Hysteria

Since Newtown, we have seen an alarming pattern of schools punishing students (severely in some cases) for possessing objects that aren’t guns, but are vaguely reminiscent of guns: fingers, a Hello Kitty bubble gun, a vaguely gun-shaped scrap of paper, a transparent plastic toy gun, a photograph of a gun, an imaginary hand grenade, or a partially eaten breakfast pastry in the shape of a gun.

This is hysteria, plain and simple. No one this out-of-touch with reality should be running a school.
