And this is a general discussion. NOT a serious "meeting of the minds" - for that, go to a gun board. Lighten up!

The ignore feature is your friend. Honestly, this board has gotten so much better in the last week because of it. LOL.

The object is to neutralize the threat. You may be at a safe point to make that determination right around when the clip is empty. Firing once then trying to re-assess the situation may end with giving the threat to your well being the opportunity to attack.

NISD hasn't been looking too good as of late. which isn't exactly saying much...I hope the punishment is more than just sending these Turkeys to bed early without dessert..

Students shouldn't be carrying guns onto any campus. What was the purpose of having a gun on campus if they even had them? It's not about education, it's about safety. The lives of the kids at "bad" schools are just as important.

oh , but of course, we're all so concerned about the well-being of students in schools where taxpayer dollar resources are squandered such that education is priority um, 7, 8, or ten...

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you're saying. When a student brings a gun to school, the priority is safety. The students missed a few hours of class which is nothing compared to what could have happened. Bringing a gun to school is not acceptable at any school because innocent people can be hurt or killed. It sounds like you're saying that the lives of the poor, inner-city kids aren't as valuable as the lives of the middle class kids living on the north side. Some poor kids (like I used to be) do end up being productive citizens and some people born with a silver spoon in their mouth end up being criminals. To encourage students to bring guns to a poorer school instead is deplorable. A responsible adult would denounce that kind of behavior at any school. I'm sure there wasn't one parent concerned about their child missing class, but instead, they were probably worrying about their child's safety.
