A plastic 'rifle' the size of a quarter... Kids were "traumatized"... Seriously?

6-Year-Old Given Detention, Forced to Apologize After Bringing This Seriously Tiny Plastic Gun on School Bus | Video | TheBlaze.com

I posted this in the 2A forum because I am a firm believer that this mentality is used to chip away our RTKBA. The more students they can indoctrinate with the mentality that any device that resembles a firearm is evil and must be reported, then they will be that much farther down the road of their ultimate agenda. Anyway, if any Mods object to my placement, please feel free to move it wherever it's more appropriate.

The more I see these stories the more I worry. I have a 2 year old and a 5 month old and soon enough they will be in school...

I have close relatives in law enforcement, am I going to be one of those dad's that end up on the news because my kid decides to draw a picture of there relative? Or worse, what if they take a picture for "show and tell" ?

What's more surprising to me in these stories sometimes is the reaction of the parents. They seem to be like "oh, well. he is six and doesn't understand zero tolerance". If this was my kid there would be NO apology and if they tried disciplinary action for something like this the school officials and I would be having a SERIOUS disagreement about educational philosophy.

People seem to keep acting like school officials are somehow actually in charge of their child's education. That is NOT the case. As a parent YOU are in charge of your child's education, and it's time more people started treating it as such.

If there was any question as to how we got to where we are with zero tolerance:

You are mistaken... your children will not be in school... they will be in an indoctrination center. The next generation will likely be the one that is disarmed...

Hence my fears. Guess the time to take a 2nd job is now, so I can save up and send them to private school.

From the article said:
A 6-year-old kindergarten student in Massachusetts is accused of causing a “disturbance” and “traumatizing” other students by bringing a very tiny plastic toy gun on the school bus last week.
Traumatized children? Baloney. The only ones traumatized are the zero-tolerance edict-makers who cannot distinguish between guiding children and traumatizing them over brow-beating inanities.


The “gun” brandished by the young boy was barely bigger than a quarter.
"Brandishing" a 1.5in plastic doohickey. Yeah. That's like saying I brandished my oatmeal cookie, or my math homework. Yes, indeedy, I held it in such a way that others saw it. Yup. But, brandishing? Not hardly.


Additionally, the boy who reportedly yelled about the toy gun on the bus has also been forced to apologize.
:pat:


Apparently, the apologies went to the bus driver. Can't imagine what trauma that idiot actually endured, at the hands of 6yr old kids. In the wrong line of work, obviously. Geez.


Crane said her son did not equate the extremely small plastic toy gun with an actual firearm or weapon.
Of course not. He's not stupid and brainwashed (yet). He's 6yrs old. The other children were ~6yrs of age as well. They're parroting the insanity they've been taught, while utterly failing to appreciate the value of gun-proofing.


Gotta wonder what value education certificates really hold, these days.

Seen recently in a decidely non-progressive publication:

Opening: K-6 teacher wanted; Early childhood development, English and History focus; No anti-gunner brainwashing desired; Requirement to use the brain you were born with, at all times; Sense of proportion and justice; Highly-accurate and active BS meter. Will pay seriously above-market for any sign of any such teacher in existence ... Will fly you out first-class, put you up in the best hotel, assign you to mentor two dozen other teachers, to help rid them of their socialist, anti-child, anti-liberty tendencies.

i know there are some fine educators out there, but they are definitely the exception these days. it's this level of decision-making that makes all the talk about arming school personnel very scary indeed.

Disagree. There are many really good ones. Trouble is, they're captured by a system that's destructive and demeaning, one that focuses on form over function, one in which the inmates are now running the asylum (so to speak). And, actually, the really good ones aren't the ones we hear about. They simply keep on-task, doing what they do, and doing it well. That doesn't make headlines in the way some fool, knee-jerk administrator or bus driver does (as this article shows).

The good ones just keep their head down and do what they can to not draw the ire of the elected bodies that create, and promote, these insanely stupid no tolerance policies...

When they reach the age where the kids are first learning about our country's fight for independence... Are they told that the Minutemen used QTips and pool noodles to fight off the British?

Statue Monument Sculpture Memorial Figurine

What did little George Washington use to chop down that cherry tree, a spork?

Did Patrick Henry say "Give me liberty, or not; whatever?"

Does the Second Amendment allow us to go sleeveless in the summer?

Did the Knight save the damsel in distress from the dragon with a Kidde fire extinguisher? (I was gonna say super soaker... but that's a gun shape=VERBOTEN!)

Brandishing an oatmeal cookie is acceptable; unless, of course, you've chewed it down to resemble a pistol.

...some situations BEG for a piranha lawyer...this is one...
Ya know, I don't think it would do any good... really... It's social mores.

If School boards are elected, there needs to be a grass roots movement to elect only those who will uphold the Constitution, forget Nanny state Political Correctness, and allow teaching.

Yeah, insane isn't it? I mentioned the cookie and homework specifically because recent examples exist of both those sorts of things being seen as "gun" shapes and the li'l tykes taken to task.

I'm still wondering in what way the bus driver was traumatized, to the point of a kid being forced to apologize to the driver. :scratchchin:

...that's a great idea, but it would require involved voters...we seem to have a problem finding many of those...even for our childrens' sakes...sad...

...the intent is not to soothe the driver, but to humiliate and break the "perpetrator"...

Sounds like the 6yo kid has more smarts than the whole of the administration.
