Once again, the anti-gun fanatics are running loose in our children's schools.

And this time they are punishing a kid who did the right thing! As a mom, this one has steam coming out of my ears.

First-grader Darin Simak goes to Martin Elementary in New Kensington, PA. On Wednesday he went to school just like any other day but, when he arrived, he realized there was a toy gun in his backpack.

What did Darin do?

Darin tried to do the right thing by immediately bringing the toy gun to his teacher and explained that “he knows he’s not supposed to have it.” His mom, Jennifer, said, “So I send my child to school. My child discovers a fake toy gun at about 1:30 p.m. He turns it in to the teacher and he’s sent to the office and suspended.”

Teach your kid to never trust a back stabbing liberal.
Tell him to just stay quite and say nothing if ever in a situation like this.

Hope this hasn’t permanently screwed with his head.
Doing the “right thing” (even if it is leftist BS) shouldn’t have this kind of repercussion, especially on a mind that young.
His parents will need to be on top of this...

Zero Tolerance is cover for the idiots running our schools because they have no wits or common sense, they are only there to indoctrinate our children into being good little government dependent drones who will never question their government overlords.

It's what is taught in the education degree programs in all our colleges and universities.

The kid is learning what many of us have learned over the past few years ... government, and the people who depend on government for their salaries and lifestyles, are, generally speaking, officious, intolerant, conformist enforcers for the progressive totalitarian state.

The only way we can defeat these people is for every parent in every public school in this country have their children carry a fake pistol in to school every day. And they should instruct their children to go to school and say “BANG YOU’RE DEAD”. I mean from K1 to K12, every day. And they should also have every student wear an NRA T-shirt. If we do this, every day, until they finally say “OKAY, WE SURRENDER” and never again will they make any more very stupid “REGULATION”, ever again.

Educators are overwhelmingly a cohort of collectivists - which in a land predicated upon the individual, amounts to walking/talking treason.

Horse whipping or caneing will not change the mind of an indoctrinated collectivist. Organ banking removes the treason and is a small amount of restitution considering the enormity of the damage the educator class knowingly inflicted on America.

Additionally, organ banked educators won’t draw pensions for services they knowingly did not perform while in the class rooms.

I have a grandson in 1st grade and I always think of him and worry when I read stories like this. Then an incident did happen with him. Three weeks ago, my daughter asked me if she could borrow my lunch bag for her son to take lunch to school and I ok'd it.

I got a call from her later in the afternoon. I had completely forgotten that I keep a steak knife in one of the pockets. Our grandson told his teacher about the knife. He was praised for informing about it & they kept the knife in the office until my wife could go and pick it up.

That was it...I was in total amazement. No suspension, no swat team, no idiocy based on zero tolerance, just that he did the right thing by informing the teacher.
So I'm glad to say that common sense prevaled in this case - a very rare case. We need to return to this level of reason.

When I was a kid all of the teachers had a drawer full of confiscated water pistols. Some would even return them at the end of the year. Wonder what teachers today put in that big bottom drawer.

New state law: The Common Sense In Authority Law.

This applies to school superintendents, administrators, teachers and others in authority.

1) Magic is not the same as reality. A picture or model or text or oral description of a gun is not a gun, and pretending to shoot a gun is not the same as shooting a gun. If an adult cannot distinguish between the two, they should not be in a position of authority.

2) Adults in positions of authority are authorized and expected to administer many varieties of discipline. Attempting to abrogate this authority by summoning police officers to deal with non-emergent disciplinary situations indicates that these adults are unsuitable for positions of authority.

3) Likewise, when police officers respond to a non-emergency school situation involving a minor discipline matter, they should both refuse to do so, and even consider issuing the responsible adult a citation for filing a false report.

1. Government is out of control.

2. "The authorities" are often idiots, lack common sense, and have no moral or intellectual integrity.

3. Never trust stupid people, and "conventional wisdom" that you hear parroted constantly is usually wrong.

So yes, I'd say VERY positive lessons! Normally it would have taken this kid till the age of 30 to chuck liberalism. With libs help, he's done it in 7!

From their website:

Welcome to Martin School…”Where Mind Meets Challenge!” Our focus is to provide each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience. Academic emphasis on the core content areas of reading, math, language arts social studies and science will remain a priority here at Martin School. Building on each year’s curriculum will allow us to reach state and local assessment standards. Instruction in the fine arts, physical education and technology complete our program providing each child with the opportunity to develop areas of skill and interest. The Martin School staff takes great pride in its nurturing environment, high expectations and strong academic success. The fact that Martin School students have met AYP standards for the last five consecutive years reflects the quality of our teachers, students, parents, curriculum and academic goals. Continued parent partnerships with teachers and staff here at Martin will ensure that each student engages in a successful school year. This school year is developing into an exciting new challenge for Martin School. We meet everyday with enthusiasm and dedication to the children and families of the New Kensington-Arnold community.

Ok...So, we get the mom's comment. Where is the dad?

And...If parents are dumb enough to send their kids into the government's K-12 single-payer and socialist-entitlement schools, then this is what they should expect.

Remember. Nearly every government teacher and principal in this nation attended the government's prison-like single-payer schools and were then trained by godless Marxists in Marxist-run colleges of indoctrination (oops! “colleges of education”). What should we expect from this? Rational thinking? huh? /s

Finally....The government's single-payer kiddie prisons ( oops! “schools”) are the way they are because armies of teachers **WILLINGLY** go to work every day and make them that way. In return for hurting children and endangering the freedom of the nation they **willingly** accept money.

I won't have a government teacher or principal for a friend. They are too evil, too stupid, or too much of a Useful Idiot to be a friend. I don't have abortion workers for friends, either.
