I guess ‘riding to the sound of the guns’ is gauche and toxic now. This **** is driving me nuts. That is what the defenders of our species are supposed to do!
My daughter goes to the local community school. One of her friends is a 30-something gal, army vet. The teacher was talking about lock-downs and hiding, etc. The vet whispered to my daughter “The heck with that - I’ll do what I was trained to do - ‘run to the sounds of the guns’. Of course without a gun myself I’ll have to get creative.”
It’s just crazy that a trained vet can’t carry in a school. I believe some schools allow it in Washington state - but not in the Seattle area.
