This is what these gun control nuts are turning neighborhoods into.  Kids aren't even allowed to play with the toys in their own yard with schools suspending them.  Sickening...

Two seventh-grade students in Virginia Beach, Va., were handed long-term suspensions Tuesday that will last until the end of the school year for playing with an airsoft gun in one of their front yards while waiting for the school bus.

This is the part that concerns me...

"The school's so-called "zero-tolerance" policy on guns extends to private property...."...

So, will the schools then be able to "inspect" peoples homes to determine if their policy is being violated in private?

I do think the boys went a bit overboard with their targeting (if the report is true)... but this is ridiculous...

What about kids who hunt?  I don't know the specific laws in this kid's state, but in most states, kids his age can legally hunt with firearms under adult supervision.

I hope he does get suspended for the year and that his parents bring one hell of a lawsuit against the school district.

This happened in Virginia, too.

One of the original thirteen colonies.. Home to several key figures reverent of Liberty; Washington, Jefferson..

They'll take whatever ground they can get their hands on.

Next they'll punish the boys for thinking about guns in their own homes.

All while pushing the Common Core initiative on them.

I haven't been able to confirm this yet and it's mostly hearsay at this point, but I've heard that the school systems are even thinking about even banning the word "gun". So if a kid says any word that sounds remotely like the word "gun" in their statements that has nothing to do with a gun (ton, sun, etc.) and the teacher mistakes it so or mishears it, the punishment for it could be just as worse.  

Trying to put the fear of  their wrongful retribution into them, is what they're doing.

If anything, there is an increase in the amount of gun violence in tv/movies and video games. It seems pretty counter-productive if this is what they are trying to do. In the wake of the shootings of the past few years, I think people are overly paranoid and tensions are running high.

agreed, but his sht in schools happens with alarming regularity.
also gun violence on tv, games, is a no no subject to talk about, just as much as mental health.

Wow, and school has only been in session for a few weeks. I can understand police involvement since there was a 911 call. But the school involvement is overboard.

I would say a few isolated incidents. All this paranoia stems from the public wanting answers. We all want to know what would cause someone to snap and shoot up a school. Unfortunately, because we don't know we are punishing people for no good reason. An endless series of wild goose chases.

Sadly this type of thing will keep on happening and institutions like schools will keep pushing the proverbial envelope until people finally wake up and say "ENOUGH!".

See..if places like schools (for example) keep on doing this type of thing to children and no one says anything and many even support it then they will do it to adults. Children are societies lab rats so to speak.

What they do to them they will do to the rest of us.

Also, has anyone noticed that for the past few years/decades that children have been increasing portrayed as being nothing more than budding criminals that we just HAVE to spy on every second and control their every thought and movement?
