    The schools district's position...School district officials told the station its code of conduct prohibits students from playing with invisible guns.
    Must make sense to them as the school administrators appear to be working with 'invisible brains'.

    With all my work within school districts, I never encountered such stupidity.

    I concur that this is asinine. However, it is what it is. If we send our kids to public schools they're going to be subjected to this kind of ridiculous thinking. At this point I think turning over school boards and electing common sense folks probably won't even help. Things are too far gone. Either send your kids to a private school, home school them, or teach them to abide by the ridiculous rules while they're at school because I don't think we're going to win this fight any time soon.

    The NEA and all down Union controlled schools will expouse the most Regressively Progressive mantra they can get away with. The fact that they get away with it show just how little involvement today's parents of the students care, or pay attention, regardless of the parents' political leanings. This is the 'socialist state' dictating norms, and hiding behind education.

    The Regressivly Progressives call this 'nudging' as a strategy. And they are winning.

    Have you ever considered why the collective unionized education community mocks and attacks home schooled initiatives (Edit Add - and private schools to include christian schools) and children? Especially when a home schooled child wins the national spelling competion? Because it undermines their collective control for formulating the mind of your children into socialist collective thinking, as well as threatens their very existance to show that normal parents can teach children better than mindless educated educational union drones.

    Really?! I wonder if that's actually in writing. This is just taking stupidity to another level. Just when you think things couldn't get any more ridiculous, BAM!

    My son, who just started first grade, loves playing cops and robbers, cowboys and indians, and other typical games boys of his age play. I sure hope none of this crap comes up at his school but if it does, I'm not the type to just roll over...

    Back yonder, in true 'Anti-war-Bush-Hitler hating Sheehan times' (about 2004), my wife drove my project car (old VW Type 4 - with a tricked motor) to drop off the young men at HS. One of the Regressivly Progressivly Educational Drones was protesting on the sidewalk outside of the HS and just assumed that my wife (because of the VW) was also Regressivly Progressivly Leftist and shoved his propaganda in her face. He was so stupid he just thought she was another blond blue eyed hippy chick. Wrong!

    Wow. The wife showed some immediate 'stones' and provided direct feedback to him....... I can remember how hard I was laughing when she finally calmed down and called me......

    After she got out and confronted the idiot in front of all the students, we ended up taking it up to the County School Board and had that idiot shut down.

    Agree, if you get involved, you can make a difference!

    wow .. pew pew and hes suspended? Sounds like he was pew~pewing a revolver and not ah pew~pewpewpewpewpewpewpewpew evil AR-47 so whats the big deal

    I wonder if this teacher moved there from California?

    and all this time I thought F-L-O-R-I-D-A was a conservative gun State.but then Harmony, Fl is close to Orlando the home of Goofy.

    Maybe it is time we start issuing invisible imaginary CCW permits to kids that can show they are responsible citizens for their invisible imaginary firearms & put an end to this Goofy`ness like we do for adults for their real-time ones.

    Since kids in Alaska carry firearms to school to protect themselves along their way to & from school without issues. Maybe they should give that some thought in Chicago too..EH

    When I was growing up ( my family says Im still working on that~my kids call me Pan short for Peter Pan cuz his catch phrase is: I dont wanna to grow up Im a Toys R Us kid ) wed check our trapline on the way to school and would store a backpack in our school locker with knifes & hatches & hammers & conibears & wooden stakes & caught critters < eww what's that smell coming from your locker bro? > & .. while we were going to classes and then check our line again on the way home! GEZ what an issue that would be today; depending MAYBE on where you live I guess....EH



    if yo`r an ol fuddie duddie & cant enjoy the best of Peter Pan then fast forward to 1:58
