If this is what we've come to, and we obviously have, it's time to accept that we are a failure as a society. Total, abject failure. Time for some society that still has balls to come in and take over. It obviously won't be difficult if this tiny piece of plastic is so traumatizing.

That's pretty stupid.  But given that it's the daily fail, there's a good chance none of this actually happened.

True story time:

I was ten months old and happily playing with lego when my dad came down and saw me. He freaked because he had read an article about how kids could choke on lego and took them all away. I started doing what any kid would do, bawl. My mom gets upset because, fark you the baby's crying. So my dad gave me some pots and pans to play with. One of the things given to me was a handheld colander. Long wood handle and a metal hook to hang by. Now my parents are supposedly arguing because all I'm doing is beating the shiat out of the pots and pans making banging noises and so now it's "fark you he was happy and quiet now he's making more noise than a one man band falling down the stairs" Anyways, while no one is looking at me, I put the colander in my mouth. Got half the handle in and managed to hook my jaw as well. So I start doing what kids do in these situations, bawl. My dad sees this and flips the fark out. Convinced I'm choking he yanks the thing out of my mouth, cracking my jaw in two places and pulling my four baby teeth horizontal, in the process.

Never take lego away from kids. The consequences will be disastrous.

Also, never tell your kids these stories until they're grown ups. They won't understand.

Look, the reality of the situation is that this kid never should have been in possession of this gun to begin with.  The Second Amendment was intended only for LEGO people in a well-regulated militia.

Incidentally, this is the first image I saw when I did a GIS for "lego militia."

Shortly after Columbine, my son's Denver elementary school implemented the "safety procedure" of having visitors stop at the front desk, fill out their own stick-on name tags, and wear them while in the school.

I moved mine to my ass one day.  The only challenge came from one of the Wolf Cubs in my den.  "Mr. Unicorn, you're not wearing a name tag!"

On other occasions, my tag bore the names, "Jeffrey Dahmer," "Eric Harris," and "Dylan Klebold."  No reactions whatsoever.
 
2013-05-28 09:58:41 PM
Too bad you can't buy Lego guns in bulk. I'd buy a bucket full and surreptitiously scatter them about the school grounds the next time I had to pick up my kid.

I'm totally doing this the next time I have to sign in at the Elementary school and get my stupid tag.

I think I'll put my name as "GOD".  Let them prove I'm not.

The way I read this, the reason for the detention wasn't zero tolerance or the "gun", but the disturbance caused on the bus by him and the other kid.

If that was my kid, I would tell them that they did nothing wrong, it is the adults who are insane.  My god, how did earlier generations survive the countless casualties brought about by shooting each other with toys, fingers, sticks, etc.

Sounds like your dad and my mom probably held conference calls on dumb parenting decisions.  My mom was slightly  concerned about my siblings and I swallowing small things like Legos, but she was more intent on making sure we never heard a curse word. Every time we heard something funny like a curse word, she'd tell us in a loud stern voice to never use that word, and we'd of course say it continually until it drove her insane.

My dad, OTOH, just laughed quietly when we ran around the house saying "Don't fark with the babysitter" while my mom had an aneurysm trying to not saying anything while my dad shushed her. We dropped it in about 3 minutes.

Where does it say the kid was suspended?

From TFA: Crane's son has been forced to write a letter of apology to the bus driver. He was also given detention Tuesday and could be temporary stripped off his busing privileges.

That seems totally reasonable. He broke the "no toy guns" rule* and had to write the letter and got a day of detention. The only person that is getting punished by stripping him of bus privileges is the mother, who has to get out of her bathrobe and drive the kid to school.

*Whether the no toy guns rule is reasonable or even enforceable is debatable.
My kid has the toys in the picture. Is the thing in the foreground a sci-fi gun or a drill? What about the big pickaxe things on the ankylosaurus, are they weapons?

My son was sent home from school after being interrogated by the police, office administrators, guidance counselors and principle for drawing a penny sized Zombie killing rifle in his notebook.  Teacher saw it and hit the panic button.

He can carry a baseball bat in school....but damnit....penny sized ink renderings are not tolerated.

Too bad "removable" = "will be lost immediately".  Consequently my Star Wars figures were mostly pacifists.  There's a reason Hasbro sold so many of those extra weapon packs for GI Joes.

I can't wait until my daughter is in school and we get a letter about something like this, so I can send a letter back saying "I'm sorry, I thought my child was attending a school run by intelligent adults".  Maybe all this zero tolerance nonsense will have blown over by then though.

I sure hope Lego has tight security on the injection mold that makes these guns. If they fell into the wrong hands someone could violently take over toy town! Did that kid get a full ATF rectal exam and detailed background check before he bought the Lego gun? Just think what would happen if someone got the code and started making them on a 3D printer!
