In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in a school setting, a kindergarten boy has been suspended from school for 10 days because he showed a friend his cowboy-style cap gun on the way to school.

Shouldn’t kids have a Constitutional right to own a cap gun?
In my day, if a teacher caught me with a cap gun (or any other contraband), she would take it, place it insider her desk, and give it back at the end of the day. The worst that would happen was maybe missing out on recess.
When are people going to abandon the public schools en masse and either homeschool or private school their kids.
As for being a weapon, a cap gun is a club.
It can’t actually launch a projectile.
Whe idiot scaring the kid into wetting his pants needs to be enhanced interrogated until he to pees his pants.
Don’t you remember your civics classes? I seem to remember that the right to keep and bear arms only applies to those over 18. Cap guns included. My parents should have been jailed for all the toy guns I had. I mean look how I turned out. LOL!
wish it was my child...I’d beat the s%#$ outta that adult
As long as government approved indoctrinators applied the questioning it’s all okay. “They” can do no wrong. Besides, it was for the kids. That’ll teach the little brat to “love” guns. On the other hand, he may get a lifetime membership to the NRA.

Dennis Praeger said this morning that if the “weapon” had been “loaded,” ie caps ready to be set off, then it would have been considered an explosive device and the cops would have been called.
So school officials are too dumb to handle a "loaded" cap gun.
What if they were presented with a real firearm in the school that was just doped by a would be shooter. I bet they would call the cops and hope he doesn't grab it and start shooting. The smart thing would be to take it and neutralize the threat or at least make it safe depending on the situation. I bet they don't know how to do either.
If this had happened to my child I would have slapped that biatch principal up side the head and taken my chances with a jury. This is just so stupid.
See my #12.
The liberal teacher pressed her and said "If someone broke into your house would you shoot them in the head and feel good about it."
Her answer: No sir, because my Dad would be very angry at me because, you always aim for "center mass" and Double Tap.
Needless to say the liberal teacher was not amused, but I was very proud!
Does anyone else find this totally hilarious?
Future employer: Well you had a 4.0 grade point but there is that Kindergarten cap gun incident.
Maybe its because I'm retiring from very good job and I look back on my childhood pranks and think this wouldn't even make my top 1000.
This is local news for me. It was very embarrassing to listen to the report on radio.
Can you imagine what would have happened if a prisoner at Gitmo were interrogated till he peed his pants?
“When are people going to abandon the public schools en masse and either homeschool or private school their kids.”
If you’re going to live the lifestyle we’ve decided we need; McMansion, two BMW 3 Series, dinner out 3 time a week, golf, tennis...etc. we can’t either home school or abandon the government babysitting service called schools. Also, most people, probably 90%, are not qualified to home school a dog. Private school is out of reach of that 90% also. Interestingly, an astonishing number of public school teachers and professionals send their kids to private school.
My little boy (5 yrs) just finished pre-school yesterday...in his stuff was a Thank you card and some gifts from a parent who was here on a work visa from Japan. They have a beautiful, smart, and caring little girl that helped my son and has been a good friend over the last 2 yrs...my son has CP and is also very handsome, smart, and caring...one of the items in his bag was a water pistol - something that I and probably everyone else on this forum has had growing up - especially the last day of school - something to bring in and shoot everyone with water to celebrate another school year ending - all in good fun - and all those with common sense - can appreciate that.
What struck me was that, here is a mom, from Japan, exposing her child to out culture and sense of fun, that is going back to Japan in a few months because her husband’s position was for only 5 yrs here - but knew that it was a toy and not to be regarded as an insult or to show any type of irresponsibility...and the kids love stuff like that - because as a responsible parent - they are taught right from wrong in our house to both our kids...because every time this stupid left wing socialists crap comes up - we point it out so they know how to spot idiots as they grow up — and the examples are really getting too many to keep up with!
I have a different view on this. I would like to see more of this exposed. I do not wish more children to be subjected to this type of treatment. I think it is outrageous.
But, the more the socialists let their mask slip, the easier a case is made for school choice. You will not win an argument with socialists, they must be defeated.
The more egregious their actions, the greater impetus for change.
That would be scary if the kid brought an arsenal of explosives, such as potassium perchlorate, sulfur and antimony sulfide or of red phosphorus and potassium chlorate. I think this principal would have wet her pants instead of doing that to a little kid.
A nations where wimps, homosexualists and islamists are in charge.
My sympathy to you having to live in The Peoples’ Republic of Maryland. That principal should be tarred, feathered, and dumped in Southeast DC.
This action is so vile. If my child were questioned like this, the people who did the questioning would be seeing me in court.
There is no authority to do this.
As the parent, the child would never go back.........
Part of the solution is teaching children not to take this crap.
Even at that age, I was confrontational especially when I felt that the adults were treating me unfairly. Just teach your kids to just stop this childishness and tell the adults just punish him already, if that’s what they want to do, and “quit yapping, and I reserve all my legal rights.”
Then the real adults have to hold these people legally accountable.
I’m not a litigious guy, but the only thing these guys will understand is legal expenses, judgments, bankruptcy, etc.
Allow the parents to interrogate the principal for hours on end, until the same outcome is reached
this makes me so angry
“The worst that would happen was maybe missing out on recess.”
Deprived of my trusty Fanner-50 and greenie stickum caps I was defenseless when I participated in the daily schoolyard episode of Bonanza, Wyatt Earp, The Lone Ranger etc..
That is exactly what I taught my daughter when she was in public school. Clam up and tell them to call me....immediately. Let momma take care of it.....and boy did I a few times. A couple of them came close to wetting their pants.
absolutely- these creeps claim mostl ikely that the ‘gun traumatized kids’ with no proof that ANY kid was ‘traumatized’ by viewing hte cap gun- yet The creeps that enterogated the poor child actually DID TRAUMATIZE thsi child until he peed his pants? I truly hope his parents Sue hte crap out of that school!- Bankrupt it- I mean why not? They are morally bankrupt not to mention devoid ofcommon sense-
We NEED a judge to state ocne and for all that a cap gun, a toy gun, a lego gun, a bubble gun- ANY ‘gun’ that is NOT capable of shooting DEADLY projectiles is NOT a weapon- PERIOD! This zero tolorance crap is gettign way way otu of hand- They are truning kis into sissies- determinign what hte kids are ‘traumatized’ by and what they aren’t- then trurnign around and traumatizing the poor kids that just thought their toys were coll and wanted to shjare them with the other kids— Let kids be kids for cryign otuj loud-
School chemistry classes in my day could be characterized as explosives. A teacher one day blew a panel out of the ceiling in a demonstration to our class.
Also reminds me how one kid in our class used some magnesium ribbon or something from the chem lab, stuck it in the classroom door, lit it and melted the keylock inside so we couldn’t get in class after lunch.
I’d be merciless. Sue them into bankruptcy. Devour their life savings with legal expenses. Don’t back off. I’d sue the school and the people individually.
Then again, I went to law school, so fighting these guys into poverty has special appeal to me.
For adults, I have always had similar legal advice if they are being bothered, leaned on, or otherwise harassed by law enforcement: offer your wrists for the cuffs and just say if you want to arrest me, do it. Otherwise, I’m leaving. Then don’t say a word.
Meanwhile, government welcomes into the U.S. tens of thousands of Muslims, millions more entering illegally, while government provides these foreigners, immigrants and illegals, like the Boston bomb terrorist, hundreds of thousands worth of tax paid benefits..
But go after the little kids with the toy guns....
They are out of control. Now traumatizing children so they won’t grow up to tolerate guns and someday we’ll have a gun-free paradise. They are so divorced from reality it is frightening. Not to mention unaware of their own sadism.
government schools doing this ridiculous bs
government IRS oppressing conservatives to rig an election
when will people realize government is the enemy and the problem as the democrat party is the enemy and the problem we have
Right before the fascists in Washington make attendance at a government sponsored indoctrination center compulsory.
Could be the trigger for CWII.
“It cant actually launch a projectile.”
When I was a kid, we had these great cap guns that looked just like old Colt revolvers. There were “bullets” You had to open the cylinder, take out the “cartridge,” Pull out the “bullet,” and stick a round cap on them, and reassemble. You got 6 shots! Not a whole roll.
Well, the “bullets” had a hole in them, and I discovered that a BB fit into the hole perfectly! Instead of using one sticky cap, I’d use ten! It would fire the BB about a dozen feet, but with virtually no force behind it.
Those cap guns were cool because you had to optimize your shots, or you were shot, and ended up “dead” until the count of 50.
Careful now. You don’t want to end up on “the list” do ya? LOL! Probably on there with me already.
I saw “Maryland” in the first paragraph and didn’t bother to read any more. Whoever did this needs his butt kicked, bad, and his boss, and his boss right up to the Governor. BTT
The parents should hire a nasty faced lawyer and file a civil suit.
Five minutes after retrieving kid-o...
Hey Jennifer, come here any you can play with my gun. Don’t know if the hair trigger is ok tho. Whatever, but please play with my gun carefully. Don’t want it going off too soon or in the wrong place.
We are already on ‘the list’, and they can eat a bag of dicks. Toy guns indeed, what a bunch of limp-wristed pantywaste libtards. They just terrorized a child over a frickin’ TOY. Shameful and UN-American.
CAIR would have a press conference. Keith Ellison would cry in front of Congress.
I grew up in the 60s and 70s and cap guns were my favorite toy. We use to buy the rolls of caps and hit them with a hammer for a louder bang. Today we would have been arrested for terrorism and my parents put under IRS surveillance.
Same here. What we're seeing with this kindergartener is anti-2A indoctrination imo.
Government school is child abuse.
