Unbelievable! A Law Needed to Protect Children from imaginary Weapons
 
   

Yes, it appears that we are now protecting children from weapons that don’t exist. Zero Tolerance has become so intolerant that children with guns made out of pop tarts, chicken wings or even made from a gesture with ones hands has caused Grammar school children legal problems, simply because a teacher or principle can’t determine  what is (or is not) a real threat.

Unbelievable!


A proposed law that would ease school rules when it comes to fake weapons is causing a stir.

It’s called the “Common Sense Zero Tolerance Act” and the bill’s author says it will protect children in school.

“Real intent, real threats and real weapons should always be dealt with immediately. We need to stop criminalizing children’s imagination and childhood play,” explained Sally Kern, Republican from Oklahoma City.

“If there’s no real intent, there’s no real threat, no real weapon, no real harm is occurring or going to occur, why in the world are we in a sense abusing our children like this.”

Kern authored the bill after hearing about incidents in other states where students faced harsh punishments for incidents involving fake weapons. She said some school administrators just have not used common sense, such as with the 2nd grader from Maryland who was suspended for chewing his pastry into the shape of a gun.

House Bill 2351 states schools shall not “punish, humiliate, intimidate, be condescending to, or bully a student” who has “possession of a toy weapon.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Make all the laws you want. As long as we have people in positions of authority that have no ability to think or use common sense it won't matter.

Keep one zero tolerance policy. Zero tolerance for idiots being in charge of children.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

I am trying to think of a single politician I would trust with my kids for 6 hours a day.

Drawing a blank here ....
