Bizarre zero tolerance case: "Gun Gesture Gets 1st-Grader Suspended"

This is too bizarre:

Lydia Fox says the principal at Parkview Elementary called her earlier this month to say her 7-year-old son had misbehaved during a school assembly by pretending he was shooting a gun.

Fox says the principal told her the boy would be placed in in-school suspension for the rest of that day and threatened a longer suspension if it happened again.

Midwest City-Del City Schools spokeswoman Stacey Boyer confirmed the incident and says the district's policy is to "address the disruption of the learning environment." Boyer says Fox's son "has repeatedly used his hands to simulate a gun." . . .

Suspend the little kid for pointing his finger like a gun? As an anti-gun rights individual recently said to me on the Internet, "No one is trying to ban your gun".
Anti-gun rights people try to placate gun owners by lying about their gun ban intentions, and yet they aggressively move to ban even as little as a small child pointing a finger. The discrepancy in honesty between what the anti-rights people claim and what they do is a huge gap.

Sounds like an unenforceable gun ban, unless they make the kids wear mittens all the time.
