Sigh. And so the debate by gun haters continues! Our entire family enjoy shooting together, mostly long guns but our oldest girl is quite proficient in the pistol sports and competes on the amateur level at our range. Firearms are neither good nor bad, it's the finger on the trigger. We don't need "gun control" we need criminals control, and also YES it is incumbent upon the adults in the house to keep firearms properly secured, lest some juvenile take it into their head to exact retribution upon some bully at school – even though bullies at school pretty much deserve what they get, IMHO.
When i was a kid we didn't have school shootings. We also put the crazy kids in their own special schools. We were also taught to pop the bully in the nose when he shoves us instead of being powerless and going to tell on him to the teacher. But Nooo, not anymore. Putting the bully in his place makes you just as bad as him. BS! You get pushed, push back harder damn it! We need to go back to telling kids to deal with their problems and allowing them to handle them, themselves. We are raising our children to be weak willed, cowardly, and passive to the bullies. That (in my opinion) is why teen suicide is going up and up along with the bullies always winning.

Island you're right and I'm also right too, right??? You mean Jane Velez, I don't watch her anymore either....not sense the Casey Anthony trial!
I normally stay away from those shows, because it scares me and I tend to have nightmares about what they are talking about!
I notice that I am more afraid of things now and think about things that could happen, since I've watched them...When I never did that before, now all the bad stuff is always in the forefront of my mind!
When I drop my son off to School, I am constantly thinking about his safety and "what if".....
I think I watched to much of them for so long!

OK 'i' got a true story to tell ya.
In the 7th grade I had this bully that kept picking on me and the high school students noticed so a couple of them that were my neighbors at home said here is what you do:
They told 'me' to go find "An equalizer", well there was this old house on the property that was falling down and 'i' found a 2 by 4 about 3' long.
I hid it up by where the high school set during lunch hour.
Here the dude come ready to pound my azz again (for-no-reason) and I ran an got the equalizer swung it across his head and he went down bleeding from his head [happens the 2 by 4 had a spike nail in one end
which ripped his scalp apart].
The high schoolers roared and yelled. I got sent to the principals office
and explained everything, he told me to go back to class and not worry about it.
3 stitches and I was never bothered again.
::Special tribute to - Jimmy Cummins 'my' neighbor!
I knew he'd cover 'my' azz!
or I wouldn't have had nerve enough to do it.

That is what is so evil about them. They take these weird out of ordinary tragedies and blow them out of reality. They make it seem to people that every other person on the street is a rapist, pedophile, murderer. It is complete horse crap and they push this irrational fear on to people all to drive up ratings so they can get payed. Not to mention how them pushing their opinions about the situations they talk about only hurts the possibility of proper trails. I feel their coverage of Casey Anthony trial and Jody Arias is a big factor why they got off. Not to mention Nacy Grace has numerous times been on TV claiming guilt without due process only to be proven wrong and that the supposed perpetrator of the crime that she was calling a lynching for was indeed innocent. All them HLN jerk-offs are just profiting off of tragedy and that to me makes them just as evil as them murders and rapist they act like they are against. Horrible horrible people they are.

Well Hoosier that seems a little extreme but I agree with the logic. When I was a kid I got bullied a few times. I was not small or weak but went to a Catholic school where I was quite and a loner along with being from the poorer part of my area. I got picked on because of that. I told my parents and they said " We can't help you with that. Only you can." My old man said walk away twice. If they keep it up after that make a tight fist and hit as hard as you can at the bridge of the nose. If the puke goes to get up pop him again in the eye socket. I remember asking if I'll get suspnded. He said yeah. A man accepts the consequences, but you wont be in trouble at home. What about his friends? He said they are bigger cowards than him and wont do anything most likely. What if I get beat up? That's the chance a man has to take. Even if you do get beat up you''l have the backing and respect of the other victims the next time. Plus you'll feel better about yourself win or lose. Most likely the bully is the softest ball of dough in the school. He's probably goona run crying straight to the principle to get you in trouble.
My old man was right about a lot of things.

No, his point is that bullies aren't nearly the bad asses they make you feel they are.
Correct Hoosier?

I believe I must suffer from PTSD from watching them in the past, so often as I did! I never thought of it in that ways that you are saying.....

I know bullies aren't bad asses.....I am so thankful my son doesn't get picked on and his School does not tolerate it!

Last summer he went to a Baseball camp and this punk little boy decided he didn't like my son for telling him to get back to his short stop position and later the boy lightly hit my son in the head with the bat and said he wanted to beat his head in for telling him to get back to short stop.....I thought are you kidding me???? Just for someone telling this kid that he's in the wrong position and get back to his position of being short stop????
I was so ticked and I am glad that my son stood his ground and went immediately to the coach and the boy was talked to and also, was not able to participate for the rest of the day!
I thought that was light punishment, for he could have seriously injured my son!
All I can say, I'm glad I wasn't there when it happened.....I didn't learn about it until I picked him up!
So now, I am close by due to mentally unstable 10 year olds that don't know how to act and parent's who don't give a sht!

If they truly are forcing themselves on you then yes, but bullies exist in both of our effed up political parties.
Giving some examples would be helpful.

I know, but the thought of some little punk trying to hurt my son on purpose with an aluminum bat is ridiculous!

I can't fault ya' for it getting to ya'. I'd have a hard time dealing with it myself. Just tell him to punk the little puke. Or maybe not, sticking up for yourself is being frowned upon these days.

Just the thought that a child would think of using a bat to do harm, sadly amazes me! It makes me think of what he must learn in his home when he doesn't like something!

Ring- a- ding- ding we have winner. In the public the self proclaimed liberals are 100x more rabid and much more aggressive in shoving their ideas down someones throat than anyone. Most private citizens who identify as conservative just want the government and other people to leave them alone. As people should be left.
In all actuality though both the GOP and them Dems are both out for the same goal. They are working together for the same goal.

Some kids are raised to be morons and not taught how serious their actions are. They in turn grow up to raise more morons and so on and so on. That is how we got people like Bloomberg, Pelosi, Bush, Cuomo, Palin the list goes on and on.
