I Am Serious. And Don’t Call Me Shirley!

posted on May 21, 2015

Just when we thought political correctness concerning kids and “guns” had hit rock bottom, two new reports make us pause and remember saner days in years past.

According to a report in The Washington Times, the Boy Scouts of America have now banned scouts from shooting each other with water guns, as pointing a “firearm” at another person isn’t considered “kind.” To boot, BSA regulations also stipulate that water balloons be filled “no larger than a ping pong ball.” Meanwhile in New Jersey, a fifth-grader has received a five-day in-school suspension for accidentally bringing a foam Nerf-gun “bullet” to school in his pocket, according to a Breitbart.com report. 

If the term, “Stop this world and let me off,” comes to mind when reading this, you likely remember a simpler time when kids were allowed to be kids, play was considered good and imagination was praised, not smothered.
