In the video below, parents and administrators at Boca Ciega High School (in Gulfport, Florida) freak out when they discover that a couple of kids brought a backpack-stashed Kahr pistol to a football game. The report doesn’t mention any plot to shoot anyone so…what? Why the cops and extra security measures to prevent someone else from bringing a gun to a game?
Students and parents are far more likely to die from a drunk driving accident going to or from the stadium than a teenage [or older] active shooter. All of which make me wonder . . .
if you know anyone suffering from hoplophobia: an irrational fear of guns. Not just an aversion. Out-and-out fear, complete with an adrenalin-infused fight, flight or freeze response. If so, how did you deal with it?
