To The Parkland, Florida Young Folk

You came into this world by yourself. You are leaving that way, too. So take care of yourself first, and foremost.

I imagine returning to the days of my youth at John Jay High School in Hopewell Junction, New Yawk and to have one day experienced the moments of a day like you have now; terrifying moments as the events were unfolding. I probably wouldn't've had the disposition to actually think the thought at these moments but the want for a pistol to have magically appeared in my hand at these moments would've definitely been a godsend.

Every single young man and many young women in your school that day at those very moments the shots were being fired could only wish that their Guardian Angel had simply placed a functioning pistol in their hand and with a whisper, "You know what you have to do," and then without hesitation to find an opportunity to obtain proximity to aim and to shoot several projectiles which would immediately stop the behavior of Mr. Cruz.

READ: there is nothing wrong with you. There is no reason any Junior or Senior high school student cannot have a pistol in school. You've learned a martial art skill that cripples or kills but cannot own a firearm?

"Esteemed" legislators across America wrote those laws stating no guns in schools. Problem is there is nothing wrong with you having them first think and then to write such a law towards you. Every one of those legislators in every State of the Union responsible for writing and enacting those laws knows perfectly well that the mischievous will not obey this law at their moment of mischief and will do whatever is on their mind with a gun anywho's. They all know that these types of laws will have absolutely no practical, deterrent effect to halt catastrophe: none whatsoever. They also realize and are careless that many good and upstanding citizens will only be harassed by these types of feckless laws spit upon the land. Because of these laws you today will be suspended, expelled, and arrested to confinement from the school grounds simply for a self-serving want for self-protection by bringing a gun to school. Inherently the law implies or infers there is something "wrong" with every stereotypical, law-abiding citizen's want to protect themselves in this manner. Were you a fourteen-year-old martial artist with the skill to maim and to kill would you act irresponsibly with this skill simply because you now have the capacity to do so, too? Our legislators may be educated and thus deemed "smart" as they navigate through the complex legal systems they have established but they are not too swift in the practical social skills solutions department.

Police are necessary, butt …,

Just take care of yourself, first. Were I a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student today I know exactly what I would do after this last incident: I would purchase a personal protection firearm of my own. Then I would challenge those laws with no guns in school. Take steps to make Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School known as the first in the State that rescinded those garbage can, worthless laws enacted by very "smart" people with less than honorable skills in the social skills department. Perhaps I'd also find a way enabling myself and other students of my caliber to learn to "quietly" carry concealed while on school grounds. This only (I know I'm young but …!) a band-aid upon my mind after what happened, for the trauma of the events, and the salve of confidence I'll need for the next several months to feel good about myself and the world around me. I would feel a want to …? I must do …? something.

Perhaps those legislators who enacted the No Guns In School law do not cause you to feel inferior and helpless in the way I describe? And so I imagine you at seventeen, eighteen years of age looking into the mirror and truthfully saying to yourself you might actually be irresponsible? if you at any time had possession of a gun while on the school grounds each hour of every day for the final two years of attendance? If so please pardon my crassness. This is not your cup of tea, and I should not be in your space.

Students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, my take? take the time and do your homework to find a pistol you like, perhaps on the internet. Talk to a gun store operator, and then purchase a weapon. Spend some quiet moments alone in your bedroom with that gun lying on your bed. Quiet time, alone, just you perhaps for a spell to finger the metal and the machine's components. Why someone thought to put those pieces specifically the way they are, where they are, in the first place …, eventually to contemplate upon what you are now getting yourself involved with. You are taking a path where you will grow up a bit faster. Your childhood days are over anyway, correct? 

A kiss on your forehead. So it does go.

    3. This topic is too delicate; the implications for resolve too tangled and complex for words.

    4. After watching this video of a past Grecian culture,

      if I were to proffer that the culture today in the year 2018 has turned into …? what? what? what?!

      what our legislatures have done to the mores, folkways, and scruples such that our present government in Washington and most all the fifty States has perfected their Tammany Hall existence to the populace as good, and no one besides President Trump, myself and a small handful of others (a kiss on the forehead of our Ann Coulter) have a mindset to perceive what has happened to this nation. The mentality of half the population of the United States wants more Tammany Hall shenanigans to occur, instead of righting the boat upright before it totally sinks!

      Half the population of the United States cares less about the pure graft and looting of the Treasury instead only want a woman President. #oMG

      This nation is doomed after Donald Trump leaves. It's a free for all with the law-making political elite. Everyone these government types know and love get their little slice to become little millionaires from the $400-600 billion tax revenue coming in four times a year. Because there is nothing unlawful about it anymore. #peanutsForThePeons

      Stormy days ahead for President Trump and his crew.
