Today my grandson was over the house. He was looking through some of my stuff and found some patches I have of different gun patches I have. He asked me if he could have a couple to sew on his new school back pack my daughter bought him. One was in a world of compromise some men don't with H&K with a MP5 in the middle. I told him I didn't think that was a good idea for a school back pack. And told him no.Everyone agrees with that right

I agree it wouldnt go over well but I dont agree that you shouldnt do it.

You are probably saving him a bunch of trouble.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 8:22:17 PM EDT
As long as he didn't brag about it I doubt most of the teachers and facalty would have even noticed.

It's ridiculous that he could have a 'gay and proud' patch or Snoop Dog sticker on his bookbag, but we can't allow them to have patches that represent the hobby of many patriots.

We live in a world where kids get expelled and sent to psychological counsiling, for drawing a picture of a stick man with a gun. An MP-5 patch on his back pack, would probably be cause, for some teacher to move to have the kid removed from his parents and placed in liberal nongun-owning foster care.

It's so stupid as to be unbelievable, but thats the way the world is now.

As sad as it is, you were protecting him. When he's old enough to understand, explain why you had to say no to his request and you will be innoculating him against socialism.

+1

Then give him the patches to stick on his range bag.

From one grandpa to another...

Go ahead and do it, because the heat is going
to come down on your daughter or son or your
son-in-law or your daughter-in-law what ever.

When they try to explain this shit... Blame it on grandpa

That's our job.

I agree that that post was difficult to read and understand because you did not use "quotation marks".
If your grandson goes to a typical, liberal public school you are right.

One of my PE shirts was a HK shirt with a huge MP5 on the back no one cared.

Thanks for that he is such a good kid , very respectful of his elders and loves to shoot a 22 when I take him to the hay fields.He is going in the 6th grade And I just didn't want him being sent home for some thing that he shouldn't be sent home for.

Most schools with 'Zero Tolerance' policies will crap themselves at the mere sight of a PICTURE or crayola sketch of a gun. Put it on if you want to highlight their absurdity.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 8:44:28 PM EDT
I seriously doubt that it would be a problem at all. As long as he doesn't start trouble he would be fine with the patches.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 8:46:04 PM EDT
Get him some army or air force patches, they look cool without all those distasteful gun images that can drive children to violence.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 8:51:56 PM EDT
my son went to kindegarten all year last year wearing shirts that his uncle sent him from the marines. Guns, skulls, snakes, etc...

of course, he does go to a country one-room school house with only 6 other students and one teacher for grades k-8.

he's the only 7yo i know that can name the first 25 presidents. this year he will learn the rest.

yes, it's worth the drive to take him!!!

He has my old Eagle Globe and Anchor pin on his old book bag

I'm so glad I graduated before Columbine
In 11th grade I got caught in the hall once by my social studies teacher while me and some friends were diagramming a "gasoline device" we were going to blow up in my woods. he laughed at my crappy drawing (I have no art skills at all) and that was it
post columbine I would have been arrested for plotting to kill my fellow students and destroying the school
other kids knew I downloaded the Anarchist Cookbook in the library (woohoo we had 1 computer with dial up access) and were talking about it and my math teacher, who was also my senior year home room teacher since AP Calc was first period, overheard and for the rest of the year they'd all joke about it and if they some me with some floppies they ask what kind of bomb plans and shit I was going to download that day.
Again, post Columbine I'd be in a world of shit for doing that in school.

Gun related patches would cause as much trouble as my examples would today, but they'd still cause him a bunch of trouble. And likely result in a visit to the family by child protective services and who knows what else

I agree that you would be protecting him from trouble, but you're not inoculating him from socialism, but instead teaching him to go along with the politically correct mindset.

The sheep all think alike, eh. Not flaming you, I wouldn't put a small child through that crap either, as they aren't old enough to understand it yet.....just had to put my .02 cents worth in about your choice of verbs.

Well, here in va you probably wouldnt get in trouble for it!

My daughter has an AR15.com "Team Ohio" t-shirt she wears at school - never been an issue with it, but I wouldn't be surprised if she's the exception and not the norm anymore.
