I grew up in PA in the 1940's and 50's. Went to public schools and played Army, Hunter and Cops and Robbers during recess. My dad taught me to shoot at a young age and bought me a shotgun at age 12. Most of us boys carried a two blade knife to school ( played games with them during recess ) and no incidents occured. If we had a disagreement, we used our fists. The teacher would ( after the fight was over ) ask us to get cleaned up and go back to class. Now after 74 years ( over 5 years in the military too ) I still own guns and knives and have never harmed anyone with them. It's all about brain washing and control - and the end result will be bad for my grandchildren and yours too. It was once a "great" nation!
