    That is neither the topic or point of the op! The boy being expelled for the rest of the school year on a firearms charge IS!!

    They were suspended, not expelled. Read the story. The headline is bull****.

    Is this the toy version or the replica version? There seems to be a conflict with regard to the description.

    Define "highspeed". I had a BB gun when I was young and a range set up in our back yard. Still have both eyes and never hurt anyone.
    But it also never went out in the "front" yard either.

    Bull****. I suggest you retake your physics classes, you forgot a WHOLE bunch. To hurt themselves they would have to be literally be shot point blank in the eye. And even then they would be hard pressed to be seriously hurt. They should NEVER have been suspended let alone expelled. Hell what if they went hunting for squirrels or rabbits with a .22 on their time and property? They should be expelled then? If so then you would have to expel half the students in the states Idaho Montana and Wyoming. Its a bunch of horse crap is what this whole situation is.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    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.
    me too, we carried pocket knives with no incidents, I even carrried shotguns and rifles in my truck to school so we could hunt afterwards. But those were the days of true discipline before liberal ideas took over stripping faculty and administrators of any power to take care of the kids with ****ty parents.
