Kids suspended for using fingers to mimic guns

The PC police are completely out of control. Once again, we have non-substance triumphing over substance. And in the liberal world, this is acceptable. In reality, a child making his fingers like a gun does nothing. It doesn’t hurt anyone, insult them in any way, or threaten. It is quite literally nothing more than a person making an ‘L’ with their fingers. But the American left, which takes pride in looking for ways to be offended, cannot allow this to happen, I assume, because they are irrationally scared of guns. But as tragic as it is, such is the state of our formerly great nation.

Kai Jackson has more on the controversy.

No one is debating the importance of keeping children safe. The question being asked is what’s child’s play and what’s not?

There’s controversy at a Talbot County school after two 6-year-old boys were suspended while playing cops and robbers during recess and using their fingers to make an imaginary gun.

“It’s ridiculous,” said parent Julia Merchant.

This is the second time a Maryland child has been suspended for such play. Earlier this month, 6-year-old Rodney Lynch was suspended from his Montgomery County school after pretending to fire an imaginary gun more than once.
