Being a student most of that is BS.....just lettin ya'll know. For the most part life in this day and age really is as different as this thread says but:



I got in fights all through out HS and never had the cops called.



Brought a shotgun to school b/c i was heading straight to camp after and showed our resource officer my

old English sxs and he thought it was cool.



Have broken many windows (shot most of em' with a pellet gun) and gotten maaaaaaany whippins......I turned out ok and dad's sittin here next to me.



Life is different but I think that until the previous generations way of life has been totally watered down through years of half-asses life won't be allllll that much different.

I graduated in 1984, but was nothing to bring our guns to woodworking class to redo the stocks, then welding class to make targets and trying them out from the welded mount at the shop doors. Here a loud bang in class, oh its just shop class sighting in a rifle. lol

Our school was out in the middle of no where in Kansas, and shop building was not connected to the main school. We even had skeet shooting as one of our sports for school. How times have changed!!!!

Not sure if this was the norm in all schools, I look back now and just can't believe what we were aloud to do. And you know what? We never had a shooting, or even feared anything like that.
