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!
“being a boy gets you suspended now.

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?
An armed populace WAS [ AND REMAINS ] a polite populace.
REGARDLESS of the level....armaments they posess.
there were no school shootings when I was a pop gun totin kid
But a teacher only gets paid leave for threatening to tazer a mentally handicapped kid stuck in a chair.
I even brought a big bang cannon to school and used it in a 6 th grade science project
You didn’t really think that school administrators had finally come to their senses, did you?
the globalist stooge teachers who are pretending to be Americans should be suspended
Here is the video
My sons dog rolls on her back feet in the air tongue hanging when the finger gun is used with the word ‘bang!’
If he were picking his nose would they call the suicide hotline?
Maybe his Dad could give them a “level 2 sexual device” ie his middle finger.
What a bunch of dolts...How stupid do the adults look here....”Hey! Teacher! Leave those kids alone..”
In child development studies, Erikson, et al, weaponry is part of normal sexual development for boys.
Thwarting that is a very very bad idea.
Moms are so Oprahfied, Oprah, who has no idea what she’s talking about, telling people they’re smart for following her cult, that they are emasculating their boys.
For every time this happens, they should be told to try to get a mom to tell her girl to stop wearing pink, orange, red, no red sparkle shoes, no dress up, no dolls.
It’s the same thing.
Boys are not exhibiting violence, they exhibit defense form evil. and threats to their territory. They are hard wired for it by natural law.
He would have celebrated and glorified since he pointed it at another little boy.
Not only is it mega-lethal looking, it shoots through schools.
no one will be safe until this issue is dealt with in the most aggressive fashion.
I taught my dog Jack to do that after about five treats. I miss that little guy...
If I as a child were in high school now ... I would probably be summarily executed for the things my friends and I used to do. If I were in school now and I got suspended for what this kid did .. my dad or mom would go down to the school and knock this admin person on their ass.
That mind set needs to return. Suing a faceless bureaucrat and having the people pay the settlement thru taxes does exactly nothing to stop this idiocy.
Kids see this stupidity for what it is. If they are ANYTHING like I was or any of my contemporaries were ... they would delight in flouting the law and lose all respect for authority. Rules like this are counter-productive. They either turn kids into people who have NO respect for the law or good little autobots who have no spirit. Neither is good for them or society in general.
If he’d used his middle finger to disrespect a teacher or classmate, the liberal crowd who dismiss such child behavior as excusable because of ethnic norms or environmental status would be outraged if he was suspended.
As well they should. Boys grow into men, men vote Republican. Punish them in advance.
Was his finger loaded???
I wish this had been the case when I was in school. Could have gotten out of every oral report and other things I hated with a simple hand gesture.
An extended middle finger salute for the @$$hole principal.
Well, if he was dressed like a faggot he'd likely get some kind of citizenship award for being so courageous.
It may be time for that boy's dad to remove him from that cancerous, liberal infested government indoctrination center and try to get him a valid education.
When I was a very little girl, we had a rope-and-board swing on our big tree. I used to straddle the swing in my gowgirl get-up and pretend shoot of my little cow (boy)(girl)capgun.
Another adult acting like a sixth grade girl in suspending this kid for just flagrant fooling around! Why don’t they grow up!

That is what kids do...
