    She's clearly in violation of the limit on magazine size. That bottle looks like it holds enough for thirty bubbles. Nobody needs to shoot that many bubbles.

And it's a shame because generations of local children went there and thousands of local adults have fond memories of that school.

    It's not the teachers union that is the problem. It really isn't. It's the politicians, judges, lawyers, civic activists, and ultimately the parents at these schools who put up with all of the crap. If American parents would simply say that they have had enough of these trashed schools, and keep their kids home then something would get done.
    Teachers unions are part of the problem, because it's impossible to remove teachers who demonstrate this kind of idiocy, and because they have become gatekeepers to who gets into the schools. A buddy of mine applied for a teaching position in NYC several years ago. He's a published author with a bachelors in English, taught school in another state and had been subbing in the school that he applied for. He took the exam, which included an essay question on capital gains tax rates, and was told that he gave the wrong answer when he argued against raising them.

    No, the other kids would have been subjected to mandatory sensitivity training for their Islamophobic reactions.

    Squirt guns lead to slips and falls. My high school banned them because they were being used to humiliate students, in particular, female students.
    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.

    Or as our current Attorney General put it:

    "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.”

    Another one. This zero tolerance policy needs to be stopped yesterday. They're out of control.

    Okay, that I can understand. Schools should take measures to prevent accidents and bullying. A lot of these rules are about zero tolerance though. They think if they can "brainwash" kids into hating guns (paper, water, etc), then they can encourage kids not to use them later. It's at the point where teachers are literally trying to ruin lives. You don't call somebody a terrorist or say they should be arrested for bringing a toy gun (arrest suggestion in my latest link). They're out of control.
