“Academics” are often the most narrow-minded, stupidly bureaucratic, and reactionary people I meet.

Oh no, more counseling for this distraught student. He should have brought a paper missile launcher and get expelled from this libtard school.

I just read this on foxnews and it demonstrates yet again school officials are completely out of control.

I hope those kids don’t watch that Woody Allen movie “Take the money and run” because Allen says “Gub” in it which no doubt would immediately get those kids suspended.

His sentence will be enhanced because he drew the gun using a crayon box with more than 7 crayons.

At some point, parents have to be blamed for not demanding a halt to this insanity. School administrators who have zero common sense or judgment do not belong in their jobs.

Children pointing their fingers at each other and going ‘bang!’, pencil drawings of guns, inch long toy guns, etc. are only threatening to people who are mentally ill, who should have no say in how schools are run.

Much of this nonsense came into being with radical controlled school boards, which is a problem because such boards really do very little, so focus on minutiae, and the school districts would be better served it they were non-political appointees instead of elected wackos.

Fake Gun?

It is a square piece of paper with one corner ripped out so it looks like a fat letter “L”.

We have teachers so brainwashed that they can’t make a mature evaluation of the relative danger of a piece of paper. They may be adults “educated” in colleges but they don’t have the native intelligence and common sense of a normal 10 year old child who hasn’t been brainwashed in government schools.

Not only that - not content to be idiots themselves they are destroying the minds of another generation.
The have the kids they teach so brainwashed that they see a gun when they look at a tree limb, a piece of paper or two fingers at right angles.
These kids will not be able to function in the real world any better than the brainwashed idiots teaching them.

Whoa! I'm guessing that no framing carpenters are allowed on school property nor within a thousand yards.

That's the small conceable one, but you got your high capacity 36 inchers and more.

Anybody check the wood shop yet?

Can't these bozos with all their advanced degrees from fancy ed schools get it through their heads that what these children are doing is called playing? Don't they know that playing is what all children naturally do?

School boards are voted in, they can be voted out. Parents of these kids need to run for office. Pressure needs to be put on the school board, the superintendent and principal to stop this stupidity nor send them to the unemployment line. For some reason, parents have forgotten they run the schools, not the school officials and certainly not the teacher unions.

Maybe I’m thinking too much but here is what I’m thinking. The kids had homosexuality pushed on them as something normal, something to be embraced and now more kids view homosexuality as somewhat normal.

Today the kids are told guns are bad. Also, drawing guns, using your finger as guns, sticks, paper, whatever in the shape of guns gets kids into trouble.

Are the kids today getting groomed so it will be easier to disarm the country in a few years?

Yeah. I'm waiting for Fahrenheit 451. There should be no paper or books in the schools. Paper kills!

lol! I always wondered if he wrote that scene by accident because if you’ll notice the letter B is right next to N on the keyboard. So he was probably typing out a bank robbery scene and when he read it back it said Gub which gave him the idea.

“pencil drawings of guns, inch long toy guns, etc. are only threatening to people who are mentally ill,”

I could not have said it better. This is a great way to after them. Question their sanity!

That could very well be the method behind the madness.

Wow. Just remembering how I used to bring “real” guns to school in 4th grade for show and tell and the teachers were as excited as the kids looking at them and passing them around.

Good think it wasn’t a paper nuclear suitcase bomb. That can do much more damage.

Very end of the video the mother says, "I don't want my child in that school".

I, too, don't want your child in that school. Please, move out of Philly, ASAP.

In a rational world, all the parents would “arm” their kids with paper guns the next day. Someone has to put a stop to this nonsense.
