When schools crack down on students for bringing water guns, obviously toy guns, and fingers in the shape of guns to school, I think it betrays the true motives of the anti-gun agenda. We have moved past keeping schools safe, to creating a stigma around a tool. It is ironic that these “gun free zone” elementary schools are some of the most vulnerable places because of their inability to defend against intruders with bad intentions, while show-and-tell has become a public shaming process to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way” –Eric Holder.
The latest incident out of Maryland has got a kindergartner suspended for 10 days after peeing his pants during an interrogation for showing his friend his plastic, orange tipped cap gun on the school bus, according to the Daily Caller.
School officials at Dowell Elementary School in the town of Lusby proceeded to question the five-year-old for over two hours before finally calling his mother, whom The Post also does not name.
The principal eventually called the boy’s mother at 10:50 a.m. By that time, the five-year-old had wet his pants (which the mother called highly unusual).
The principal told the boy’s mother that the boy had simulated shooting someone on the bus with the offending novelty. However, both the boy and his older sister, a first-grader, say the principal is not telling the truth.
The principal said that if the gun had been loaded with a “cap”, the police would have been called because the school would have to consider the device an explosive. This is a kindergartner we are talking about, who may very well have just experienced the most traumatic event up to this point in his life, because of the insane actions of the school system and principal. What happened to the human element in dealing with children? Why are schools “crying wolf” so that an orange tipped cap gun brought to school is treated the same way as a .45? The only explanation I can think of is that too many of the people running these schools subscribe to the same theory about guns as Eric Holder, believing that lies and fear are an appropriate way to influence behavior.
The family of the suspended boy has hired a prominent attorney who deals with cases of schools hysterically reacting to thing that look like weapons, but are not. The lawyer has said the 5 year old boy’s age is a key factor in why the family is taking action against the overzealous school. Check out the Daily Caller article to see a list of other similar insane reactions from schools over the past few months.
