This short video makes me nervous about leaving the house. Keep those baggy clothes people away from me, please.

    Although I understand the purpose of the ad, I find the execution laughable. You need to be SCARED! OH NOES! KIDS WITH BAGGY CLOTHES! WITH AN ENTIRE ARSENAL IN THEIR PANTS! ELEVENTY!!!ONE!1|lll!

    If a kid wanted to carry a weapon, they'd carry it in their immense backpack, alongside the five binders, three textbooks, and their laptop.

    Honestly – a pump-action in his pant-leg? A machine pistol + clip tucked in his waistband?

    Most kids wearing baggy pants (or very low rise) are challenged to hold their pants up, and their waistbands are MORE visible (all their waistbands, too!)

    Dumb and Dumber! (and I'm not talking about the kids)

      I know the ad was hokey. I assume that it was produced by a school board in an attempt to justify a dress code. The reason I found it interesting is that I simply don't think about what people are carrying around (whether it be baggy clothes or a backpack or whatever). There are approximately 283 MILLION guns in civilian hands in the U.S. http://www.bradycampaign.org/facts/gunsinamerica#… Next time I'm in a store or walking in a crowd, how many of those people are carrying, and it makes me wonder how many of those people I would trust.
