Bring A Cartoon Gun To School Day?

Published by at 5:39 pm under All General Discussions

This post is not a call to toy arms. And it is not serious, it is just my knee-jerk response to blatant, rampant stupidity:

A 10-year-old Alexandria boy who brought a toy gun to school on Tuesday has been charged.

The boy, whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said.

That kid’s family should sue the pants off the police and school. A toy gun is not a weapon. And false arrest and false charges are against the law. Where will this insanity end? If there ever was a reason to close down public schools in favor of private schools this is it.

I am half tempted to call for a day of protest across this nation. To really push back against stupid bureaucrats. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a national ‘bring a cartoon gun to school’ day?  Could you imagine the mess as millions of kids were charged with carrying a weapon that is actually a drawing? Could you imagine what a school would be like with 90% of its kids suspended and in the court system?

Just imagine the PR disaster…..

Sadly, I would never put my kids through the trauma. But there may come a day!

Update: Forgot about this previous story - talk about stuck on stupid!

A 2nd grader has been suspended from school in Loveland for a make believe game he was playing.

The 7-year-old says he was trying to save the world. But school administrators say he broke a key rule during his pretend play.

Apparently an active imagination is now against the rules in schools. Seriously shut these moronic disasters down and give parent vouchers to go to a real institute of learning. As it is now, our kids are at serious risk of being dumbed-down, not lifted up.

    RE the imaginary grenade in Colorado, a gent on Protein Wisdom had this comment:

    “Probably best this kid learned early, else he might have waited until adulthood to try and save the world with a wishful idea.
    Then they’d have nailed him to a tree.”

    and this from a comment at the Denver Post:

    “Just as well. He would only get an imaginary education at a place like this…”

    After a few months of government-sponsored and media-promoted hysteria over guns, the mass roundup of toddlers and preteens wielding high capacity pointyfingers is hardly surprising.

    Too late. The public education systems are already dumbing kids down. Don’t you remember how you and LJStrata taught me more while helping with my homework than I learned in school. And I’m your oldest.
