This shit is definitely coming. But I think the nation keeps adding more gun owners so the true libs are actually outnumbered, they just have the media and parts of government on their side.I wouldn't put it past Healey or some other future loon governor to try and put the entire member list of NES on an EPO list for disarmament for being 'gun nuts'.
idiot?? he did say magazine instead of clip, didn't he?.......A fellow a few seats away from me looked over and said, "There is no reason anyone should have any more than 6 round magazines."
I did not respond.
He said, "Well, do you agree or not?"
I said, "I don't talk to idiots."
I'm not really sure I get the "New Hampshire" stuff.No. New Hampshire might need a wall soon.
Guys who’ve paid to move to NH need to think that the move made sense. So they tend to get militant.I'm not really sure I get the "New Hampshire" stuff.
Besides the fact that we all pretty much sink or swim as one, one of the basic tenets has always been fight the war while it's still on the other guys turf, so you don't have to fight it on yours.
This was high school. Lots of well-liked high school teachers joke with students all the time. They routinely get away with comments that, if they were reported in print, would look outrageous. But in context, they’re just jokes.I'm actually going to take a contrary view here...
I have a problem with the teacher's statement, not necessarily because he said 'GUN!', but because his response was probably intended to be a threat. The chosen weapon in that statement is immaterial, and the teacher is either a real jackass or mentally incompetent. I'm going with jackass. Why would he say next to my gun? What if he had said, "It's at home next to my barbwire covered baseball bat named 'Lucille'. Context people, context...
Imagine someone responded to your kid with such a statement that includes a similar thinly veiled threat. How would you respond? I don't take threats to my family lightly and would have gone directly to the school to have a serious discussion with the head principal. Oh wait, this involves 'GUNS', which trumps family and suspends logic.
We don't know that (or I don't know that) for sure. Logic tells me that in this political climate it would be the height of irresponsibility and stupidity if he meant it as a threat. But I wasn't there, so I'm going to assume he's not stupid and it was said in the same context as if he had said "the answers are locked up tight in my safe and you'll never get them".I'm actually going to take a contrary view here...

I get your point and would not have a problem with your joking. Maybe what the teacher said was a joke- I didn't get that, however. Sounded more like "You wanna try to steal the answers? Me and my gun will stop you." Anyway, the teacher is an idiot. And yes, people are overreacting. Only people who deserve to react are the parents, and only if the context made it out to be a threat.This was high school. Lots of well-liked high school teachers joke with students all the time.

This struck me as one of those kind of comments.
I tell my students frequently, when they ask about sea-level rise, Yellowstone, North Korea, or a bunch of other off-topic bullshit, “that’s why I’m hoarding canned goods and ammo.” I say it all the time. It always gets a laugh and communicates to them that I don’t feel like addressing their question right now, but that I’ve thought about it.
It’s also the truth.
But if it was taken out of context? “According to former students, Mr Picton has a long history of referring to stockpiles of ammunition. Authorities are investigating. This is Dan Hausle, reporting live!”
But not to a classroom full of animals and SJW's, LOL.If I was looking to refer to the most secure spot in my house, my initial off the cuff response would be "In my gun safe."
Sort of like guys in Ma. that are convinced that all their hand wringing and teeth gnashing will make it all change. Dream on!Guys who’ve paid to move to NH need to think that the move made sense. So they tend to get militant.
I’m not blaming them, even if they get annoying.
You heard this from another teacher who heard it from someone else yet you post it as a statement of fact, that he told the kids he had a gun in his car. Excellent!The teacher told the students he had a gun in his car.
