    Didn't go there. I sold to schools and they were one of the biggest high schools in my region. I probably sold them the cafeteria table at which they were seated.

    I think you don't have a clue what you're talking about nor who I am. I think you need to consider whether you're making any sense before you beak off.

    ... and then we wonder why stuff like this happens?

    Lack of ethics/morals, the availability of guns, and bullying. A deadly combination.

But trying to figure out individual psycho cases is probably a benefit to society that requires professionals to figure out.
    That, suddenly lowering self-esteem from a bully to sub ground levels, and the availability of guns, then this seems to be the repeated result.

    Agreed to somewhat that we didn't have as easy an access to firearms in my day, nor was bullying tolerated from school staff or parents. We've become an overly permissive culture in some respects and too restrictive in others.

    You just can't admit yer wrong that some schools have CCW, as per my own thread.
    And you will never admit that yer wrong--it's how you roll.
    Why are you changing the meaning of CCW from teachers/administrators to parents?
    In other words SMTA, why are you being so blatantly dishonest over an issue we probably agree on ?
    Don't care about another thread.

    The question was asked if guns were allowed in school - you said yes, which of course was not truthful.

    Then again, that is certainly no surprise from you.

    Unbridled joy - the only joy I feel - and that is way to far as its only mild satisfaction - is the knowledge that my comment about the uzi early in this thread was validated and proven true by a gun supporter. And this despite several here taking me to task for it and then the gun supporter bailed me out of any criticism by doing just what i said always happens in these sort of things.

    Its as predictable as snow in Minnesota in the winter. Its as predictable as that knee reflex with the little rubber hammer.

    And I do not know what you and others are all worked up about this event in Washington state. The body count was very low and we all know unless it hits double digits its just a blip on the news cycle and will be gone quickly and not even remembered.

    And denial is not just a river in Egypt.

    You got burned attacking me earlier over the uzi comment and now you hate it that I was proven true not too soon after despite the efforts of some here. So live with it and get past it.

    You and I both know darn well from these incidents in the past that the discussion "gun free zones" is not too far back in the distance in any of these things.

    Sorry for bringing reality into this - but its often inconvenient. Necessary - but inconvenient for some.

    Ahhh a most excellent CON lament, now shall we use a few facts? I guess the Founders would be rolling over in their graves if we take 'under God' out of the Pledge.

    Oh wait, they were against a Pledge and 'under God' was added during the Cold War, just two decades before many CONs mark the beginning of the end...

    Just to refine the CON 'answers', they are not answers, they are CON talking points.

    40 years ago the Washington State School shooting wouldn't have made national news. There was no mass visual media circus the hype the shooting as .... (fill in the blank)... and we would continue to believe our sweet little CON dreams.

    I had to chuckle at the CON who tries to use the fact HE never shot anyone and plays video games... I guess the same 'logic' can claim that since you have driven while impaired by alcohol and not had an accident means alcohol doesn't play a part in highway accidents...
