This should be a national law!

Every once in a while some politician has a good idea that should be made law:

A Maryland state senator has crafted a bill to curb the zeal of public school officials who are tempted to suspend students as young as kindergarten for having things — or talking about things, or eating things — that represent guns, but aren’t actually anything like real guns.

Sen. J. B. Jennings, a Republican who represents Baltimore Harford Counties, introduced “The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013″ on Thursday, reports The Star Democrat. “We really need to re-evaluate how kids are punished,” Jennings told The Star Democrat. “These kids can’t comprehend what they are doing or the ramifications of their actions.”

Faster please! And forget how kids are punished: punish the fucking liberal idiots that hope to instill fear of firearms in all kids by getting kids in trouble for pretend or look alike guns and report pop tarts that look like guns as problems. I bet if these antigun activist fuckbags see their careers torpedoed for getting kids in trouble based on a stupid policy that can punish you for having a pop tart shaped like a gun, we will get some balance. I would much prefer sensible laws, but since we can not get those, lets get laws that fuck over the people that abuse common sense in the name of the radical left’s agenda.

    Just what we need, another law to be abused , misinterpreted, and selectively enforced.

    Please explain your thinking behind this declaration. Do you also oppose other common sense laws?

    A well written law, not a knee-jerk reaction law, would go a long way towards DE-criminalizing innocent childhood behavior don’t you think?
    Where we are now is paper guns and pointed fingers are causes for permanent marks on ones school records.

    Yes, I can explain it. First, because I wasn’t clear before, my original comments were directed at the headline of this post. ” This should be a national law”. Which I think would be a terrible idea. I don’t like federal involvement in education, and I sure don’t want more meddling. Second, I don’t trust that the law will be well written. They almost never are. Much as I am not particularly enthralled by those teaching the nations kids, I don’t want laws that can be used as a cudgel against them either.
    We live in a country of over 300 million people, and every time some school principal, teacher or administrator does something really stupid, exposing that stupidity to the light of day is usually enough to get them to stop.
    If you look at the numbers, it’s actually quite rare. There are a lot more murders in this country than there are kids suspended for menacingly pointing a donut at another kid.
    Shit happens, and considering how infrequently this happens, and that when it does happen those who are responsible are usually held up to public ridicule, we don’t need a law.

    Ed’s almost as useless as CM, not worth your effort in other words.

    Exactly how am I supposed to be useful? You know less than nothing about me.

    Are you saying that the answer to an overzealous person who has a point of view you disagree with is to create more Government by creating a law that increases regualation on how adminstrators run their schools?

    The picture of a gun thing isn’t criminal – it’s a stupid teacher being stupid. Sort it out within the system, don’t add more system on top.

    NB – I do realise this is a joke by the way.

    He keeps re-proving how little he knows about me so good luck with that.
    About 80% of balthazar’s posts are one-line ad hominem attacks (but extremely weak and they often don’t even make any internal sense). Apparently that’s “useful” though.

    I guess irony escapes you. Look Ed, I am with you that we should be getting rid of stupid laws, but if everytime and for everything liberals keep passing stupid laws, regardless, suggesting that payback would be passing a few that hurt them, suddenly might get their attention. Frankly, even though I hate the idea of useless laws, I hope this one gets passed and it fucks over some of the anti-gun activists for all it is worth.

    At the end of the day Stupid Should Hurt. Period. But…

    The NEA and other teacher’s unions will never hold these fascist small minded tyrants accountable. It is my belief that these very organizations silently cheer every time this instance of the progressive agenda is pushed.
