"A Michigan boy reportedly has been suspended from school for curling his hand into the shape of a gun and pointing it at another student.
Erin Jammer, said her son, Mason, was just playing around when he made the gesture Wednesday, the Grand Rapids Press reported.
"I do think it's harsh for a six-year-old. He's six and he just likes to play. Maybe what you could do is take his recess away. He's only six and he doesn't understand any of this," Erin Jammer said.
But officials at Jefferson Elementary School said the behavior made other students uncomfortable, and they suspended Mason for the remainder of the week, the paper reported.
School officials also told the paper that Mason had been warned repeatedly against pretending to aim his hand at students but continued the behavior over several months.
Jammer told the paper her son isn't violent and doesn’t have toy guns at home. She suggested a less harsh punishment, like taking Mason’s recess away, might be more effective in teaching him not to make a gun with his hand.
"He's only six and he doesn't understand any of this," she said."
This is the same strategy that the Brady Bunchers are using in order to force Starbucks into making their places of business gun-free-zones.
The right to not feel uncomfortable. Coffee drinkers just might feel icky if they believe that fellow caffeine addicts might very well be...gasp...in possession of a firearm. The right to comfort, in their twisted little pea-brains, supersedes the right to self defense.
But at least the Brady's are focusing on adults, and not harmless 6-year-olds.
Sight unseen I do guaranfrickintee you this; the suspended child was NEITHER black nor hispanic nor a moslem.
Politically correct idjits wouldn't dare.
And not for nothin', but how dare they continue to name this den of stupidity the Jefferson Elementary School.
Old Tom would be rolling in his grave...
