6-Year Old Suspended For Pointing His Finger Like a Gun

A 6-year old boy in Maryland received a one day suspension from school for pointing his finger like a gun and saying, “Pow!”

This kid probably would have got into less trouble for pushing one of his classmates to the ground.

Alexandra Petri of The Washington Post gets the absurdity of the situation:

Look, if we have a problem six-year old boys pointing fake guns,  the place to start is not the kids….Children used to play Cowboys and Indians or Cops and Robbers. These days, they’d be arraigned for genocide and theft. If we have a problem with children with imaginary guns, the answer is not to clamp down on their imaginations. They only put out what we put in.

Whether it’s suspending six-year olds or a newspaper publishing the names of registered gun owners, let’s stop making Adam Lanzas out of people who aren’t.
