    WMAL: WMAL EXCLUSIVE: 11-Yr-Old Suspended From School For Merely TALKING About Guns

    The father of a middle schooler in Calvert County, Md. says his 11-year-old son was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about guns on the bus ride home ... According to his father, he neither threatened nor bullied anyone. "He said, I wish I had a gun to protect everyone. He wanted to defeat the bad guys. That's the context of what he said," Henkelman said. "He wanted to be the hero."

    The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff's deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. "He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he's going to have to search my house. Search my house? I just wanted to know what happened." No search was performed, and the deputy left Henkelman's home after the father answered questions in a four-page questionnaire issued by the Sheriff's Office.

    our society used to raise its eyebrows at the Salem witch trials. Now, it mindlessly gathers the wood.

    In former times, the bottom fifth of graduates went into education. Guess that must be the bottom tenth now. The educator class seems incapable of reason.

    Another point that I have not seen outlined in this is the questioning of the child without a parent present. Questions like "do you have a gun on you" to resolve possible safety issues are one thing, asking anything past that without the parents present (with an LEO present or doing the asking) is a no-go. This is a growing and disturbing trend in our schools, I have indicated before I used to go to school with a shotgun, a .22 rifle and a bow in my car/truck, now if a student even mentions the word gun or wears a shirt with some firearm reference on it, the whole world caves in around them. This is silly at best, evil based on what I see in the current trend.

    I grew up around guns. My father was a cop when I was very young and I faintly recall shooting his pistol when I was around 4 or 5. I had my own .22 rifle around 6 or 7 and remember sitting on the bank of our stock ponds shooting snakes, turtles, and stumps. On Saturdays when we went to town I bought boxes of ammo at the ice house without question, at least up until things started changing in the late sixties and the same guy that I had bought ammo from for years could no longer sell to a kid. It has been a down hill slide since then and the progressives are fully in control now and that is where all of these stupid moves are coming from.

    sell to a kid? in Kalipornia, next year it will be illegal for anyone to sell to an adult, unless the state says he can buy.

    To get out of a warrantless search, much less why ... All un-freaking-believable.
