Great, now they will want to ban high capacity boxes of crayola.

There is no reason for any american to carry more than 8 crayons.... Because when the founding fathers were talking about freedom of speech, they only meant with ink quill pens.

Somebody looked in a bag, saw a marker, and thought GUN! Then she yelled "GUNNNNNN!!!!"
Find out who she is and make sure she never works with kids again.

Why do we even have these black assualt-style Sharpies? First of all we need to change the color. Black is the color the military uses for their markers. And no civilan needs a military-style marker. Also, we need to impose strict regulations on current civilian legal Sharpies. They are far to easy to conceal. We need laws which restrict the tube length to no less than 18". Also there is no need for high capacity ink cartridges. Currently you can spread ink all over a piece of paper without having to reload. We need to have cartidges that carry no more than 10 seconds worth of ink. People can still write if they want, they will just have to reload more often. Forcing people to reload more often will give a chance for others to get the marker away from them if they start writing on the walls.

We need a safety feature integrated into the cap as well. Right now you can just pull the cap off, and it is armed and reaady to write. Idealy it would be a biometric ID or a RFID implanted ring that you wear when you want to use your marker. This would keep people from stealing your marker and using it in an act of vandalism. Lastly, do we really need a little clip thing on civilian owned markers? Those clips allow you to attach multiple markers to your clothing, which no civilan needs. Only the military and law enforcement need to carry extra writing devices on them at all times. If you have to carry the marker in your hand, you can only carry 1 at a time, and people will be able to see that you have a marker on you.

When officers arrived it was quickly determined that the student did not have a weapon, but had a marker concealed in their clothing.

Ah. So, "in their pocket"?

limeyfellow: fusillade762: I still remember all the times we used to take toy guns to school. Think I'd get in trouble today packing one of these?

And mine didn't even have the red thingy on the barrel.

Toy guns were always the best in the 70s and 80s. Made from metal, no crappy orange markings, and they handle caps just fine. Kids today can't get good stuff.

Crack, crack, click, click, crack, click, crack, crack crack...

Back when dinosaurs walked the earth I crushed a small glass tube "stink bomb" at the end of my grade 8 science class which obligated the following class to evacuate the room due to the overpowering stench. Hilarious 14-year-old humor.

Would that be a terrorist act now?

This is the kind of thing that follows every high-profile school shooting. Remember when they were banning trench coats after Columbine?

Let me guess, these are the people with whom we're expected to discuss "reasonable" gun control.

Just imagine what would have happened if he managed to use it to write a scroll of genocide.

Tragedy averted.

Today you'd be lucky if you were ONLY shot 15 or 20 times.

So this is what elementary schools nationwide have to expect from now on. How unfortunate. :(
