Teen Drinking Is Down

Postby SHMIV » Fri, 12 May 2017 23:08:10

According to Time, teens aren't drinking as much as they used to:

http://time.com/4776249/teen-drinking-l ... years-cdc/

I don't know that I would be inclined to give much weight to that, though. They referenced surveying the youth. I remember such surveys, when I was a teenager. I was given them to fill out, on more than one occasion.

Oh, I filled them out, as I was told. However, I lied. I know that I'm not the only one who has ever done so, either; these things were discussed, later. They were administered at school, and I did not believe that they were anonymous, as they told me. So, according to the survey that I turned in, I was a perfect angel. I wasn't about to possibly and inadvertently rat myself out. And, most of my peers were of the same mindset.

I'd say that catching untethered teens at the mall would be a better method of obtaining input (especially if you offer them money to do it), but do teens hang out at malls, anymore? Or have the malls, that still exist, put and end to that?

These just remind me of those about liking or owning firearms and how many, it's none of your damn business! This is also another reason why I laugh when I see something from the anti-gun libotards in saying gun ownership is down, that is complete bull as I'm sure more people just keep it quiet today!

Exactly. I think most gun owners treat inquiries about whether/what kind/how many guns are owned by them the same way the democrats treat inquiries into voter fraud: DENY DENY DENY. Sorry, buddy; can't help ya, I'm deaf, dumb, blind and indifferent.

Gun-crazy? Me? I'd say the gun-crazy ones are the ones that don’t HAVE one.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.
