We have reported on a whole host of stories where children have suspended or expelled form school for simple acts like using their hand as a gun and making gun noises.
Other children have been punished for wearing shirts that support the NRA. And of course we all remember the student that was suspended for holding a half-eaten pop-tart as a gun. One student was even suspended for merely TALKING about guns on a school bus in a completely non-violent way.
Well now an Oklahoma Representative is trying to put a stop to the “zero tolerance police” that has become a political correctness tool for gun control activists.
We all want our school children to be safe, but demonizing guns in such a way that discourages kids from being kids just to push a gun control agenda through the education system does not make then safer.
According to Kfor.com,
Rep. Sally Kern’s bill is to eliminate some grey areas and prevent kids from getting into trouble for reasons like using your finger or hand to resemble a weapon or a pencil or pen to mock a gun.
Having a toy gun on campus is just one of House Bill 2351′s gun-related provisions.
If the “Common Sense Zero Tolerance Act” passes, students could not be punished in any way for reasons like having toy weapons five inches or less made of plastic, wood or snap-together building blocks.
Kids would also have the right to make gun noises with their mouths and wear clothing that supports the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms which doesn’t apply to students who are required to wear school uniforms.
Also students wouldn’t get in trouble for drawing a picture of a firearm, military vehicle, aircraft or any object that protects constitutional freedoms.
Another peculiar point in the bill talks about pastries and food in the shape of a weapon.
While many schools are considering armed guards and allowing certain trained educators and administrators to be armed in order to deter mass shootings, this bill should be a breath of fresh air to stop the madness and focus on the thins that actually protect the students.
We have reported on at least 20 or more incidents in the past year alone of students being suspended for completely innocent actions, all in the name of stopping another Sandy Hook. But what these schools are really stopping is the freedom of a child to be a child.
One 7 year old student was even suspended for pretending to be like his dad who was a marine. He was holding his pencil like a gun and was therefore a threat to everyone at the school.
Although I’m sure some anti-gunners will completely freak out at the thought of children having Nerf guns at school, this bill helps the focus shift from punishing children for having an imagination to going after the real threats schools face.
