Second Grade Student Suspended for Drawing Stick Figure With Gun

The bliss-ninny zero-tolerance reaction to some tender-aged student drawing a picture which includes a gun is completely STUPID! Any young child is going to emulate what they have seen on TV, in the movies, or in video games. To suspend a Second Grader for such childish, yet NORMAL behavior runs the risk of making that impressionable child afraid of doing anything brave.

Then they wonder why no one charged the shooter in the Virginia Tech attack. "They" are making America a nation of cowards!

I'm glad I send my daughter to private school. Not only does her school not over react to things like this, some of her class work (she is in first grade) actually shows pictures of a gun (as an example of what begins with the letter "G"). She recently brought home a paper that was part of a reading exercise and the story was about a guy that went on an elk hunt. One of the questions was "Bill used a (fill in the blank) to hunt", and the correct answer was "gun."
