I teach at an alternative school. We have no security except for a deputy sherif that I can call on a walkie-talkie.

It is illegal for me to have a firearm with me or even in my car.

Last year two of our students were arrested for first degree murder.

Why is it this way? Because ministrators are pussies.

1) The age is at 18 and doesn't prevent people under 18 from getting guns.

2) At 18 I can vote, buy a car, buy a house, get married, join the army (or even get drafted AGAINST MY WILL) and use multi-million dollar tanks, jets, and machine guns, but I can't own a frigging gun until I'm 21? Bullshit.

In response I think the only action that makes sense it to ban kids from schools. In reality it's the only way to stop the violence.
