This is what you deserve when you coddle idiocy and push political bull****.

Superintendent Robert W. Runcie, a proponent of radical left-wing gun control measures, announced that students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will only be allowed to bring clear backpacks to school after spring break and will be required to wear a new ID badge at all times.

The same Superintendent that did willfully and intentionally coddle crime-committing students on school property, did enter into an "agreement" with the sheriff and judges not to arrest said persons, and thus did intentionally fail to remove Cruz from the campus and did participate in him not being arrested on multiple occasions prior to his rampage, any such arrest for any felony that was actually prosecuted and upon which he was convicted, or commitment under the Baker Act would have prevented him from legally buying a gun.

See, the problem is that bad guys don't pay attention to laws.  Including alleged "common sense" gun laws.  Therefore, if you demand disarmament of the good guys in any form or fashion, at any time and in any place the only other alternative is to make the school a prison where utterly nothing can be concealed, ever, that might be threatening.

Why?  Because the bad guys don't give a **** about the law jackass!

The truth is that only a good guy who decides to be armed and take care of business (unlike those spineless, worthless tax sponges you call "cops" down there) stops an armed criminal *******.  Which, I remind you, was demonstrated just this last week in Maryland where a not spineless police officer ran to the threat and shot the assailant dead.

Yes, the bad guy still managed to kill one.  One.  He didn't kill 17, and the reason he didn't is that the cops did their job.

Unlike your cops, who David Hogg lionizes (his father is ex-FBI) and advocates for the removal of your right to defend yourself even when the tax sponges intentionally, willfully did not do their jobs and that resulted in 17 of your friends being dead.

Now, since you threw in your hat with him, instead of excoriating and excommunicating him from your little social band down there, you get screwed and treated like prisoners -- because that is all that is left when you give up your right to self-defense.

When you stop being a child and decide to be an adult you will then recognize that the only person responsible for your own safety and those whom you love is you.

You will also realize that over the history of man only one device has made the 100lb 18 year old girl the equal of the 220lb male brute intent on raping her, or you the equal of any jackass who intends to kill you.

It is called a gun and since only you can respond quickly enough when it matters the Second Amendment exists.  Reclaim your right to self-defense, demand that all persons over the age of 18 be able to own and carry whenever and whatever they wish in whatever manner they wish so as to be able to stop criminal jackasses intending you harm and eject David Hogg and the rest of those in DC today who intend to and already have rendered you prisoners in your own school from your midst.

Send them to North Korea where their ideas will find plenty of welcome.

It is still unbelievable to me that parents willfully put up with this ****. I thought public schools seemed like prison 12 years ago when my kids started in. That is why I pulled them out and they have never been back.

JFC people. YOUR kids, the ones NOT shooting their classmates, are being treated like the criminals. How are you OK with this? And no, it is no accident. It is social conditioning at its finest, to get them used to being compliant and assumed guilty. Gee, disarm them too, and what separates them from living under tyranny?

Ooooh! Stylish CLEAR backpacks and ID badges. So, some dude determined to wreak havoc at that school can't carve out the inside of his big fat biology textbook and hide an "evil gun" and extra ammo within?? What's next Mr. Superintendent, TSA like screening at every entrance, metal detectors, pat downs and naked body scanners?

Quote from the all-knowing David Hogg: "After we come back from Spring Break, they're requiring us all to have clear backpacks,,,it's unnecessary. It's embarrassing for a lot of the students."

Right, your classmates are dead, but at least they weren't embarrassed.

I've read that he has apparently been rejected by every college he's applied to, so far. I can't imagine any potential employer not putting him on their do-not-hire list for demonstrating his outright duplicity. He's obviously not in the least concerned about keeping students safe.

Maybe the school should double-down and put GPS trackers in the new student ID's.

Those tweets are comical. They don't want the school to turn into a prison, but what sort of tyranny would be necessary to implement ""Common Sense Gun Control""?

"you get screwed and treated like prisoners"..

That's how Marxsts roll. The school system trains the kids to be obedient little Marxists who fear and hate guns.

The public school teachers no longer teach how guns are actually the most important and useful tool in keeping the government in check and keeping the peace. My history teacher(s) taught why the Second Amendment was crucial to protecting the other Amendments: "When government(s) collect guns they also collect the other freedoms shortly thereafter", my History Teacher said.

Nowadays, the teachers are instigating gun grabs instead of teaching the value of a well armed people... That would have NEVER happened when and where I went to school.

My advice: stockpile guns, gold, grub and other goods as an insurance policy, because the Marxists are going to destroy what's left of the country --- and Trump isn't going to save America, let alone make it great, again.

In fact, Trump is surrounding himself with a war-cabinet. It's looking more and more like Trump is going to take America to war. Some say Trump is just posturing, but I say he's not bluffing. Trump is showing the world how he's surrounded by tough guys. Is it a bluff? Personally, I wouldn't count on it.

There's a situation ddeveloping. And anybody who doesn't have a little "gun insurance" might be at a disadvantage in more ways than one.

These snowflakes and their handlers need to be cornered into answering some simple questions about their "common sense" gun confiscation they are demanding. Specifically, there are probably going to someone between 10 million and 30 million people who will never, under any "law", threat or circumstances, register or turn in their firearms. What is to be done to them?" There are (best guess) between 300 million and 400 million legally owned firearms and over a trillion rounds of ammo in the hands of American citizens. Those people aren't the snowflakes' problem. If the snowflakes want to see what a real problem is, keep tap dancing on that minefield.

Not sure what the new schools look like in Florida, but the ones they are building here are almost indistinguishable from minimum/medium security prisons. Industrial light brown brick facade, tiny windows that can't be opened. Really, the only difference from the outside is razor wire, and the "exercise yard" at the school is much smaller. Oh, and they can't even keep drugs out of prisons and people regularly are raped and murdered there. People should choose wisely before the gleefully hand over their own rights and demand others to the same "...for the children."

Karl, I don't think you mentioned wheelchairs or potato chips as things more deadly than rifles, but I must refer everyone to this:

We must ban potato chips (or at least have price controls), lest the elderly and infirm begin dying <i>en masse</i>.

I saw yesterday one school principal advocating arming the students with rocks to throw at those with a gun that come into a school and start shooting. Now unless you are supplying a Sling Shot to go with that, it all laughable.

Clear backpacks at a school that doesn't cooperate with police on misdemeneanors, like theft. If I'm a thief, the new window shopping bags just saved me a ton of time needlessly rifling through backpacks that don't have anything of interest.

What I really want to know is who's brother, cousin, etc is selling these to the school. You know they are going to rip open every month or so. Sounds like someone just found another cash cow to milk.

The end result of everything the Nanny State advocates want is something like old East Germany, the USSR or North Korea. (Maybe Venezuela would be a better example.) The US would not have the economy it currently has (as bad as that is) if it ends up a medium security prison. All those dumb ****s see themselves as Kim Jong Whackadoodle, not as the peasant starving in a hut.

It is a great pity that they cannot suffer the success of their dreams, but I don't wish the results on everyone else.

If only someone would invent some device that would aid in a persons defense, capable of slinging projectiles at a higher rate of speed with even more accuracy than a rock, that could be used effectively by virtually anyone with a brain and a finger...
