Two seventh-grade boys in Virginia have been suspended from school for a year, for playing with an airsoft gun at home, outside of school hours. It is very important that the families sue the school district — anti-gun educrats can’t be allowed to think they can get away with this crap.

(Via Instapundit.)

UPDATE: There is an important detail that was not initially reported. The kids were not just shooting targets in their own yard with the airsoft gun; they were also shooting bystanders. That obviously changes the entire matter. It’s not a harmless behavior on private property; it’s simple assault.

I suppose the case could be made that school should not have taken action because the incident didn’t involve the school, but I don’t think I agree. In any case, the kids are much better off with it with it being a school matter than a criminal justice matter, which is the other alternative.
