    Back to School Ad



    Is it that bad? Video was pretty good, nice acting. I like to know what kind of advice you have for kids when they go to school. If they are afraid to get into school.. what to do? How long parents can motivate children to keep going and study if this crap is going on (as it is now)?

    Holy crap, that was metal as ****. Also, nice to see another Kulinski fan. Angry David Pakman is a pretty good political commentator.

    Kulinski is sane and probably smarter than me (I'm just simple Finn, you know). It's kinda funny that what Kulinski is saying is just common sense to me, but what I'm asking (pretty often) is that how people end up with system like that? (when it comes to guns, education and healthcare). I mean people should be able to point out how it's superior way to do things compared to any other around there on this planet. I have to say that it just beats me, I have 0 clue why things are like they are.

    The perspective from the outside of the US is very shocking. We look at your society and see a lot of very good things.

    We also see a society that is very very repressive towards individuality. You are very intense about conforming.

    This is enforced through social bullying. That is most intense at your schools.

    Then throw in more guns than people........

    The families of school children are beginning to buy bullet proof back-packs, but I am not sure how good such back-packs are at stopping close range fire from rifles. It's truly the most wonderful time of the year! Such a special place is America.

    Cheers and good luck kids, you'll need it.

    The only reason to fear is because they are being trained to fear.

    Between 1999 when the Columbine school mass shooting occurred, and 2015 according to the below citation, there were only THREE grade school mass shootings, i.e. those at high school level and below.

    1. Columbine (1999)

    2. Nickel Mines PA (2006)

    3. Sandy Hook CT (2012)

    A history of mass shootings in the US since Columbine - Telegraph

    Wikipedia also listed the following seven:

    4. Heritage High School GA (1999)

    5. Santana High School CA (2001)

    6. Granite Hills High CA (2001)

    7. Freeman High (WA) 2017)

    8. Marshall High (KY) (2018)

    9. Parkland FL (2018)

    10. Santa Fe High TX (2018)

    List of school shootings in the United States - Wikipedia

    Full disclosure, there have also been mass shootings at College level, but I omitted those because the VIDEO in the OP seems to focus on grade school children, in an open appeal to emotion.

    I also omitted those "lists" containing various numbers of gun "reports" occurring on school property, since (if I recall correctly from prior posts/research) counted any form of gun discharge at any time of the day and for any reason as "school shootings." For example, that Wiki citation lists a 14 yo who used a BB Gun to shoot at elementary school kids in Dekalb County GA April 2019.

    There are 88,744 elementary schools in the USA and 26,760 Secondary schools. • Number of elementary and secondary schools, by type U.S. 2016/17 | Statista

    Yes, there is a danger someone may enter a school and take such despicable actions, and we should not ignore this threat. But children seem to be more at risk drowning in pools, or getting into a car accident.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    School shootings were not a problem forty or fifty years ago and gun laws were not more restrictive back then than they are now. So if school shootings are a problem now its not because the gun laws today aren't restrictive enough.

    You can start by explaining to them that they have a better chance of being struck by lightening than they do of dying in a mass shooting.

    Aren't you guys suppose to be the party of science?

    The Democratic Party has always been a domestic terrorist organization, so it figures many would get their rocks off doing everything possible to terrorize children. That's what progressive Democratic facists-sadists do. They live in constant personal terror of everyone and everything - and want everyone else to too.

    But there have not been anywhere near as many mass shootings as the leftwing advertises for with their gun free zone signs.
