Anyone so brainwashed to fear a paper depiction of a firearm is insane and should not be teaching.

"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.


Normal people do not behave this way.
This level of hysteria borders on satire and belongs in an Onion article.

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!"

sawzallz: 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'.


This.  Seriously.  Not many mass shootings in gun stores or shooting ranges

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.

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.

If you can't even look at a picture of a gun without thinking of Sandy Hook, you shouldn't be a school principal and you probably need psychiatric counseling.

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.

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?)

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.

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.


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.

/please tell me you're trolling and I just took the bait
