Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.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.
The simple facts are, like it or not, agree with it or not, that community has a law against most uses of airsoft guns and these children were in violation of that law. The school is involved because it is the school that is held responsible when something happens at a school bus stop.
Even the local police confirm this. They generally don't look to enforce unless the airsofts are not being used responsibly, but they were not being used responsibly in this case. Not to mention the OP recalls that just a couple days prior police had been called and the children likely warned.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
This should be no business of the school's. They should have no ability to suspend these kids for possessing such a weapon at home. Even if it were a real rifle, they shouldn't have any say. It was not on school property. It was on private property. Even if the use was irresponsible (and since two other kids did get shot, it must have been), that doesn't justify any action by the school. It would be the other boys' parents' place to take any action they wished if harm was done.
