Well, I'm have liberal views and actually agree with you on the gun issue. I got a call from the principal when my son (7 at the time) and his friend played pretend guns at school.

My husband tells about bringing guns to school in the 80s for rabbit and squirrel hunting at a friend's house after school.

Still, I'm thinking that school shootings hadn't happened in the 70s, and society has to respond to its current crises.

Back in the day--I often went hunting after school.  My brother and I would walk through town, rifles/shotguns in hand, pockets full of shells, and hunting dogs trotting beside us.  On the weekends we would often be gone for the entire weekend, camping out, no supervision of any kind. 

Now days I would be surrounded by cops before I could walk 3 blocks and arrested for illegal possession of a firearm, have the gun confiscated, and also cited for  failure to keep my dog on a leash.

Life is a school.  What have you learned?   :brian:      The greatest danger to our society is apathy, vote in every election!

Naw...way before that, some guy with pointy ears wrote a book about how to deal with children with only positive reinforcement and that it was fine for the kids to do whatever they want.  Dr. Spock or some such guy.

It was only after years of that brainwashing that they got to the point where it's wrong to give a child any sort of negative reinforcement.

Ive said it before. Kids have developed chronic allergies to leather and wood.  I have never forgotten the sound of a leather belt clearing denim belt loops or the place where mom kept the wooden reinforcement device. Being a policman for nearly 15 years, it sickens me when people call the cops cuz Lil Johnny,Jill or whoever refuses to get out of bed to go to school. My dad told you once that it was time to wake up, he didnt have to tell me twice.
