    • We have 20 times as many participants in our sports programs than we have in scouting. 
    • I never really thought about this...as our COR, not once in my years with the pack and troop ever showed up to a single meeting that I attended...committee or otherwise.  I never personally have ever spoken to the man. BUT If I were appointed COR for a unit, I'd pretty much insist on doing just one unit, and I'd tell BSA to take a hike on any such rule.  I say this because I'd like to think that as COR I'd try to attend at least a majority of the committee meetings, and at least some of the troop meetings and events....I'd recon that to be at least maybe 1-3 meetings per month.  That would be double the meetings if I were doing a troop + pack....and triple if there was also a crew.  No thanks
    • I wouldn't classify these three as "school shootings". As least, not in the same way that last week's tragedy was. The incidents above took place after school hours or *might* have involved a shooter that was or wasn't a student. That's a bit different than a student bringing a firearm on campus and discharging it. If you want to broaden the discussion to student-aged kids and violence, then I suspect the number is much higher than 18 incidents. Expand that to the number of kids who simply bring firearms on campus and that number grows further. Expand that to the number of kids detained for bringing anything deemed a "weapon" on to campus and that number would explode.
    • Not illegal drugs, but how many of these shooters have been on SSRI meds? I wonder also about ADD meds too....? ....either current use or in the past.
    •   I think this sums it up. It at least shows that criminals had drugs in their system. I find it ironic that Scouters are justifying the existence of illegal drugs.
