If pink bubble guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have pink bubble guns


MOUNT CARMEL, Pa. (AP) A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.

Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days but was reduced to two.

Attorney Robin Ficker says Mount Carmel Area School District officials labeled the girl a "terrorist threat" for the bubble gun remark, made Jan. 10 as both girls waited for a school bus.

Ficker says the girl didn't even have the bubble gun with her and has never fired a real gun. He says she's "the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania."

Pennsylvania went to Obama in the last election, but PA is primarily Republican. The State legislature is 90% Red and the Governor is Red.
So this is not a case of "librulz inna norfeast".

This is a case of stupid over-reactive people going too far too fast without even thinking for a moment about their actions.

If the school has a non-violence policy that's dandy. But when does the age of the 'offender' get taken into account? When does a bubble gun get taken into account?

Suspending 5 year old girls for bubble gun remarks. Aren't all kindergartners supposed to be armed anyway? Isn't that what the NRA wants?

"Mom says daughter was told she could go to jail over threat."

That is fucked up.

We have no idea what the context of this event is. One of the girls could have been a witch from Oz. Soapy water is highly corrosive to the flesh of Ozite witches. A bubble gun could be considered a lethal weapon.

No need. In order to utilise it effectively you have to be as mad as Bullet-Magnet. Which, luckily, I am.

Let me see now ......

Renovate Guantanamo to include detention facilities for imagined-to-be minor terrorists? Should a 5-year-old be subject to sleep deprivation? Water-boarding??

I can guarantee that there are people in the United States who think water boarding kids is fine.
