    SO you agree with the indoctrination centers AKA schools? so you think that school having a policy as stupid as this is ok?
    Question where did these kids get their gun info from? I am 99% sure it is from the BOOB tube. we need to stop the gun violence on TV FIRST.
    Drug usage also needs to be removed.

    Are you serious here? I mean how old was the kid? 6? I'm sure his arsenal of water pistols, or GO JOES isn't a huge threat...

    I bet those rights are not their constitutional rights correct? Nice teaching them wrongly most likely never came into your thinking at all huh?
    if you love your children and want them to be brought up correctly home school them.

    Dont be ridiculous! A kid using his finger as an imaginary gun is play, not a threat. You of all people should know that.

    Do people even read what I write? Where did I say it was okay? When I told the parents to get off their fat lazy ass and go do something about it instead of not doing **** about it until their kid gets suspended. If you get warnings your kid is doing something against policy don't complain when he gets suspended for doing it when you did not do anything to fight the policy. Guns has zero to do with this and is everything about parental involvement to fight against policies like this.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
