Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

Re: My Daugter's homework sent back, contained "WEAPONS"

my twin sons are 23 now. when they were in the second grade i came home one day to the darndest mess of cut up magazines scatterred across the living room floor. all of my NRA magazines and peterson hunting were in tatters. seems they had a homework assignment to make a poster of things they liked. one was doing guns and the other was doing knives. i was pleased when they came home a few days later and both had "A's" on their assignments. i guess this would prob not be 'PC' today, but you know what i would say? F**K'm....let them get an F or whatever the school thought appropriate and then explain to them that we dont play by those rules. the only hope we have to keep any of our sanity is to fight back against this PC ********.

So you are saying that the private schools are not as bad when it comes to this type of issue? I may have to consider that as an option.

dogdinger, I like your response about to the school. You would just need to sit down with the child and really let them understand that they did nothing wrong even though they are the ones getting punished for the situation. Thing to do would be to turn the assignment in again unchanged but go in with the child to school and work the teacher over.

The issue that I heard about in California recently went something like this. I probably do not have the story 100% correct but you will get the jist of what happened.

It was Easter break and this guy took his son out to the dessert for the week. While they were out there they did a lot of shoot and the son was getting pretty proficient with his 22LR. When they got back to school the following week the assignment was something like show and tell of what you did the week before. The son brought in a zip lock bag of spent 22LR cases and a target that had good groups on it. The school suspended the kid for bringing gun paraphernalia to school and called the parents.

So the father went into the school and tried to explain that there was nothing that was of any danger. The school of course had a zero policy on guns. The father took his son out to ice cream and explained to him he did nothing wrong. The father then started having the NRA pamphlets delivered to the school about being safe with guns and all that info. Not promoting the NRA just guns safety. I guess a couple months later he got a call from the principle that he need to stop having the information sent to the school or they were going to get some sort of legal council. So I guess he backed off.

Jump forward a year or two and a kid in the same school did bring a pistol to school and it was found by one of the teachers. The teacher dropped the magazine and handed the pistol to another kid to hold while she dealt with the situation with the first child. Well, she did not know about gun safety and did not check the pipe. The second kid shot another kid because the teachers were too ignorant to learn about gun safety. I would think that with all the school shooting going on out there the teachers would at least want to know how to make a firearm safe. So incase you have an issue you understand what you need to do.

Anyway, it is pretty depressing.

Re: My Daugter's homework sent back, contained "WEAPONS"

So I have to ask; what do we do about it? This is OUR country, it didn't get like this over night, how do we turn back the tide? If you think that it's going to end there, forget it. It won't be long until people that are interested in long range shooting are viewed with suspicion. After all, think of the danger of having people with high powered rifles and the ability to hit dinner-plate-sized targets out past 1000 yards running around?

Something you must remember, the people that enacted policies like the aforementioned "zero tolerance about guns" policy do not understand us. They believe that the government is the logical choice to solve the ills of the world. They fear and hate anyone that shows individual initiative enough to learn the discipline of shooting, especially those that have mastered LRH. Why? It's because we remind them that there are people around that can still think and act for themselves, that can provide for their own families, and can walk unafraid through life because they have learned to deal with life's tests as they come up.

At best, these people suffer from low self-esteem because they are inadequate. That's why they feel that anyone who shows an independent streak must be controlled.

At worst, they know that we have a line that we will not allow the government to cross, and they are doing their best to insure that that independent streak is "educated" out of our children.

Sorry for the rant, but this really steams me.

OK, I'm better now.

I remember in 6th grade I took my new Birthday gift into school for "Show and Tell"
It was a Savage 110 chambered in 30-06 that my father had bought me.
Granted it was 24 years ago, but it shows you how things are changing for us.
