This is total B.S. from a complete and total moron at the school.

To me, it looks like the kid has merely seen the Sylvester Stallone movie, Judge Dredd. It's a very cool and very funny movie. The drawing looks a lot like the LawGiver2 guns they use in the movie. They are very awesome, but very fictional, weapons.

When I was a kid, I drew movie scenes all the time in school. I drew fighter jet combat scenes from Iron Eagle on the backs of my worksheets, but I never stole an F-16 and went shooting. Those school officials need to get their facts straight!

Imagine that the boy's father was serving in Iraq with a firearm. If the boy brought a picture or drawing of his Dad to school, would he be suspended?

Well if true, then that's just sick. We tax ourselves to fund a military to defend our freedom. We train the best soldiers in the world and send them to do their job. Then we tax ourselves for a socialistic school system to educate the public. If the school suspended a student for a picture of Dad with a gun defending our country, the school should be brought up on charges of treason IMHO.

Oh and BTW, doesn't our constitution guarantee the right to bear arms? I would think that would include pictures of arms.... It's sad to see our rights slip away one by one, and it is hard to imagine the world we might live in 50 years from now. Will it be legal to hunt or fish? Or even shoot skeet? Will my offspring be able to have a martini with dinner? Or smoke a cigar afterwards if they choose? Will McDonalds be allowed to sell Hot Coffee or fatty foods? As the old saying goes, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. That should be the government motto as it grows bigger and bigger.

This poor kid! What's going to happen next? What if they draw my favorite weapon a ? Will this result in suspension? How will they draw the line on what is considered inappropriate?

They actually had a lawyer on FoxNews this morning arguing that if they had taken this kind of stand with the boys at Columbine that tragedy might have been prevented. I don't recall that those two boys were out drawing pictures of guns. They had actual guns.

That's aboslutely insane thinking there.. I guarandamnteeya that there was probably some "REAL SIGNS" those kids at columbine were about to go postal.. I highly doubt they were crude drawings like this though..

The whole worlds gone mad.

TGIF EVERYONE!!

Lets just clear up this "Columbine" business right here and now. Those two disturbed murderous malcontents were nothing more than long-term targets of ridicule, harassment and abuse. As a result, those two ostracized rejects snapped. I wont attempt to offer suggestions on eliminating the cruelty, hard-heartedness and lovelessness thats so apparent in the world...not too sure thats possible. But when it does happen, when they do snap, there is only one thing that can be done about it, and that is for everyone in the vicinity to be well armed. Though this is regretably only a "reactive" solution to the problem, it nevertheless is the best solution. In this case, teachers should be carrying concealed weapons permits, as an adjunct to the SRO's. Hell, we trust them with our kid's brains, right? So doesnt it make sense that we trust them for their physical protection...we sure are quick to sue when they get hurt.

And this is highschool here, where I dont advocate extending that level of responsibility to students that young and often irrational. But like on a college campus? Absolutely, they should have the right to be armed too! This will effectively lessen the loss of life should one or more dangerous a**holes with deathwishes decide to go "postal". I promise you that.

I was subject of heavy ridicule in school too. My mother once mentioned having to worry about "quiet kids" like me who get picked on by the rest of the students as they are the most likely to snap. Teachers and faculty typically do NOTHING to stop it until the ridiculed kid tries to fight back. Then both parties get in trouble. I experienced this B.S. myself in school.

Fortunately, I never snapped. By high school, I was getting into shape for the military and learned to throw punches back when I received one, detention or not. I received them a lot less during my later school years.
