‘Toaster Pastry Gun Freedom Act’ proposed in Maryland

Daily Caller – by Eric Owens

A Maryland state senator has crafted a bill to curb the zeal of public school officials who are tempted to suspend students as young as kindergarten for having things — or talking about things, or eating things — that represent guns, but aren’t actually anything like real guns.

Sen. J. B. Jennings, a Republican who represents Baltimore Harford Counties, introduced “The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013″ on Thursday, reports The Star Democrat.

“We really need to re-evaluate how kids are punished,” Jennings told The Star Democrat. “These kids can’t comprehend what they are doing or the ramifications of their actions.”

“These suspensions are going on their permanent records and could have lasting effects on their educations,” he added.

A nationwide flurry of suspensions seemed to reach an absurd level recently when Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, Maryland, was suspended for two days because his teacher thought he shaped a strawberry, pre-baked toaster pastry into something resembling a gun.

“I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top of it and kind of looked like a gun,” the seven-year-old told Fox News.

“But it wasn’t,” he astutely added.

As Reason’s Hit & Run blog noted, Park Elementary School officials later offered counseling to other students who may have been traumatized by the pastry.

Senate Bill 1058 restricts the disciplinary options Maryland public school officials can use for any student who “brings to school or possesses” an image of a gun or an object that might look like a gun but isn’t one.

Students could also form their fingers in the shape of a gun without fear of reprisal.

The bill also includes a section mandating counseling for school officials who fail to distinguish between guns and things that resemble guns. School officials who fail to make such a distinction more than once would face discipline themselves.

    OMG, I absolutely have no words. I’m completely shocked and speechless. The world has truly gone mad.

    Yep David, we are truly living in a mental institution.

    On April 1, 2013, I urge EVERY child in grades K-12 to bring a toy gun to school and place such on their desk, proudly displayed throughout the entire day.

    Back in January of 2012 I put up a blog post with two reports in it. One was false and the other true. It was my intention originally to see if readers could figure out which was true, but someone suggested I might cause some people serious mental stress trying to figure that one out, so I let the cat out of the bag early.

    Historians will look at this and assume we all must have been idiots.

    So let me get this straight.

    They’re now trying to pass a law to prevent something that was never against the law in the first place?

    O.K.

    INSANITY ABOUNDS!

    I rest my case.
