    Fine, but I don't see how that is any of the school's business one way or the other.

    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.

    That's some Liberal bs right there. I would get it if they brought them to school, but come explosion? That's a extreme.

    I don't either and I think they overstepped their bounds on this.

    I am sure the father can sue and get his kid back in school, but it will be very expensive.

    This is not a school issue, they shouldn't have been involved at all. Hope the parents lawyer up and sue the the living crap out of the school.

    How can you think a 6 to 8mm plastic bb entering your eye socket at 170 to 550 feet per second isn't dangerous? Without eye protection, they're dangerous.

    First they came for your real guns, then the BB guns, and finally the nerf guns.. Damn bastards..

    Airsoft pellets don't go at "high velocity" unless you have high end stuff used for training and even then its velocities are less than a BB guns and more importantly the projectiles they shoot lose whatever little energy they have VERY quickly. The stuff sold as toys are just that toys. You really have to be trying to hurt yourself to get hurt with one of those. Like breaking it into a sharp object trying.
