The hysterical hoplophobia goes on and on:
A Philadelphia fifth grader was admonished by school officials and called “murderer” by classmates for bringing a piece of paper that looked like a gun to school.
Melody Valentin was searched by a school official in front of Newlin Fell Elementary School classmates last week, she told Fox 29 in Philadelphia.
“He yelled at me and said I shouldn’t have brought the gun to school and I kept telling him it was a paper gun but he wouldn’t listen,” Melody said.
The “gun” looked something like this:
Taking yet another page out of 1984, liberal authorities have recruited children to participate in their anti-gun witch hunt.
Melody didn’t realize the piece of paper was still on her person when she took it out of her pocket. A classmate saw the “gun” and reported it to the school official.
“I’m waking up at 3 o’clock in the morning, and my daughter is in the bathroom, crying,” [Melody’s mother] Dianna Kelly said. “She said ‘I’m having nightmares. I’m having dreams that he’s chasing me down the street.'”
At least Melody managed to learn something in a government school: a healthy fear of our irrational moonbat ruling class.
