The Political Concerns of 7th Graders

As my first period class filed into the room this morning, these were their comments on the result of last night's election:

"Obama is stupid!"
"He's going to take away our guns! He's going to take away our guns!"

I had to smile because the first thing that came to my mind when I heard this was the opening scene from the movie Mean Girls: " And on the third day, God created the Remington bolt-action rifle, so that Man could fight the dinosaurs. And the homosexuals."

That movie is great. I love the scene in the girl's bathroom where Damion syas to that girl, "Danny DeVito, I love your work!"

My question is, what 7th grader has a gun already?
