74. Well thank you for a good, honest debate

I appreciate that we have differences of opinion.

I will most certainly agree with you about "zero tolerance" policies. I think they are not in the best interest of a corporation, its workers or schools and their teachers and students. Managers/Teachers/Principals on the ground where crap really happens need to have discretion to do what is right based on the facts and situation. It's never as black and white as zero-tolerance would have us believe.

I totally understand your desire to help the guy keep his job and ask the company to make an exception. I feel for him and I think it was an honest effort on his part to do what he thought would protect others.

But how do they ensure he doesn't whip out a gun again because he has been indirectly rewarded for doing it once already? He really just endangered other people. The next time might end up with bullets flying and several people injured. We don't want another Columbine or Aurora theatre incident.

Thank you for quoting me where I come out on the side of it's okay to own a gun. I'm rather flattered. I'm not anti-gun at all. I'm just for responsible gun use.

A peaceful night to you as well. I look forward to reading your posts in the future. And I'm happy to spar any time.
