    But who will suspend the vice-principal for his poor choice of words and over reaction?

    Anything that is said about Firearms by any of the following Governments is almost Guarenteed to be Anti-Firearm: The Federal Government, California, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Conneticut, and Maryland.
    Something said about Horse Pranks being similiar to Loaded Firearms at Schools sounds just like something that is liable to come from the Mouths of Brain Washed Liberals from The CommonWealth of Massachusetts.

    Sonora Rebel, many people there and officials believe their liberal approach is not only correct but obvious to enlightened people. If you don't get it, they work harder at it. Look at how MA voted in November, as if nothing was wrong in the country. In other words, they stood their ground and declared they know what is right, like CA, NY. a couple others. Most of the country saw it different.

    I recently left MA for a job, but November really summarized the state there.

    Gun ownership is dropping in MA. Fees are higher, it is discretionary for handguns, and propoganda is sent out through the media as truth.

    Ridin' a Horse to schoolis like taking a loaded gun?

    First, let me say I truly don't understand much of what goes on back east. I mean in the area of politics. I don't quite get the inference of a loaded gun in connecteion to a horse either. I don't see the problem of riding a horse to school either. I guess I will stay here in Wyoming where we are now carrying concealed without a permit. Anyone who is liberty minded is welcome to come here and enjoy our beautiful state. Oh, and bring your guns with you, open carry is ok here.

    Now guys, the superintendent said correctly, think about it...there is no difference, neither would cause a problem if it wasn't for someone like the superintendent.

    Taking a horse to school, or a loaded firearm to school, been done many times in the past with no bad happenings. My dad would have been an example, that is how he went to school. By time time I was in school (early 50's) the schools were being "consolidated" and the small rural schoolhouse was vanishing,

    Maybe the vice-principal heard that the student 'had a Colt'...

    Keep in mind that this is the state that had Hanoi john kerry and the Hero of Chappaquiddick as senators--before teddy headed off to hell, and barney the frank in the House. That they have Scott Brown in teddy's old seat shows there must be a few people whose brains aren't up their asses--just not enough.

    "The school would not comment, saying that they do not talk about any aspect of student discipline"

    That's pretty draconian. I wonder if slapping them with a lawsuit might change their minds. I bet they'd be discussing the hell out of it then.

    Sure, they're exactly alike...
    except that the horse isn't illegal in a school zone,
    and the gun doesn't act on its own.

    I mean, you want dangerous, let's talk about horses that kick &/or bite!
    None of my firearms have ever done anything like that to me, and even the slide bites were entirely my fault.
    And brass is a lot easier to clean up than poop.

    Remember that riddle from Alice in Wonderland: "How is a raven like a writing desk?" that the author never answered.

    Well maybe we should ask these people, because apparently they know how a horse is like a firearm....
