BULLIES? YOU MEAN MY PUNCHING BAG | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
People like to use the "bully" excuse for school shootings. I don't buy that excuse! I guess every random person shot was a bully to the cowardly shooter since his targets are not specific.

In my school days if there was a punk who picked on someone that person would simply beat the bully up. A good brawl solved many problems in those days ;)

What has changed since those days?

Truth. I and have said it many times before. The common denominator of all of the school shootings is psychotropic drugs.

Mental problems and behavioral problems are the new black. I hate to say I have known of parents demanding meds for their kids. When I was growing up it was normal for kids to want to run and play, laugh and yell etc.... We knew to take outside into the great free range. Not anymore. The layers to these problems are many.

Naah you're right, I don't buy the "bully" excuse either. That's essentially blaming "toxic masculinity" which is The opposite of the cause of these violent outbursts.

Helicopter parents... and yet they also let 11 year old little Billy play 1st person shooters with hd brainsplatter because they don't want to "stifle his creativity." Not the same as Coyote and Roadrunner.. but I better get off my soapbox.

I agree. I was bullied mercilessly for being a skinny girl, and sure it depressed me at times. But never once did I want to take revenge by hurting people. There are several factors, I think, that have led to this Era of school violence and terrorism; from the out-of-hand prescription of behavior-modifying meds for kids and the saturation of violence in video games. There are more contributing factors, of course. But it is sad, too, knowing that "experts" ignore the simple fact that kids were raised in an environment more conductive to healthy mental attitude than what kids have today.

Video games are not the problem. Look if a person wants to play a "violent" video game then chances are they are 'violent" to start off with.

They are not the problem. Unlimited access to violent content is *part* of the problem in my opinion, but there are many parts. The anti-gun nuts can only see the role of guns, which is why they are wrong.

It really depends. I know at least some people play violent games specifically for the violence, but a lot of people play for the strategy and enjoyment of gaining skill. Even if those skills have little practical value, the act of learning and facing challenges to practice a skill can (in some cases, depending on the individual) actually lead to a better temperament.

I'm not violent, but I still like playing some titanfall 2 or overwatch.

I'll just add that it's more likely video games are actually decreasing real life violence cause it give some people a way to express some urges (basically like pornography, sports, arts etc).
And if some people can't tell the difference between violence in real life and violence in video games, it's not because of the video games themself, it's an educationnal issue (so blame the parents, the schools, the society, or the agressive one himself, whatever, but not the video game).

I think it depends on the individual. When I was young and impressionable, violent video games or movies actually did make me want to be slightly more aggressive. Now days I rarely play, but when I do it is usually for the strategy. A lot of it boils down to the parents knowing their kids and teaching them to be mature.

Bully was a physical threat you could not walk away from. Now it’s used to describe electronic posts when a victim refuses to turn off their social media. We had the rumors and gossip mills but they were not real threats - short term embarrassment at worst until the next topic arose. People have failed to learn basic conflict skills in their youth.

You know cyber-bullying often involves cyber-stalking, right? The stalker follows the victim everywhere they go online. The only solution is to pretty much not use the internet at all, but why should the victim have to go to that length? If the victim changes their daily pattern around to avoid coming in contact with their bully, then that's a major problem.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; Cyber-bullying is to actual bullying as cyber-sex is to actual sex.

What he's trying to say is that the term "bullying" has been extremely oversaturated. There are cases of actual bullying, but oftentimes it's not.

Lawmakers know that banning guns will make them more valuable, and criminals don't follow the law, good citizens do. I mean, I have seen a meme that said "If everyone has a conceal and carry, nowhere looks safe to a criminal.

What kinds of guns were accessible to 17 year-olds back then?
reply
7 ups, 1 reply
Probably guns used for hunting, if they lived in a rural area :3

You're right, we were farm kids. Out there, if you wanna have fun, you can either go shooting, or cook meth. Given the choice, our parents had no problem with us having guns :)

Well to my knowledge you can't buy a gun until you are 18. And you must be 21 to get a CCDW license. But that is in my state. So the only guns accessible to them would be those belonging to family and friends. And those were probably mostly hunting type guns or old military surplus rifles such as the MK1 303.
My Granddad had one of those that now belongs to my dad. Unfortunately it is loose in one place and the magazine doesn't work. It can still shoot, I just worry about tearing it up. It has one of those adjustable sights like in some old western movies, pretty neat ;)

I'm pretty sure in my state that I can get a gun at 17, but I'm not certain. :P

Pretty neat indeed. Sounds like a nice western touch. (though I've never seen a western for as long as I can remember) ;)

I'm 39 & Holding (as the old song goes) and I remember a few guys in the grade above used to do it regularly... fewer in my grade, and maybe one or two in the class behind me...

(that's not to say Others didn't keep them in their Car Trunks, but the Gun in the Truck Cab was an existing but dwindling feature,in the late 90s, although Trucks in general reduced in popularity as the Farm Kids 'aged out' as well; and the next wave was not yet old enough to drive)

I'm a bit younger than you. We were all farm kids too. I'm not saying having guns wasn't against the rules, or that we advertised what we were doing haha! My point was that there were guns available pretty much all the time, but we worked out our problems without going on shooting rampages.

Grew up in Texas where everyone had guns in the back windows of their trucks. Our principal was shot and killed by the front door of our school by one of the students in 1977.
