How in the world can your son have the time and privacy to build a pipe bomb while living with you?
Seriously? Where your parents with you 24x7 when you were a teen? A couple of hours on the internet one day, a trip to home depot on another, then a couple of hours putting them together!

How do teens have enough privacy to drink? How do teens have enough privacy to get high? How do teens have enough privacy to get pregnant? You can't be with them 24x7.
I don't know if home depot has 100% everything you need to make a pipe bomb - the fertilizer they sell may not be the right concentration.
Well, I was at school from 8-4, then had sports practice from 4-6, home at 6:30, dinner, homework, then bed. So even though my parents weren't with me 24/7, I sure didn't have time to build any pipe bombs, or the money to. I didn't have time to drink much or do any drugs, and my parents knew where I was and who I was with 99% of the time. And I'm not really old - 30. It's called parenting, and doing it right isn't easy, fast, or cheap.
So, you accounted for 5 out of 7 days... and sounds like you never went to a friend's house, or went on a date? And since you are only 30, I'm going to bet that you aren't the parent of a teen, maybe not even a parent. I've already raised mine... he never got into any trouble... but I wasn't with him 24x7. He played sports, was active in Scouts, was in JROTC... yet he still had time for a social life away from home.

I know as a kid growing up that I did a lot of stupid things that my parents weren't aware of. You can only train them the way you want them to act, and then bust that butt if they get caught doing otherwise.
I didn't go to many sleepovers, most of them were with the church. Didn't really date anyone till I graduated high school. I have a 3 year old.
But I agree with your last paragraph for sure.

If schools have to allow LTC carry, does this mean zoos will become zoos again?
Maybe schools will become zoos.

More than they are already.
Reading into current events, they already are.

And I was very disappointed that the governor did not bring up armed licensed parents at all - they are already vetted by the state, let them carry.

Re: Gov. Greg Abbott announced a new school safety plan and proposed changes to gun laws

He was 17. If bent on a rampage, he will find a way. No gun safe or gun lock was going to stop him. I would want to punish the parents for failing at their main job - parenting. How in the world can your son have the time and privacy to build a pipe bomb while living with you?
I have a daughter - when she reaches 17, I want her to be able to protect herself at home if I am not there. But discipline and gun safety start at a very early age.
