School officials deeply troubled over guns appearing ON SIGNS BANNING GUNS
CNSNews ^ | 2/5/2014 | Eric Owens

Some school officials aren’t happy about the stickers because they contain a very basic image of a gun.

“It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,’” Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

LOL! You can't make this stuff up. I find it bothersome that offensive things offend me, which is bothersome. Maybe a picture of some other inanimate object would suffice.

Guns are to liberals what crosses are to vampires.

Actually crosses are to liberals what crosses are to vampires.

Pretty soon, they won’t even SAY the word gun. They will use the “G-Word.”

Their signs will say...

NO G*NS ALLOWED.

But how will they know what not to bring in if there’s no picture of not what to bring in?

No You-Know-What's allowed on premises.

That should cover just about everything.

One of my private music students, a star-student-straight-A-Middle-School-Pre-Med Program student had to do a project on the Bill of Rights. Her assignment was the 2A, which was a riot because her parents are not just O-Voters but ACTUALLY WORKED ON HIS CAMPAIGN!

Anyway, she made up a Beautiful illustrated Display Board with a life-size picture of a 45 Semi-Auto complete with a visible serial number!

I very kindly told her that she could get into BIG TROUBLE at her school with that picture on display., and suggested she post a nice picture of the Constitution, or even the Lexington Minuteman Statue to make her point.

He parents were APPALLED that their beautiful, Intelligent, and Very NICE daughter would be persecuted in such an unfair and ridiculous manner.

And yet, it happens every day in the obamanation of desolation.

No problem! Put a picture of a sandwich with 2 bites out of it, or a kid pointing with his finger. Everybody knows what a sandwich or a pointed finger means!

Just use the same symbol but instead of the gun used a chewed Pop Tart.

A little insight into the mass of contradictions, phobias, irrationality, self-loathing and hysteria that passes for the liberal mind.

If anyone was still doubting the media is reporting any damn thing they can lay their hands on in an effort to keep the gun violence issue smoldering...

Uh, that’s not the position you want to be in if the “lyin’ king” is lurking around.

This principal needs some heavy desensitization aversion therapy. The Left is really mentally ill.

Don’t you have to put a picture of gun on the sign to conform to some sort of international standards. Otherwise, those that cannot read or speak the language will be unable to comprehend its meaning.

Exactly. They can’t read so they need a depiction of what a gun looks like. But then there are so many types they’ll have to put up a poster showing all the types of guns there are.

Thank you. He was rather amazing. As he once wrote: “... I’m an engineer, an artist, or a U.S. Marine. I’m as comfortable with physics as I am with ballistics or a brush...”

But enough thread hijacking ... Our local high school has since developed a Navy JROTC program and does not seem all paranoid/PC about these things. And this is NOT a rural area, though comfortably south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Before the first ‘Gun Free School Zone’ signs were posted, we had no school shootings. I think it was the suggestion.

My niece in Montreal wouldn’t say “gun” a few years back. Insisted she was told it’s a bad word.
