More nutty zero tolerance at schools, the case of the paper gun

The public school officials don't feel that it is necessary to explain their actions to the public and refuse to return calls from the media, but somehow they think that it is OK to publicly humiliate this young girl.  The picture of the very sad girl in the story tells it all.
A Philadelphia elementary school student was scolded and searched by administrators in front of her entire class after she pulled out a paper gun in class last week, according to her mother. 
Melody Valentin's mother, Dianna Kelly, tells Fox 29 that school officials went too far when they reportedly punished her daughter for pulling out the gun, which she says looks like a folded sheet of paper. 
Fox 29 reports that one of the fifth grader's classmates reportedly saw the paper gun and notified administrators as she was going to throw it away. 
"He yelled at me and said I shouldn't have brought the gun to school and I kept telling him it was a paper gun but he wouldn't listen," Melody tells Fox 29. 
Kelly says school staff searched her daughter while other students watched. 
The gun was made by Melody's grandfather, according to Kelly, who says her daughter has suffered nightmares as a result of the incident. . . .

It's the thought that counts. Anything that reminds gun ban leftists of the gun owners who are philosophically opposed to them is prohibited, even an L-shaped piece of paper. Political incorrectness is a punishable offense, even if it's harmless.

As Oleg Volk said it so well:
"The entire concept of prosecuting innocent possession instead of harmful actions is actively malicious because it ruins real lives over imaginary offenses."
