    • 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.
    • Yes, it's not true, I usually go to snopes, when I don't know who to believe, and it tells me.... https://www.snopes.com/2018/02/16/how-many-school-shootings-in-2018/ Firearm attacks during school hours: 7 (incidents resulting in injuries or deaths: 5)  22 January: Italy High School, Italy, Texas – A 16-year-old student opened fire with a semi-automatic handgun in the school cafeteria, wounding another student. 22 January: NET Charter High School, Gentilly, Louisiana – An unknown person fired shots at students from a vehicle in the school parking lot. One person was injured (though not by gunfire). 23 January: Marshall County High School, Benton, Kentucky – A 15-year-old student opened fire with a handgun on school grounds, killing two and injuring 18. 25 January: Murphy High School, Mobile, Alabama – A student fired a handgun into the air during a fight with another student. No injuries were reported. 26 January: Dearborn High School, Dearborn, Michigan – Shots were fired during a fight in the school parking lot. No injuries were reported. 31 January: Lincoln High School, Philadelphia – A fight during a basketball game resulted in the shooting death of a 32-year-old man outside the school. 14 February: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida – A 19-year-old former student opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing 17 and injuring 14. But what struck me wasn't the number, the amount, the statistics, fuel for a good discussion. I saw this list on a BBC article, with their ages, and it really took the wind out of my sails, not ashamed to say I get a little teared up every time I look at it... The students who died were: Alyssa Alhadeff, 14 Martin Duque, 14 Alaina Petty, 14 Alex Schachter, 14 Jaime Guttenberg, 14 Cara Loughran, 14 Gina Montalto, 14 Luke Hoyer, 15 Peter Wang, 15 Carmen Schentrup, 16 Nicholas Dworet, 17 Joaquin Oliver, 17 Helena Ramsey, 17 Meadow Pollack, 18
    • We are fortunate that our CO has a mostly unused basement. We keep all of our gear in a caged area. Our Klondike sleds and a few other large items are outside the cage. We store our trailer in the parking lot of an industrial building owned by a local electrician. We have a designated parking spot next to a small dog park, so there is a lot of coming and going, which makes that lot a relatively safe location. You might want to see if you can find a similar local business that has space for you to locate a shed.
    • The difference between the two models (athletics and scouting) is that there isn't a limit to the number of boy scouts we have, nor do we have a minimum skill level in Scouting to participate. There are definite limits to how many kids can be on a high school sports team, as well as a minimum standard to participate.
