Responses to Thuggish Anti-Gun Brainwashing in Public Schools

Government schools are so useless at educating that 80% of high school grads in NYC aren’t fit to enter college. But they are highly suited for brainwashing impressionable children to regard firearms with horror. It’s hard to imagine that a campaign taken to these extremes won’t have an effect:

In Maryland, 7-year-old Josh Welch took bites from a pastry (something akin to a Pop Tart) in such a way that it resembled the shape of a gun. He was suspended for two days.

In a suburb of Los Angeles, the 15-year-old son of Hollywood actor Joseph C. Phillips was threatened by a teacher with police action, and the boy’s mental stability was questioned in front of other students. Why? The young man had a photograph of a bb gun on a digital camera.

In Florida a high school football player brought a gun onto a bus and verbalized the intent to kill a fellow player. Another student stopped him. The Good Samaritan was suspended from school for being involved in a gun-related incident.

A mom in Caro, Michigan adorned cupcakes with toy soldiers for her son’s 9th birthday. The toy soldiers resembled America’s armed forces of World War II. The school confiscated the toy soldiers, insisting all the while that no disrespect of U.S. service members was intended.

A kindergartener in Mt. Carmel, Pennsylvania was suspended for two days and made to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after she used a pink “Miss Kitty” bubble dispenser that resembled a handgun.

Perhaps the most heart-breaking in this array of histrionics comes from South Philadelphia. Fifth grade student Melody Valentin had in her pocket a piece of paper folded into a shape that vaguely resembled a gun. As she went to throw it away, a school official yelled at her, threatened her with police action, and searched her in front other students. She claims other students called her a “murderer.”

Given all the rhetoric coming out of left-wing educrats regarding “bullying,” this is a thoughtful suggestion:

Can the above-referenced behavior by school officials be called anything less than bullying? Perhaps schools should spend more time teaching and less time engaged in the kind of thuggery, hysteria and hate mongering that 7th grade bullies might use.

Fortunately not everyone in the government–education–media axis of evil is completely on board with the anti-gun agenda. The astonishing story of a 7-year-old boy suspended because his Pop-Tart reminded the teacher of a gun after he had taken a few bites out of it appears to have inspired a true rarity — sensible legislation:

State Sen. J. B. Jennings (R-Baltimore, Hartford counties) … introduced legislation titled “The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013.”

The measure would prevent principals from suspending or expelling students who make “a hand shape or gesture resembling a gun” or bring to school “any other object that resembles a gun but serves another purpose.”

That a law like this is necessary confirms that no child should be subjected to the nightmare realm of moonbat indoctrination liberals have made of government schools.

Another excellent proposal.

    I wonder… how many days suspension and how much ‘psychiatric evaluating’ will the penalty be for calling Obama “a worthless communist idiot” on school grounds?

  5. Skyfall says:

    The momentum is with them right now. Every day, more and more, you’re going to see them clamping down, putting the screws on, using their public bullying to stamp out any thinking that isn’t “progressive”. You MUST be anti-gun, anti-Jesus, anti-Capitalist, pro-homo, pro-abortion, pro-union, pro-Obama OR ELSE.

    They are the enemy, and they’re in full flower right now.

    They mean you harm.

    I remember watching “Peter and the Wolf” many times in school. I guess they can’t show that anymore. And you better not pick up that pine cone – it looks like a hand grenade. Or that branch – it looks like a rifle. And while you are at it, you better not point your finger. Even just making a fist could be threatening – people hit other people with fists, and it looks like a hand grenade too! I always thought dirt clods made the best hand grenades – they would “explode” when they hit the ground.

    I don’t know how I didn’t grow up to be a mass murderer. <_<

    WrightWing: That’s why you take at least an audio recording whenever you’re interacting like that. Heck, I have one with enough memory to last a week of any time I’m out of the house. She obviously didn’t have time to edit it, and it would prove what she said and didn’t say.

    “Abject stupidity and lack of common sense needs to be made a capital offense.”

    True that! Unfortunately, large sodas, guns, cigarettes, and words are headed to be capital offenses.

  15. DJ says:

    Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), a member of the Democratic Party’s [nation wreaking] leadership in the House of Representatives, suggested to Jason Mattera at a Feb. 13 women’s rights rally that plans for an assault weapons ban and private-sales background checks were only the beginning of a broader gun control agenda extending to handguns as well.

  16. Son of Taz says:

    Outlaw the teacher’s unions. They are nothing more than extreme leftists, or more correctly, enablers of communism.

    If we can’t outlaw them, which I think we could since they became legal under John F. Kennedy, then every state must enact right-to-work laws. As with Wisconsin, employees will vote with their feet, rejecting the unions.

  17. soft weak cowards says:

    Ahhh! The poptarts are coming! No tart is safe. Report tart criminals to the ministry of truth comrade and your vodka rations will be increased.

  18. Alan says:

    Sorry, we don’t need another law, although parents suing the school(s) for, say, violating free-expression rights may be appropriate.

    This generation’s zero-tolerance policies grew out of previous generation’s cases of misbehaving kids getting off with wrist-slaps because they were teacher’s pet, star athletes, or had politically-connected parents. The pendulum has swung the other way, and will eventually stabilize.

  23. GoinSane says:

    I have almost no respect for teachers anymore. Any teacher that I could respect would have resigned over this crap years ago, except for those few who are trying to fight the system from within.
