SCHOOL SHOOTING, WHY?

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

News of the recent high school shooting in Florida devastated me!

Personally, I’m a retired high school teacher, and let us be absolutely frank; the recent Florida high school shooter, had to have a reason for his shooting; so why did the killer shoot and kill students and teachers?

Consider, the fact that the shooter had been expelled from the school; could that be the reason he shot students and teachers, retaliation for being expelled?

Why was he expelled? Could that be the reason he shot students and teachers.

Question I have, how could the school possibly teach the shooter to behave so he need not be expelled, if he was expelled; how could the school teach the shooter not to kill the students and the teachers, if the school expelled him?

And, who expelled the shooter and why and for what reason?

Beginning psychology teaches, “punishment” is the worst possible incentive for teaching appropriate behavior, because it also teaches other things than “good” behavior. Could the punishment, expelling, also teach how to get “even” for being expelled?

Tell me, dear reader, have you ever considered the effects of punishing a “person”, for bad behavior.

It takes a different kind of teacher, to believe punishment has no place in a public school; and psychologist say the only proper way for a teacher to teach “good behavior” is for the teacher to be a good “role model”.

Think about all the teachers you had, and were they “good” role models; were you aware some of your teachers were “bad” role models? What kind of teachers did the school shooter have?

Had the school and the shooter’s teachers protected the shooter from mistreatment or bullying, by teachers or other students? Mistreatment and bullying are prime elements of hatred. Hatred is one element of school shootings.

Guns, obviously, are essentially, involved in the “cause” of school shootings?

It would appear that there are two elements involved in all school shooting; they are are guns and hatred.

However, if there were no hatred, guns would not be an issue, would they?

Consider this, why are there so many school shootings in America; and not so many in any other countries? Being America has something to do with the cause.

Are shooters crazy? To plan and successfully carry out a school shooting requires a well-functioning mind!

As stated, I’m a retired school teacher; years ago, one of my favorite students was shot and killed on our high school campus; I never got over it and I never knew the shooter.

Further, I never knew precisely the reason for that shooting. But, I have never quit thinking about it, or thinking what I could have done to prevent it? Schools and teachers are to “protect and teach” students.

Think about it! Think! Think!

AMERICAN SCHOOL SHOOTINGS AND THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AMERICAN CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE SHOT DOWN AND KILLED IN THEIR SCHOOLS, BY AMERICAN FASCIST GUNMEN WHO HAVE HATEFUL, FASCIST VIEWS OF AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY AND WHO ARE EXCERCISING HATEFUL CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS THAT WERE NEVER, EVER INTENDED BY AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL FOREFATHERS! AMERICA DESPERATELY NEEDS TO CHANGE “ONE WORD” OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT OF THE AMERICAN BILL OF RIGHTS.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

The safety of American children and the American people, requires that we the people change one word in the U.S. Constitution and strictly enforce it.

The one word of the Second Amendment be changed is “arms”.

The Second Amendment should be changed to read, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear “muskets”, shall not be infringed.”


MUSKETS OF 1787 VINTAGE

The concept of the Second Amendment is not actually changed!

The musket was the “basic weapon” of the U.S. Army in 1787.

Be informed that this is not a joke; American fascists entering our public schools and universities with military the military assault weapon AR-15 has been able to kill large numbers of American school children in a few short minutes JUSTIFIED BY THE US CONSTITUTION!

“Here’s what are four things to know about the AR-15 rifle including why it’s so popular among gun owners and how many mass shootings the weapon has been used in.

“The rifle has been an American staple for decades. Former Green Beret Barry Sadler sang an ode to his AR-15 he used in the Vietnam war in the 1960s, entitled “One Son of a Gun of a Gun.” A line from the song: “You see this AR-15, she’s hot and she’s mean, and she ain’t built for love or fun. And yet this AR-15 is part of the team. She’s one son of a gun of a gun.”

“According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, “AR” does not stand for “automatic” or “assault” rifle. It stands for “ArmaLite” — the company that created the AR in the 1950s. And failed 2015 legislation that would have banned some semi-automatic guns did not classify the AR-15 as an assault weapon.

The AR-15 and the M-16 are identical in shape, style and operation, except for a key distinction: the M-16 is only automatic, said Frank Proctor, a performance shooting and law enforcement training weapons expert in Alabama. Because the two rifles are so similar, the AR-15 is essentially the semi-automatic version—one pull of the trigger, one shot—of the M-16, Proctor said.

Automatic AR-15s do exist, but the vast majority of Americans cannot buy them.” http://time.com/5160267/gun-used-florida-school-shooting-ar-15/

In contrast a musket was the gun used for hunting and war in 1787: “a heavy large-caliber muzzle-loading usually smoothbore shoulder firearm; broadly : a shoulder gun carried by infantry!”

A musket had to be muzzle loaded one bullet at a time.
