…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”.

Yeah Utah, the only thing feared in 1942 was dictators, totalitarianism, and fascism.
Today, those are all the rage. En Vogue ideology.
I’m wearing my Che T-shirt now…
Apparently you are in good company too!

Point well taken, and well done sir. In fact, so well done I would love to expand on your comment:
Amazingly we found some common ground today. Maybe Christmas is the time of miracles, Professor McPherson.
“Maybe Christmas is the time of miracles”
Indeed. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

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.
Union County, MS, too in 1973-1977. In ’77, we did Oklahoma! in our senior play with actual Colt 6 shot revolvers strapped on.
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.
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. 🙂
You’ve just reminded me of all the high school keg parties we threw in the woods. I don’t know what kids do now as the land is all developed.
You don’t wanna know.
