Yes, this is a bona fide idea racing through the Florida legislature (with the help of the NRA): Allowing guns on the campuses of Florida's Public College Campuses (there are 40 of them). I am not making this up.
Has anyone from the Florida legislature met a teenager? I suppose not.
Does anyone remember a painful breakup from their younger years or a bully they encountered? What if you had a gun at that time? What might have happened if you were despondent to the core? Arming children at schools without parents present is the mother of all stupid ideas. And lets face it, they are STILL children, many not emotionally equipped to control themselves.
According to Raisingchildren.net:
Your child goes through a ‘bulletproof’ stage of thinking and acting as if nothing bad could happen to him. Your child’s decision-making skills are still developing, and your child is still learning about the consequences of actions.
