Guns may be tools, but knives are not........they are weapons. Around here, if a kid gets caught on school property with a knife, they face some serious much as a full year suspension. When I'se in school (all the '50s, finish up in the '60s), every single boy (even the ones who came to school barefooted) carried a pocket knife, beginning about in the 4th grade. We would've no more used a pocket knife as a weapon than we would've used a ball bat.....never crossed our mind.

Same here. When in High School we all carried a shotgun and rifle in our cars for some road hunting on the way home.

I agree, things have changed. I graduated in '72. We weren't allowed to carry pocket knives, but if you got caught worst would happen is you loose it.

I don't recall ever hearing of a school shooting... Wasn't uncommon the see a rifle or shotgun in the back window of a PU in the parking lot, I don't think that was even in the rule book. Now you hear of honor students expelled because an empty shell was rolling around in the bed of the truck...

Yes things have changed and I don't think for the better. I have carried a pockrt knife starting in fourth grade and used it at times to clean finger nails and teachers never said a thing.

Knives were against the rules, BUT, about the only ones that got confiscated were hawkbills.. We needed a good knife, though, certain ones carried straight razors..
