everywhere, so long as they haven't been convicted of a felony in the past.

Generic fear, Rambo fantasies, "self-defense" from a nonspecific, generic threat (paranoia), to be AWs, "its muh rite", and the like, are NOT good reasons.

A gun-free zone can work.

However, it has to be very large.

Examples of such gun-free zones: Japan, Australia, Great Britain

Of course, it would be unconstitutional and extremely unpopular to make the entire United States to be a gun-free zone like in those countries.

You carry a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, and defibrillator everywhere you go?
No?
Then stick that shootin' iron in the safe and hie thee to a mental health professional.
Those other three things are designed to save lives.
Shootin' irons are designed to take lives.
That's the difference, nimrod.


For the most part - there's a fire extinguisher and first aid kit in my car, home and place of employment.

My firearm is also designed to save my life if need be, though the end result may be the loss of life of someone wishing me great bodily harm.

If you don't want to be prepared, that's fine with me.  Just don't try to project your opinion on everyone else.

LasersHurt: mister aj: Gun-free zones wouldn't have prevented the Tampa cinema shooting - if he was going into the cinema to kill somebody, why would have he obeyed the gun free zone!?

I don't think gun free zones are meant to stop shooters, but to let other people feel comfortable. Some people are uncomfortable with things designed to wound and kill being around them in inappropriate contexts.


So people who are uncomfortable with the thought of guns should make themselves "FEEL" better by pretending that they don't exist and that a sticker on a door is a magic force field which repels badness. I got it. You probably are right to think you may never need a gun. But that is only "probably", if you are wrong the results are going to be your own fault for hoping someone else will try to help you. I used a seatbelt long before it was required by law, not because I thought I was going to have a wreck and would NEED it but because I realized that I could be wrong and the results of not wearing it were worse than the trouble of using them.

Mikey1969: "It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, 'Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,'" Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

No it's not. Not only is it the law, but it's courteous. "troublesome" isn't a word that should be associated with this sentence at all.

"I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past," Nolan also fretted.

No, the general public will:
1. Leave the guns at home.
2. Biatch about not having their gun.
3. Go on with their lives.

Nobody is going to "wonder", because it has no purpose. Who CARES if domeoen had been able to do it in the past? Do you think they're gonna take the Way Back Machine and go kill a bunch of kids now?

She said she would prefer "something more subtle."

I'm sure she would, because THEN she could make a big faking deal about it when someone doesn't see the sign and gets busted with their carry piece on them. She;ll get to jump up and down in front of the cameras and insist that this was someone who was going to mow down a classroom and that they brought a gun in despite the obvious subtle warning signs.

What a twat.

Epic Fap Session: Well, they found ONE person that doesn't like the decals...

and then chose to apply her opinion to their imaginary adversaries in this country's laughable firearms debate.

Except that when you read TFA, they cite 3 OTHER people. The school's principal and assistant principal, as well as a school superintendent from another school. I know math is hard for some farkers, but 1+1+1+1=4.


Yes, and that many idiots running one school is criminal. If you have children suffering under these "administrators" and you don't raise hell at every school board meeting until these people are removed then you and your children deserve the indoctrination they are receiving instead of an education.

In all fairness:  http://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/item/so-i-saw-this-panicky-art i cle

So, what I'm taking away from this, is the school isn't responsible for the frantic panic of IL legislators (obviously), and the principal is stuck in the middle between CCW activists, and "ZOMG GUNS ARE BAD MKAY?" parents, and trying to find a way to remain neutral.

So at least as far as this school is concerned, there's no hostility, just frazzlement, and really, namecalling and profanity doesn't help our, or any cause, eh?

No, you don't. You're intentionally distorting it, or completely do not understand something extraordinarily simple.

Which makes sense, since most people who aren't a. a LEO or b. a member of the military will usually end up hurting (or killing) someone else if they actually pull their weapon to deal with a shooter.

Why do I say this?  Mainly due to the fact that the average joe packing a pistol isn't exactly trained to deal with stressful situations where split second decisions are required.  An active shooter situation is one of those.
