COLUMBUS, Ohio A central Ohio principal says she suspended a 10-year-old boy from school for three days for pretending his finger was a gun and pointing it at another student's head.
The boy's father says he thinks it's the adults who are acting childish after the boy was suspended from Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in Columbus last week.

Liberals are increasingly mis-managing our schools.
We do nothing.
Take back American education.
“alternative elementary school”?
Dad, if you don’t like libs, don’t live near them.
Was he defending himself???
SYG extends to fingers as well.
WE MUST HAVE MORE FINGER-GUN CONTROL LAWS !!!!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s time to pull your kids out of government schools, people.
Don't ask. You probably wouldn't like it.
We’ve got some real “bad” kids in these schools(mostly from fatherless, drug addicted moms, hip-hop saturated families) that belong in reform schools, and here we are “suspending” this little kid. This country is insane!
So if this kid puts his hand in his pocket, is he simulating a concealed weapon?
The country isn’t insane, LIBs are. The principal is a LIB idiot who should be fired without compensation or future benefits.

Nebraska Firearms Owners Association Announces Offer to Privately Subsidize Handgun Training for Teachers After LB879 Passes.
He’s lucky he was only suspended. If those fingers were loaded, he may have had to do some hard time.
I second your motion!
It's an alternative school. Some kids get crazy if someone just points at them. The kid had to be way out of control to even be there, and in a sane world all of those thugs-in-training would not be in public schools at all...they'd be in prison.
I’m through having any kind of sympathy for parents who find their and their kid’s lives being turned upside down by government schools. These places are known quantities. But most american parents are a bunch of feckless, lazy welfare queens, especially the ones in the suburbs. Oh, some bureaucrat just victimized your kid at the government school you chose to send them to...? GOOD! Stupid should come with consequences.
Child hand registration coming soon to your Elementary Schools.
In parts of East Africa, if someone is a short distance away and you put your hand out toward them, palm down and repeatedly bend & straighten your fingers, you may think you a waving "bye-bye" when in fact it means "come here".
I would hate to make a cultural "faux-pas" when visiting an elementary school by thinking I am communicating "you da MAN!" when pointing at someone. I don't think I could take another three day suspension from 4th Grade!
Little boys are guns.
“Child hand registration coming soon to your Elementary Schools.”
It’s not the hand registration that scares me...it’s the confiscation that is sure to follow...
‘The kid had to be way out of control to even be there, ‘
Then this must be the child’s fault?
So then, you are saying that because children attend an alternative school that they must be out of control?
Devonshire is a Project Adventure School. Our school themes include challenge, risk, trust, cooperation, and problem solving. Students in grades K-5 are involved in hands-on types of activities in the classroom, the gymnasium, as well as field trips throughout our community. Our unique school program includes climbing walls in the gym and participation in ground level initiatives and high ropes courses at Summit Vision’s Outdoor Adventure Center. Our focus is to teach students how to think, not what to think. Our school has earned a state ranking of Continuous Improvement.
Some kids are put into alternative school for radiating the conservative values they pick up at home.
I'm not saying the school might not have gone overboard. But you know what? In that kind of fluid active environment the "school" has to make the decisions.
School kids nationwide should stage a “shoot-out” nationwide to put an end to this. One day soon, all kids should just start having play gunfights with their fingers. Let the schools try to suspend all of them.
Kids on strike for finger freedom!
Next, they’ll be chopping of those offensive fingers and hanging them in the principal’s office as a reminder to those who might think about using them. On the wal beside them will be the teeth used to chew AR15 poptarts.
We are sooooooo blessed in America to have a Vice President who NEVER forms his shooting hand into a finger gun!
All part of the attack on men, boys and masculinity. Boys like guns and knives and always will. I had cap guns when I was little and my liberal parents thought nothing of it. All the boys had cap guns. We would run after each other and fire the cap guns at each other.
The feminized men and the feminazis who run this school are trying to castrate this poor kid.
Prostitutes have more respectability than lawyers, politicians and politically-correct educators.
