Anti-Gun Hysteria

Is it warping our kids?

It’s not necessary to plot progressive indoctrination with other true believers; they already know what to think and what to do, and from whom to take their cues. At the moment, that would be Mr. Obama and other members of his administration on the permanent campaign trail. This time, they are specifically campaigning against the Second Amendment.

As powerful as political motivation might be, the faddish nature of education is equally compelling. For some time, “zero tolerance” policies of one kind or another have enjoyed substantial popularity.

The zero tolerance policy most familiar to the public is the “gun free” school zone, which for some produces feelings of safety. Unfortunately, like all zero tolerance polices, this is a complete failure, actually encouraging attacks rather than enhancing safety. Those who need to “feel safe” cannot admit this obvious reality lest their belief system come crashing down, so they redouble their efforts, striking out at even imaginary threats and guns.

Understanding this sort of thinking, it is easy to realize that such people think nothing of applying a zero tolerance policy prohibiting actual firearms to not only toys bearing a slight resemblance to firearms, but to depictions of firearms and even imaginary weapons. Thus have elementary-aged children been punished for pointing fingers at each other and fighting imaginary heroic battles for mankind. Thus is childhood warped and wrenched from children.

Some of these bizarre incidents are the direct result of human confusion or incompetence. School systems have multiple levels of management that theoretically can avoid abuses in student discipline. Take the case of the five year-old girl who dared think of blowing bubbles on her friend and herself. Even if her teacher could not tell the difference between a Hello Kitty bubble gun — a toy the girl left at home — and a real weapon, and even if she could not tell the difference between five year olds playing and a threat of serious bodily harm or death, what’s the principal’s excuse? What’s the excuse of the assistant superintendent and the superintendent and the members of the school board?

They’re morons, who rely on feelings instead of thought?

More and more, it appears that sending your kid to a public school is malparenting, particularly if it’s a boy.

Also, as a commenter over there points out, these people can’t be said to be college educated. They’re merely college degreed.

Oh, good lord:

If your children express that they are troubled by today’s incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week. In general, please remind them of the importance of making good choices.

These people shouldn’t be allowed within a hundred yards of a child.

Jeeeez:

Officials said that even though it was not a real security situation, everybody in the school system did what they should in light of the reported threat, The Times reported.

Yes, apparently, if “doing what they should” means being moronic and hysterical.

    “Is it warping our kids?”

    Yes, and that’s the point.

    You make a mistake if you think this is all just some big misunderstanding. The education industry is involved in a deliberate effort that they call “denormalizing gun ownership.”

    They reason that if they can instill fear of guns at a very young age (either fear of guns themselves or fear of the consequences of having a gun), the children will 1) pressure their parents to get rid of their guns, 2) refuse to have guns when they get older, and 3) vote for gun bans and gun confiscation laws when they are of age.

    They’re playing the long game.

      …..any yet to think that all the indoctrination Ms. Stubblegsnobra toils so desperately to instill get flushed down the toilet 30 seconds after Lil’ Johnny gets Home and fires up Call of Duty on his X-Box. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Yuppers to all of this, they know exactly what they are doing. This isn’t about child safety never was, they want our guns, all of our guns, every last one. They are just as you say playing the long game.

    Children learn more than what’s in the official lesson plans. In these cases, kids are learning that their teachers and school principals are morons who can’t be trusted. Boys in particular are learning that they aren’t welcome in school.

    And they’re right.

    Child abuse to further their lefty political agenda. What kind of person would deliberately hurt a defenseless child? Sociopaths are in charge of the school systems.

    “They’re morons, who rely on feelings instead of thought?”

    It’s not that they don’t think, it’s that they FEEL about everything first.

    And feelings are powerful and confusing if you don’t STOP to THINK. The people I know who are hard core Leftys, even the few in my own family, rarely if ever stop to think about ANYTHING.

    They always lead with, “…but who would you FEEL…”, or something like, “…but I always feel like…”, or “…I can’t even imagine how ir MUST FEEL to…”.

    The other side of them is when you disagree with their ideals or ideas, THEN you get, “…I think conservatives should be locked up or SHOT!”, “..the world would be a better place without any (R)’s I think”.
