    I hope this is a fake. So much stupidity. so much.

    I AM a math teacher at Brockton High School, the site of a school shooting earlier this month.

    Current school security procedures lock down school populations in the event of armed assault. Some advocate abandoning this practice as it holds everyone in place, allowing a shooter easily to find victims.

    An alternative to lockdown is immediate exodus via announcement. Although this removes potential hostages and makes it nearly impossible for the shooter to acquire preselected targets, it unfairly rewards resourceful children who move to safety off-site more shrewdly and efficiently than others.

    Schools should level playing fields, not intrinsically reward those more resourceful. A level barrel is fair to all fish.

    Some propose overturning laws that made schools gun-free zones even for teachers who may be licensed to securely carry concealed firearms elsewhere. They argue that barring licensed-carry only ensures a defenseless, target-rich environment.

    But as a progressive, I would sooner lay my child to rest than succumb to the belief that the use of a gun for self-defense is somehow not in itself a gun crime.

    Sometimes I sit here with a reply box open for minutes trying to come up with something that the censor filter won't scrub and still gets the point across with ample disdain.

    All I ended up with this times is What a ******* ****** bag.

    Your principals should ensure that you are the last of your kind.

    First, I am perpetually bothered that crazy liberals are the only ones who get to use the word "progressive" to describe themselves. I think that expanding concealed carry laws is progressive. Secondly, using the words "succumb to the belief" implies that people who believe such are in some way ill.

    This is exactly why.....................they'll lose in the end. Oh, it may be a fierce battle, but they'll lose.

    If nothing else, wait until his child is old enough to understand the concepts in play. And the father's value of his "ideals", over that of his child's safety.

    Just wait.

    wtf.... i went to a ghetto highschool that got its fair share of shootings, drivebys and guns being found at school. I think that teachers should be able to bring guns to school if they have the right licenses.

    This guy is out of touch with reality. But this has been hashed out before. My opinion won't change.

    I've heard that argument used before by a leftish talk show host, usually it's right where they run out of coherent, realistic debate.
    Typically it's always a person who has never came close to having their mortality threatened and with little real life experience (outside the university).

    This is Quincy where it is impossible to get a LTC for all lawfull purpose which is a concealed carry license. And extremely difficult to impossible to get any kind of license which would allow someone to even buy a gun period. There is a different mindset on guns in the cities around Boston.

    Many people are willing to die for their beliefs. Antis are willing to let others die for theirs.

    The sad part is him telling the predators that he and his family are unarmed and prey. I bet he even believes that dialing 911 is going to get him an immediate response.

    Best Wishes! Pecos Bill out.

    Y'all are either not reading carefully, or are slow-witted. "A level barrel is fair to all fish"? Schools should "not reward those ... more resourceful"? It's clearly satire.

    You need a license and must pass a test to drive a car but any asshat can have a child. I wonder how the kid feels knowing his father has such a disregard for his life. I smell a lifetime of therapy coming for this kid.
