You can't make this (expletive deleted) up.
Imagine the penalty for brandishing such a replica weapon at the airport!
That would be even worse if they find > 100 ml. of sauce on it. The kid would have to be busted on explosives charges.
If not tasered after failing to respond to, "Drop your weapon!", he would have been interrogated and strip searched for other contraband and weapons. The 10-yr old would be asked questions about his travel behavior. TSA would determine the Concourse needs to be cleared because of the security breach. Nevermind that the weapon and liquids originated at the sterile-side Pizza Hut, America can never be too safe!

Taylor said the school system has made it clear that if her son eats his pizza into the shape of a gun again and there is a similar occurrence, he will be suspended.
Oh, just go ahead and have him do it again so he gets suspended before the stupidity in that school doesn't rub off on the kid. Or have him do what I did when I was that age - steal some PVC pipe and fittings from a construction site to make a Star Wars laser rifle and take that to school.
Ooooh, one of these days I'm going to build a wireless sensor network that delivers a zap of 40,000 volts to anyone saying those words. I'm an engineer, I can do that.
I wouldn't say steal, repurposed sounds so much nicer.
Comments are, with one or two exceptions, against the school's overreaction.
It sounds to me like an attempt to make boyhood illegal.
Seriously, he's a boy. It's what boys do. If anyone thinks I'm be sexist here, then that person simply hasn't met any real boys.
Trust me, boyhood is a dangerous condition.
