Six Year Old Suspended for Finger Gun

Are we insane? Seriously. Has our entire country gone totally and irretrievably looney?

A six year old boy was just suspended for pointing a finger gun at other students. A finger gun. Unless this kid is like Chuck Norris Jr. his fingers aren't hurting anyone.

Come on. Really?

Here's the details from MLive:

To the little boy's mother, it was just a 6-year-old boy playing around.

But when Mason Jammer, a kindergarten student at Jefferson Elementary in Ionia, curled his fist into the shape of a gun Wednesday and pointed it at another student, school officials said it was no laughing matter.

They suspended Mason until Friday, saying the behavior made other students uncomfortable, said Erin Jammer, Mason's mother.
So that's the new standard, huh?

Look, the Pope even does finger guns.



Look out!!!! The Pope's about to go Boondock Saints on us.



Uh-Oh. Ghandi's got a gun!!!!!!!!!!!!



Watch out! Tom Cruise is dangerous! Well wait...bad example. He is actually kinda' crazy. But you know what I mean.

(Note: I know that's not Ghandi)

Chuck Norris was a Trending Topic on Twitter all day today. I talked about the funny tweets on my show http://bit.ly/a1TXze

We're living in a lunatic asylum. Did you hear about the New York assemblyman who introduced a bill to make it illegal for chefs to add salt to their recipes? $1000 fine for each violation. I thought it was a joke, but after checking, it's all too true. And there were three sponsors to the goofy bill!

Reason # 578 to homeschool. Our three year old was packing four markers the other day. Talk about feeling uncomfortable. Any object around here can be turned into a lightsaber or a gun. Sheesh, people really are idiots.

I don't have any kids, but I'm all for parents homeschooling when they can. And not just for reasons like this. I think children can learn so much more when they are not subject to institutionalization.

According to the local TV channel, he was suspended for two days not a week.

From the article:

"The mother admits her son has had other regular behavior problems, including being aggressive toward other students."

Whoa... boys are aggressive? They play rough? Who'd have ever guessed?

Heck, suspend the kid for actually playing too rough with the other kids, not for this nonsense.

On the lighter side, Matt, I would be careful around Gandhi. He's back... and this time, HE'S MAD.

Chuck Norris wouldn't hurt you with his finger he would erase you from existence.

Define agressive and who the heck is doing the defining? Sounds like more anti-boy stuff from female teachers who've feminized our schools and are trying to devalue men as husbands and fathers.

Anti-boy. So true. Not everyone can be a girly, after all, no matter how hard they try.
