Yow, imagine if those big, dumb, aggressive kids from school had all been
toting handguns legally on school grounds? They'd be the ones attracted to
it. I went to a rural school; those farm boys know which end is the
dangerous end. Some of those same kids are too dumb to understand cause and
effect (remember back to the real idiots). Teens in general are not noted
for long term thinking.

I wouldn't be sending my kids to that school!
