"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.
She said she would prefer "something more subtle."
"You can't look at this (sticker) and not think about Sandy Hook," the principal added.

It has been my experience that we take our best and brightest and promote them to positions where they can greatly influence our children. They usually end up as school administrators. This woman is a great example of that virtually unbroken chain of success stories.

And by "best and brightest" I mean "stupidest."

Luckily, my kids went to Andrew, and those people are smart enough to keep their mouths shut.

But it all makes sense.  Remember, this is a representative of a profession, that is panic-stricken when a grade-schooler bites a sandwich into the shape of a gun.  These posters look exactly like real guns.  When they go up, expect massive sweat stains on everyone, but the kids.

Laugh if you want, but according to a study conducted by college classmates of mine, when comparing the effectiveness (in getting people to think about smoking), the ads that work best are old-timey TV cigarette commercials and produced-by-Philip-Morris anti-smoking commercials, with actual "smoking's bad for you" commercials produced by nonprofits being far less effective (imagine that).

Sometimes, saying "DON'T THINK ABOUT ELEPHANTS" makes people think about elephants.

There are actually multiple factions of different kind of crazy at work - but yeah, more and more, they're all second raters. And it isn't surprising. I don't know any normal person who would attempt to do one of society's most challenging, crucial jobs while being perpetually abused in the forum of public opinion and paid worse than a garbage man. Bust my ass attempting to educate some IQ 80 car detailer's kid, so that said slug can get up at the PTA meeting and explain in his halting monosyllabic manner that I am a dumb commie and shouldn't have a union and need to get right with Jesus?

I have been a special education teacher for years, specializing in IEP's (Individual Education Plans) and I can tell you the push is on to eliminate guns from our schools completely. I have had fathers blatantly tell me they encourage their children in all kinds of violent play at home. I do not hesitate to recommend a child receive special courses and be separated from their peers if they show signs of "gun-orientated" play and it is a dangerous precedent to allow it to continue without censure from the school. I have heard too many "It's just a Lego gun!" or "It's a drawing! It's just a drawing!" (usually laced with profanity, which doesn't earn their children points with me) to be a part of ignoring this problem.

So parents, if you want your children to advance with the rest of their classmates, do us all a favor and leave the violence at home with yourselves, don't contaminate the rest of the children.

You're an idiot.  No, seriously, you are.  How do you think we have all managed to make it this far prior to you sweeping in to save the world?  Oh yeah, it's because KIDS FARKING PLAY.  They are playing the same way they did 50 years ago.  They aren't all committing mass murder.  That has nothing to do with you.  I can see if you have a kid who is ACTUALLY violent, that's a completely different story.  But if you're segregating a kid for a LEGO gun or a drawing, you're not very intelligent and there's really no other way to put it.

Is the problem the violent play, or the imaginary gun?

2014-02-07 02:32:36 PM  
As I stated in the other discussion: the concern is not necessarily the image of the firearm, but rather the reminder, created by the image, that citizens will now be able to legally carry firearms in public. The thought of legally armed citizens terrifies a number of people. Those individuals are confronted with the reality that any person whom they observe in public may possibly be legally carrying a concealed firearm. This then creates the overwhelming concern that they will suddenly be shot, without cause, by an armed citizen who suddenly experiences a psychotic break. Every step they take outside now will be dominated by the constant, overpowering dread that at any moment a bullet will strike them.

Their concern is entirely understandable: concealed weapons permit holders live in constant irrational fear.

You know, if I were designing a system that would guarantee a lack of intellectual diversity, I don't think I could come up with one better than the tenure system.

Sure, at first it seems to be a guarantee of intellectual freedom, until you realize that they are selected by the other faculty.  Eventually, it results in a sort of ideological inbreeding where only the ones who think as all the others get to stay.

Why would they live in constant fear?  Has he been acting violent?  Is he waving the gun around or even announcing that he has it?  That doesn't make any sense.  If you're walking around eyeballing everyone who *might* have a gun and living in constant fear you may want to seek out some medication because that's not normal.

Fizics: I have been a special education teacher for years, specializing in IEP's (Individual Education Plans) and I can tell you the push is on to eliminate guns from our schools completely. I have had fathers blatantly tell me they encourage their children in all kinds of violent play at home. I do not hesitate to recommend a child receive special courses and be separated from their peers if they show signs of "gun-orientated" play and it is a dangerous precedent to allow it to continue without censure from the school. I have heard too many "It's just a Lego gun!" or "It's a drawing! It's just a drawing!" (usually laced with profanity, which doesn't earn their children points with me) to be a part of ignoring this problem.

So parents, if you want your children to advance with the rest of their classmates, do us all a favor and leave the violence at home with yourselves, don't contaminate the rest of the children.

It is.  It's a 1950's vintage .22 LR bolt action (forget the make and I don't feel like opening up the safe to check right now) that my father fixed up for him.  Touched up the barrel and action with cold blue, cut the stock down a couple inches, and put a brass plate in the bottom of the receiver to convert it from magazine fed to single shot.

I fully expect that gun will be functioning perfectly when the littlebopper is my age, at which point that gun will be 100 years old.

I imagine it will. My dad has a 1906/7 Winchester .22 LR pump action like the one below. It's not the prettiest gun but it's in perfect working order. Only thing on it that's needed fixing was a rusted magazine spring. I think I was 8 or 9 the first time I shot it.

Dimensio: As I stated in the other discussion: the concern is not necessarily the image of the firearm, but rather the reminder, created by the image, that citizens will now be able to legally carry firearms in public. The thought of legally armed citizens terrifies a number of people. Those individuals are confronted with the reality that any person whom they observe in public may possibly be legally carrying a concealed firearm. This then creates the overwhelming concern that they will suddenly be shot, without cause, by an armed citizen who suddenly experiences a psychotic break. Every step they take outside now will be dominated by the constant, overpowering dread that at any moment a bullet will strike them.

Their concern is entirely understandable: concealed weapons permit holders live in constant irrational fear.

He's an interesting data-point in the nature vs. nurture argument.

I was in the gifted program when I was a kid, and my father is intelligent as are my brothers.  We're all genetically related.

The littlebopper, on the other hand, is adopted, having been a 'safe haven baby' that was dropped off at the local hospital, so it certainly isn't my genetic contribution, because that is zero in this case.

But the distaffbopper and I read to him every single day from the time he could hold his head up until he was reading the books to us.  And we took every opportunity to make everyday activities a learning experience, and to this very day we're involved, even though he's 10.  For example, I coach his Odyssey of the Mind team.

I'm just of the mind that I don't think that I should give up my responsibility for his education simply because the government provides and requires it.

The joke is that I claimed concealed weapons permit holders to "live in constant irrational fear" immediately after attributing anxiety regarding a no-guns sign to a condition -- which I claimed to be reasonable -- that can be accurately summarized as "constant irrational fear".

Think I saw some early!  I may need counseling, hopefully by a young, female therapist, who has big bazooms.

draw a radius from State and Madison that includes Rockford, Joliet and Kankakee, you can have everything west and south, good luck!

Is it a picture of a gun, or just a picture of what a gun might look like?

AngryDragon: Not many mass shootings in gun stores or shooting ranges


There may not be mass shootings and I understand the point you are trying to make, but even shooting ranges aren't safe. Just over a year ago, a former SEAL was murdered at a gun range.

I don't want Joliet or Kankakee. Then again, I also don't want Chicago to be its own state.

This is why one should not take mental patients to the range. It should be one of the commandments of gun safety, along with such items as, "Your weapon is always considered to be loaded", and "Don't ever allow the muzzle to point in the direction of anything you would find it unacceptable to destroy".

How many since then at gun stores and shooting ranges?

If the total makes up more than, say, one one hundredths of a percent (0.01%) of the total number of firearms deaths in a year, I'd be surprised.

This has gotten to the point, that I think the school administrators are just trolling everybody.  It's got to be some kind of conspiracy to see how far they can jerk people around.  I bet at their conferences, they close the doors and laugh and laugh, "Tell us again, how you locked down the school over the pop-tart gun!  That's the best one!  And don't leave out the part where the parent are crying, begging to see their children, and you tell them, "No children can be released until the SWAT team determines that there are no more pop-tarts on the school grounds."

Fizics: I have been a special education teacher for years, specializing in IEP's (Individual Education Plans) and I can tell you the push is on to eliminate guns from our schools completely. I have had fathers blatantly tell me they encourage their children in all kinds of violent play at home. I do not hesitate to recommend a child receive special courses and be separated from their peers if they show signs of "gun-orientated" play and it is a dangerous precedent to allow it to continue without censure from the school. I have heard too many "It's just a Lego gun!" or "It's a drawing! It's just a drawing!" (usually laced with profanity, which doesn't earn their children points with me) to be a part of ignoring this problem.

So parents, if you want your children to advance with the rest of their classmates, do us all a favor and leave the violence at home with yourselves, don't contaminate the rest of the children.


Now THIS is how you troll.  Bonus points for making public school teachers seem extra stupid.

Some school textbooks -- which are printed with paper -- feature pictures of President Barack Obama. I am astounded that some gun nuts would actually believe nothing wrong with allowing pictures of firearms near pictures of the President.

If the schools are going to punish kids for drawing pictures of guns then how can the schools put drawings of guns on the doors?

At least there is attempt to be consistent. Paranoid, stupid, etc, but at least consistent.

Cricket bat is a lousy weapon, made of two pieces of wood joined;  a baseball bat is a single piece of wood or aluminium.

AngryDragon: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: We really need some sort of common sense authority in place, people who are sane, well-adjusted, and emotionally stable, who have the power to review people in public office like this and go "Yeah, sorry, you're clearly a lunatic and you shouldn't even be in charge of a mall information kiosk, let alone a god damn public school. Gtfo!"

The field of education chased off anyone who was sane, well-adjusted, and emotionally stable long ago.  It has become an echo chamber of the same ideas ricocheting between the same people year in and year out.  The scary thing is that they're educating our kids.


No they aren't, indoctrinating maybe but definitely not educating.

Dimensio: meyerkev: Dimensio: Their concern is entirely understandable: concealed weapons permit holders live in constant irrational completely rationalfear.

My cousin works in and around Detroit as an electrician.

If you banned him from carrying a gun just in case, he'd either ignore the law, or refuse to do jobs in Detroit (which would further hurt the poor black people.  What do you have against poor black people?)

Do you not understand that your cousin's carrying of a firearm causes other people to live in constant terror that your cousin will suddenly and without cause kill them?


Then they should carry guns in case he nuts up.

325.000.000 people, a few hundred murdered in "Gun Free Zones". one murdered in a "Guns Welcome Zone". Which seems like better odds?

Having a job which allows for more free time than normal, I get to check out the threads throughout the day.  I've noticed a trend in the gun threads (check the time stamps, I'm serious here).  The majority of anti-gun people post during working hours and the majority of gun supporters or neutrals post during late or off hours.  Sounds like college students don't like guns.  Imagine that.

dittybopper: somemoron: That last looks like a .22LR bolt action, but I don't recognize the make.

It is.  It's a 1950's vintage .22 LR bolt action (forget the make and I don't feel like opening up the safe to check right now) that my father fixed up for him.  Touched up the barrel and action with cold blue, cut the stock down a couple inches, and put a brass plate in the bottom of the receiver to convert it from magazine fed to single shot.

I fully expect that gun will be functioning perfectly when the littlebopper is my age, at which point that gun will be 100 years old.


Very nice.  I wish mine had been a bolt action.  Would've made me slow down and relax, and focus on getting the shot perfect.  Would have made me a better marksman.  Of course, I haven't fired a weapon in nigh on 15 years or more.  *sigh*
