The only thing the government needs to do to fix stupid is allow the administration in all public schools to paddle the kids once more, with no legal
backlash so long as there was not sever injury in the process. Obviously I don't want the principal to crack the kids in the jaw or put them in
armbars. But once kids stop believing they are God in school and the teachers their lowly servants, I would venture they will have more manners and
respect in school, which in turn will lead to better grades across the board.
But we are that point of no return.
an FYI xnibiru, $150 is actually on the expensive side for the guns I mentioned and the related brands from the old days. Most of those would never
sell for over $100!! Except to dumb teenagers who don't know any better because they think guns make them cool on the streets.
i wonder what the school and neigborhood are like, some people carry illegal guns because there are so many around them doing the same thing, for them
its just everyday protection, sucks for them
Exactly and that is what a lot of these gun control maniacs just do not seem to understand. People actually have to live in neighborhoods where
budgets do not allow for police to patrol routinely and are infested with everyday blatant crime. A stranger can and do walk into some of these blocks
where it appears a group of youth are simply minding their business and chattin about their day. But once that stranger walks by, in many cases these
youths will then harass, block, and demand their money and/or property. Most of the times they will then subsequently violently attack the poor
bastard even if he/she does comply.
Those places do exist and people do not want to be a victim. I do not condone the fact that this student was carrying at school. However, I will not
blame him for actually owning one if he feels he is always in danger in the neighborhood he lives in.
For crying out loud Chicago has places where you just do not go if you were not born and raised there. Gangbangers freely post up on the corners
selling dope and flashing their illegal guns with impunity. The gun laws only make it harder for the poor saps that have to live and grow up there.
And guess what, since the poor law abiding citizens are prevented from adequately protecting themselves, they have to join the next generation of
crime in that community to survive.
If a homeowner in Chicago had the right to own an AK-47 or an AR, they may not be so afraid to actually name names and report crimes without fear of
retaliation. because they would at least have a fighting chance when the local posse shows up around their building and surrounds the exits
Sorry for the rant. As far as the student, again I don't know much about the circumstances as the only thing the media wants everyone to hear is "gun,
school, and shooting" but the fact that it accidently discharged I believe in his backpack would lead one to believe it was one of the older garbage
pistols made during the "Saturday Night Special" days. Super cheap (poor craftsmanship) and very compact, just like ignorant teens prefer.
