'cause really, how insecure do you have to be to openly carry a loaded weapon in the vicinity of the nation's first Black President?**
I received from my childrens' school yesterday the "code of conduct" handbook put out by the district, a fifty-seven page document which outlines policies and procedures related to student conduct and behavior.
The highest "Level IV" Misconduct, which automatically leads to a ten-day out of school suspension and possible follow-up with law enforcement, includes
Mayors of cities/towns where the President appears, I have one word for you: liability. School boards do not have zero-tolerance policies on weapons because they want to piss off the National Rifle Association. They do it to protect themselves and those around them not only from gunshots, but from lawsuits. How's your city budget doin', there, Mister Mayor? Want to pay some lawyers lots of overtime to have them tell you to settle for bigger bucks, because some kid got shot by a bullet intended to intimidate a certain VIP out-of-towner? Talk it over with your council. Work it out with the Secret Service and Congress. And do it quick.
- Possession/use of/or transfer of weapons or look-alike weapons/or other objects to produce bodily harm.
- Physical intimidation of a student, school employee, or other person.
- Other acts of misconduct which are seriously disruptive and/or which create a safety hazard to students, staff and/or school property.
**PS The General goes even further and is so right: if the President's penis is duly registered we won't have all this trouble.
