Re: “Bryant private school arms staff

I am in Louisiana, and just read the Comments re: the Arkansas Christian Academy's Constitutional Second-amendment right for staff to have Conceal and Carry Firearms.

I am EXTREMELY disappointed in the rash of ad hominims (personal attack against one's character) by some in this forum, that lend nothing to reasoned discussion. Specifically:

1) Generalized, vauge attacks on one's personal religious beliefs; this is extremely close to Flaming. Have those so engaged in such negativisms not heard of the First Amendment? This is off-topic!

and


2) Can the detractors of Arming School Staff cite ANY specific Documented instance where
there has been any instances of harm done to students or other staff?

Let's all try to re-orient the discussion *away* from personal attacks on one's religious beliefs and return to the topic-at-hand.

I been around forums for decades, and do take the time to educate myself on topics such as this.

We in Louisiana have witnessed the acts of a mentally-ill individual, whose family sought to have him Involuntarily Committed, only to have their efforts thwarted, but our Community has Come Together and RESOLVED in a spirit of cooperation, to improve Mental Health avenues for individuals dealing with serious issues.

Thanks for considering my thoughts...
