  •  A Student Brought A Pistol to My School (1+ / 0-)

    The child was 7.  It was an Airpistol but looked exactly like a Smith and Wesson Automatic.  No orange tip on the barrel either.  He waved it around on the play ground, pointing it at kids and the teacher on duty took it away from him.

    The airpistol was not loaded.

    In the "armed teacher" school this child would probably be shot instead of counseling and intervention.

    Wrap your head around that.

    What if the student is waving a knife?

    The NRA and other gun advocates think the solution is so simple, but...

    I'm just here for the Mojo!
