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'.
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!"
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
Dimensio: The thought of legally armed citizens terrifies a number of people.
Dimensio: Their concern is entirely understandable: concealed weapons permit holders live in constant irrational completely rationalfear.
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.
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.
