Why not fire administrators and teachers who suspend five year olds for imaginary guns?


By Kevin “Coach” Collins

There is a scene in the movie “A Bronx tale” where the father of a young man counsels his son not to attack another young man over a $20.00 debt which has gone unpaid for too long. The father explains this is a small price to discover that someone is not trustworthy. He tells his son to be glad he has been shown how untrustworthy the other man is in this minor matter. “Now you know not to trust him in the future in bigger things,” he says.  

This small lesson begs the question: Why would we trust school administrators who cannot tell the difference between an imaginary “weapon” fashioned out of a cupcake and something that is genuinely dangerous?

The stories of idiots suspending second graders for pointing a finger at a playmate and saying, “Bang” were funny the first dozen times we heard them, but not anymore.

“Imagine that, this fool thinks a child chewing a piece of his lunch into what a teacher THINKS looks like a gun actually suspended the kid!” is the type of comment that gets  late night comics big laughs.

But what is funny about a person we trust our children’s lives with displaying such a gross lack of discernment and judgment? If these people are not able to understand that schools are not attacked by “savage” six year olds but rather by adults with real weapons not cupcakes, why shouldn’t they be immediately fired and replaced with someone who can make sound judgments?   

Who would want a teacher or administrator who is unable to recognize real and present danger to freeze in puzzled inaction at the sight of a genuine gunman marauding through the halls of our children’s schools? Why should we allow these people to keep these positions of high trust? Isn’t it always the schools that proudly proclaim they are “gun free” that seem to be the targets of cowards with guns, real guns not water pistols?

Why can’t we take a cue from “A Bronx tale” and see the poor decisions made by these people as a free look into the future and actually a judgment test they have failed? How long will it be before we see a real shooting at a school run by an idiot who thinks a drawing of a gun is as dangerous as a real gun?   

When children are exposed to such nonsense what is to keep them from concluding that other regulations make no sense and are not worth obeying? Should that become the case then where will we be?

  1. In a two class society, satraps and other boot lickers are never fired. It’s their job to eat out the people’s substance – fiscally, morally and esthetically while absconding with children to be raised by the state.

  2. Recently, a child took out of his bag,a piece of paper with one corner turn off. The teacher insisted it looked like a gun, and other children started calling him a murderer. It is not so much that teachers are over reacting. It is the fact that our children are being indoctrinated into a fear and loathing of weapons, the better to control them as adults. Are the teachers complicit in this? We have to remember that thousands of copies of Saul Alinsky’s book of rules for radicals were sent to unions all over the country, and the tactics are being used.

  3. I’m afraid the administrators/teachers are setting up impressionable children to turn their parents in for owning those (murderous) guns in the future. Especially if our own government shreds our 2nd amendment completely. These progressive tools might find out down the road we can’t even field an military because of such negative feelings drummed into our children today.

  4. The answer is for the parents of the children affected to get in the school administrator’s face and stay there. Start making the lives of the offending administrators and teachers a living hell. These abuses can be stopped very quickly.
