Ok, got it to work. Yeah you take the stick away, but you don't cut down the tree. I still want to own my own stick just in case the neighbor needs a good drubbing.

The 'kid' is the juvenile society that has proven over and over again that if it is given large numbers of sticks people are CONSTANTLY going to end up getting hit with them who shouldn't be hit with them.

Thank you, Captain Obvious. And the juvenile society is so afraid that instead of just taking the stick from the "bad willle Kid" the daddy is going to chop down the Cherry Tree-the source of all sticks, that they pitch a fit.

Well I didn't think it was necessary to say it until your response, so...

You do understand that the only way TO take the stick from the "bad willie kid" is to identify the kid first right? Which generally means he's hit someone with the stick?


And that that actually means a bunch of dead kids in our little metaphor here?


See the problem with the "fix it after it happened" approach?

At least "fix it after it happens" would be an improvement over the way it's currently handled in the USA.

Although arming 20% of teachers will cost BILLIONS of dollars and make hundreds of millions for gun makers and hundreds of millions for the NRA. (Because we know they will be providing the training)


And it wont work.

I think it is a great idea. Arm the teachers!

Many whom are criminals and bullies themselves, already praying on naive students! :roll:

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

I would hope that stress-management and anger-management courses are included in the weapons-carry concept, otherwise you're likely to end up with students being rushed to hospital after mouthing off to their teachers and getting a bullet to the leg in return.

Given that the current proposed federal budget lowers the money for school safety etc, do you really think they'll spend extra on doing things properly?
