I'm on the side of the school. It would be nice if society didn't condition little kids into thinking guns were cool. They are not toys. They're killing machines! It's especially tragic that little boys are taught to associate guns with masculinity.

I have never seen a gun get up and walk around shooting at people; I have seen PEOPLE using a gun to shoot at people. We don't need more gun control what we need is ENFORCEMENT of the laws on the book.

"AN UNARMED INDIVIDUAL IS A SLAVE; WHEREAS AN ARMED ONE IS FREE!" I am not going to be a slave, are you?
"If you outlaw guns, only the outlaws (criminals) will have them."

You are partially correct. Guns are not really toys although we not infrequently use that term. However, they are cool even though most are defective since they kill nothing. :-)

Guns masculine? My wife calls AR-15s "feminine."

AR-15's are not feminine unless they are pink. Yes, they come in pink!

What's the problem, Mom. Do you want society to condition little kids so you can avoid your responsibility to condition your kids yourself?
Meanwhile, you hire a babysitter so you can have a night out at the movies watching Jamie Foxx kill all the white people, with a gun.

You teach your kids that guns are bad and evil. I'll teach mine gun safety, hunter safety, the 2nd Amendment, tactics and strategy, home defense, and personal responsibility.

Then, when / if the government collapses, we'll see whose kids survive.

Too true. All those anti-gun whiners will come running for gun owners to protect them when the shtf.

Guns aren't toys but they are often life savers. Most of us will be lucky enough to never be the victim of a violent crime, but tens of thousands of us will be victims. Thousands of dead, crippled or traumatized people never thought it could happen to them, but it did. If it does, you're on your own. 911 isn't going to help you. Guns give the smaller, the weaker, the older and the outnumbered a very good chance of fighting back, usually without firing. Predators are out there. Millions of people have guns, handle them safely and are a deterrent to criminals. You can take your chances. BTW, don't believe the gun control people who claim that a gun in the house increases your chances of dying a gun death. Almost all such deaths are suicides.

When will you libs learn that "guns don't kill people, people kill people" using any variety of tools, including hands.
Try this little harmless exercise. Borrow a gun, if you don't have one, fully loaded, safety on. Put it someplace in your house where you can watch it. See if it fires without anyone touching it. Betcha it won't. You might learn something from it.
Oh, and by the way, boys aren't the only ones who play at gun games. There are any number of the female gender who do it as well. And love it.
Your statements re: guns don't reflect the facts. Guns are not killing machines, unless a human being pulls the trigger with intent to kill.
You libs wear me out with your bovine scat.

Then move. Your reasoning is why there's such a disgusting attitude in this country. Along with growing up, there should also be a growing sense of responsibility which the psychobabblists don't teach. The ultimate protector of this country IS NOT government, it IS the citizenry. Just as Obozo and the liberals are trying today, without the back up of an armed and ready citizenry, we'd be slaves under control freaks which is Obozo's intent under the NWO. It's been delayed, hopefully forever, by said citizenry. I, for one of many, WILL NOT, allow the gutless to destroy this country so you can place my children and grandchildren into slavery, which is where ALL socialist countries are at this moment.

I’ve had fun documenting and comparing examples of government stupidity in both the United States and United Kingdom, and today’s story clearly belongs on those lists.

Send this kid to a re-education camp!

It’s also an example of a perverse anti-gun mentality.

How else can you explain a school in Talbot County, Maryland, suspending a couple of young boys for the supposedly horrible offense of making gun shapes with their fingers while playing cops and robbers?!?

Here are some of the
