    I feel for you. It's a struggle, for both the parents and the offspring. I've been through this phase with both my parents and my father-in-law, and now I'm a guardian for my 92 years-old-next-week aunt. Each situation is/was different, ranging from assisted living (then hospice) to in-home care, either provided by pros or family. When my father-in-law (taken care of at our home by his daughters) got his little stroke and was bedridden and incontinent, he wondered why he couldn't just die. :( My aunt is interesting, she can afford pretty much whatever, but wants to move back to her house from assisted living. I understand the desire, but assisted living is much better for her in some way, e.g., socialization with folks her age, 24x7 monitoring, etc. So, money is not an issue, but quality of life, as usual, is. Best of luck in your decisions.... Don't forget to hug the parents; I wish I'd done more of that during their end of life.

    Dunno the details, but let's see, here's the bill summary and my .02: * Citing this act as the “Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act”; -- whatever * authorizing the awarding of grants through the Crime Stoppers Trust Fund for student crime watch programs; -- Hmmm, training kids to watch the shooter come in? OK * establishing the Office of Safe Schools within the Department of Education; -- more bureaucracy will surely keep crazy shooters from killing kids, just look at how well the DHS has done to keep us safe... * providing that each sheriff may establish a Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program and appoint certain volunteer school employees as school guardians; -- Appoint a volunteer? OK. Still, seems like the right direction, let those who want to carry a better defense tool do so.

    I share your concern, and the slanted article is full of errors , but they do mention an ERPO, so it seems like there was some due process here, based on the "volume of complaints" received "over the past year." Which, of course, someone in the apt complex called "an immediate crisis." :rolleyes: I agree this is a totally predictable and expected result of such 'protective' measures....sigh

    Would be funny to see folks paint up some pro-gun/liberty/2A signs, then get Lyft to take 'em for free to the anti-gun rally... Unintended consequences, like gun-free zones... ;)

    What do the kids want? At 3:08 in this piece, an NEA VP says it very clearly: No one, I assume, except our .gov/.mil warrior class.. ;) I guess honest, responsible, "assault rifle" owners are just screwed, "for the good of the many."

    Even the Austin paper has to kind of sort of admit campus carry is not a problem, but they get their anti-gun licks in at the end...

    The Baker Act ("protective detention") mentioned at 1:45 Also, interesting logic at about 4:00. What could possibly go wrong? ;)
