But not “drawing” in the sense of pulling a gun out of a holster, rather drawing as in “drawing a stick figure holding a gun“.
Kyle gave the picture to another child on the school bus, and that child’s parents complained about it to school officials, McDevitt said. Her son told her the drawing was of a water gun, she said.
This is the kind of idiocy that “zero-tolerance” policies generates. A kid drew a picture of himself, shooting a water gun at another kid (SHOCK), and was suspended for it? That just doesn’t make sense to me. Although on the bright side, if you can call it that, at least this 2nd grader wasn’t handcuffed and arrested. Although I have to say, we’re in a pretty sorry position when that’s the bright side.
