    Wow, you must been all business when you were a kid.

    As i've said, there is no need for them in a learning environment. That is a stepping stone to other gun violence. Just what I want is my kid getting shot execution style from a kindergartner with a poptart gun. That isn't normal behavior.

    It's not that, it's the concept. You can play without pretending to hurt somebody with a gun. go home and do that with your friends, school isn't about that. There are plenty of other ways to get through a school day besides pretending to shoot one another.

    A pop tart gun isn't a stepping stone to anything except maybe their friend making their own pop tart gun.

    During recess playing cops and robbers? Or showing off one of their toys? Its ridiculous that ANYONE would think that is reasonable.

    Sorry, its not the schools' job to condition kids to be anti-gun. Thats something that kids should develop from their parents and life experiences.

    Like being boring. They're boys and they might just enjoy playing with toy guns or make things that look like guns. It's not a big deal and I assure you it does not lead to anything.

    Why is there a need for that in a learning environment though? There is none.

    They're eating pop tarts. It's not exactly a time when they're learning something.

    I just don't understand why there can't be a better use of time. Guns are made for killing, simple as that, killing isn't for school.
