    But, Melody, why is their marching and protesting viewed as being “uncivilized”? I haven’t seen indications of that. I’ve heard their very heart felt verbalizations that sound well thought out, and truthfully this is their right to let their representatives know how they feel and what answers they want.

    The Weathermen were terrorists. No, they certainly didn’t do the anti-war movement any favors, but I knew then ,and now, that wanting that terrible war to end and bringing home our troops didn’t mean that you were a “commie” and un-American. That is a characterization that still rankles me.
  3. Gun Legislation, Crime and Events

    I remember being in high school, towards the end of the Vietnam War. My fellow classmates (the guys) were pretty concerned with the possibility/probability that if they weren’t accepted to a college, there’d be no deferment, and they’d be drafted. Also, the news broke about the secret bombing of Cambodia. I remember that more than a few of us put on black arm bands to protest this revelation, and the war in general. I don’t recall being coached. I do remember actually thinking about all this and having a pretty strong opinion about it. i think we should assume that these high schoolers have thought about this.... and that the opinion about it is their own.

    First: Why is ANYONE allowed to own a weapon like the AR-15? No reason for a civilian to have this type of weapon. Period. Second: Armed teachers? No. **** no. The most asinine “solution” proposed, ever. That’s got to be straight out of the NRA’s wet dream handbook. Just hearing those words out of the President’s mouth (via Gingrich?) made me want to scream. Absolutely sickening.

    I’ll just say here, let he who is without sin throw the first stone. I have a memory of some posts in this very forum, that threw pretty much all older people under the bus. You know... they weren’t good workers, couldn’t learn anything new... yada, yada, yada. Sucks when you pull out that super-duper wide brush, n’est pas?

    😁. Ok, so my gun knowledge wouldn’t fit in a thimble. (Is there even a gun called a colt45? ) How is that beer, anyway? And does that can fit in a waistband?

    Armed teachers is that most irresponsible and idiotic idea, but not surprising that it’s being spewed by the “shhhhh....don’t talk about G-U-N-S. Ever.” folks. That said, the ball was dropped in a MAJOR way with this shooter. We have to do much more in identifying (which this guy WAS), and then being able to separate these people from their WEAPONS. He’ll, if a guy is drunk, we can take his car license, and confiscate the vehicle. Is it really out of the realm of social responsibility if we pry the guns from the fingers, while still warm? Or must it be from their cold, hard fingers? Ridiculous. This country needs a federal level database of gun ownership. With a limited number allowed. (Want a new gun? Sell one.) With no assault weapons allowed for private ownership. Here’s another idea: With all guns microchipped w/GPS that can make the gun inoperable within 100 ft of a school. You know the technology can be developed.

    So let’s see. Teachers pay out of their own pocket for supplies for their rooms, because there’s no funds in the budget. But you will find the $$ for the Colt 45 you want stuffed in their waistband. You stupid idiot.
