More evidence of the stupidity of the media - a pellet gun and an airsoft gun are very different beasts.
But lets get back to the story’s core - these kids were playing with an AIRSOFT gun, AT THEIR HOME - NOT AT SCHOOL... and got suspended (and may be expelled) from school? Might be the best thing to happen to those boys! That school obviously isn’t someplace I would want my children.
I know quite a few young folks who play paintball regularly - should they too be suspended/expelled from school?
They were shooting at and hitting kids who were waiting at a school bus stop. They weren’t expelled for playing with guns they were expelled for shooting them at people.
I think it should be treated like a kid who is throwing sticks or pepples at another kid.
If no one was hurt (like blinded by gettng shot in the face), then the matter should be handled at home.
If someone was blinded, the parents should pay medical bills. Not sure what should be done to stupd kids.
If the kids did it on purpose (aiming at someone’s face), then I think something should be done to the kids.
I would feel the same way if some kid was aiming and throwng sticks at another kid’s face with the intent to harm.
