dittybopper: gja: His best gift is parents who are good people, dude. Well done.
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.


In fact, the educational system is a shuck, often peddling mindless conformity and puro bullshiat. The mistake that many people make, upon realizing this, is that they then assume they have no further duty to be educated. Not so, ever. One must instead redouble one's efforts.

dittybopper: Eddie Adams from Torrance: Dimensio: The thought of legally armed citizens terrifies a number of people.

It terrifies me.

I've met a lot of people and a large number of them are farking morons that I wouldn't trust with anything more dangerous than a spork.

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.


Or you don't think you are so much more intelligent than everyone else. I'm sure everyone who is against everyone owning guns wouldn't mind if we let them have guns just to keep the rest of us idiots safe.

They'll need a wider sticker to depict a rifle, similar to what was fired inside Sandy Hook.  BTW Principal Nolan:  It was a pistol that ENDED the massacre.  The one he used to take his own life.

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.


This will earn you a place against the wall when the revolution comes. I hope you are just trolling, for your sake.

It amazes me that some people think a "no gun zone" makes them safer.

If I were a psyco nut job hell bent on shooting a bunch of people I would pass up all the places guns were not banned and head straight for a place were they are not allowed.

A no guns allowed sign is more like a bullseye for crazy people.

Hell if I owned a place of business I would put up signs saying 'show us your ccw permit and receive 10% off'.

You're leaving a hell of loophole that people can walk right through.

Why not make "no homicidal, psychopath zones" and eliminate the risks associated with weapons other than guns.

You're welcome.

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."

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.

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.
