That’s right, folks. This is the fear-based state of America’s modern-day education and legislation systems.
To start, every type of gun you can (and children do) imagine must be banned at school. We must brainwash all our children that guns are bad (mm’kay), that the “stupid Second Amendment” needs to be repealed, and that even imaginary guns are such an evil, horrible transgression as to be punished as if they were actual firearms that could actually lethally hurt someone.
(Unless, of course, those guns are in the hands of the government and its many, many agents…)
Squirt guns have already long ago been banned within schools themselves. Hell, we live in a country where a picture of a gun via computer desktop wallpaper was banned and the student in virtual possession of it was suspended. Kids have gotten suspended and expelled from schools across America for everything from finger guns (making one’s finger into an “L” shape and playing cops and robbers on the playground in grade school) to breakfast pastries bitten into an “L” shape, to a Kindergartener’s pink plastic Hello Kitty bubble gun.
New York’s Attorney General Eric Scheiderman even recently sent cease and desist letters to major retailers throughout the state ordering them to stop selling toy guns because he claims it violates state law.
It’s not just toy guns or even imaginary guns but anything that anyone could even attempt to perceive as a weapon. One kid was recently suspended for making “terroristic threats” with his one ring from The Hobbit movie because he said his magic ring could make another kid disappear. No, I didn’t make that up and I’m not kidding. I wish I was. (The school didn’t even wait to find out whether or not the kid said he could magically make his classmate reappear with it…)
Deadly squirt guns — which are only “deadly” in this country because we live in a police state where cops shoot kids with toy guns first and ask questions later — are now the target of a new ban in Tennessee, but not at schools…
That’s right. Now the stupid isn’t just confined within the school itself. It is legally spilling out all around the school as well.
Via The Daily Caller:
As part of a bill to lift local prohibitions on permitted gun carriers bringing their weapons into parks, the House of Representatives in Tennessee has added and approved an amendment that would ban bringing fake guns within 150 feet of schools.
A person commits an offense who intentionally carries an explosive, explosive weapon, permanently disabled firearm, hoax device, imitation firearm, machete, or sword openly within one hundred fifty feet (150′) of the real property that comprises the grounds or facilities of a public or private preschool, elementary school, middle school, or secondary school.
Inclusion of “hoax device” opens up the prospect of any toy gun that looks realistic could violated the law. [sic]
Notice is says “hoax device” and “imitation firearm.” That means that anyone, not just a student, who brings even a squirt gun anywhere within 150 feet of a school in the state of Tennessee is now “committing an offense” punishable by law.
That’s how the ban is written. Common sense isn’t just rare, it’s nearly extinct these days. Sure, it’s a game of semantics, but tell me, how do you think this law will be interpreted and applied?
Knowing what we know about the absurdity of Police State USA, can you imagine all the ways in which this new “law” for “our safety” will likely get innocent citizens arrested, hurt, or even killed? Good luck walking down the sidewalk near a Tennessee school with a Nerf gun. The terror squad will likely get called after the area is locked down for a five-block radius for concerned school staff calling in threat of an “active shooter.”
Well, former Attorney General Eric Holder did say we need to brainwash everyone against guns back in the mid-’90s.
Now we see how that agenda is turning out, don’t we America?
No word as of yet on whether or not finger guns and breakfast pastry guns also fit the bill under “imitation firearm” in Tennessee, but considering the time we’re living in this country…
You better not eat your Pop Tart wrong anywhere near a Tennessee school is all I’m saying.
