Crisis Averted! Second Grader Suspended After Pointing a Pencil Like a Gun, Going “Phew! Phew!”

Boy who held pencil like gun suspended

This, was a close one:

Boy who held pencil like gun suspended

A Suffolk school suspended a second grader for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises.
Seven-year-old Christopher Marshall says he was playing with another student in class Friday, when the teacher at Driver Elementary asked them to stop pointing pencils at each other.

“When I asked him about it, he said, ‘Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being a bad guy,’” said Paul Marshall, the boy’s father. “It’s as simple as that.”

It’s possible this confused school administration, as liberals tend to see the military as the bad guys.

Here comes the logic:

“A pencil is a weapon when it is pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made,” said Bethanne Bradshaw, a spokesperson for Suffolk Public Schools.

The Suffolk school system has a “zero tolerance policy” when it comes to weapons. And, Bradshaw admits, that policy has tightened up in recent years because of widely publicized school shootings.

“Some children would consider it threatening, who are scared about shootings in schools or shootings in the community,” said Bradshaw. “Kids don’t think about ‘Cowboys and Indians’ anymore, they think about drive-by shootings and murders and everything they see on television news every day.”

Yeah, because of kids sitting down and digesting the nightly news, they are terrified of pencils.

When they see this:

Suddenly, they think they’re looking down the barrel of a gun.

Speaking of which:

So now the logic isn’t so much that the zero common sense tolerance policies are tying the hands of the faculty, but that the children really are traumatized by the television news.

Right.

Mandy Nagy says:

At some point, we may have to consider whether the anti-gun hysteria is actually doing more harm than good to students.

Let me amend that a bit:

At some point, we may have to consider whether the anti-gun hysteria public school system is actually doing more harm than good to students.

I think yes on both.

What say you?

    I can only imagine what they would have done if the kid was playing “Hangman” on a piece of paper. He probably would have been gunned down by SWAT officers for threatening to hang the president or other high officials.

    In a way this is good, because it helps to expose the school system for what it is….one big moonie-camp that exists for the brainwashing of your child.

    You have to admit, a pencil can spit out a lotta lead. Funny that high scholls don’t have a problem with military recruiters signing up the kids to be fodder.

    SERIOUSLY???

    Just a few simple questions, Bethanne.

    Was it a semi or a full auto pencil?

    What caliber was it?

    Did it have a 10 or a 30 round clip?

    Was there a round chambered?

    Was the safety on at the time of the incident?

    One final question, Bethanne -

    ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID?
