  •  When I feel (4+ / 0-)

    I'm being baited like that I politely say I don't want to continue the situation. If the person doing the baiting keeps trying I usually say something really nice -- "Holiday best to you and yours" "I hope you have a joyous and meaningful day", whatever. I've never had an instance where someone kept pushing after that.

      This guy REALLY wanted me to agree that arming teachers is a good idea and would not stop pushing. That told me that no matter what else we had in common, he was a Seriously Ungood person for me to have in my life - both because of his belief system and because of his refusal to take no for an answer.

      •  Arming teachers or allowing teachers to carry is (8+ / 0-)

        the most dumb idea I have ever heard. If the killer knows what the weapon is they can bring ammo and whack the 5'3" 110 lb teacher across the back of the head and take the gun shooting her first. The he can kill her class and move on. How many in republican budget schools classrooms nowadays? 35 ... 45...60. Or maybe the teacher has a really bad day...will teachers be tested frequently for thier mental health, If not one of those teachers can have mental or emotional issues AND he is armed. Never happens in other work places ... yeah sure tell that to the postal workers.

        I guess this is the gun lovers shortcut ... have the teachers either kill the students OR get bonked and have thier gun used to kill them Or have some teacher who is terrified by the size of a kid suddenly seeing a weapon in their hands  and bang an innocent kid killed by an armed teacher who is now a police guard too for lower salaries... Wow a triple + a bonus : lower teacher salaries, arm em to serve as guards and shortcut the process for the mass killers... they now will not even have to find a gun (its already there) and the gun manufacturers and ERs gain more customers.
