Clear Backpacks.

Can't carry a semi automatic rifle and can be obviated by a sheet of paper.

I'm sure the students are glad of a good faith effort to protect them. (This is sarcasm.)

The last time someone on the Café used "obviate" he used it incorrectly. When I pointed that out to him an horrific battle ensued: apparently someone who has an e-mail address from Harvard can't be wrong.

Given that, I won't point out that it doesn't mean what you're trying to use it to mean. It's simply too dangerous.

I'll yield to your superior knowledge. Thank you for the polite correction.

What I mean is that a piece of paper will make a transparent backpack opaque or at least merely translucent.

I doubt this solution would satisfy anyone.

Please, don't tempt the 3d printer folks to produce transparent stuff.

There is no arms race with malice. It's contagious and updates by attention/evolution. Look at antibiotics....or mousetraps Smile

I miss the humor in this subject.
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.

I'll admit, the subject is not funny and the jokes are obscure and silly.

But the solution that has been offered is is laughable.

Well, considering the size of that high school, the store that sells transparent back packs, should have a record breaking sale.

I "sorta" missed the humor, too, ringmaster...........

Note the reference to Douglas Adams in the OP. Wondering if we'll have a "laser pointer" incident in news soon.

in the mean time - outgassing plastics, publicity donations, and more "somethings" which must be done. Smile

Clear backpacks are clear (see what I did there?) unconstitutional abridgements of First Amendment rights. Apparently.

I don't see where the First Amendment promised anyone "privacy!"

I don't know why the students are against clear backpacks. It's obvious that clear backpacks would have stopped the Parkland shooting....and Columbine.....and VA Tech.....and Sandy Hook.....etc.

While 'privacy' was part of his argument, I think his first amendment argument was mostly based on students not being able to express themselves by having whatever backpack they wanted to have. Of course, if that really was a first amendment argument, I suppose any school dress code could be argued to be a first amendment violation. (Which has been argued about before within the courts.)

Utterly Ark B material.

Please, next it will be wet tee shirt searches for concealed carry (look at earlier stories about search used as pretext for abuse)... just say no. Really. Sad. Smile

What if the person has a transparent rifle in the clear backpack?

The idea is not to tempt the clever ones or taunt the nasty ones. From last week: "Please, don't tempt the 3d printer folks to produce transparent stuff. "
