This is the lesson our children are being taught. Guns are scary, dangerous and should be shunned and vilified no matter the circumstance. This apparently is the mark of an enlightened society.
The sad part is that this lesson is not only being taught to our children but has been promoted for years, so the children’s parents believe the same nonsense.
Evidence the recent incident in Palmer Massachusetts. A six-year-old boy brought a Lego gun, no larger than a quarter onto a public school bus. Yes, a kindergartner.
The report I read said that he was “brandishing” it. Say hello to my really little friend, I guess.
It was reported the bus driver said that he (the six-year-old) caused quite a disturbance and the children were traumatized. Traumatized?! Are you kidding me?!
Now, I’m right next door to Massachusetts so I understand the liberal wackiness of the state, but this is surreal.
The report continued by describing the “aftermath” of the incident. Again, really? Aftermath? The school forced (maybe at gunpoint? kidding) the little kid to write a letter of apology to the bus driver. The school then sent a letter home to all the uptight liberal parents of the “traumatized” children explaining there was no real gun on board.
The kid’s mom said her son knows that firearms are dangerous and have no place in school. Especially when a mass murderer comes calling and there’s no way to defend yourself or the children (my words, not hers). And let me add… Firearm? It could have gotten lost in his pocket!
Now we learn of yet another “zero tolerance”, zero intelligence policy violation. This time in equally liberal Maryland.
A five-year-old boy brought a “cowboy style Gun” fully loaded (with caps) to school. I was unable to discover what the guns clip size was. Maybe Bloomberg should hightail it to Maryland and find out.
Anyway, the poor little kid (did I mention he is five!) was actually interrogated for two hours. The adults upset him so much he wet himself. Still no report of whether he was water boarded.
The child’s mother said she had no problem with some consequence of his (her son) behavior. She didn’t appreciate the severity and had to get the family attorney involved. For a Cap Gun!
Oh, by the way, he was suspended for 10 days, basically the balance of the school year. It is reported that the family was afraid the incident would become part of the kid’s permanent record.
That’s what they’re afraid of? Not that the schools storm troopers traumatized the kid?
These two incidents are just a couple of many like them and are just further proof of what we conspiracy theorists on the right have been warning of.
These statists get our children at increasingly young age, now starting at the prekindergarten level, and drag them off to propaganda camps dressed up as schools.
Once there, they are free to indoctrinate these little impressionable minds in the ways of statist rule.
Rule number one: Speak, act and do as your government overlords tell you, for you are being watched and tracked (thanks to Common Core).
Rule number two: Step out of line – get slapped down and reeducated.
Rule number three: All guns are scary and should be owned or used by no one, except the ruling class and Hollywood.
For everything else – see rule number one.
I just hope these would be felons learned their lesson.
