It doesn't help when the reason local law enforcement can't deal with it because they're stupid.

caveat. I know a lot of talented people in the law enforcement side, whom I respect immensely. this is a bad apple problem.

Trying to sell 3d printer gun parts fails the body of the Constitution. Common Defense.

I agree with the other comments, charter schools are parasites.
Alternatives in education need to be part of the system, not an alternative.
Of course that means actually funding schools properly.
that seems to be a real problem for some people. I don't have kids, and I have no problem paying the slightly outrageous school taxes. does help property value.
