The Problem with the Implementation

First the background —

PALMER, Mass. (CNN) — A plastic LEGO-sized gun caused a disturbance on a Old Mill Pond Elementary School bus Friday morning.

Mieke Crane is the mother of the 6-year-old kindergarten student who brought the gun on the bus.

“I think they over-reacted totally. I totally do,” said Crane.

Another student on the bus saw the toy and yelled to the driver.

“She said he caused quite a disturbance on the bus and that the children were traumatized,” said Crane.

Here is a pic of the nefarious weapon —

Compliments: Legal Insurrection

As a concept the idea of zero tolerance of REAL weapons in schools for other than authorized personnel trained in their use I have no qualms with. We taxpayers send the next generation to learn so that they can be productive future taxpayers. Not to be participants in a reality show version of Lord of the Flies. But lets get serious here! One is more likely to be injured getting a paper cut opening the packet to retrieve `the weapon` than the weapon itself. And if you were traumatized by THAT then truly mental health is in your future, and it is not about the weapon.

The issue here is not the concept, it the implementation. Yes zero tolerance for a real weapon that could cause real harm to someone. A real gun. A real knife. The problem is, since the Liberals control the school systems in this country they are applying rules the only way they know how — ban it all — no thought required. And there ladies and gentlemen is the core of the problem. Liberals do not want to think or have others think independently as to a proper conclusion. But it goes even deeper, it is an admission by school administration at the top that individual educators are incapable of proper decision making.

Which begs the observation — If they are incapable of proper decision making then they are not capable of proper instruction to pupils.

And here is a higher ed bonus for you.

    Darrell Issa posted this on his fb page today and he’s getting blasted in the comments. Wonder if he’ll bother to read them:

    MAKING SURE AMERICAN INNOVATORS CAN STAY & CONTRIBUTE TO U.S. ECONOMY: Last week, Darrell introduced the SKILLS Visa Act which will increase the number of annual visas issued to high-skilled foreign workers and grant more green cards to foreign-born students who have earned advanced degrees from U.S. universities in science, technology, mathematics and engineering.

    ‘LIKE’ and ‘SHARE’ if you agree with Darrell that it is vital for America to ensure that the next generation of innovators educated here in American can stay in America.

    TLS – I agree. It’s far easier for a foreign born on a green card to get into med. school than a native born. Most of the H1B visa holders are run-of-the-mill programmers and six of the ten companies with the most H1B visa holders are headquartered in India.

    Like most establishment Republicans, Issa is more interested in taking care of contributors and friends than middle class Americans.

    If that lego gun traumatized you should just be put down now, save the taxpayers money.

    There is alot to be said about the observation. Sadly its not legal in all 57 states. Course if you have an `in` with Holder maybe one could get away with it… 🙂

    This is pretty funny, or maybe it just struck me that way.

    Egyptian jihadists call for attacks in Shiite countries

    “The statement is the latest sign of growing tensions over the Syrian war between al Qaeda and like-minded jihadists on one side, and the Assad regime, Iran, and Hezbollah on the other.”
    Yeah lets get in the middle of that fighting on what has become the side of AQ. 🙄
    Hezbollah\Iranian jihadis and AlQaeda jihadis killing one another…all while straining unwritten cooperation agreements between Iran and AQ proper, where exactly is the problem for the US in letting this continue (at least within the border of Syria)?

    Former “Club Gitmo” Guest Behind Attack Against Red Cross.

    “Today’s attack against the Red Cross and last week’s attack against the International Organization for Migration were likely organized by a committee run by Abdul Hafiz, a Taliban commander who previously was in US custody at Guantanamo Bay before he was released in December 2009. Hafiz promptly returned to the Taliban and now runs a committee that deals with ransoms and engagement with nongovernmental organizations.

    Will some reporter care to ask the White House to comment on this case or in general talk about the 35-40% (that we know of) recidivism rate among past gitmo detainees? Yeah I didn’t think so.

    I have said for years that eventually the only response US forces will have to AQ types is `kill on sight` OoE’s. BC’s Pitt Bull as Collie series fits AQ types to a tea.

    “An air of mystery has surrounded the FBI shooting of Ibragim Todashev, 27, since it occurred in Todashev’s apartment early on the morning of May 22. The FBI said in a news release that day that Todashev, a former Boston resident who knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during an interview with several law enforcement officers. ”

    Yeah, and now we find out that the guy was unarmed at the time of the shooting and that there was not one agent but several at the scene. What? Several agents of the FBI, supposedly trained in physical arts, can’t constrain an unarmed man? If that is the case, they don’t belong amongst the public and should be removed from the force and disarmed. (That’s regardless of the fact the perp was probably dirty.)
