    Exclamation “No Mas Pistolas”! “No Mas Pistolas”!



    THROW AWAY GUNS....THROW AWAY GUNS....THROW AWAY GUNS!!
    (with subtle personal comments added by QKShooter)

    Our society is increasingly surrounded by acts, images, and messages of violence. For instance, videogames and the media glorify violence. Violence does not discriminate between ethnicity and class. Yet despite that (excluding the war), most media focus and highlight the violence in the inner cities and on people of color. Movies and mass media perpetuate the notion that violence only occurs in places like Watts and amongst Blacks and Latinos. Further adding to this cycle of violence are the producers of such things as toy guns and violent video games. Students are bombarded with the notions that violence is not only cool, but also a part of their everyday life. At 99th Street Elementary School, 2nd grade students from Kimberly Min's class and 5th grade students from Laurence Tan's class finally decided enough was enough. In an attempt to create a safe school community, the 2nd and 5th graders organized themselves and took matters into their own hands.
    (Yeah...sure they did...you brainwashing liars )

    With the recent events of global and community violence, the students voiced their opinions and created actions toward change. At 99th Street School, numerous ice cream trucks would prey on students for their business after school. (WHAT??? Rogue Attack Ice Cream Truck Drivers In ATTACK Ice Cream Trucks PREYING on students after school...FORCING THEM TO SPEND ALL OF THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY ON ICE CREAM ) Droves of students would crowd around after school at these trucks throwing away whatever spare change and dollar bills they had. (OMG NO! Say It Isn't TRUE ) Among the candy and ice cream on the shelves were plastic toy guns. (GET THOSE TOY GUNS AWAY FROM OUR ICE CREAM!!! ) In a couple of instances, students purchased the guns and brought them on to the campus. Being that 99th Street School is a zero tolerance campus, the students were reprimanded. (If they only woulda bought Ice Cream insteada them there deadly toy guns they would not have needed ) That instance brought to life the greater problem surrounding the community at large.

    As the issues were discussed among both classes, the students started to make many connections to larger contexts. Students wrestled with the problems of buying toy guns and its eventual message of violence.(Forum Members PLEASE DO NOT BUY TOY GUNS...PLEASE BUY REAL ONES! ) Some students argued that if a person started to play with guns when they were little, then they might start to play with real guns later in life. (IS THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF US??? WHY O WHY DID MY MOMMY BUY ME THAT CAP GUN WHEN IS A WITTLE BOY???!!! I Hate my Mommy For Buyin' me that NEAT SIX SHOOTER COMPLETE WITH HOLSTER! ) Our community is already exposed to so much violence that the students were able to make the connections of how these toy guns contributed to the perpetual cycle of violence. Most recently, a former student and employee of our school was shot and killed near the school. (I THINK THE ICE CREAM TRUCK DRIVER DID IT! WHAT SAY YOU? ) His death, coupled with the recent war, heightened student awareness about the problems surrounding violence and safety at our school and in our community. Realizing this, the students felt they had to do something about the issue.
    (Right On Kids!)

    Students wrestled with the problems of buying toy guns and its eventual message of violence. Some students argued that if a person started to play with guns when they were little, then they might start to play with real guns later in life. (Oh My God I Hope Not! Say It Isn't True!?!)


    Many different ideas were discussed by both Ms. Min's and Mr. Tan's classes. The students decided to work together to try and make changes. The students organized and planned a rally in front of the school. They created signs that had messages of "no more guns," “no mas pistolas,” “stop selling guns," and other messages promoting nonviolence and safe schools. They chanted in both English and Spanish and as they marched up and down the street.
    (“No Mas Pistolas!” “No Mas Pistolas!” “No Mas Pistolas”!
    (NO MORE ICE CREAM! NO MORE ICE CREAM! NO MORE ICE CREAM!)
    (KILL THE ICE CREAM TRUCK DRIVER!... KILL THE ICE CREAM TRUCK DRIVER!)

    The first day of the protest, the ice cream truck left and more students became intrigued by the two classes' efforts. As other students joined the struggle, they became more aware of the issue. (Oh...The STRUGGLE of it all!) The students considered the first rally successful because the ice cream truck left and they were able to get their message out to other students who joined the effort and decided not to buy from the ice cream trucks. The students continued the pressure by hosting other rallies on the following Fridays in an attempt to let others know that they were serious and would not go away. Students urged other students not to buy from the ice cream trucks. (Im not buyin' any more Ice Cream EVER...Those SOBs MIXING FIREARMS with Ice Cream in order to TAINT little innocent kids and RUIN their Little Lives!) As successful as the demonstrations were, many students were keen to the issue of violence at large. (YOU SELL TOY GUNS WE WILL NOT BUY YOUR DAMN ICE CREAM! I'm sure those kids thought that one up all by themselves! )

    ...some 5th grade students questioned why they never saw ice cream trucks in areas like Beverly Hills. ( ) They recognized that the more affluent neighborhoods could keep the ice cream trucks away because of their political clout. (We will sue you you & go right to the Gov Arnold if these trucks show up near our posh homes!)


    Students realized that the ice cream trucks were only a small part of the problem. (NEXT WE'RE GOING AFTER THE NRA! First the toy ones THEN The Real Ones! We're Comin' For You Gun Lovers...When We Grow Up!)
    Many students realized that they could easily get toy guns almost anywhere: liquor stores, grocery stores, malls, and other nearby vendors. (THOSE DAMN TOY GUNS ARE EVERYWHERE...THEY WILL MAKE US KILL PEOPLE LATER ON IF WE BUY ONE NOW WHEN WE ARE LITTLE CHILDREN! PLEASE GET RID OF THEM...PLEASE!) While some 5th grade students questioned why they never saw ice cream trucks in areas, such as, Beverly Hills. They recognized that the more affluent neighborhoods could keep the ice cream trucks away because of their political clout. While the issue of social economic status related to a lot of other topics discussed in class, the focus was still on the immediate concern, the ice cream trucks.


    While some students started to question the effectiveness of their tactics,(THE SMART ONES) others decided to take their movement to the next level. Ms. Min's class wrote letters to Mayor Hahn about this problem. Mr. Tan's class continued to work on a plan to address the toy manufacturers and increase the awareness of others to boycott the purchase and manufacture of toy guns. The driving force for the students' ambitions were based upon their idea of what a safe school should be like. (huh?)

    The students have not been strangers to acts of violence around their community. The results of an informal poll showed that most students felt the safest at either their school or home (with school having a slight edge over homes). The students realized that the sale of toy guns at the school hindered school safety and went to great lengths to do something about it.

    (Well, I'm just SUPER IMPRESSED with these little tykes and this whole organized plan to rid their school property of toy guns & rogue, predatory Ice Cream Truck Drivers!) What Say You?

    One of these days there is going to be some kind of Anti Gun Proganda Campaign launched on my campus and I'm going to be the only one who says anything. Guess what'll happen to me...

    God this makes me sick. It's a violation of an educator's professional ethics to use your students like this.

    I'm embarassed to be a member of this profession when I see crap like this.

    I'm 100% with you on this.
    This story is so full of it that it's unreal.
    Like this one liner:
    Many students realized that they could easily get toy guns almost anywhere: liquor stores, grocery stores, malls, and other nearby vendors.

    2nd Graders admit going into the liquor stores to buy toy guns???

    2nd Grade through 5th Grade kids are roaming around Beverly Hills & just happened to notice that there were No Ice Cream Trucks there??? And...they got mad about that all by themselves???

    My father wouldn't let me have toy guns.

    I sometimes think that his restriction is what led me down the path to having a real one as a child - it was just as easy to hide as a toy.

    Oh...you started "concealment" early?

    I think that entire article is pretty much a fabrication job.
    Lib Lefters are great at creating the TRUTH to fit their warped belief system.
    It's so EASY for the antis to Play Dough mold little kids into whatever they want them to be...even if it's just for the camera shots.
    There are more holes in that story than in the "K" Zone of one of my "Good Day Targs"

    I noticed in the picture, that they seemed to be of one or two ethnic backgrounds. Am I seeing this wrong? or do I see something here? I'm NOT being racially bias with my reply.

    I don't know about your school district, but where I teach (4th largest district in the nation) this has been policy for the last forty years. Heck I grew up as a student in this very same system hearing the same B$. Now, I fight it everyday in my lesson plans by using the ISSUES and AGENDAS doctrine of education. Check and see if your district is using the STAR (Straight Talk About Risks) curriculum for "conflict resolution" and "gun safety." It's published by the Violence Policy Center (The BRADY BUNCH) and the schools pay dearly for it's use. But they could have the NRA's EDDIE EAGLE which is free.... And we all know the reasons that'll never happen.

    No kidding ExSoldier! I don't use my situation to push my agenda on a bunch of kids either because heaven forbid anyone come out of the public schools thinking for themselves...

    I'm going to go be angry by myself now where no one can hear me scream.

    All This Country Needs

    All This Country Needs is a few thousand more Euclidean Teacher Clones and we would be in very great shape.
    Lib Left teachers do the exact same thing to kids that "some" angry fighting divorced parents do to their own kids.
    They manipulate little children & make confused mental/emotional puppets out of them & it's truly sad.

    It's actually a LOT worse than that, in the inner city. I have students who've been told by both PASTORS and PARENTS that the Democrats and the LIBERALS are their only hope of living a "decent" life on earth. I have one kid who was terrified of voting Bush in 2000 because her mom told her if she did she'd be thrown out of the house and disowned. I kid you NOT! Whether the threat was real, the kid's fear certainly was.

    Ex

    I know that you are not kidding. That is what makes this so unreal. I am not a conspiracy theorist but, I do believe that there is a long range left-winger plan to phase out all firearms and shooters & hunters...by brain deadening the "adults of tomorrow" into believing that firearms (in general) are evil.
    Fill innocent little kids with loathing, fear & hatred at an early enough age (be it for guns or Republicans) & you've got them in your "back pocket" forever.

    Exclamation Conspiracy? YOU BET!

    I AM a conspiracy theorist and there is such a "plan" and it's almost completed. Bush #41 and Clinton combined have done more to damage the country in their 12 years than nearly anybody else in the prededing 70 years!

    It only makes sense. For the USA to become a viable part of any NWO, two things absolutely must happen, in no particular sequence:

    FIRST all U.S. citizens and residents must be unilaterally disarmed. This can happen in any number of different ways and we all know a variety of scenarios. One is New Orleans, if the liberals hold true to form.

    SECOND: The USA must be removed from the status of world's sole superpower. This might come as a confluence of natural disasters or multiple terrorist attacks, especially those which are WMD in nature, thereby destroying our economy and ability to make war due to lack of domestic production of resupply. We can also be bankrupted from within. That feat is nearly completed. If you want to learn more of this read this book:

    The Creature From Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. It's a total examination of the federal reserve and the banks and secret societies behind the "plan." It sounds completely boring (FEDERAL RESERVE BANK? UGH!!) but it reads like a great novel and each chapter has a complete summary at the end of each chapter. I loved it. Euc, you should pick this book up! Available from amazon.com.
