    You're right. Let's expel the kid because the school is a "gun-free zone".

    I didn't say expel the kid. I would suggest you actually read my post. But then I know you don't do that.

    Pretending to shoot another student in the head is pretty sadistic behaviour in and of itself, especially since the kid knew the rules.


    The kid showed he has no respect for guns, gun safety, other students or school authority. Imo, a three day suspension is a good and well deserved penalty.

    What must be stopped and considered a criminal act of terrorism is if a teacher points at a child. Death threats like that should not be tolerated and treated as harshly as possible.

    Most rational people can make the distinction.

    Thank you for your compliance, comrade.

    There are very few things in life that are certain. But the one thing we certainly can rely on is 10 year olds being rational.
