rebuttals to "Gun Control"
I wouldn't blame foreigners for thinking the United States is a bit schizophrenic.
Yet it's also a country where little kids get suspended for throwing imaginary grenades while playing alone on a playground. A country where cops arrest 10-year olds for having toy guns. And a country where small children get kicked out of school for pretending their hands are guns and saying "pow, pow."
And now, apparently, it's a country where kids can't point a pencil at a buddy and make shooting noises.
Here are some of the absurd details from a local CBS news report.
I'm almost at a loss for words. This wasn't just one brainless bureaucrat. At the very least, both a teacher and an administrator were involved in this farce.
These are the people we want educating our children?!?
At least the dad had the cojones to criticize the bureaucrats.
With apologies to Martin Niemöller, I can't resist this bit of satire.
By the way, the United States is not the only nation suffering from a pathetic and wimpy form of political correctness. Here are some examples of how our cousins across the ocean have gone bonkers about guns.
♦ A women who was being threatened by thugs got in trouble with the police for brandishing a knife in her own home. These are all example from my series comparing brainless policies in the United States and United Kingdom. Though I'm ashamed to say that this latest story puts the United States in the lead in this government-stupidity contest.
♦ There was a proposal to prevent children from watching Olympic shooting events.
♦ A man got arrested for finding a gun in his yard and turning it over to the police.
♦ Starting pistols ♦ There have been calls for knife bans.
♦ A man was arrested for shooting a burglar
These are all example from my series comparing brainless policies in the United States and United Kingdom. Though I'm ashamed to say that this latest story puts the United States in the lead in this government-stupidity contest.
