According to a report by NBC News, two seventh grade Virgina boys were suspended from school and might be expelled for the year for possession of Airsoft guns.

Not too surprising, many schools have zero tolerance policies on toy firearms, and many Airsoft guns can look pretty realistic.

However, there is a twist in this story.

According to the report, the boys never brought the guns to school, on the school bus, or even to their neighborhood bus stop.

According to NBC,

WAVY News’ Andy Fox spoke with Khalid and asked if he took the gun to the bus stop or school. Khalid answered “No, sir,” to both questions.

Aidan’s father Tim Clark told WAVY.com what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm.

Based on that information we can only assume the alleged incidents took place on private property, completely unrelated to the school.

We agree with the boy’s father, however most of these zero tolerance decisions do lack common sense. Don’t believe me? Just check out some of the stories below from the past year.

What’s next? Suspending students for going to the shooting range or hunting with their parents?
