If I had young kids now days I'd send them to a private school or homeschool them. Although I have to say, the schools around here are still fairly "normal". The local HS even has a "Christmas Concert" I don't know how many more years they'll get away with it.

    I looked at the picture in the article...that's a gun? You have to be kidding me. Grandpa gets an "F" for that sad looking thing. I hope it's not a Glock.
    Actually, my "then" ended (for my second retirement) in June 2012.
    Lots of 'guns and Bibles' in the rural areas of the South. Of ALL the cops, admin, and other staff I knew, none would have even thought of a paper gun as a problem.

    You're only '55'? Just a baby...

    I just cringe when I read stories like this one. I know we boys brought cap guns to school. The teachers
    did get a bit concerned about the occasional spark and the smoke, so we were allowed to play with them but not
    use the caps.

    For those too young to know, there were rolls of paper, like a roll or tape, which had a percussive embedded
    every 1/2 inch or so. Each time you pulled the trigger the paper advanced and the hammer hit the
    percussive "dimple" on the tape--- emitting a tad of flame and a bit of smoke, along with a loud "bang" sound.

    These were permitted for play whereas water pistols were not-- since they caused real problems with kids
    getting soaked and then getting mad about being soaked.

    Oh my how we have changed. From that to giving kids grief over a pointed finger or a piece of paper.

    Sad.

    A paper gun? that looks like she tore a corner of a piece of paper to write a note and changed her mind. Searching a child over that?

    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Did you miss the "++" ?
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    This little girl's face is heartbreaking. Looks more like an "L" than any gun I've ever seen! What the hell are people thinking?!?!?

    Remember making the triangles out of napkins or paper and using them as footballs during lunchtime? Buddy would hold his fingers up and you would try to get a field goal by flicking it with your fingers? I am surprised they haven't banned that yet....almost lost an eye during 6th grade
    EDIT: The schools would ban them saying that they looked like Chinese throwing stars.
