A Columbus principal suspended a student for three days last week after the child pointed a "lookalike firearm at another student in class and pretended to shoot.
The boys age? 10. The level 2 lookalike firearm cited in his suspension letter? His finger.
I was just playing around, said Nathan Entingh, a fifth-grader at Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in a far northern section of the district. People play around like this a lot at my school.
Other kids have been caught playing pretend gun games on the playground at Devonshire and werent suspended, Nathan said.
Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year, and everyone should know the rules by now, district spokesman Jeff Warner said. Nathan put his finger to the side of the other students head and pretended to shoot kind of execution style, Warner said.
The kids were told, If you dont stop doing this type of stuff, there would be consequences, Warner said. Its just been escalating. Warnings included three newsletters sent home with kids, he said.
The boys father, Paul Entingh, said no one felt threatened, and its the adults who are acting childish in their response to a typical 10-year-olds misstep.

We are sooooooo blessed in America to have a Vice President who NEVER forms his shooting hand into a finger gun!
Was it a fully automatic lookalike or just a semi auto ?
this happened in a GOVERNMENT school
government is the problem , the enemy , the cancer
government control= socialism
private ownership = capitalism/freedom
being a boy gets you suspended now.
man i couldn’t last a week in todays pc, zero-tolerance-no-think, unarmed-massacre indoctrination centers.
What if he would have pointed his finger like a penis?..
Revolver, single action.
It’s loaded with nails!
And you’re limited to only seven rubber bands on that weapon in New York!

This garbage will continue, and get worse, until/unless the sheeple start holding these morons accountable.
They’d have to slap Biden in prison for life.
Public schools are slime.
Public schools are trash.
Public schools should be razed, the land sterilized, and replaced by a park.
Kill public schools.
As for the NEA....tie them to the schools before the destruction process.
This is not kidding. Get rid of them.
Yup. I was armed to the teeth when I was a kid. Cap guns, squirt guns, bb guns, pocket knives, sling shots, blow guns (straws).
If he pointed it at a girl, it would be sexual harassment. If he pointed it at another boy it would be a friendly signal that he was looking for a gay friend.
Was it John Kerry?
The proper thing to do in response to this for of idiocy is for ALL of the students to do this WHENEVER that jerk shows his face.
If I had little kids, I would tell them to raise their elbow up and fire shoulder launched missiles at their playmates, so they wouldn’t get in trouble for firing a gun with their finger.
If he were picking his nose would they call the suicide hotline?
