Actually, pretty much every instance of a child bringing a weapon or "weapon" to school is different. Here we have a case of an 11 year-old who apparently felt his safety so endangered that he thought bringing a big ass knife to school in his Scooby Doo notebook was a reasonable solution. Bans on weapons in schools are important, but there is obviously a much bigger problem in this school that needs to be addressed.

Of course the queers justify the kids actions based solely on the fact he's gay and thus automatically a victim, while also blaming others as the cause of his actions.

Having lived in Polk County, where Winter Haven is located, at one time I can understand how the child might feel a need to protect himself. Polk County is still pretty much in the southern tradition of anti-gay. I heard a school principal actually display his disgust that a gay student teacher received a teaching certificate from the state. That is pretty much the mentality there. Hope that kid gets out of that place soon!

If this was a normal kid that brought a weapon because he was being come on to and harassed by a queer then the gays would be up in arms demanding he be charged with a hate crime!

The solution to the problem is to criminalize hate

EVERY person who wishes to purchase a pocketknife, a steak knife, a butter knife, a carving knife, or any sharp bladed instrument such as an axe, a hatchet, pruning shears, or any similar item SHOULD BE REQUIRED to undergo a background check, wait 30 days for the results, be certified sane by a mental health professional, and be required to undergo 30 hours of training in the use and safety of a knife and be required to register said knives.

ALL depictions in the meida, such as tv, movies, and print media, should carry CLEAR WARNINGS that knives will be shown, and that the viewer should NOT attempt to use any knoife without proper training. Any and all old tv shows such as Leave It To Beaver, The Brady Bunch, and other such similar tv shows should be REQUIRED to add warnings at the beginning of each show that knives may be shown.

Hispanic people in ALL circumstances should be prohibited from buying, selling, possessing, using, or even LOOKING AT knives.

Violators should face a MANDATORY MINIMUM of 10 years in prison for each violation of the law.

If the police and school fail to protect the students from danger it is only human nature that one will take whatever measures necessary to defend themselves. Don't expect me to have sympathy for the bullies because I have none for them.

When bullies hit people they should go to jail as well. Assault and battery are also crimes and laws do not need to be selectively enforced (or on the basis of who is gay or straight).

A license to drive, or even own a vehicle is NOT a "RIGHT".

Owning a gun IS a "RIGHT".

I don't think you can require soemone to obtain a license to exercize a U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT. If you really think that the government CAN require that, then they should also be able to require people to obtain a license to purchase a newspaper, a magazine, or any other printed material. Also, one could then be required by the government to obtain a license to attend a church or other religious institution.

Now some of you may say those things are ridiculous. OF COURSE THEY ARE RIDICULOUS ! THE GOVERNMENT CANNOT REQUIRE YOU TO OBTAIN A "LICENSE" (i.e. "written permission of politicians") to exercize your U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ! How about a licnse to publish a neighborhhod newsletter ? How about a license to preach whatever you want a public street corner ? How about licensing pastors so they can preach ? Or editors so they can edit newspapers ?

You do NOT need a license to purchase a firearm, and you should NOT be required to do so.

Unless of course you have NO REGARD for the U.S. Constitution and the RIGHTS and LIBERTIES it protetcs, as The Obamaniac does not have.

Despite the police and school district trying to debunk that there was anti-gay bullying it's common sense that the boy didn't bring the knife to school for no reason. The school and the police have a duty to make sure students are not bullied and are in a safe learning environment. Parents should get copies of school reports and document everything that happens to their child and they should even make police reports especially when bullying escalates to violence against their child. Whether it be someone's race, religion, or actual/perceived sexual orientation or gender identity/expression, etc. no one has a right to bully, harass, intimidate, or assault/batter an individual for any reason.

I don't understand your problem. Are you afraid that a background check will uncover how mentally unstable you are? The NRA has stated that they agree with requiring stronger background checks. What's wrong with background checks that will help prevent people with a history of mental problems and people who are hiding a criminal past from legally obtaining guns?

You are cruel. Imagine if that was YOUR child, being bullied at school for something they could not help. What would YOU do, tell him to "man up" or something stupid like that?

I sincerely pity any child or adult or animal who comes into contact with you. Get counselling. You need it.
