    The kid was probably taught gun safety by the NRA. Would you let that kid handle a real gun?
    Oh, for God's sake!

    Do they also get the mandatory 15 years for using a gun???

    A defining characteristic of sanity is an understanding of the distinction between what is real, and what is pretend. Along with that comes an understanding that what is real is to be treated differently than what is pretended.

    One certainly has to doubt the mental health of someone who fails to grasp this distinction.

    LOL if Moot were the judge probably so
    and if his hand had five or more fingers-it would be a high capacity specification as well!!!

    Men and women are different, and boys and girls are different. This difference is essential to the way the sexes relate to one another, form marriages and families, and generally work together to build society.

    It's long been a characteristic of the far-wrong to try to deny and minimize these differences. The pussification of boys and men is one example. Radical feminism is another. The embracing of homosexuality, and the effort to raise that particular perversion to being treated as equal to normal, healthy heterosexual relationships is yet another.

    "...Price "has been warning the students for some weeks," said Warner. "We've had a problem at this school. The boys have gone around fake shooting and making paper guns at class. It's inappropriate. She has sent notes to parents for the past three weeks alerting them of the problem."
    Entingh said he never received a notice, but was aware of school authorities telling students, including Nathan, that any gun-related behavior would have serious consequences.....<snip>...
    "Ohio Department of Education statistics show Nathan isn't alone.
    According to state disciplinary figures for the 2012-2013 school year, a total of 419 statewide students, from various grade levels, were suspended because of an incident in the category of "firearm look-a-likes," and an additional 38 students were expelled.
    In the Columbus City Schools district, where Nathan goes to school, 12 students were expelled because of incidents in the "firearm look-a-likes" category, while 69 students were suspended. ....read.."

    12 students expelled - so their academic futures destroyed - and 419 suspended as punishment for children failing to yield to a political propaganda campaign.
    The Columbus school district 12 students expelled and 69 suspended.
    Parents do need to instruct their children there: "The teachers are your enemy. They want to hurt you."

    Pointing fingers is not what they want boys doing anymore. The cowboys and indians mentality is obsolete, and they're trying to instill a new metrosexual image of boyhood.
