I just tracked down quite a few recent stories of anti-gun hysteria still going on in our schools. It looked like things were dying down in the first semester of the 2013-14 school year, but it seems as the new year has rolled around zero thought…I mean tolerance, has reared it’s ugly head again.
In this case a Suffolk, VA high school has recommended expulsion (that is being outright kicked out, not just suspended) because the student accidentally brought ::GASP:: an unloaded BB gun magazine to school in his backpack.
Oh. My. God. A BB gun magazine (they call it a clip). I also have to wonder if this is from an actual BB gun and not an Airsoft gun. For the uninformed, BB guns fire heavier, metal projectiles compared to Airsoft guns, which fire plastic projectiles. Airsoft guns are designed to shoot other people with, BB guns are not. The media doesn’t seem to make a distinction.
According to HamptonRoads.com,
No one was threatened and there were no injuries from the incident. Charges were not filed against the student, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said in an email.
According to schools policy, a student recommended for an administrative or expulsion hearing is suspended until that hearing. The hearing must be held within 10 days.
Is this really something worth totally screwing up a kid’s academic career over?
This is just the latest example of the zero tolerance hysteria which has swept our nation’s schools.
