    Fixed it for you.

    How terrible that some bratty kid, in the process of being brainwashed, should dare to use his imagination in ways that his captors find disagreeable.

    And here, we see exactly the result that the corrupt vermin behind this brainwashing are trying to produce. Someone who sincerely believes that allowing children to play in ways that hint in any way at imaginary violence will lead them inevitably to real-life violence; and that we have to brutally suppress their imagination in order to prevent this from happening.

    Meanwhile, my generation that grew up playing “cops and robbers” or “cowboys and Indians”, with toy guns that didn't even have the modern pussified orange muzzles, remains as it always has, less prone to unjustified violence than the younger generations that have been subjected to this brainwashing.

    Imagination and play are vital parts of learning. They are vital parts of independent thought, especially among children.

    Not so vital to producing a generation of pussified sheeple, who do whatever Big Brother tells them to do without question.

    I'm not saying they need to answer to the call of the government, but there has to be more constructive ways that don't involve pretending to shoot somebody to use one's imagination.

    Uh, no. Not really.
    Nearly ALL of my recess days were spent playing games that would have killed someone if it was "real". Cops and Robbers, swordsmen, wrestlers, etc. That is a normal part of child development, seriously. Normal child development is the ONLY thing that is needed in a learning environment, especially at the age were talking about. Kids playing around at recess shouldn't be influenced by anyone but themselves, excepting the very rare cases where they put themselves in real danger. I can understand having a problem with play fighting in the classroom, but that has everything to do with the fact that they're in class instead of outside; whether they're acting like they have guns or not is beside the issue of whether they're paying attention in class.

    My problem is essentially with trying to teach kids not to imagine stuff. It's like telling them they're bad if they think of the word "elephant". The anti-gun rules are just too broad; they make monsters out of normal children.

    Playing and use of imagination do not need to conform to your Procrustean ideas of “constructive”. In fact to do so would certainly defeat the point thereof.

    These children aren't being educated, their being indoctrinated. I'm glad my children were home-schooled.

    [/FONT][/COLOR]Ok so i think those "zero tolerance" rules are a bit drastic when it comes to "playing" with imaginary guns but i also think this bill is also a bit drastic supporting defunding of these schools that have these rules.





    Someone should donate some real guns to those schools, and maybe a few thousand targets with pictures of Liberals, progressives, socialist and communist on them, so that the schools can teach proper gun safety, marksmanship and target selection. Perhaps even fund pictures of Marx to put in toilets and urinals.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
