Gun Control through Mind Control

Gun Control through Mind Control

The issue of gun control hasn’t gotten a lot of attention in the past few weeks, not with the Zimmerman case hogging the spotlight. I predict that said case will inevitably raise that question again, but in the meantime I’d like to take a look at another walk of American life where guns are not the most popular objects: schools.

Now I’m not suggesting anything as absurd as public school curriculum including courses on marksmanship aimed at five-year-olds, but I have noticed an interesting pattern when it comes to schools and guns. Have you noticed that every once in a while the news talks about a kid bringing a toy gun to school or pointing a chicken finger in similar fashion to a firearm? Have you then noticed that the respective school’s administration reacts like the kid hid an IED in his jeans and admitted having ties to Al Qaida?

Let’s look at a couple of examples of how public schools are cracking down on guns. First there was Hunter Spanjer. This story has been circulating on a lot of Conservative blogs lately even though it happened about a year ago. For those of you who don’t know, a deaf three-year-old student in Grand Islands, Nebraska was asked to change the sign for his name because the hand gesture looked too much like a gun. Although the school did eventually back off, the fact that it would put Hunter and his parents through such idiocy is appalling, no?
