Student suspended 3 days for having photo of gun on school laptop

report this ad

Someone please alert Dianne Feinstein so she can add ‘photos of assault weapons’ to her legislation ban, because apparently we’re worried about those as well:

Just ridiculous. Now photos of guns are threatening or offensive? Wow, and this is in Arizona too.

    Freinstein also needs to add gun cutouts on white paper. A little 5-year old was humiliated in front of class because she had one.

    • MiketheMarine

      Well, I propose we outlaw cars. They are very, very dangerous and kill about 100 times the number of people every year. Along with cheese cake. How DARE anyone eat cheese cake. The fools……..

      {sarcasm off}

    Glad to see the young man’s suspension was lifted but he shouldn’t have been suspended in the first place. Guess he doesn’t have free speech rights though. Can’t help but wonder though if he had the hammer and sickle as his wallpaper would have been suspended or received an award?

    • Orangeone

      Reminds me of Scoop’s 6th graders assignment in TX post!

      • sjmom

        My first thought as well which is why I posted the question.

        • Orangeone

          Wondered if that was where you were going 🙂

  • Orangeone

    I’d like to look at all the students’ school-issued laptops. I bet I could find something “offensive” on 100% of them. Unbelievable. Where is the ACLU re: 1st Amendment????? Crickets

    • clockwindingdown

      The schools rules on “Offensive” is very generic, according to the news broadcast. It would be interesting to see what their list of “Offensive” includes.

      The father should be suing the school and the teacher. The schools over reach and over reaction could label this student a “risk”. Meaning no acceptance into military, denial of a gun when of legal age to own, all due to a school that violates the students rights.

      There is no law against a picture of a gun. There is nothing “Offensive” about a symbol (gun) that has freed millions of people.

      The school and the teacher should be made to pay, they are the ones that need to be punished. They are the ones the broke the rules, by violating the students right.

      We need to hold the people that commit these crimes accountable, if we don’t who will?

      What lesson did the teacher, teach this student, how did the school educate those paying attention? This behavior must stop, those responsible held accountable, and not allowed near children ever again! They are predators destroying our nations youth of their rights, making them conform to their values of submission to authority legal or not!

      This must stop! We all pay the price of not acting and correcting injustice. Those that commit these crimes become embolden when not held accountable, and will only increase their attacks!

      • Orangeone

        I would find a pix or mention of Barky Boy offensive, wonder how many I would find on those laptops

        • clockwindingdown

          What if the photo was “O” shooting?

          • Orangeone

            The pus Skeet? So Twitter is a buzz with Skeet Gate :):):)

            • clockwindingdown

              I’d be interested in seeing how the school would have reacted had the picture been of the POTUS skeet shooting…

  • Nukeman60

    I think that every student that has a background picture of Obama should be suspended. After all, that picture is ‘offensive’ and ‘threatening’ to our way of life.

    Fair is fair.

    • ……punishment should be harsher than that. A gun can destroy a life, Dear Leader is destroying generations.

      • Sober_Thinking


    • Sober_Thinking

      Spot on.

  • Don’t conform and you will be punished.

    • MiketheMarine

      Good luck with that punishment part. There are more of us than them and we are just getting started.

      • I hope so.

        And I also hope you know that was sarcasm…sort of. That is what the left is doing. It is what they always do. Punish, threaten, intimidate. Rage and anger always at the surface and always volatile.

        • MiketheMarine

          Yep, those are the signs of a dimwitted liberal. Now, when I get angry, or close to the point of violence I tend to go silent.

          • Me too. My husband says that how he knows to run. My daughter says that when I’m not yelling she knows that it is deep kimchee time as well. 😉

            • MiketheMarine

              And every friend of mine, male and female knows that if we’re out in public and I start taking jewelry off like my watch and shove it in my front pocket to be prepared for a fight or threat headed in our direction that I’ve identified.

              Funny, how once you’re taught to keep your eyes open for potential threats, you NEVER stop that practice. If you’re with me you don’t need to watch outboard. Just keep an eye on how I’m behaving.

              • Thanks for the warning! 🙂

  • JoeMontana16

    But you can learn about a trannys struggle in the 6th grade now.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      There’s probably a computer desktop wallpaper for that.

  • But I’m sure that if he had a picture of Stalin or Mao on his laptop, the school would be just fine with that. Disgusting.

    • Octavian Jones

      But he did … he had a picture of a communist country, Yugoslavia. Kid should have been smarter to understand what he was glamorizing on the computer. Yugoslavia is a country that committed masacres. The rad star is what Che Guevera wears on his beret. General Patton has white satrs on his helmet the same like on the American flag.

      • MiketheMarine

        Shoot, Maobama’s slogan this last election was, “Forward.” It was also Hitler’s Motto and no one seemed to care.

    • PatrickHenrysBody


    • Libertyship46 – Thanks for clearing that up. Now I know why kids in school are taught American History of unions, gay and lesbian culture, community organizing and not about the how and why this nation came to be. You dare not mention guns were used to secure our independence and freedom, and you would be expelled for having a picture of a Continental soldier with a weapon. It’s just too scary and politically incorrect. But, without those guns, we’d all be speaking German today!

      • tinlizzieowner

        Don’t forget, this is also ‘Black History Month’. 😉 😉

  • Conniption Fitz

    It would be cool if EVERY child in every school across America posted guns on their computers and FB pages, pasted guns on their notebooks, wore Tshirts with guns and pointed their fingers and went, ‘bang-bang’ all recess long.

    Imagine the leftists going all faintified with the vapors.

    • MiketheMarine

      Or, at every Parent Teacher night at every school, every parent shows up carrying a weapon.

  • Conniption Fitz

    – reply went to wrong place

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    Guess a picture of a bullseye is out of the question as well. Was pin the tail on the donkey also judged a forbidden game because it was offensive to liberal Democrats?

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Sarah Palin got into trouble for that:


      The leftists mainly on the Democrap side used that map to blame the Gabrielle Giffords shooting on Palin. However, one of their own maps with bullseyes targeting opponents on it was perfectly acceptable.

    • Orangeone

      Not if it’s the Target logo 🙂

  • Sober_Thinking

    What kind of “weapons” do the PC Police carry? Pansies?

    Utter foolishness.

  • Sober_Thinking

    The teacher is the real criminal in this situation.

  • The think police in full effect. I’m glad to hear that the school reversed it’s decision and came to it’s senses.

    • tinlizzieowner

      “I’m glad to hear that the school reversed it’s decision and came to it’s senses.”

      Only because of the publicity ‘flack’ over it.

  • TickedWhiteDude

    If we only had a way to know when people thought about guns, we could start a prison camp for those right wing thought criminals.

    • MiketheMarine

      When are the brown shirts coming to get me? I’m thinking about a specific gun right now. I better be arrested. Code 3, troublemaker alert.

  • aPLWBinAK

    This is what happens when the communistic MSM and DOE are allowed to successfully demonize inanimate objects while simultaneously removing God from the schools and culture.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    This is just another example of the uber-politically correct thinking and behavior that has permeated and is harming our society today. If he would have been suspended for using his own computer to put the desktop wallpaper on, that would have really crossed the line. Perhaps he was ignorant of the policy regarding school computers. It certainly appeared as if he just didn’t realize what the policy was, anyway. I’m glad the school changed the punishment, even though I feel a suspension was still too harsh.

    • notsofastthere

      Now the kid knows. He should be ok if he puts pictures of condoms and the morning after pills for the wallpaper, or maybe a Gay Scout leader gleaming with adoration at Obama.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        LOL…exactly right!

  • notsofastthere

    Can the school compromise on this one? If the kid points the gun at a picture of a fetus, that will show he is pro-abortion and all will be cool again.

    • MiketheMarine

      But if he points his picture at a picture of Maobama is that an attempt on the Chairman’s life?

      • notsofastthere

        He would get suspension for the gun picture, and incarceration for terrorist threats against the anointed one. His parents sent to reeducation camp for wrongful indoctrination of a minor and child abuse.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      A picture of a gun pointed at a fetus in a pool of urine with a crucifix in it would be acceptable as well. Maybe even the symbol of Islam would be allowed as well.

  • Octavian Jones

    Why isn’t anyone else outraged that the kid put a picture of a communist flag on his laptop? I wonder if he has a Che Guevera shirt in his closet and his dad is ignorant to that too. Really, really sad that people are oblivious to Communist symbols.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Which country’s flag is that? It doesn’t look familiar to me. It must be an old one because I don’t recognize it. If it’s the flag of one of our enemies, I’d like to know which country the flag represents. I believe he just thought the AK looked cool with the background provided and decided to use it for the wallpaper.

      • Octavian Jones

        It’s the Yugoslavian flag. The country we bombed to stop attrocities against Muslims in 1999 … an undeniable fact that the Islamist world conveniently always forgets when ciriticizing our views towards them.

        The red star is a symbol of communism. A major pet peeve of mine when at Fourth of July celebrations and people decorate using red stars, the color of the star on the American flag is white, not blue, not red … white.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          Ah, okay. Thanks Octavian Jones. I don’t believe the kid knew which flag it was or the history behind it. If his dad knew, he obviously sure didn’t educate his son about it.

  • From WND: “2 cautionary tales of gun control” by Joyce Lee Malcolm, who documents how, after a school massacre, the U.K. banned handguns in 1998. A decade later, handgun crime had doubled”.

    AND LIE.
    AND LIE. CNN, kick that liar out.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Kids in schools can’t draw a gun or use their finger to similate a gun, but they can take morning after pills dispensed by the school without their parents’ knowledge and that’s ok with the sex-crazed leftists:

  • James

    Yeah, but it’s just hunky dory to allow these same students to go to violent Hollywood hypocrite-made films all day long. These people are idiots.

  • cabensg

    This has become a very sensitive subject and although many, or should I say most, of the school incidents, like a child pointing their finger like a gun, are stupid, and should be ignored, kids using a school computer should be told not to do this. This is also about common sense. I don’t agree it was a suspension worthy incident. I know we can’t trust most teachers to explain this to students so parents should. If a child wants pictures of guns at home on his computer fine. Just because there was over reaction to even the most innocent actions by children at school doesn’t mean we should cause un-necessary worry which something like this could. I’ve heard over an over if only they’d acted on an early warning sign something bad may not have happened. I don’t think that was the case here but it does seem provocative when you consider the strain many schools are under to avoid anything that could lead to violence. Let’s face it their damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

    • notsofastthere

      The PC society leads to a litigious society that leads to overreaction which leads to the shutdown of speech and expression which leads to fear, anger and frustration which leads to us becoming Sharia compliant or turning on our neighbor.
      Just like Obama and Marxists want us to be.

  • TickedWhiteDude

    Ban kids!!! Wait…the left already does that…

  • 911Infidel

    The school system thinks that their interpretation of the First Amendment is the correct one in the little self-righteous Marxist/Positive Law bubble that they slime around in.

    Au contaire mon ami.

    We shouldn’t have to challenge these miscreants in court all the time. We should just fire them and start over again. Oh wait….teachers unions…..

  • 80s_kid_wants_rainbow_back

    I bought my son one of those popping cork guns at Knotts Berry Farm last night. Instead of enjoying the funny popping noise and how much fun he was having all I could think about was the cavalcade of ridiculous suspension stories we keep reading about. Sign me up for the Revolution, I’m so sick of this [email protected]

  • 57thunderbird

    The wussification of America’s young male children continues.

  • DebbyX

    No pics of guns but it’s okay to dispense birth control and morning after pills without the parents knowledge or consent! I’m glad my son is out of school.

    • 57thunderbird

      That makes two of us.

  • dneuwen

    can the family of the said student sue the school administration for violation of one’s right to freedom of expression? if so then the parents should be cajoled and supported into suing the school so as to teach a lesson to these liberal/progressive thought police infesting the academia that conservatives will not take it anymore lying down but there will be a price to pay for any more of such infringement.

  • Jay

    They’re attempting and probably succeeding to some degree to indoctrinate a whole generation against firearms. Pretty soon they’ll airbrush all the muskets from the painting of Washington crossing the Delaware.

  • Mary Sieg

    STOP THIS INSANITY! I think we should put armed guards on every school bus and in every school! One way door into the school and bullet proof glass on windows. I don’t care if the kids have to walk thru a metal detector. Whatever it takes, but taking out some kid with a dumb picture of a gun…??? REALLY??? And a child was also suspended for making a gun out of lego’s. Let’s take out this kid with the pic on his laptop while Chicago continues to unload lead like confetti. The smart people are not at the top in this country.

  • The new “Norm”. If It Looks Like a Gun, Then It is a Gun; No Exception! Oh, the Insanity of it all!
