I do not feel smug. I feel that my grandchildren are not safe at school. I trespassed? In a public school? Really? That’s all you got?
Again, I ask you. What have YOU done to assure your kids’ safety?
I refuse to accept your label of “foolish”. Trust me, I know the laws in my area (not only do I have common sense, I have legal sense), and I broke no laws. I even made one secretary very happy. Get that? SHE was happy to learn that her school had become so complacent, all in the space of one day. Again, what have you done?
Oh, and I read your link. Yep, here the guy would have been taken into custody. I, wearing a camel-colored long winter coat, and carrying my purse (all the ID’s, ya know) walked into a school. When the teachers and students (including my grandchild) smiled and said hello, I returned the smile and said hello also. My face is not known at these school, unless it’s in my car to pick someone up or for a school program. I AM NOT A FAMILIAR FACE)I did absolutely nothing to cause any terror or fear, in anyone.
What have you done? Yes, I’ll keep asking that until I get an answer. And if you tell me you watched so-and-so on TV, or read an article on the net, well, I guess you don’t have kids. That’s ok. Don’t you DARE call me foolish because I acted (absolutely, totally legally, in a calm, non-threatening way)upon my concerns. And, just in case you care, some changes will be made, based on my reports to the schools. And, at least I know, all my kids have rooms with egress windows. Evade, Escape and Run. What about you?
(wow, I think I’ve just started my first confict on FR! And it’s not even to score hits on you! Maybe it will wake you and someone else up)
What have you done?
So within a week of a school mass murder, you take it upon yourself to walk unannounced into and around at least two different schools to test their security. Your qualifications appear to be that you have a concealed carry permit and you have grandchildren in the schools.
You do sound smug. You also appear to have a horrible sense of timing. Why couldn’t it wait for say a month, once cooler heads can look at the matter? Or did you not want to miss the opportunity to make it about you and how right you are?
And let’s take a look at that “legal sense” of yours. You apparently think that you are free to walk into a school because it is “public”? Please. If you have the right to waltz around a public school then why are you upset no one challenged you for doing just that? I mean those are your rights, correct?
You sound like a hothead. Good luck with that.
You may ask me - what have I done? For one, I didn’t do what you did, that’s for sure.
