Arizona, 2007: A child is suspended for drawing images of a gun:
MESA, Ariz. Parents of a Florence student suspended for sketching a gun during class say his punishment is an overreaction by school officials.
The eighth-grader at Florence's Walker Butte K-8 school was suspended for three days on Aug. 24 for drawing images of a gun.
Stephanie Vardarkis said her son, Joshua, had drawn the images on index cards, sort of like a cartoon that included a stick figure holding a gun.
In one image, the boy included the name of the school resource officer. Rather than it being a threat, Vardarkis said the character was meant to be calling the officer for backup.
New Jersey, 2007: A child is suspended for drawing a picture of a gun:
A second-grader's drawing of a stick figure shooting a gun earned him a one-day school suspension.
Kyle Walker, 7, was suspended last week for violating Dennis Township Primary School's zero-tolerance policy on guns, the boy's mother, Shirley McDevitt, told The Press of Atlantic City.
Kyle gave the picture to another child on the school bus, and that child's parents complained about it to school officials, McDevitt said. Her son told her the drawing was of a water gun, she said.
A photocopy of the picture provided by McDevitt showed two stick figures with one pointing a crude-looking gun at the other, the newspaper said. What appeared to be the word "me" was written above the shooter, with another name scribbled above the other figure.
School officials declined to comment Friday. A message left at the superintendent's office Saturday was not returned.
Mount Carmel, PA: Child suspended for terrorist act- threatening to shoot classmate with bubble gun:
A 5-year-old girl was suspended from school earlier this week after she made what the school called a terrorist threat.
Her weapon of choice? A small, Hello Kitty automatic bubble blower.
The kindergartner, who attends Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Pennsylvania, caught administrators attention after suggesting she and a classmate should shoot each other with bubbles.
I think people know how harmless a bubble is. It doesnt hurt, said Robin Ficker, an attorney for the girls family. According to Ficker, the girl, whose identity has not been released, didnt even have the bubble gun toy with her at school.

Seriously. Child abuse is giving your kids to these morons for 12 years.
Get your kids out of public schools. We may be able someday to reform these institutions of imbecility into something resembling sanity but your kids will be grown long before then. They only have now.
I guess nobody told these morons that Jimmy's plane got shot at by the Jamaican authorities, mistaking him for a drug runner. I suspect he knows what handling weapons is all about.
I just don't want to live on this planet any more.
Well, Buh-rock is doing it to further his agenda. I have no idea why Jimmy Buffett would be doing it.
I love Jimmy’s music, seriously amazing storyteller. I hate his politics. Twenty-five years ago I started going to his concerts before he was a big star. Now I refuse to give him my money. I just listen to my old CD’s over and over. :)
