    These events are link together by hoodwinkers. Don't be surprised if investigators found some NGO/s or politically affiliated are behind the scene characters. First of all get hold of teachers/principals involved and more and more revelations will come out.

    Is it prohibited by law to use or keep walkie talkie and air riffle? What kind of communist country we live in?

    Law abiding citizens should have the right to bear arms. That’s the only way people can be made stronger than the government

    Do you need Walkie Talkies and air rifle to conduct psychology classes? Are they trying to make weapons familiar to the audience to overcome weapon phobia?
