  1. You all are missing one important part of the rules.


    "All persons involved in Scouting shall report to local authorities"


    The local authorities, ie the police should have been called. This really should be out of everyone's hands. In NY this would be a felony.


    Why do you or any ordinary leader think they are equipped to handle a situation like this. If this had happened in the local McDonalds you would have called the police, why is this different?

  2. If you know anything about these, you would know they are not rocket launchers. They are expended training devices. They can't fire anything and they are junk and get thrown in trash all the time.


    All it is is an anti gun nut trying to make news.

  3. School resource officers are a fine thing, however they won't be any good if they are not at the entrance. Look at the size of Sandy Hook School, if he was at the other end of the school it would have taken him about 2 minutes to get to the scene of shooting.


    The only way armed officers work is if they are stationed at the entrance and don't move

  4. One thing no one has pointed out is that all of these mass school shooting happen in small towns. A lot of larger urban school already have guards and metal detectors present in there schools.


    Urban schools have been dealing with guns and other weapons for years now and know how to deal with these issues.


    Small town america needs to change like they did years ago.

  5. Do you have $250K in liability insurance on every knife you own, or how about on each of the tires of your cars? Thats a stupid and rediculous idea.


    Here in NNY owning guns is a part of life. I have close to 50 all are legal. I have a Bushmaster, plus several others on that list. Cases of Ammo too.


    Its my business what I collect, guns happen to be one of my hobbies.


    Have my guns killed anyone, not lately, because I have no intention of shooting anyone. But don't tell me to give up my guns, it might change my mind.


    PS: I am ready for the Zombie Apocolypse are you?

  6. >>>"Winter camping in our area means we can leave the battery-powered fans at home and actually sleep without sweating. Ahhh....Florida."


    That sounds like our typical summer camping trip in NNY. If you don't get to snowshoe into a camp and set up in the deap snow your missing something.



    You know its winter when you have to get up at 2am to pee and its minus 30 degree's. You find out real quick just how bad your really have to go.

  7. We camp here in NNY year round. A little snow and cold won't kill you. The best thing is if you have snow is to build Igloo's/Quinzee's and stay in them. The boys will love that.


    The guer is not that expensive, just more layers of clothing. Our troop has Ski's and snowshoes so we can do it all.

  8. They are perfectly legitamate examples to use. They do not meet membership rules. So if they don't meet membership rules you would exclude them, correct?


    So you have a person thats gay, or one tha says I am an athiest, so they don't meet membership rules. So your just going to ignore the rule?


    Once you deceide to ignore that rule, where do you stop? Is then 20 Merit badges enough for eagle, or 12 nights of camping for OA?


    How about we stop worrying about the speed limit, drive what you think the speed is.


    I see people everyweek in court that think the same thing, why that rule is not right, so I will just ignore it. Thats why we don't need to start down this slippery slope.
