Preschooler Suspended Over Spent .22 Casing

posted on March 24, 2017

In a pathetic example of anti-gun political correctness run amok, a 4-year-old in Illinois has been suspended for a week from his preschool for bringing a spent .22 shell casing to class in his pocket.

“I was met with a stone-faced teacher who said that my son had a shotgun bullet,” Kristy Jackson, Hunter’s mom, told Fox2now.com. “I was horrified thinking, ‘where could he have gotten this?’”

In reality, the so-called “shotgun bullet” was simply a spent .22 casing the boy had picked up off the ground while visiting his grandfather, who is a police officer. But that didn’t stop the school’s administration from suspending the boy for seven days, a move the mother called “paranoid.”

While the school’s vice president told the news station that it wasn’t just the spent casing that led to Hunter’s suspension, his further reasoning shouldn’t exactly strike fear in teachers and administrators. It seems Hunter also has been using other toys as make believe guns—just like most other 4-year-olds have done since firearms were invented.

Oh, the horror!
