Ya.... I'm 99.999% sure that they don't use "dropped" like that. Legislation is "introduced". I'm still not entirely sure what the end goal of this legislation is for.If you hang around the capitol much, as one must do to get a bill introduced and considered, you tend to pick up the capitol insider jargon. It’s easy to forget that others haven’t done so. And yes, this is an example of why we keep losing. We argue over syntax and nuances, become annoyed with each other, and walk away instead of cooperating to get things done. This thread is a perfect example. We’re now spending our energy arguing with each other and being irritated instead of helping Derek get his bill considered and passed.
That said, my wife is a professional child safety technician, and she affirms that drowning is #1, car crashes are #2, and guns #3. It varies a little depending on whose statistics you look at, but guns are NEVER #1 unless you listen to Moms Demand Action or the Brady campaign.
And yes, when the time comes we should all advocate for the bill and the curriculum it specifies.
