Well, to be honest, we didn’t think we’d get to this point quite yet. We thought it would take at least a few more months before students got suspended for TALKING about guns, but apparently we just went ahead and surpassed that.

In WA a six year old boy was sent home from school and initially suspended after talking about TOY guns to his classmates.

According, Aguirre said he and his wife were told their son was suspended for talking about guns at school, and because the girl who reported him felt her “health and safety were threatened” when they were called to the school last week. Officials said the issue is addressed in the district’s discipline handbook in the section on student rights and responsibilities.

But Aguirre said there’s no provision that students are prohibited from talking about guns at school, nor did the district provide evidence that the boy threatened to harm a student.

The suspension was later overturned on appeal from the parents, but the fact that they even had to do that and the child had to be sent home is a travesty.
