Once Upon A Time In America…

…guns were welcome in schools and weren’t the embodiment of fear for an emasculated society that thinks it is evolved enough to avoid some natural laws, a society that sees the NRA as the downfall of modern civilization and the organized extermination of human beings in the womb supported by NARAL as “progress”.

  1. Yeah Utah, the only thing feared in 1942 was dictators, totalitarianism, and fascism.

    Today, those are all the rage. En Vogue ideology.

    • “the only thing feared in 1942 was dictators, totalitarianism, and fascism.”

      And desegregation, and a return to the Great Depression, and drought, and organized crime, and women in the workplace, and organized labor, and … :-)

        Point well taken, and well done sir. In fact, so well done I would love to expand on your comment:

        desegregation: I agree completely, and in fact that neurosis continues to this day as evidenced by the divisiveness of our current President

        return to the Great Depression: precisely what the Republicans and economists are railing about as we speak … increased taxation without spending cuts during an economic down turn.

        drought: Economically speaking, we do in fact have a drought of small business cash-flow, and with the upcoming increased taxes secondary to misanthropic programs such as Obamacare, that economic drought is likely to turn into a economic desert.

        organized crime: yes sir! And while we continue to allow Chicago’s thugs to arm Mexican cartels, we will have to continue to bear guns, and live in fear.

        women in the workplace: not so much, except when you get 10 of them all menopausal, fighting over the AC settings.

        organized labor: Only if you are in a tent, work for Boeing, or a child needing an education; I suppose.

        Amazingly we found some common ground today. Maybe Christmas is the time of miracles, Professor McPherson.

  3. There is obviosly something more a fault than the “presence of guns” at schools. When I was in high school (’66-’69), during hunting season we used to have our hunting rifles in gun racks behind our seats and I never heard of a single incident in Bay County involving one of them.

    • My Idaho high school in the mid-1970s, too. I also started carrying a pocket knife in the 4th grade. Neither is allowed in public schools today.

  4. In my Bay County high school in the early 1980s, we weren’t worried with any of that. The name of the game then was getting away with a little booze in the locker, and what girl was going to the party with you that night.

    Gosh I loved the 80s. :)
