We just reported yesterday on the story from Virginia Beach in which two seventh graders were suspended from school for playing with toy guns on private property. Now WAVY.com has reported that the 2 boys have been kicked out of the school. Read the original story here and watch news VIDEO of the story.
“VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A seventh grade Virginia Beach student previously suspended for shooting an airsoft gun has been expelled, WAVY.com has learned.During a hearing Tuesday morning, Aidan Clark and Khalid Caraballo were expelled in a unanimous vote. Clark was offered the option of attending an alternative school, but his father, Tim, told WAVY News’ Andy Fox he will be homeschooled.
Caraballo will attend an alternative school.”
As you might have read in our original article, the toy guns were never brought to school or even onto the school bus. The boys were playing on a private yard and were no where near the school bus or bus stop (actually they were more than 70 yards away). So what’s the reason for this expulsion, other than the fact that the school wants to make a statement about guns, even little plastic ones that shoot plastic bbs.
Listen to the 911 call from the mother who called it in: http://media2.wavy.com/audio/Carew911call.wav
WAVY.com located the 911 caller and spoke to her. She confirmed Khalid was taking target practice using a zombie hunter airsoft gun to kill the zombies. There was also a net behind the target to catch the plastic pellets.
The caller also knew the gun wasn’t real and said so, “This is not a real one, but it makes people uncomfortable. I know that it makes me (uncomfortable), as a mom, to see a boy pointing a gun,” she told the 911 dispatcher.
So because this woman was uncomfortable with what another mother’s child was doing on his own private property with a toy gun we now have the school getting involved and expelling the boy and his friend from school. Score one for the busybodies of the world. Score zero for common sense.
For those that don’t know what airsoft guns are, these are NOT real firearms and cannot be used as such. The use springs to shoot small plastic bbs and about every kid I knew growing up had one or wanted one. And no, they did not shoot an eye out.
Thanks to one of our readers for letting us know the school’s contact info in case anyone has questions about the school’s policy:
