  1. Thomas Stone HS is 9-12th grade, right?
    That means most, if not all, students are minors, right?
    That means that their “parents” are still responsible for them, right?
    That means that their “parents” should know what their kids have on themselves when they leave for school, right?
    That means that their parents should be charged unless the kid didn’t bring it from home, right?!!!

    1. Charged with what exactly Archie? You are Mr. 2A. You think everyone should be able to carry an actual gun. Now you think parents should be arrested if their kids carry a fake gun? Sure would be interested to hear you explain that line of thought.

      1. Ummmm, they are not of legal age to own a handgun…..dummy.

        But, you never knew anything about weapons back then, and you still don’t, I see.

        Priceless.

        1. You haven’t gotten any smarter have you while you were in rehab (or just posting under other names)? Read the 2nd sentence of the article Clueless. Then go look up the word “replica”.

          1. I’m responding to this doozy of a sentence, butt-wipe:

            “You think everyone should be able to carry an actual gun. ”

            As stated earlier, they are not old enough.

            I see some things never change – including understanding your own commentary.

  2. This is the first time I kind of agree with CWAMM.

    If a parent is a responsible for a child getting a gun that they then take to school, charge the parent and the child.

    I’m sick of all the dumb parents that have given guns to kids who then became school shooters in America.

    And I’m praying that this tragedy does not happen again in Southern Maryland (or anywhere, of course) .

  3. I remember getting suspended from Thomas Stone for fighting. They do a better job of communicating with students in crisis. I did become successful and I do understand that kids make mistakes. I just scolded this kid for pulling an airpistol in front of a school in La Plata,he put it away and pedalled outta there. You have to talk to these kids, they’ll listen, they’re starving for knowledge. I perform comedy in DC and Baltimore WHO AM I? Relocating for work soon, but good luck guys!

When you are done, you can add the word “context” to the ones you need to look up.
