Anti-Gun Educrats Gone Wild

An essential item on liberals’ agenda is to condition the next generation to regard firearms in the hands of private citizens with hysterical horror. Consequently, the insanity (e.g., see here and here and here and here and here and here and here) continues.

In Florence, Arizona:

Daniel McClaine Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School, said he saved the picture as his desktop background on his school-issued computer.

A teacher noticed it and turned him in.

The picture shows an AK-47 on top of a flag.

McClaine said the school initially suspended him for three days Friday.

Since the laptop belongs to the school, the district policy states students are prohibited from “sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures,” and cannot access, send, create or forward pictures that are considered “harassing, threatening, or illegal.” …

McClaine said the gun is not his. He’s interested in joining the military and said he found it on the internet.

It’s nice to see teachers are instilling respect for the First as well as the Second Amendment.

In Loveland, Colorado (as mentioned earlier):

A 2nd grader has been suspended from school in Loveland for a make believe game he was playing.

The 7-year-old says he was trying to save the world. … He was playing a game during recess at Loveland’s Mary Blair Elementary School and threw an imaginary grenade into a box with pretend evil forces inside.

“I pretended the box, there’s something shaking in it, and I go ‘pshhh.’”

The boy didn’t throw anything real or make any threats against anyone. He explains he was pretending to be the hero. “So nothing can get out and destroy the world.”

But his imaginary play broke the school’s real rules. The school lists “absolutes” designed to keep a safe environment. The list includes absolutely no fighting, real or imaginary; no weapons, real or imaginary.

Alex will be rescuing the world at home until the kerfuffle is “worked out.” If only imaginary grenades could rescue it from absolutist moonbats.

In Alexandria, Virginia:

A 10-year-old Alexandria boy was arrested after police said he brought a toy handgun to school on Tuesday, a day after he showed it to others on a school bus.

The boy, a fifth-grader at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said.

He was also suspended from school, and Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Morton Sherman said further action is being considered, including expulsion.

The kid did not even point the toy at anyone or threaten to open fire with it. Its orange tip should have clued in even the most obtuse apparatchik that it was not real.

The lunatic authorities actually transported him to a juvenile detention center after the toy was discovered in his backpack.

The irony of this occurring at a school named after a general who directed American soldiers in combat against authoritarians was no doubt lost on the idiots responsible for traumatizing the child.
