    Its up to the PARENTS to put an end to these Anti-Gun fanatics imposing their 'agenda' on innocent children.
    They are no better than the psych-shooters they are so afraid of.

    STAND AND FIGHT! They probably thought the NRA was only for 'gun owners'!!

    When I was a kid I loved my slingshot. There were many glass bottles that met their demise at the business end of that deadly device. To think I stood right out there in an empty lot in the middle of downtown Memphis shooting those poor little bottles and no one noticed...or was it that no one cared. I didn't realize what a criminal I was in my youth.

    Wow. I clicked on the OP's link and scrolled down to all of the links showing children being punished for idiotic reasons.

    Parents have got to stand up to this crap!

    It is nothing short of the anti-gunner's indoctrination of the youth - teaching them that "YOU will be punished for evil guns!"

    A friend of mine was called to school because her little boy was nibbling on a cracker at lunch time and said "look, it looks like a gun!"

    My kids are out of school, but I guarantee you that if this had happened to my child, I would start a poop storm at the school board meeting and put a stop to this crap.

    Until parents stand up to the school leaders, this is going to keep happening across the country.

    It's gotten so ridiculous. Today you can be expelled for pretending a toy top is a gun. What's next? Will kids start being expelled for saying the word "gun"? Or "bang"?

    It's laughable hysteria if it wasn't for the fact that the laughable hysterics are in positions of power.

    We need a reset but I don't know what it will take to get one. People with irrational fears are hard to deal with and almost impossible to change.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    We call them idiots, but I have a feeling that they know exactly what they are doing.

    Zero tolerance, what a concept.

    I checked out the list of other "incidents" at the bottom of the page and all I can say is WOW!

    When my son went to school he got suspended the last 3 days of school by getting up out of his seat on the bus . ( He was in a regular high school and he is special needs ) and when my lawyer ask the Principle why he said " Because he could " .
    Once the School System and administration makes up their narrow minds it is hard to make change . They will spend all our tax monies to fight it.

    In these so called violations (gun shaped items) it will be hard to change this pattern .

    As a kid in school i was a Cub Scout then a Boy Scout. On days we had troop meetings (In the school after hours) I could wear my Boy Scout uniform to school. This included an official Boy Scout pocket knife hanging from my belt. No one considered it as a weapon, it was a tool. No one ever batted an eye. An i had no intention of being a jerk with it, because my parents tolled me the day I was. I would not only be out of the BSA but there would be harsher punishment.

    Check the links in the story, and other stories. Kids have been suspended for just talking about guns.

    We are losing our liberties, but I think you already knew that.
