    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 was expelled in a unanimous vote. The fate of Khalid Caraballo remains unknown at this time.

    Like thousands of others in Hampton Roads, Khalid Caraballo plays with airsoft guns. Caraballo and his friend Aidan were suspended because they shot two other friends who were with them while playing with the guns as they waited for the school bus.

    The two seventh graders say they never went to the bus stop; they fired the airsoft guns while on Caraballo's private property.

    Aidan’s father, Tim Clark, told WAVY.com what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm.

    If anything, at the most, it is a police issue since it didn't happen on school property.

    Well then we agree. And throwing the replica firearm in the trash is certainly a parents prerogative. But not the schools.

Even if your anti gun or anti kids playing and having fun in sports that could injure them, this charge is FALSE. Oh, and they were in their own yard making it none of the schools business.

    Have parents and administrators lost their minds? This is getting out of control. Thank God my kid is grown up.

    I can remember growing up playing war games, dodge ball, king of the hill, etc. Sometimes someone brought a sling shot to school for show and tell.

    Guess super soakers are out of the question for school also

    Parents should teach there kids what is play and what is real when it comes to life.

    I think I long for the 50's and 60's for kids today as far as growing up.

    What wrong with playing with it in the front yard? Kids all across the country do that.....
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
