Must-Have School Supplies for 2012

Aug 20, 2012

You may dread the end of summer, but returning to school does have its highlights - literally! We’re talking highlighters, backpacks, binders and other back to school supplies that are fun to shop for, organize and show off to your friends at the beginning of the school year.

Character Flash Drives

Be the envy of your friends with one of these 9 Mimico character USB flash drives. Find your favorite character from Star Wars like Darth Vader or R2-D2, or from Batman like the Joker, Robin or Batman himself! Keep your important files safe and organized. They may be a bit on the pricy side at $22 a pop, but we think they’re worth it!

Pocket Dictionaries

Boring dictionaries are on the school supply list year after year. But no one wants to tote around a big, heavy, clunker! Why not invest in a compact pocket dictionary and thesaurus? They’re light weight and easy to store in a small pocket or compartment of your backpack. And best of all, some are printed in full color, making it fun to look up words!

No one is given a gun. A person has to acquire a permit, and then has to buy a gun for themselves.  Okay, yes, mental health is an obvious issue. But it needs to be for specific mental health problems. It can't be just because someone has a mental illness, because many mental illnesses won't effect the operation and use of a gun, or make it more likely for a person to hurt someone else with a gun. I support background checks which would include mental health history, but only if it's done right. Similarly, the guy who killed 49 people in Orlando was taken off the FBI watchlist. This tells me that there are flaws with the way that the watchlist is currently being used. Once that system is redone, then we can restrict those on it from buying firearms. But at its' current success rate? Not a chance.  And it's not about what's necessary...well to an extent it is, but hear me out. Weapons are used for self defense. No matter how many gun laws you have, criminals will still use firearms in their crimes. Citizens require at least an equal amount of protection that criminals use to break the law.  In other words, if you were to be the victim of gun violence, would you rather have with you a knife or a gun? Would you honestly bring a knife to a gun fight?  First of all, I agree with you. Mental health is definitely an issue! But together these issues can be addressed!!!! And as I said earlier, we can control our weapons. The government can create a harder way to get a gun or any weapon. Look at criminal records!!!! Even before getting a permit, or a license, CHECK THE RECORDS!!! This will help prevent these mass shootings.

The amendmant is there for a reason. Weapons are useful for protection. Protection is going to keep us alive. The human population, as a nation, and as a world! If we take away our weapons now we are all dead! We don't want that.  Now, killing 50 people in the Orlando shooting. That is just not right at all. It was not the gun's fault, it was the person. Same thing with the death of Christina Grimmie. Now, I personally believe that we should not take guns away, but we should find a harder process into buying a gun or some other weapon, and we should be trained properly! Look at people's criminal records, look at their other records. I don't care! As long as we still have protection, but less mass shootings! Omg, so true.
