    This crap has bee going on for some time now. The DB's who "educate" our kids are the most far out left wing fringe. The define "hoplophobe". This is nothing more that socialist indoctrination at its worst.

    I used to draw guns in school all the time. Nobody thought anything of it. Granted, I don't live in Canada.

    Is it illegal to own a gun? That's what I get from this article. The man was let go because no gun was found.

    What a load of sh!t! I wonder if that father will contact a lawyer over his and his families tratment. I would.

    Had an incident back in November in which my stepdaughter, who was 14, took one of my G&A mags with her to school, and was given detention for reading it in study hall due to it "representing guns":confused:. Her mother and I were called and told to talk to the school principle and the SRO. Living in a town of less than 1500 people, we know both of them, wife works at the school, principal was one of my teachers, and I went to school with the SRO. Aparently, firearms literature is forbiden in this district because "it may provoke another student into bringing a gun to the school and possibly shooting other students. It simply can not be allowed." My response (after getting my G&A back!) was simply, " If a student is going to bring a gun to school AND shoot other students and teachers, it would not be due to seeing a magazine. It would be due to poor parenting, a lack of firearms education, and p!ss poor storage of the guns in their parents house. Funny thing, I was raised with them, as were my mother and father, and we never shot anyone. We will be leaving now, and I can assure you this will not happen again."

    The principal got very pale. The SRO smiled, had to bite back a laugh, and nodded in agreement. As for my kid's detention, it ended early that time.

    I guess if you drew an airplane, you would be possessing a weapon of mass destruction. God help the poor kid who drew a mushroom.........

    Some of my liberal friends do push an issue way too far.................

    I've had a discussion with a canadian guy at work bout there gun laws. It isn't illeagal, but if owned one it would be register so they would know about it. since he didn't have one aka no registration they prolly over reacted and thought he was harboring illegal weapons. To take your handgun to the range in canada you have to call local LEO's and let them know you are taking your handgun off the your property. even if the range is across the street

    Wow. I'd bet that kids that read G&A or American Hunter or American Rifleman are less likely to commit crimes with guns. So the school should be happy that good kids are reading good magazines.

    Between my graduation and my stepdaughter's enrolment, we had a superintendant from the NYC metro area decide to move to our end of the state. Needless to say, a lot has changed since then. The current pricipal is also from the other end of the region, IE grew up liberal in one of the bigger cities, in WNY. He is a decent person, If you can get past the fact that he is a liberal.

    T\U! That's how I feel about it too. I grew up with gun mags, guns in a locked cabinet that I had a key for, ammo, and hunting gear in my room and I never even consider using a gun to solve my "problems". The funny part is 2 years after I graduated, a list of warning signs for potential school shooters was released. I was able to answer yes to most of the signs on that list. Loner, listens to "dark music", has an understanding of guns and how they work, talks about guns in his\her group of peers (usually no more than a group of four in total), The only one that I didn't say yes to was, " Seems to have no compassion for those around him and\or is abusive to other people or animals." Oh wait, I'm a hunter. I guess I could say yes to that!:rolleyes:

    There was a shooting in my senior year, not at the school though, at another kids house. It was ruled accidental in the end, and the kid who shot the other was 18 and raised in an anti household. The one who got shot was raised in a pro household, the gun used was his dad's and it was not secured. Both involed were close friends of mine, and it drove the point home to me that,
    #1, If you are not in control of the weapon via direct contact or use, secure it. Sh!t happens, but is often preventable.
    #2,Knowledge IS the #1 preventative. Educate your kids and take the mystery away.
    That is why from age 7 on my stepdaughterwas trained in the operation, ande safe use of every gun in my possesion, at first against her mother and father's wishes. In time they understood why, and now she competes in a trap league and goes target shooting with us. I am proud to say that so far she has a 100% saftey record, and I don't ever see that changing.:)

    That's crazy. I brought a Midway USA magazine to school once and the most liberal teacher there saw it and then did nothing. That is crazy!

    Times have changed, and in some parts for the better.

    My dad's gun cabinet did not have a lock, but none of us kids would have even dreamed about opening that cabinet much less removing something with out dad's express approval. And most of us kids were hunter safety trained.

    Today, I would not think of having unsecured guns in the house...they would be in my direct control or locked up, no exceptions.

    With these tragic events at schools, all gun owners need to be concerned and we need to help find workable ways to prevent or reduce these tradgedies....if we don't, the anti folks will do it and then all of us responsible owners lose out. Grousing and moaning won't do it, so we need to take action and to support reasonable levels of control and responsibility, and I think this can be done without creating an undefended nanny state.

    I would have gotten my dad arrested about 150 times and what would they do if he had a gun. When did that become illegal.
