    Politically incorrect to give a kid a pocket knife now-a-days. I grew up carrying a pocket knife and even now feel naked if I don’t have my Stockman with me.

    I was in my high school ROTC program, and we even (ready for this?) fired guns on the firing range on school property.

    @comics lover…they invented video games to stifle the imagination of children.

    I was on the Junior High School Rifle Team. We had a range in the school gym.

    No “political” here, matter of safety and liability.

    A “Leave It To Beaver”, Ward descriped the game and was told they be arrested if they did that at the park. And this was in the 1960’s.

    Interesting! It may not have been so dangerous as it seems because the knives were so dull back then. I remember they couldn’t cut anything. There are all these old time stories of whittling and carving wood but I found it wasn’t possible with the knives I had.

    Funny, we were talking about something like that just recently:
    In the 1960’s at my husband’s high school, (in the DC suburbs)there was a rifle team which met after school.
    The team members (including my husband’s best friend) were allowed to bring their rifles to school and leave them in their lockers during class.
    A younger friend, who went to college in PA in the 1980’s, said during hunting season, people often showed up to class in camoflage and with guns so they could go hunting between classes.

    And, for years, when I was working, I always carried a pocket knife, or at least a pen knife. It had a practical purpose: when I worked in a greenhouse, I used it to cut stems. When I became an auto damage appraiser, I used it to determine if a car had clear coat paint.Now this deal airline attendants being against taking little knives on planes bothers me. My mini Swiss knife is so dull it barely cuts through a rose stem.

    Shouldn’t they also want to ban sharp pencils, knitting needles, parkas with removable cords and long scarves?

    When I was in the army, I saw a sing in the mess hall “Guns not allowed”, and I started singing myself"oohhh you’re in the army now"
