Hi Michael,

I've signed the petition & donated.

Amazing! The policeman telling you should not be letting the world know
about it via the Internet.

You really should not be training kids how to fire rifles in a school
playground, on a school day.

These cadets or young trainees should be in a kind of cadet barracks. I
used to go to one when I was an army cadet.

Wishing you well.
