    Fla. Bill Banning Suspension for Gun-Shaped Pop-Tarts Moves Forward

    Students in Florida are one step closer to being able to freely make gun symbols out of pastries and their fingers without retribution. After several instances across the country of schools disciplining children for playfully recreating guns with innocuous objects, a Florida bill barring any punishment advanced past a House panel this week.
    The Republican-introduced “Pop-Tart Bill,” named after a Maryland eight-year-old who was suspended for biting his snack into the shape of a gun, unanimously passed the K–12 subcommittee with bipartisan support. “This is addressing a zero-tolerance policy that often will not allow people to use common sense because their hands are tied,” one Democratic lawmaker explained.
    Students would also not be punished for wearing clothing featuring guns or supporting the Second Amendment under the bill. Lawmakers in Maryland and Oklahoma have introduced similar legislation.

    We are at the point where the state legislatures have to pass special bills to protect or children from teachers unions, local school boards and the dept of Education.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The fact that this has to be written into law is sad and a sign that it is time for a fresh start in government.

    I've met several homeschooled kids and I believe the parents did an excellent job. I don't have kids but if I did I wouldn't want them being taught values contradictory to mine until they were adults and responsible for their own lives. Then if they bought into the bullshit that's their problem.

    When I first saw the headline, I thought "They make gun-shaped Pop Tarts? Why have I not heard of these things yet?".


    Then I read the article and saw that the kid had bit his into the shape of a gun and some dumbass educator saw this as some kind of threat. Where are these teachers coming from? At least my 4th grade teacher laughed when I wrote "Dump Nixon" on the bathroom wall.
