Dancing with Dunces
When a school suspends small children for biting toaster pastry into the shape of a gun or pointing fingers at each other simulating firearms or bringing a cake to school decorated with a green plastic soldier, the students are not at fault. The adults who are so rigid and inflexible and hold such anti-gun beliefs are. When I was in high school in the mid-1980s, we had a rifle team. There was no particular stigma attached to the inanimate object that in the right hands is a tool for defense of an individual, family, and even a nation.
