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.


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

/father.  My daughters don't play violent, but they know how to shoot.

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.

hasty ambush: Normal people are not liberals or become "professional educators"

I enjoy how the entire concept of educating people is offensive to you.

If you're saying "professional educators" actually educate people in these United states, you're as bright as this administrator (or flat out lying).

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.


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.

Same.  If it's not trolling I think that post helped me make a financial decision today.  I was debating on re-enrolling my daughter in private school.  Looks like it's worth the money.  I've found less of that kind of mentality away from the public schools in my area.

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.

I'm the opposite:  I've met a lot of people and the overwhelming majority of them are normal, generally careful individuals that I would be comfortable with them owning a firearm (and in fact, a very large fraction of them do).

I guess I just have a more optimistic view of people.  Either that, or I'm not really scared of strangers.

That last looks like a .22LR bolt action, but I don't recognize the make.  I had a Ruger 10/22, but that was a semiautomatic and back end looked very different (Obviously, different mechanisms).  So, what is that?  You should have given him a 30-06, hehehe.  Maybe a double barrel 12 gauge and 'forget'* to tell him to use one trigger at a time, not both...

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.

I would post my daughter at the range and skating, but it might raise the dander of my EX.
/also in top 1% of her class


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.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: \somemoron: *NO, NOT REALLY. Relax, you panty waisted gun-o-phobes.

We're the panty waisted ones?

How is it that we're willing to walk around unarmed in a world so dangerous that people feel the need to walk around with a loaded firearm strapped to their side?



I guess for the same reasons some people don't drive with insurance - they can't afford it, nobody will sell to them, or they obliviously don't think a time will come when they'll ever need it.

MythDragon: OtherLittleGuy: The 80s called. They want their hair back

You just took a message?
You didn't warn them about the Trade Center attacks? About the USS Cole? About Fukushima? The 2009 stock market dump?
Asshole.


I shouldn't have told them about the Red Sox championships. They hung up immediately.

Road Rash: 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.

Can't tell - trolling or not?


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".
