Kid Suspended After Making Fist Into Shape of Gun

Here is another example of the hoplophobic society in which we live.

Grand Rapids News:

IONIA — To the little boy’s mother, it was just a 6-year-old boy playing around.

But when Mason Jammer, a kindergarten student at Jefferson Elementary in Ionia, curled his fist into the shape of a gun Wednesday and pointed it at another student, school officials said it was no laughing matter.

They suspended Mason until Friday, saying the behavior made other students uncomfortable, said Erin Jammer, Mason’s mother.

School officials allege Mason had displayed this kind of behavior for several months, despite numerous warnings.

“I do think it’s too harsh for a six-year-old,” said Jammer, who was previously warned that if Mason continued the practice he would be suspended. “He’s six and he just likes to play.”

Jammer says her son isn’t violent, and there are other, more effective ways of teaching him not to make a gun with his hand.

“Maybe what you could do is take his recess away,” suggested Jammer, adding her son doesn’t have toy guns at home.

“He’s only six and he doesn’t understand any of this.”

Here’s my observation. After the 1960’s school shootings became more common. Even as our gun laws got more stringent and the people were being told that guns are bad, look no further than the posted article. We are forced to ask ourselves this simple question, is it working? And the answer would appear to be no.

Some might say that there’s just simply not enough control. But the thing that seems to be very difficult to get through the thick skull of the leftist, is the simple fact that gun control laws do not have a positive effect on the law abiding citizen. What do I mean by that? Take for example the person that is likely to lawfully own a gun and use that gun in a moral fashion. How is this person effected by gun control? He cannot use the tools of freedom freely because of the law that he seeks to uphold.

Now take the person that has no regard for the law. First, he does not care if there is a law that allows or doesn’t allow him to own a firearm, he will do it no matter what. Second, he will use the firearm anyway he sees fit, even in an immoral fashion, because he is not a law abiding citizen. And the nail in the coffin is the fact that the criminal in this case will act the same way whether gun control exists or not.

If the parents of Mason Jammer wanted to really do him a favor they would take him out to the range and show him how to responsibly handle a gun and how to shoot it. They would also inform him that guns require their handlers to be very cautious and very responsible. And they would tell the school administrators to take a hike. But, instead, the leftist school administrators will tell Mason that he is a bad child for making his hand into the shape of a gun. An event that used to be a right of passage among every young boy in America.
