    Bringing squirt guns was a rite of spring when I was a boy.
    They were/are as big as semi-automatics .

    As a child in school I often tried to avoid fights and let my teachers know about the bullying despite my parents telling me to defend myself. However in the end the only thing that stopped the bullying was me getting into a fight. I never threw the first punch but more often than not I did finish the fight. And when I did get the crap beat out of me the person still stopped bullying me as they realized that I wasn't really a sissy. So in the end no matter the outcome of the fight it was a win/win for me until the next bully came along and the process started all over. IE I gained enough respect from them that they stopped. When all was said and done my parents were right in telling me to defend myself even to the point of getting into a fight.

    I guess I don't have much to contrast it with since I never went to school. I'm not sure you had actually earned their "respect." Rather, their view may have been that it was now established he is your superior and it could come across as whimpy if he just kept beating up the same kid.

    But how can I know? The latter is more how it worked around me - the notion of matched fights to determine whose kid is superior. If it known one kid can beat the other kid up, then it wasn't really a fight. Rather it was just having one kid beat another (which wasn't uncommon either.) Again, you were there and I wasn't.

    One thing, though, I do know is that "fights" can result in permanent injuries, not just black eyes and a bloody lip. So the bullies you fought probably weren't that tough or didn't really want to hurt you and it more a dominance, pecking order thing maybe. Or didn't REALLY want to fight you, just wanted to act tougher - so more of a faux bully than a real one?

    But I would also wonder if your experiences are recent or many years ago? The potentials of violence in many school districts now seems to involve group/gang type violence and weapons such as knives can suddenly come into play.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
