Florida Gov. Signs ‘Pop-Tart’ Gun Bill Into Law, Prohibits Discipline for Playing with Pretend Guns

Common sense wins in Florida for a change:

Not a real gun.

Not a real gun.

Lawmakers approved the so-called “Pop-Tart” bill after an 8-year-old Maryland boy earned a suspension for biting a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun last year.

The boy later received a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association, which supported the legislation.

State Sen. Greg Evers (R), who sponsored the legislation, said it would prevent situations “where you chew a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun and you are expelled” from school, according to the Herald.

Asked if any similar incidents had occurred in Florida, Evers cited a student who was expelled in his district.

Zero tolerance policies do nothing but give bureaucrats an excuse to put their brains in neutral and blame the rules for their refusal exercise discretion.

This is good legislation, but sad that we need it.
