    This is going too far. They are teaching children to be afraid of anything that even slightly resembles a gun. A rough piece of torn paper in the vague shape of a gun got this girl in trouble. Some students saw the paper as the girl went to throw it away, and because they've been taught to sound the alarms at even gun shaped things, they panicked and obediently told the teacher. Were the kids really afraid of a piece of paper or are they completely brain washed to think all people who might like guns, even toy guns or drawings of guns, are evil and should be reported? Have our children seriously been taught to be so afraid of their classmates over nothing?

    We used to play cops and robbers on the playground. Teachers and students used to talk about hunting in high school. Sometimes both kids and teachers would keep their shotguns in their cars. We never had violence.

    Kids used to get into fist fights, mostly the boys. No one made a big deal of it. The boys would get called to the principals office and the parents would handle it when the kids got home. Sometimes girls pushed each other on the playground. There were always some kind of consequences, usually just having adults break it up then talking it out did the trick. No one was expelled or deemed a threat to the student body. Now, there are such dire consequences for the slightest fight or even an argument that kids hold it in. I think being shuttled through the halls of schools like cattle and being told to suck it in and not show anger just causes it to bottle up till kids explode one day. Kids have to be mindful constantly and remember not to mention the hunting trip you took with your dad over the weekend or even discussing that squirt gun or bubble gun you got for your birthday. I can't imagine always biting your tongue and measuring every word because one slip will get the PC police all over you and you'll be labeled for the rest of your school days.

    Liberals clearly don't know the difference between a real threat and an innocent child. Their rules hurt the innocent and don't hone in on the potential threats that may or may not be present. The treatment that children receive over such small things might even add to a disturbed child's mental stress. Yes, liberals could actually make violence worse by their poor handling of it.

    Liberal policies tend to go against human nature. They don't get it that not all people wish to be led and obey those who declare themselves as superior beings. Some people are quite capable of taking care of themselves and fighting their own battles.

    Yeah, I saw this. That poor little girl said "I told him it was only paper and he wouldn't listen" Then he started threatening her with calling the police to take her away. The guy should not only lose his job but get his ass kicked. I would be happy to try.

    That immature and irrational reaction from the teacher is becoming the norm and children are being taught to instantly panic and snitch on the slightest infraction, like mentioning a gun (like the girl talking about a bubble gun) or even a gun drawing. I'm sure those children who are receptive to the brainwashing without putting up a fight get rewarded with praise and maybe even treats.

    Meanwhile, Chicago children go home every night to the inner cities and pray that the only guns are paper and bubble guns.

    The teachers union owns Obammy.

    Problem: Recession

    Solution: Hire more teachers

    Problem: High unemployment

    Solution: Hire more teachers

    Problem: Bad weather

    Solution: Hire more teachers

    They won't be happy until they turn American school children into loony little lefties like themselves.

    I blame parents that won't get involved with the schools, kids aren't smart bombs you can just fire and forget (pun intended), you have to make sure they are properly nurtured every step of the way, and that would include their time at school. Parents and schools should be teaching children what guns are, what they are capable of, why they are used and to respect them, not fear them. Before that can happen we'll have to push about 90% of the libs out of the school systems.

    It's hardly the norm. Who's over-reacting now? You have one idiot teacher and suddenly it's a national problem? If there's anyone that's brainwashed, it's those that see this as anything but an isolated incident. Though it is typical for FOX to play up this sort of thing. It fits their narrative. Fair and Balanced, my ass!!!

    Are you forgetting the 5 year old that was charged by a school for a terrorist threat because she told another student she was going to shoot them with a freaking bubble gun? Are you aware that this child's mother wanted to put her in another school and they refused her because she had a threat on her record. Really, a freaking 5 year old with a record. There is no defending this lunacy.

    This isn't the first time a teacher has completely overreacted to the mention or drawing of a gun. One child got in trouble for drawing a picture of a gun in art class. A big deal was made of that. A little girl mentioned a bubble gun to her friend and that made the news.

    There are many rules that are just plain stupid. Everything from guns to smoking has been held up as a mortal sin. Smokers have to walk 20 feet away from buildings. In Minnesota, you can't even walk down the street smoking or you get fined.

    It's all about making the most ridiculous rules and getting people used to following them no matter how irrational they are. We are in training to obey and they are doing it slowly by having us follow these laws that sound like they are written by someone suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. We know they make no sense and are merely appeasing the low intelligence crowd, but for some reason, we just obey instead of standing up against unfair and irrational laws. Maybe it's time to start protesting a little more. Why should we allow our children to be trained in liberalism and ourselves to become passive in this ugly tranformation of our country?

    I saw the delegates at the DNC convention and that made it crystal clear who is running the party these days. It was a sickening mix of union thugs, Marxists, Communists, Socialist and anti-Semitic hate mongers. They actually put it in their platform that they would not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and denied people the right to speak of God. The angry reaction from the crowd after that farce of a vote to put those things back in the platform revealed everything about the party.

    Even Dems who were running for re-election avoided the convention. The media looked the other way. I'd like to think that the average Dem was sickened by what was going on there rather than merely covering their own butts in an election year.

    To understand the policies coming out of the liberals in Washington, it's important to take a good, hard look at what they've done so far. We have an expanded welfare state and a dumbed down population. We have an all out attack on the private sector. The government has limited the number of loans banks can make to people starting small businesses, for heaven's sake. WTF? At a time when small businesses are going under, the government prevents more from being started!!!

    Obamacare is making jobs disappear. More and more on welfare.

    If anyone has the slightest clue who Cloward-Piven or Saul Alinsky are, they know there is a specific formula for transforming a free, capitalist country into a socialist or communist country run by a dictator. That formula is being followed to the letter and has been for years. The only people who have no issue with that are those who like the idea.

    We are going down a path that leads to disaster, always has and always will. The policies imposed on us and the constant ideology shoved down our children's throats at school have a purpose. Teach them that wealthy people and gun owners are evil. Teach them to be afraid of those who oppose their agenda. Impose more and more laws on the public until they stop questioning you. It's all for the greater good, they keep saying and that is all you need to know. It trains people to slowly cede their liberty. Only an evil government would want such a thing.

    what makes you think this is an issue of liberals? Can you find me a single liberal on this forum who would actually agree that the actions taken against this girl were appropriate?

    No, this is about people overreacting. Don't drag politics into every little schoolyard squabble.
