Three-Year-Old Deaf Boy Told To Change His Name; School Says His Sign Looks Too Much Like A Gun (Video) – Gateway Pundit

Three-year-old Hunter Spanjer was told to change his name. School officials say his sign looks too much like a gun.

.

FOX News reported:

The parents of a 3-year-old deaf boy from Nebraska say his preschool told them he must change the way he signs his name because it looks like a finger-pistol, but the school says the family has their signals crossed.

The family of pre-schooler Hunter Spanjer said officials at the Grand Island Public Schools told them the manner in which the boy signs his name is a violation of its “weapons in school” policy. The claim they were told Hunter had to modify the way he signs his moniker to comply with the school’s zero tolerance code against weapons in school.

“Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous,” Hunter’s grandmother, Janet Logue, told KGIN. “This is not threatening in any way.”

Brian Spanjer, the boy’s father, said the sign is a registered symbol with the Signing Exact English system. The encouragement and support his family has received since reports of the controversy have surfaced has been “amazing,” he said.

8-Year-Old Boy Suspended For ‘Pop-Tart Pistol’ Receives NRA Lifetime Membership (Audio)

8-Year-Old Boy Suspended For ‘Pop-Tart Pistol’ Receives NRA Lifetime Membership – Daily Caller

.

NRA lifetime membership usually costs around $550, but all 8-year-old Joshua Welch had to do was get suspended from school for wielding a cherry Pop-Tart.

Two months after Welch was suspended from Park Elementary School in Maryland for nibbling a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun, The National Riffle Association has granted the 7-year old boy a free lifetime membership.

The boy, then seven, was sent to the principal’s office where he was suspended from school for two days.

News of the boy’s suspension spread quickly.

“You’re doomed, America,” National Review’s Mark Steyn said on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show. “You’re done for.”

“No society can survive this level of stupidity,” Steyn said then. “The school counselor is available to meet with any students who are traumatized by hearing reports of some guy four grades below them who nibbles a Pop-Tart into a gun-like shape.”

Although the boy originally denied attempting to make his snack look like a weapon, he later admitted to CBS that the Pop-Tart did indeed look like a gun.

The elementary school student was granted the lifetime membership Wednesday night at an Anne Arundel County Republican Party political fundraiser.

After receiving the certificate, Welch reportedly returned to playing video games on his cell phone.

The Public School Nazis Are At It Again…

Boy, Not Making Bombs, Arrested For Having Things Cops Think Could Blow Up (And For Drawings That Spooked A Teacher) – Reason

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is publicizing an interesting little story out of Galloway Township in New Jersey:

When a 16-year-old New Jersey boy doodled in his notebook on Tuesday, December 18, he probably didn’t expect to be arrested by the end of the day. However, when school officials saw the sketches, which they state appeared to be of weapons, and the boy “demonstrated behavior that caused them to be concerned,” the police were called.

A subsequent search of the boy’s home led to his arrest because they found several electronic parts and chemicals. He was charged with the possession of an explosive device and put in juvenile detention.

The details on what was precisely in the drawings are sketchy, as are the details on the behavior that caused concern. The school claims the drawings were of weapons, but the boy’s mother told various press outlets that, “He drew a glove with flames coming out of it.” If true, then the drawing wouldn’t be out of place in the notebook of any teenager who loves comic books.

At no point in time did the boy threaten the school, school officials, or his classmates. He cooperated fully with authorities, and a search of the school itself found nothing dangerous…

Lest you think it is inherently suspicious a young man would have chemicals or electronic parts, note that his school is, according to a Press of Atlantic City account, “a magnet school with programs focusing on engineering and environmental sciences and specializing in hands-on learning.” And his mom told MyFoxPhilly.com that her son had a “passion for collecting old stuff, taking it apart and rebuilding things.”

Also of interest from that story, a school superintendent says he’s:

“thankful that we had a staff member that (saw something that) caused her some concern, and that she had the sense to report it to school officials. These are things that teachers receive training on all the time.”

Most interesting detail from that Press of Atlantic City story:

Police Chief Pat Moran stressed Tuesday night no threats were made by the student and there was no indication there was any danger posed to anyone or property at the school.

“There was no indication he was making a bomb, or using a bomb or detonating a bomb,” he said.

Sounds like a good collar to me, boys!
