    YOu are right. Shame on Montecresto for putting the Word expelled in the title of the OP.

    I didn't.. Cap guns, nerf guns, video games.. Hell whatever ___________ Insert liberal do-gooder mentality here, and you get the picture. Personally I wouldn't allow my kids to shoot each other with any toy that shoots a projectile at any amount of speed, even though me and my friends shot each other with pellet guns back when we were kids, I consider myself very lucky I didn't lose an eye. My oldest son when he was 5 almost lost an eye to a foam disk shot out of a nerf gun. He had to wear a patch for a week. As to the OP, school shouldn't be in the business of policing things outside of their control no matter how much sense it might seem to make. That's the problem in this nation, there are too many people that think they should be in someone's business. It's supposed to be a free country and was pretty much while I was growing up, but more an more the places where we are free are dwindling. That doesn't seem like a direction worth pursuing if our ultimate goal is to continue being free..

    That is simply still a technicality and doesn't matter to what I said. Their suspension is of a length that it will severely harm their record. The school should have no place punishing these kids at all for their actions because it wasn't on school property at all.

    Actually under certain state codes a firearm could include airsoft and paintball guns. I know NY specifically defines a firearm as something that propels a projectile capable of doing harm by explosive3, air, or force. The code is actually found under the environmental section of the laws and can cause a lot of problems. Technically according to such a definition your arm could be considered a firearm.

    This is rare but I 100% agree with you. Just read the story and saw the video twice just to make sure I wasn't missing anything here. Why is the school getting involve with something that happened on private property? If the boys were shooting at the bus stop, then I would have to understand the school getting involved. I agree with Maggie as far safety is concern, but I have to lean to the right a little on this issue because I think the school over step their boundaries.

    I think it is a trend that will continue. Everybody wants to be important and they will overreach but a parent like this should sue and make it as public as posible that the school had no right to do what they did so maybe next time the school will think twice about trying to run private citizens lives.

    Here's from the wiki:

    This is also the case for the laws in each state. However, in some major cities and population centers the definition of a firearm within their respected ordinances includes propulsion by spring or compressed air, thus making airsoft subject to applicable laws. For example, airsoft guns within the state of California can only be bought by a person above the age of 18. However, no laws indicate an age requirement to sell airsoft guns. The seller must only verify that the buyer is 18 or older. A gun has to have an orange tip during shipping.

    If I read the story correctly at least one of the kids is named "Carballo". If they were being smart about this they would claim that the kid is here illegally and he has to be educated under Plyler v Doe and sue the school district for racial discrimination.
