11-Yr-Old Suspended From School For Merely TALKING About Guns (Calvert County, Md)
WMAL ^ | JUNE 03, 2013 | WMAL

Posted on 06/04/2013 9:09:52 PM PDT by SWAMPSNIPER

"The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff's deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. "He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he's going to have to search my house. Search my house? I just wanted to know what happened."

I am starting to wonder if this ship can be righted without a fight. I hope and pray it can.

If I was in school today, I’d be in so much trouble. I drew numerous M-16’s and M1 Garands and so on.

Vaeh, my five year old, just received her first 22...a Keystone Bolt Action 22 LR Chipmonk kid-size. I have been telling her over and over and over NOT to even mention it to any of her friends. Period. I hope she listens.

I think the point is to demonize gun ownership with the younger generation. So that when they are adults they will choose not to be gun owners. “Confiscation” will take many forms...

He seems to have said he wished he had a gun to defend the school! And for that the Spanish Inquisition falls upon him and his family!

And we wonder why we have so many jerks and so few heroes today.

Principal Darrel Prioleau did not respond to calls and emails seeking comment. Robin Welsh, the deputy superintendent of Calvert County Schools, said federal privacy rules prohibited her from commenting on a specific case, but she said students are not suspended without cause.

And yet that's exactly what this liberal brown shirt did!

“I think the point is to demonize gun ownership with the younger generation.”

I absolutely think you are right. The good news is that young adults tend to rebel against authority...and it most likely will become trendy to have tons of guns (like it is today to have tons of tattoos).

If I was in school today, I’d be in so much trouble.

I recall that a friend of mine and I in sixth grade used to conduct interplanetary wars during lunch hour with pencils and rulers on manila paper. We each drew our own picture, but would spar verbally about who had the upper hand in the depicted battle. To be honest, he was more creative than I was, and I would follow his lead for the most part. Of course, the ruler guided bullets were flying in these depictions, which seemed very realistic to us. The teacher surveyed all this with equanimity. She was very popular with the girls because of her proclivity for leading the class in singing popular songs such as TAMMY, which I remember in particular. She would let on that these singing sessions were some sort of daring clandestine activity. Nevertheless, she did allow us our space battles.

What’s curious is that if you replace the words “guns/firearms” with “Jews” in this article, how it would perfectly read like German history 1943.

It used to be that we knew the schools were full of libs. But the cops were (generally) on "our side".

I'm not so sure any more.

I saw Maryland in the story and clicked away. We have reached a level of evil where a little boy may be bullied for merely saying a word. A word. Think about that and wonder at what has happened to the adults involved to turn them into monsters.

We were there on a stopover. Went through Annapolis. Spent a few days there. Were wondering about living there.

Place gave me the creeps.

It’s a great place for what it offers historically, pre auto streets, the Carroll museum and the Naval Academy.

It’s a very old seaport. Wonderful

Right in the center of town, on the most prime real estate- top twenty in the country perhaps, is a beautiful contemporary building maybe 4 stories high. Gilded lettering. The Maryland Dept of Education building.

No no no.

I did not want anyone with that kind of greed and sense of entitlement pretending they would be in charge of my kids.

It was so much power. Like a live snake in the living room.

We high tailed it outta there after some good shopping and crab cakes and a visit to the O’Club.

Now when I see a story like this, and I see it’s from Maryland, I just think about how powerful they think they are over their subjects and how their subjects allow it.

Ca Reepy.

But, also, a theory of child development which holds some weight, is that boys need weaponry, and the mastery of it, at a certain developmental stage.

These libs do not have any business running things if they do not want to consider what they are doing.

Boys, when deprived of their toy weapons, will find something else, a lot like water seeking its level.

For instance, any movie or story worth anything has the protagonist gaining mastery over weapons (and transportation, money, bad best friend/brother).

It’s more than tattoos.

It is a VERY bad idea to teach young boys weapons are bad. Such a detrimental path for the feminists to take us.

Men, wake up and speak out. These little guys cannot easily overcome this psychological abuse. Besides, who’s going to defend the country ten years form now? These guys? The govt takes their weapons away when they want to learn how to use them and then the same govt’s going to teach them when they get drafted to boot camp how to shoot in 6 weeks?

No.

I spent a few months in Maryland on a contract job before my present job. Spiritually bothersome stuff there... yeah. But I did join spiritual forces briefly with a Baptist church in Hagerstown. At once it appeared to be unusual since it was about 1/3 black people, with a white preacher who preached a conservative Protestant gospel. Normally that kind of a situation in liberal-land is about as stable as cats and dogs. They had Good Stuff going on at that church. Then the Lord called me to the Nashville area where there is even Better Stuff going on. The Lord is powerful here.

The good Lord quite often shows up in modest places that don’t go all screaming commercial like televangelists. I think there’s more light in Nashville than there was in Hagerstown, but it could be an effect of being further along in my spiritual battles too. God is not a one time experience. God is a life.

________________________________________________________

The Constitution is a failure because we’ve become a godless hedonistic society. The only way to save the Republic is through a Revival, prayer and repentance; only when we put God first will the Constitution function as it was designed. But, most churches today are empty hollow shells that do nothing but entertain and tickle ears in order to feed the self-centered hedonism filling the pews.

******************************
Yes to that but there’s some work the Lord leaves to us, like cleaning up all the bloat and junk laws that are strangling the Constitution.

If an animal is covered in ticks, we can’t simply pray them off. We remove the ticks and pray to the Lord for the stomach and strength to get the job done and we pray for the animals health.

That’s how I understand it, anyhow.

I agree on every point but one. The Constitution is not a failure. We failed the Constitution because of the reasons you state.

The nation, for the most part, has turned it’s back on God. Now He is going to let us fend for ourselves. If the nation turns back to Him, He’ll be there.

But I don’t see the nation as a whole turning back to God.

May God have mercy on the United States.
