I guess it would have been ok if the kid had pointed a pistol at another kid, and made writing noises.

Teach your kids to make duck quacking noises instead.  Then when they get in trouble, they can say it is a magic wand that transforms people into ducks.

Then society will be safe.

trackerbri: Hasn't happened with my kid yet, but the day he gets suspended for some PC crap like this, I'm going to make a quick stop to stock up on ammo on the way to pick him up.  He can serve his suspension at the range learning to put holes in the x-ring.

snocone: MaritimeGirl: The parents should get together and have every kid go to school with a pencil and point them at the teachers while making the "pew pew pew" noises. Then they'd have to suspend the entire school. Repeat indefinitely until this idiocy is stopped.

If a parent showed up with a pencil and pointed it at the teacher, would the principal call the cops?

If it was an Assault Pencil, I would hope so.


Was it black with an extended eraser and a grip?

The only way to deal with these zero tolerance quislings is to treat them like the dumb animals they are.  Look them square in they eye and say, "NO!"  Whatever administration-speak they try to hand you, just keep saying, "NO!" ...like you would a dog that just pooped on the rug.  If there is a newspaper handy, swat them on the nose with it.

"Sir, we are suspending your son for holding a pencil and making 'pew pew pew' noises."  NO!

"A pencil is a weapon when it is pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made."   NO!

If they are going to act like dumb animals, then treat them like dumb animals.

I'm surpised they don't suspend students for building paper airplanes, because terrorists.

A paper airplane is a weapon when thrown at a tower of books in a threatening way and boom noises are made.

AverageAmericanGuy: Paul Marshall, the boy's dad, thinks the school overreacted. "When I asked him about it, he said, 'Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being the bad guy.' It's as simple as that."

Oh, well. If he was pretending to be one of America's Heroes™ . That makes it okay, then.


Right, right, if he were playing gay vaccuum cleaner or DUI illegal alien, that'd make you happy.  Nobody here feels bad for you that you can't do 20 push-ups, pussy.  Back in your hole.

I don't know what kind of rubric the weapons are using, but I'd give this stupidity an A+. It really is outstanding stupidity.

MythDragon: Obviously the kid should have got more time in suspension, if anything.

Guns shoot lead. Pencils have lead in the middle. Pencils are only two or 3 steps removed from being a gun. And what if that kid had thrown the pencil? The lead tipped pencil could have caused serious injury or even killed the other kid

/Yes, I know pencils are made with graphite, not lead. But that's not the issue here. What matters is that a 7 year old had a pretend gun, and wasn't afraid to use it.


I wonder how many 7 year olds wish they had pretend pencil guns NOW!

The only thing that stops a bad 7 year old with a pretend pencil gun is a good 7 year old with a pretend pencil gun.

PapaChester: A pencil is a weapon when it is held under-hand and swung down in a forceful, stabbing motion.

Not when it is used in an imaginary circumstance as an imaginary death dealing device.

I come down hard on any student pretending to shoot a gun in class. I do not report it any hire up unless the student is also defiant; I have never had to.


I applaud your restraint. And hope you weren't highered to teach spelling.

Bethanne Bradshaw, a spokesperson for the school, had a different view about the situation. "A pencil is a weapon when it is pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made."

So a pencil ISN'T a weapon when you're not making 'bang bang pow pow' sounds with it? This seem to me to be a very dangerous assumption. I will bet you anything that you could stab a whole bunch of people in the ass with a pencil without making ANY sound effects.

To help him learn a lesson, we could have the kid write an essay about what he did wrong, so give him paper and pencil . . .

Uh oh, ... we just created a terrorist!
