    A thought about the absurd school suspensions over "guns"

    Something dawned on me last night. Did it ever occur to anyone that maybe the schools know exactly what they are doing when they suspend kids over fingers and pop tarts in the shapes of guns? We yell "Where is the common sense" But I think they are doing it to scare kids about guns using negative reinforcement so they grow up afraid of them. They have given up on us adults, so they start with the children to make them terrified of them by the time they are of age. Bans via attrition.

    What do you think?

    The AG has already stated we're two generations away from removing guns from the public...... all 'we' have to do is 'teach this' to our kids.

    This is exactly why WE need to be proactive in teaching gun safety and gun sportsmanship to the youth in our communities. WE need to be the ones working with boy scouts, church groups and starting youth gun clubs. WE can counter this if we would. It means we have to invest ourselves in it!

    I'm going to be starting a new men/boys ministry of our church to take kids out hunting and shooting at the range. I have some men in the church that want to get NRA certified and then find these kids that need mentors and train them. Half of the boys in our community have no relationship with their dad, and their mom's aren't going to do this.

    Some of us already knew why schools do this. I'm glad more people are figuring it out.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    It's not all schools, it's the area mostly. My daughter is studying entrepreneurism. She mentioned to her teacher that I have a small side business. Teacher asked what I did. My daughter proudly told her that I make holsters. Teacher just said, "Oh, OK." We still like our guns 'round here.

    Yes, it's called Indoctrination and reprogramming. They are teaching our children to fear and hate guns. They did the same thing with cigarette ads.

    They are succeeding. Remember the little boy (who's dad is in the military) who got kicked out of school for drawing a picture of a gun? All of the other little kids are thinking "Wow. I hate guns because they must be really bad if you get kicked out of school for that."

    It's really very simple.

    I'm glad you finally woke up on March 8, 2013.

    In case you missed it, this has been going on for many, many years.

    It is not all schools, yet. It is growing though. It just recently happened in Sumter, SC; so it can happen anywhere. I beleive it starts in the education curriculum at colleges.

    Well I'm sure my daughter may be told things like this in school, but she'll be the one to argue to keep guns, I can tell already. She's not yet 3, and knows that guns are not to be touched, especially if Dad's not around. Yet she knows that "when she gets older" she'll get to go shooting too. She loves to look at my paper targets when I get home, and likes to play the shooting games in arcades (I found that out this past Sunday).
