    if every gun had a trigger lock on it, this would never have happened.

    sure, if a guy uses his own gun, it would. but this was about a gun being misused..without the permission of its owner.

    It is not just guns.

    1) Absolutely correct, it's not the weapon choice rather the intent. This boy in Ohio was going to hurt someone regardless of what he had at his disposal. I think the adults failed these kids here as there were signs that he was considering violence according to the reports. Heck, I remember a couple of years back when a female college student got stabbed to death in the cafeteria and the crowd just looked on in horror, didn't even try to stop the assault. 2) The parents are troubled as well, the father had aggravated assault and DV charges, the mom had violent priors as well, poor kid didn't have a chance.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Puh-leese.

    You don't think the kid could very well figure out where the keys are and swipe them? Or pry the lock off with something?

    Can we go back to where this woman was a convicted felon and wasn't supposed to have a gun in the first place, so what makes you think she would have heeded a trigger-lock law? What fantasy universe is this you're discussing where people with long criminal and drug records who illegally own a gun would heed a law to have trigger locks on all guns?

    Might as well set the fox to guard the henhouse.

    I remember someone years back speaking to how easy it is for a criminal to defeat a trigger lock. Takes minutes to find the key and worse in low lighting when seconds count, and a criminal can pop it in seconds.

    and
    In that thread I was speaking about ADULTS. Do you intend to keep following me around thread to thread looking for any way to try to prove me wrong? If so? I am not playing chickie.

Nowadays, kids seem to have much more trouble handling anything that upsets them emotionally. It's a cultural change in stress management and response, and probably not an increase in bullying. Unfortunately, a kid who is being bullied these days will get in trouble for responding with force, which is what the bully actually needs.
    We should look at pushing, shoving, verbal attacks and threats as unusual! There is nothing or should not be "commonabout someone laying their hands on you or assulting you in the school. It is this kind of thinking that is all kinds of messed up. None of this should be tolerated and parents are suppose to be raising their kids to be able to function in the real world. If while in a school setting someone lays hands on you? That is not a normal thing! It will not be tolerated in the workforce and it damn sure should be be considered a "usual" thing inside a frigging school.

    Having said all this? If I ever have kids? I will teach them if someone hits you? You have a right to hit back and hopefully beat they ass. A child should be allowed to defend within limits and it does piss me off when these schools suspend kids for protecting themselves from someone coming up to them and frigging sucker punching them or hitting them. They really expect kids NOT to react to being hit like that? Give me a break.
