Or as our current Attorney General put it:
It's not a squirt gun, it's a bubble gun. It doesn't shoot liquid, and the school is completely insane for treating it as a weapon, just as another school punished a kid for pointing his finger and saying "kapow". It's not the object, it's the mindset, which they are trying to eradicate. They want children to hate and fear guns as much as they do.
"We have to be repetitive about this, he said. We need to do this every day of the week, and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.
