The only thing that stops a bad coward with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

But no, our society has been so conditioned by the lily leftists to say that we should not have weapons at the ready in our schools, in care facilities, our military bases (still cannot figure that one out) and especially around women. In fact, they have said that any aggression on the part of males is wrong. By extension male means gun.

The left has made much of our collective society afraid of guns while they go around with their security details. You think the anti-gun people will give up their security details? About as much of a chance that they will stop late-term abortions.

When I was growing up there were shooting clubs in school. Think about that. We had guns in schools growing up, and my parents had the Bible in schools, and there were no shootings by loner students, even those who had been bullied.

You know what else was encouraged in schools back then? Men being men and, if necessary, fighting it out and then dropping the issue.

Men didn’t feel the need to shoot each other up. In the old school we fought it out on the playground and afterward you became friends.The Army understood this once as this very funny and true video points out (spoiler, some language may offend someone).

Society as a whole got that too. Men got their aggressions out on each other back in the day and then it was over. Often, they became good friends afterward. Even schools understood this. Don’t believe me? Check this out from a family show that was actually considered quite liberal back in the day.

Now because of zero tolerance even if a child is defending himself in a fight they will be suspended from school. Forget about gun clubs.

Theodore Roosevelt’s father understood masculinity when young Teddy was growing up. Roosevelt’s dad told his son that he had the mind but not the body. Today if a man says that to his son perhaps he will be arrested for emotional abuse or exploitation. At the very least bring social services over. But Theodore Roosevelt became a strong man. He was a great warrior and hunter, yet also had a bear cub named after him and won the Nobel Peace Prize when it meant something. He did not allow society to dictate his weaknesses to him. Instead, he had a father who encouraged him and was not afraid to do so.

We have allowed the lily leftists to say that all aggression, and by extension manhood, is wrong while also allowing them to disarm the most vulnerable, the women. We also have Hollywood, who also loves their security details, to turn women into objects instead of examples of grace, femininity, and motherhood.

The left applies band aids to problems of society because they are interested, like their Marxists brothers they are drawing ever closer to, in political power. They say, “Go through the citizens police academy, take karate, get a dog.” They never encourage the most vulnerable to get the one thing that is guaranteed to stop an evil person with a gun; a gun. But the powerful will never give up their guns.

The powerful are so obsessed with guns and power that only one conclusion can be drawn; they hate their women almost as much as they hate manhood. It’s time to bring back real manhood and protect the ladies.

Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

This article is so true. We’d take our 22s to school, and stack them in the corner of the coat closet. After school, rabbits beware!

If two kids had issues, then usually a teacher/coach would send them to the bike racks at 3pm to “sort it out”. After a brief scrap, they were usually friends for life.

As a high schooler some 35 years ago, when we all came back from Christmas break, we'd group up in the parking lot after school to see what each other got for Christmas. Many deer rifles, shotguns, and bows where laid out across back seats and tailgates, yet no one ever got shot. Weird...

Honest question to all here. How many of you have been involved in at least one 'real' fight in your life time?

As I've noted for my son and his friends, I won and lost a number of 'encounters' with individuals harboring 'different viewpoints' during middle and high school. Some of those opponents did indeed become good friends. No one ever died or was severely injured (that I can remember).

I think those altercations were very important to youth development as they taught us our limitations, developed a governor on other emotions and temper, and developed intelligence (i.e. learning when to zip it and/or walk away was the better decision). Few of the youth today have any sense of any of this while they hide behind their little touch screens and attack from cyber space.

Toxic masculinity is bad for society. We need to raise our boys to become male feminists.

This. That's the way it was, it helped boys grow up.

Bigdeal, I have never struck anyone in anger. I have never been in a fist fight. However, I realize that, for my age (80) that is an anomaly. I was small and not disposed to be argumentative or aggressive. I now believe that it was abnormal then and stultified my development. (My parents both wished I'd been more willing to fight.) Somehow, I've managed to survive, but I won't survive an apocalypse. I am a product of easy times and unprepared.

I grew up in the country in the 70's and 80's. Won some, lost some. I have two boys, 8th and 5th grades and neither has ever thrown a punch or been knocked on their butt. Different times for sure.

I've wondered the same thing, for me and our neighborhood it was a right of passage back in the 60's. I had 3 or 4 fights and learned something from each of them. It used to be good fathers and uncles and older brothers would school boys on how to go toe to toe when necessary. I'm reading a book right now on how feminism has hurt several generations of boys just being boys and coupled with an absence of fathers we end up with bullied school shooters.
