Two 6 year old boys were recently suspended from a school in Maryland for waiving around handguns during recess. This was not the first time children have been suspended for possessing handguns. Earlier in the year, one 6 year old was suspended after firing two shots from a handgun. Luckily, no one was harmed during any of these incidences.

First of all, I would like to know how a couple six year olds got a hold of handguns. Was daddy stoned and they stole the guns out of the gun closet when he was passed out on the floor? Or did the liberal left give the kids the guns so that they could push more garbage legislation? Just curious.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say you completely ignored the OP?

Ah yes, the wonderful Liberals that wish to place gun restrictions handing out guns to little kids.

Makes perfect sense of course.

Actually, this is still a relatively current topic. Something similar happened a little over four months ago in October 2013.

This is relevant to the "Gun Control in the U.S." thread, but as this specifically involves children and a total lack of guns, I think it merits discussion. After all, we are speaking of children (who have no knowledge of existing gun laws) and hands (incapable of performing any actions a true firearm would).

I'd like to pose the following questions: With the previous cases in mind, where do we draw the line between "safety-driven justice" and "fear-driven intrusion?" Do you think those in favor of gun regulations truly believe that this is a threat, or are they exaggerating it to gain support?

Also, in light of recent "incidents" in WEPR,
-Do not post a personal attack on another user
-If you are quoting a source, you must post the source
-Do not stray from the topic at-hand to other topics in WEPR

Jordan Bennett was suspended for a day after administrators at Harmony Community School in Harmony, Fla., said the gesture was an act of violence, WFTV.com reported.


hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, very funny. now there is someone thinking that a "gesture" is "violence". it's pretty obvious that it's an "overkill" on "gestures", if you know what i meant.

first of all, gestures are not violence themselves. they may facilitate violence but are not violence themselves. if a gang member give you a middle finger via-a-vis punch you in the face as a result of you returning the "favor", you can't assume giving someone a middle finger as in the same degree as you punching them. violence is by definition an act when someone attacks someone else, often to get them to do something they do not want to do by making them feel pain or fear. you can't attack someone using your middle finger or your pretend-pistol hand gesture and physically or mentally damage them right?

There's a proposal in Oklahoma to remove penalties from students that aren't actually a threat. It includes a section permitting pastries after this. My Business Law teacher said his kid got in trouble for having a Lego gun (not a constructed "full-size" thing, but like this). When he got called about it, his words to the principal were "You've got to be ****ing kidding me."

I like that the bill has "Common Sense" in the title. That could be a thread of its own by now. "What is common sense?"

How about girls and Barbie dolls? I know several people who have young daughters that take all the clothes off their Barbie dolls for...whatever reason. I have a cousin who did the same thing, and then pulled Barbie's head off and left her in her yard. Surprisingly, she did not grow up to be a stripper or a torturing psychopathic serial killer. She instead grew up to be the most enthusiastic Republican on the planet.

Odd.
