Another reason to home school
A 6-year-old kindergarten student in Massachusetts is accused of causing a “disturbance” and “traumatizing” other students by bringing a very tiny plastic toy gun on the school bus last week.
Bang bang, you're dead ! Brain dead that is...

Another reason to home school
-I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you screw with me, I'll kill you all.
-Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.
Marine General James Mattis,
Next they will attempt to charge his parents or legal guardians with Aiding and Abetting.
next you can just write "NUKE" on a piece of paper and be charged with a crime ...
Actually, the school district rescinded that suspension once the incident was investigated.
Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.
"Though defensive violence will always be a 'sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." -Saint Augustine

The boy was scheduled to serve detention on Tuesday and write a letter of apology to the bus driver
"I'm sorry Mr. Bus Driver that you are very stupid ... were you hit in the head by you brother when you were young? My brother did that to me too. Brothers can be mean. Sorry.
A five-year-old Maryland boy was interrogated until he wet himself and suspended for 10 days after school officials caught with playing with a “cowboy-style cap gun,” the Washington Post reports, citing the child’s family and lawyer.
School officials interrogated the boy for two whole hours until he “uncharacteristically” wet his pants, the boy’s mother said....
The mother said the principal told her that if the cap gun had been loaded with caps, it would have been deemed an explosive and police would have been called in.
I'm sure he'll forget all about this ....

I view a public school principal or teacher as a government employee and cannot interrogate a child without Miranda plus waiver of those rights.
It's a broad view but I view that any government employee should be bound by all constitutional limitations against the government.
I tell my kids not to answer any questions from anyone.
I was listening to a talk radio show yesterday morning where the subject was about a 5 year old who brought his toy cap revolver that he got at some amusement park to kindergarten to show his friends. He was removed from class, interrogated for two hours by a police officer and wet his pants, then given a 10 day suspension. This was in Calvert County, MD. A caller related a similar story where his young son was riding to school on a school bus, just before last Christmas. He was talking to a friend about what happened at Sandy Hook and said he wished someone had had a gun to stop the bad guy. The driver heard this conversation, told school officials and the little boy was taken directly to the office and detained. A sheriff's deputy arrived and soon the father showed up. The sheriff asked a battery of questions and then said he wanted to inspect the father's home for guns. The father called his wife to alert her to the fact that the police were going to show up.
The man actually let the police into his home to check things and then the sheriff deputy sat with the father at the kitchen table asking a bunch of questions to the point of the father requesting he leave. The deputy didn't like that too much but left.
Yes, the man should not have allowed the deputy into his home in the first place, should not have answered questions, and should have stood his ground against this horrendous behavior. He knew better but since he was military (not sure if former or active), he "followed orders".
This sort of thing in public schools is totally out of control. The nuts began running the institutions years ago and have gotten so extreme, it is almost comical. A SNL skit couldn't be this ridiculous. Pediatricians and family doctors asking if there are guns in the house. Children being asked if their parents have guns. CPS believing they are above the law and demanding to inspect homes for guns. All of this is beyond nonsense.... it is crazy. But it's far worse than crazy... it's a deliberate and a sinister plan to turn firearms into tobacco. Make them to be viewed as socially unacceptable along with their owners. Turn us into social pariah, misfits.... miscreants not worthy of being members of a civilized society.
The foxes moved into the hen house years ago and this is one of the results of their habitation. The sleeping giant is getting smaller by the day. Socialism is on the march and before long, there won't be enough of us to stop it.
In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
Si vis pacem, para bellum.
Good one!Bang bang, you're dead ! Brain dead that is...
These zero-tolerance policies. The principal should be squirted with a water gun. Since imagination=real for them, that might be deadly though, better not.
BTW, for anyone that didn't click on the actual news story: this gun was really tiny.
I think about these things in the context of my own daughter. My first reaction is to protect her from it - but I also realize that these events are instructive, and not in the way the agents of the state are trying to be.
Without the blatant and pervasive disregard for her civil rights that would be characteristic of a public school education, will she learn what the state is really all about?
