MESA, Arizona Officials at an Arizona school suspended a 13-year-old boy for sketching what looked like a gun, saying the action posed a threat to his classmates.
The boy's parents said the drawing was a harmless doodle and school officials overreacted.

If the classmates imagine it real does it become real and shoot them?
Official incompetence and malice induced by a faddish social hysteria of the current educational and prosecutorial cohort.
Maybe the district should provide the kids with the BULLETPROOF BACKPACK in case that picture does become real.
“Mind boggling stupidity!
By the headline writer? Don’t they read what they write? What is the usual meaning of ‘drawing a gun’?
He should not have been suspended for drawing a gun.
(Perhaps for drawing badly, however.)
Just have all the other kids draw a picture of a bullet proof vest!
LOL - That might actually work here in Connecticut.
I was sent to the principles office in 3rd grade for drawing a topless girl in a hula shirt.
The principle threaten to call the authorites in Hawaii. (true story)
Looks more like a picture of the Clinton library.
Tell me about it. The state of weapon art has certainly deteriorated since I was 13! I could draw an almost photorealistic Winchester lever action (and ofted did).
I read the school administrators said this boy was a "danger to others" which led me to believe he had lots of drawings of cartridges and that the "other students" were drawn on paper as well.
When I was in high school I took a shotgun to school to refinish the stock no one said a thing. It is sad the state of affairs that we have to face now. No one even imagined back then a student would would come to school and kill other students be cause they felt bullied.I’m a teacher now and can tell you that the thoughts some kids have and express are scary. But what these administrators did in this case are simply an over reaction.
“You have to believe for that stuff to work on me!”

Wait, that was just a movie, yep, these school officials are idiots.
Well, I supposed I can see how drawing a gun from a CCW rig could disrupt classes.... Huh? He didn't "draw" a gun from a holster? He drew a PICTURE of a gun?
And liberals, when they actually look around and think for a second or two, wonder why boys aren't doing as well in school as they used to. Ah, this could be a symptom of why boys don't do well in today's feminized, liberal, pc, socialist, government schools of edukashun.
He sketched the gun.
He didn't draw (unholster) it.
Hey, you actually said that liberals thought! What the heck are you thinking. They only ‘feel’ or at least that’s the only part that matters.
I said ‘think for a second or two’. I know that’s the limit for liberal, before they get back to their feelings of superiority, because they care more the rest of us.
