"Students Say No to Guns"
That's how station WALB (Alabany, GA) carries the story, adding "Some Albany youth pledge to stay away from guns. "
Actually, the story says they swore "to stay away from gun violence."
More "security theater." One of the sponsors, the US Attorney's Office, commented that they "think that we need a response to violent crimes that are taking over here in our community..." So the solution is to make a bunch of people promise they won't commit violent crime. For Pete's sake, they didn't include the "stick a thousand needles in my eye" part, without which no gradeschool promise is binding!
