    I'm a high school social studies teacher. Yesterday, I had the kids list words they thought of when they think of history.

    One kid's response: John Browning.:p He even had the Browning Buck symbol on his notebook.

    I love eastern Ky.

    BTW. The kids all love the "The M1 Does My Talking" poster I have up in the room. :D

    Great poster as usual Oleg. Here is my first poster attempt. Maybe you can take it and make something better out of it.

    Good one to both Oleg and Zen21Tao.

    The schoolteachers tend to sit around and swap propaganda, and even "conservative" schoolteachers don't really understand the issue. A relative of mine who knows my enthusiasm for firearms was trying to tell me that "there's no reason for people to have assault rifles." She's generally in favor of RKBA, but the entire environment conditions them against the rights of the people.

    Some teachers may be insulted (most people are when you point out that they have a closed mind). But it's really aimed at parents, anyway.

    Nice work, Oleg. You've been busy. ;) Zen21Tao, too.

    The image was reversed left to right to make it better visually. I can retouch it to add a cylinder release if it really bothers people.

    sm,

    I am sure that even seeing your teeth scares the antis. You might want to conceal that grin to avoid charges of disturbance of peace...

    Good work!

    I persistently say to my graduate education students that, "I'll give up my rights to keep and bare arms right after you give up your rights to free speech, free expression & free association."

    I also tell them persistently what a backside of a horse M. Moore is. He plants ideas of violence into impressionable kids' minds, then when they act on it, he and his fellow perverts try to take our guns. Frankly, I think Moore and the other perverts in Hollywood should be jailed for conspiracy to incite violence. But again, free speech...

    Rant button off.

    Being from the U.P. of Michigan(now living in Az), all of my teachers were very pro-gun and pro-hunting. On opening day of deer season(Nov 15) school was CLOSED:neener: .

    I am a public high school literature teacher, and I wish with everything in me that I could take deep offense at Oleg's poster. I can't; it is too close to the truth. I am blessed to teach in Southwest Missouri where hunting and firearms are an important part of Ozarks culture, but when I attend education conferences or take graduate classes, I am appalled at how reality based Oleg's poster is.

    Thanks for getting the message out there. Also might be worth saying that right after we give up our right to keep a bear arms, they will be giving up their rights to free speech, expression, and association. Once our right to defend and protect ourselves is deminished, the others are in dangerous peril as well.

    I teach math to freshmen. I am insulted. I am more pro 2A than the glut of the High Road, opposing all restrictions and registrations on personal firearms. If I were king and you had the money and wanted to buy it, you could order an M249 off the internet and have it shipped to your door.

    Teachers are just like the military or the police or the media or anyone else, yes there's a lot of us who are ignorant of the facts, but only in proportion to the general population. I refuse to ask students questions about whether or not they have guns at home, for example. Such an image does a disservice and creates a false stereotype.

    On The High(?) Road I've seen my profession called universally incompetent, greedy, left wing, socialist, fascist, and brain washers. It's no wonder I can't find any pro rights and pro education candidates.

    The hard reality is that less people in this country give a damn about education than there are people who give a damn about their second amendment rights. And there are many of us who fight for both despite the odds.

    But I guess that's not good enough for The High Road.

    As someone who has been involved/is involved in education (secondary and post-secondary) and working with my father who is a math teacher for 30+ years, I have met my share of teachers. A pro-2A teacher is rare and more often than not (especially in my location) most of the faculty for the school board are antis.....

    They may be uninformed but i'm going to say that teachers in general tend to lean towards the left. Most of the right leaning teachers I have met have been ex military fwiw.

    I am a Older returning College Student.

    I am fully aware of the "restrictions" many instructors are "under" due to University Policies.

    These can vary with our members on this Forum due to Political Climates around the country.

    My former College, was very "strict" due to Politics. Still, I had a very anti-gun instructor, her views were "expressed". She got by with this whereas a pro-gun instructor would not.

    Current College, a smaller one, is more "free" of Politics, and expression of ALL viewpoints - for or against firearms, or political views - you name it.

    I mean we often speak of hunting or shooting in class, and yes we have had really great interaction of various viewpoints without "fear" of instructor or student getting into trouble.

    Former College - me being me - I rebelled.

    IF that Instructor could bring a Gun lock to class to "promote gun locks" then by golly I can use gun locks to secure a fire extinguisher to promote how stupid the idea is.

    I can express my viewpoint how if that trash can is on fire, how long it will take for pulling the fire alarm to get a response and the fire put out. How calling 911 will take time as well- or how long it takes to remove a "lock" to use a tool to 'extinguish" an immediate threat.

    IMO, We are not painting with a broad brush Educators in a negative manner.

    We are expressing In-effective Education of Gubmint, Politics, and Tryanny of persons - by persons no matter what their profession may be.

    Be it LEO, Educator, News Reporter, Grocery Clerk, Hardware Store worker, Gas Station owner, Drug Store owner...

    Take Oleg's poster and change the wording to reflect the "thing" in the poster....

    To many persons a hand axe is....
    To many persons a one gallon gas can is...
    To many persons a box of Sudaphed is...
    To many persons a Kitchen knife is...
    To many persons a box of kitchen matches is...

    I like yours Zen21Tao. Only problem is that it doesn't blow up well, too pixilated. Better than I could probably do though.

    Hey Eucldean,

    I often get annoyed when teachers are universally lumped in with the lefties, but I don't defend the profession. I only point out that people shouldn't generalize because there are many of us who are pro-RKBA, conservative, libertarian, etc. HOWEVER, as I often point out to my students, there is a reason for stereotyping - because stereotypes are often based on fact. The last statistic I saw for college professors in general is nearly 85% self-identify as liberal, and only 15% self-identify as conservative. I have no idea what the stats are for K-12, but even in my small rural conservative town where most of my college teaching colleagues are conservative, our local k-12 is populated by the left. My daugher and her friends often complain to me about how their HS history teacher glorifies Clinton and the Brady Bunch. They keep asking me to debate the guy....

    I am a teacher. I work at a pro-RKBA school. But most teachers aren't pro-RKBA, which is why I phrased it as I did. No offense intended.
