Boy Fires Pretend Bow

You'll often hear people say, "It's political correctness gone mad!" And I often correct them and say, "The correct term is political correctness gone differently sane." Either way this could be a good example of that.

A ten-year-old boy has reportedly been suspended from school after he "fired" an imaginary bow and arrow at another pupil.

A lot of people have said this is outrageous but this is the kind of thing that can lead to imaginary gun violence and that's at epidemic proportions these days. It's a serious issue for me because, as a child, I lost my imaginary friend to imaginary gun violence. It was horrible. He left behind a wife and kids. Hmm, I had issues.

And if we come down hard on people pretending to have weapons we can stamp out those middle-aged men who point at you with index finger out and thumb up and make that clicking noise.

The fictionally violent kid was Johnny Jones, a fifth grader at South Eastern Middle School in Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania. So that's America, a country where you can buy guns in supermarkets, and you get suspended for pretending to shoot a bow and arrow. That second amendment says you can bear arms not pretend to. In fact, there was a story in the news recently about one state defending the right of blind people to buy guns. If they pick up the wrong thing and pretend that banana they're holding is a gun, they'd be in trouble too.

He was reprimanded after the girl he "fired" the bow at notified a teacher. In his defence, the pretend apple he was aiming for on her head got splattered.

The human rights organisation The Rutherford Institute, which is defending the child, has requested the suspension be removed and no further action be taken.

I'm not sure about totally letting him off. I think he should be flogged, with an imaginary cane. See how he likes it.
