    Man, do I feel old--when I was a kid, we boys used to write stories about blood & guts getting blown up all over the place for class, and as long as our grammar was decent enough the teachers would just laugh. Nowadays, not only can't children have such a creative outlet (ahem :)) without getting shipped off to Gitmo, their grammar sucks even worse than ours did (a lot worse, from what I've seen).

    No, it's cattle herders and Native Americans, neither of whom use guns. That's what they call gringo vaqueros and Injuns these days. ;)

    On the contrary, the media just showed that they still have some left, while exposing the people we should be the most wary of. To put it bluntly, we need to take our children out of public schools.

    And I wonder whether that's how they got their jobs in the first place.... :uhoh:

    Hahahah. My dad used to yell at me for playing with his timing light while I "helped" him work on the car. It's not my fault it looked like some sort of sci-fi laser pistol! :)

    That's the funny thing about those who strongly oppose allowing teachers to carry--they've been claiming lately that it would create more violence. Huh? :confused: Nobody has suggested arming students, just teachers and other school employees. If you guys are considered too dangerously unstable to handle guns (on a voluntary basis, no less--this weeds out the anti-gun teachers who don't even trust themselves), then why are people allowing you to be around their children all day, let alone teach them?

    I'm starting to think that most antis, particularly the well-meaning ones, must have a gene that makes them unable to sense self-contradiction (i.e. they have no sense of cognitive dissonance). This common willingness to readily embrace doublethink among the population is frankly rather frightening. :uhoh:

    Whether there is a well-organized master plan in place or not, clearly there is an agenda being carried out in public schools, and we're being made into pariahs. I know some parents who own guns and support the RKBA, but have made the subject of guns taboo in their own homes, just like in school, so that their children won't accidentally slip and get suspended. :banghead:

    I agree that the subject of education, including where our children are educated, is very relevant to the long-term future of the RKBA. We have to take all the appropriate steps in all of the relevant areas (our opponents are doing just that) while we're still strong, otherwise we'll eventually end up as just another lunatic fringe group in the eyes of the general public (if this hasn't happened already).

    According to news report, the gun was not even brought to the school, they were only talking about shooting each other with a bubble gun.

    They're teaching our children from Kindergarten onward that "gun" is a four-letter word--and more than that, labeling the violators terrorists. Aren't they jumping the gun a bit in going after the 1st Amendment before they've even finished off the 2nd Amendment? :rolleyes: Trust me, if they could read thoughts and ban those, they would.

    The article I read on this incident said a school official overheard the girl talking about the bubble gun while at the bus stop. The girl was searched and did not have the 'gun.'
