    My first point of contention: if my kids don't know that it takes somebody fucked up to do this - take them away from me right now. RIGHT NOW.

    My second point of contention is the false sense of security they try to offer. Yes, guys - the school is teaching you how to hide under your desks. Congratulations to them on making the targets easier for the markman.

    You may want to address that Canada is different than the USA with regard to gun laws.


    Yes, this is a great topic to get into with children :rolleyes:

    My 3rd point of contention - "let them know gun laws are different in Canada".

    I don't like them playing that card, nor inspiring any crazy kids on this side of the border to show them up.

    For it. It stops essential services from striking, and makes them use their big people words, instead of shutting down the country, or transportation, or education.

    Right?????

    My last issue with that letter, is addressing the "service workers" for the suggested options we had as parents who clearly must be too fucking stupid to talk to their kids.

    They are all fresh out of college, with zits. They work from a book, and theories, not life knowledge. No fucking WAY am I going to put my kids into the hands of one of those schmucks.

    The letter is kind of condescending. Parents know their kids best, they know what to say to them, and what not to. They don't need some asshole school bureaucrat’s helpful hints.

    You got a red pen?
    You should grade that paper and send it back.

    My brother berated me viciously last night when I said how much it bugged me - but I could not pinpoint why it bugged me so much. This is a valid reason.
