My rule is: if you shoot it, you eat it. Excepting times where you are defending your life.
We have loads of guns,a nd shoot weekly. So i bought my son, at his request, a shirt that says, "The only numbers I know", and it is surrounded by
various and sundry ammo related numbers (5.56, 7.62, .45, etc).
His french teacher took offense and sent him tot he office. THe vice principle said, "Well, she is being a bit silly about it....but by the letter
of the policy it is referencing a "weapon".
So he bristled and mouthed off a bit. I get called into the principles office for a conference. I explain my position (its not a weapon, but a tool
we feed our family with). They told me i was crazy. So on the way out I pointed out a kid with a dragon tshirt. Had a dude with a sword. I asked
him if that was a weapon. Of course, they rolled their eyes. but now you cannot wear a shirt with a dude holding a sword.
My next phase, if they push it any further: no military emblems. If a bullet is a weapon, so is a soldier. Why are we glorifying war and killing?
Of course, I am being obnoxious about it.
I know this. But don't care.
