The Strategy is, of course, to condition the children to associate guns with bad behavior or bad consequences. This will make it easier to repeal the 2nd amendment in the future. A more appropriate response from the "educators" would be to tell the students not to point guns at innocent people who have done them no harm, which is what was done when I was a child.
Really, what needs to happen is the repeal of the 17th amendment; we need to give the states their voice back in congress. I don't think ACA would have passed if the senate truly represented the states' interests rather than their party's interest.
South Side, So what you are saying is that someone doing in-depth research on the facts of a subject should be ignored because that person is not necessarily a "trained" expert? I would say that he made himself an expert on the subject with his research; at the very least he has a clue. And being an intelligent human being, he is able to draw conclusions about what he found. It really shows that he is educated (something that if more Americans were, liberalism would be destroyed). By the way, I know nothing about martial arts, but I have the research skills and intelligence to write a history on the round house kick, if I chose to. You are showing your liberal snobbishness with your statement. It is not as if he was someone who has never run a business or has any executive experience whatsoever occupying the oval office, and wielding tremendous power to ill effect; he is only writing a fact-based research paper.

I need to read about the 17th Amendment and find out what "crisis" came along to sucker both the people and the States to sign on to it. Today, the Senate would never vote with a two-thirds majority to begin the repeal process for that Amendment. Sad, but you can see over time how the people and the States have become slaves to the institution that was supposed to serve them.

And that is why the 17th Amendment should be repealed! Give the States back their voice in Congress, instead of allowing the people to elect party loyalist who stay too long. And while we’re at it repeal the 16th Amendment which gives the federal too much bribery money.

You would need to kill the 16th Amendment also; this alone powers the government beast...too much revenue!

Kill the 16th (income Tax) and 17th (direct election of Senators) amendments, and you probably wouldn't have to worry about term limits.
Nonsense, the breath of life comes from God and only Him. All creation would die if he removed it. When did Lucifer ever create human life without souls?
As bad and as true as those words are, I get a great buzz watching the words of God come to fruition. Whatr a time to be living in! I don't know about you but it causes me to embrace the faith more--afterall what else is there?
Intentionally or unintentionally, your assessment of their collective actions is correct. The killing of our great republic has been a long time in the making and we are now reaping the fruits of the endeavor. But it all started when "we the people" forgot our God and put faith in our own strength and wisdom.
