A kid brings a ****ing shotgun to school, and you still bitch about him getting kicked out of school. Zero tolerance is the end result of people who constantly bump the line...and bump the line...and bump the line. Eventually, authorities have to say, "**** it" and throw common sense out the window. Now, you can't bring a toy gun to school. You can't point your fingers like a gun. You can't bite your sandwich into a gun shape. You can't wear a shirt with a picture of a gun.

There is simply no room for using common sense in judgment, because people like you think that it's just fine and dandy if a kid brings a real gun to school as long as its not loaded...or it is loaded, but he keeps the safety on...or the safety is off but he doesn't pont it at anybody...or he does point it at somebody but not above the waist...or he points it at someone's head but doesn't shoot them...or he does shoot them but only wounds them...
First off, I didn't say it was ok for a kid to bring a gun to school. I just said that expulsion and a felony charge were excessive.

Second, people like me aren't the reason zero tolerance policies exist. Quite the opposite. It's the people that are incapable of applying common sense to look at things on a case by case basis. For instance, looking at a good student, who had a legitimate (albeit irresponsible) reason for having a shotgun in his vehicle, and deciding that its not on par with someone who brings a gun to school with ill intentions. The people who are incapable of expecting a grade schooler to know the difference between a weapon, and a pop tart bit into the shape of one.

Don't blame me for your inability to apply common sense.
