The level of tyranny you will live under is the exact amount you will allow.

2-Inch-Tall Army Soldiers Gets School Kid Reprimanded - Publius Forum
-By Warner Todd Huston
A policy of no tolerance for weapons got an 8-year-old boy in trouble at his Rhode Island grade school this week. The boy brought in nearly a dozen M-14 Army rifles to his Tiogue School in Coventry, R.I. grade school and was chastised by the principal for the outrage.
How did he get all those assault rifles into the school you might ask? Why he did it by gluing seven or so of his 2-inch-tall green army soldier toys to his camo colored ball cap for "make a crazy hat" day at school. That's right, a few green army man toys were enough to trip the poor child up in this foolish school's "no weapons" policy. (Photo credit, Seriously. No weapons includes 2-inch-tall army soldier toys holding teeny, tiny representations of army rifles. 2-inch-tall army soldier toys are enough to get a kid sent in shame to the principal's office and threatened with sterner action.

This is the sort of stupidity that makes adults look like utter morons and Kenneth DiPietro, superintendent of Coventry Public Schools, made himself look like a prime time ass by attacking this kid over a school project to "make a crazy hat."
Now, after looking like a complete fool, here is what DiPietro told reporters:
DiPietro said the school hopes to learn from this incident and spend time deciding whether there should be a different strategy for handling such issues in the future.
Well, now this twerp sounds just like President Obama. All about blue-ribbon commissions, strategies, and new ways of "handling issues," but still doing the stupid stuff, anyway. And all this "learning from the incident" after the stupidity is on full display for everyone to see and after the damage has already been done. This genius is a fine, fine example of the idiocy of leftist "thinking," isn't he?
I wonder when Kenneth DiPietro will come out with a press release blaming Bush for this whole sorry affair?
Anyway, now we have to be sure to understand that 8-year-olds aren't allowed to be proud of America's armed forces, proud enough to want to use their likeness for "make a crazy hat" day in our schools. And this at a time when thousands of our men and women in uniform are daily in harm's way. Nice.

WOW. I suspose next they will pertend that the US never used guns in battel and delete it from the history books.

This whole zero tolerance thing is absolutly stupid. I seriously wonder if the toys can even be considered that since now they are technicaly part of a Garment. My kid has some shirts his grandmother made that the buttons look lit the end of rifle shells I wonder if those are allowed. Are shirts with pictures of solders allowed??? what abiut star wars shirts with light sabors on them ?????? I hopr the parents sue and make an example of these idiots. I bet that kid put a lot of work into that project to only have his inthuisam fopr school crushed. I think He should make some more and offer them for sale. Id take one to fund his law suit cool looking hat. He needs to be sent a mass support email. I like the hat it looks like there figting for a hill top took some imagination.

I agree with you on this one 1biggun. I also think that everyone should get together and send they're children to school with toy guns all on the same day. Nation wide. What would the schools do, suspend everyone? If the parents found the backbone that they were born with and actually stood up against the system, the could change the policy.
the schools want to blanket solve all there problems instead of taking the time to consider all the variables. the 17 year old kid that takes in a 100% life like movie prop and waves it around and scares the hell out of every one gets the same punishment as a 7 year old with a plastic toy soldier. IMOO this is people trying to instill there anti gun values by the use of rules. obviously the plastic tou is not a threat and will never be one but they can say it sets the wrong idea that guns are ok regardless of if there is a real threat or not. they want to make kids think guns are bad, there are not suspose to think about them hear about them see pictures of them pertend they dont exist. School should be a place to learn not be intentinaly ignorant.

i was thinking that some Tee shirts with the second amendment written out on the front would be proper atire for a nation wide event. In my state 10 year olds can shoot deer if there in arms reach of a adult. we have a lot of gun owners and hunters here.
