There was never a question about loosing.Anyone reasonably going into a fight has to accept and prepare for the possibility of getting their butt kicked, and decide that its acceptable in order to fight. Most place's I've been that sort of gang jump in has been unacceptable, and its usually 'called out' before hand that it not be done. Usually thats enough. if not, ah well. Still better than running away, especially since, in this case, you can't run away, you're either getting beat up and not fighting back or getting beat up more and fighting back. So just fight back. Eventually they'll get on someone who doesn't fight back. In fact, thats probably whats happening with this guy here.
Yes, thats true. Eitherway, you're catching a beating. If its from a bunch of them, then it becomes a stomping. A difference, to be sure.I'd still wager that in most cases they'll move onto someone that can't or doesn't fight back, orif not then if you've been stomped several times it'll force an issue with the police and school administration.
I don't know anyone who's ever been better off from running away. The more succesful one's have just gotten down to work, gotten their buds or smeared vaseline on their faces (well, the girls do that) and just flat out jump right into it. And thts in 'questionable' neighbhorhoods. You're almost allways better off doing that. And as for groups jumping in? Well, you need to get some of your own buds to represent, to at least prevent the other side from jumping in. And if it becomes an all out melee? Well, better than being stomped as a lonely coward.
Get back to us when you have actual cultural diversity, a former slave population, and two completely different languages, spread out over three hundred million people. And welsh doesn't count as another language. No one is scared of roving gangs of welshmen.

Banning guns is NOT gonna do it, there will always be guns since they are so incredibly easy to produce, I could personally make a SMG quite easilly if I wanted to, and a muzzle-loader even easier, ammo is a bit harder to produce however. (note that I would NEVER make an illegal firearm)
Also explosives are VERY easilly made, esspecially vertilizer bombs, if a kid with such intent wanted to, he/she could just make a large bomb with maybe some nails or other nasty shrapernal.
Killers will always find ways to kill, no matter what you do, no matter what you ban...Sure guns are effective at it, but you have to deal with people who are CAPABLE of using a gun in such a way.
Holland has all guns restricted to use ONLY on a firing range or hunting, use outside these organizations is not legally allowed, not even for self-defense.
STILL we have an EXTREME amount of illegal firearms, and by far they out-number the legal firearms in this country, esspecially under the minorities such as the muslim people and people from South America and Africa.
You know what I think would be best? have ARMED SECURITY GUARDS on high schools, arm them with MP-5 sub machineguns for all I care as deterent...that's how you stop school shootings, or atleast limit them, a shooter would most likely try to take out the guards first, and in most cases the shooter will be outgunned.
