|Children, if you touch one of these, you|
will turn into a criminal!
This sort of stupidity isn't surprising to me, and it probably isn't to any either millennial or younger X'er. I remember when my school banned games like red rover because they were 'too violent'. I remember when teachers were actively trying to get boys to play with barbies and girls with trucks, as the saying goes. I remember when our school our school banned neon ray gun style water guns due to a 'no tolerance' policy. I also remember using sticks as swords and guns and pine cones as grenades. But hey, these programs are to keep the children safe right?
This 'gun' buy back program only accomplishes one thing and one thing alone. It shows us that in the political ghetto of California, administrators will waste time with things other than actually educating the children.
