The bill also includes a section mandating counseling for school officials who fail to distinguish between guns and things that resemble guns. School officials who fail to make such a distinction more than once would face discipline themselves.
Great Janitor: When I was in school recess was spent playing war with my friends. We were soldiers, not like real soldiers, more like fantasy style soldiers like from the Contra games (one or two soldiers who could single handedly take on entire platoons). The swingsets were our fighter jets and monkeybars were either tanks or something else. Our art projects were often pictures of soldiers or fighter jets and bombers.According to the zero tolerance policies, we should have all been suspended following our first recess. We never committed a crime, only one of just joined the military, and we all grew up to be normal people. I spend grades 1-6 playing war on the playground to grow up to become an insurance salesman. These policies aren't doing a damn thing. Kids pretending to play war to to play with toy guns and swords aren't a danger. It's kids being kids, just like they have been for ever. I'm glad that someone finally stood up and said "This shiat needs to come to an end." I just hope this doesn't get buried under party politics and fear mongering about the boogey man that is guns.
