Anti-gun hysteria in schools is definitely out of control. Florida HS student suspended for disarming potential shooter.

The hysteria practiced in our schools today over anything involving or even suggesting a gun has hit a new high point in a Florida high school. While some children as young as 5 or 6 years old have been suspended from school for pointing an index finger and saying "Bang" while playing "Cops and Robbers" or even for drawing a picture of a gun or anything that resembles a gun, suspending a student for stopping a shooting is totally asinine. It points out that some schools, and this one in particular, places a higher importance on avoiding a gun than on the importance of saving a life. Could these liberal educators be afraid that the act of saving a life would be misconstrued as promoting heroism since their only school safety policy involves running and hiding? Is it more important to a liberal educator to allow a shooting incident to happen to further the anti-gun cause? It illustrates the absurdity of Zero Tolerance and having Gun Free Zones in our schools. If saving the life of a high school student is not a heroic act worthy of commendation then how are schools going to protect the lives of the children when they punish someone for doing just that? The 16-year old student at Cypress Lake High in Fort Myers, Florida was suspended for three days after he disarmed another student who was pointing a loaded gun at someone on a school bus. The suspected gunman was arrested by the Lee County Sheriff's Dept. and charged with possession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, the report states. The student who disarmed the gunman was suspended for being involved in an "incident with a weapon".

As reported on The Blaze web site:
High School Student Disarms Gunman…Gets Suspended?
A Florida high school student wrestled a loaded gun away from another teen on the bus ride home this week and was slapped with a suspension in return.
The 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Fla. told WFTX-TV there was “no doubt” he saved a life after grappling for the loaded .22 caliber revolver being aimed point-blank at another student on Tuesday.
“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” said the suspended student, not identified by WFTX because of safety concerns. “Not taking no pity.”
The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was “pointing the gun directly” at the other student and “threatening to shoot him.”
That’s when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.
“How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?” he asked.
The school’s referral slip said he was given an “emergency suspension” for being involved in an “incident” with a weapon. Lee County School District spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said in a statement that “If there is a potentially dangerous situation, Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing.”
Perhaps the school officials would prefer to remove the word "gun" from all of the books they use including the dictionaries. Perhaps they might consider suspending students from using derivatives of the word "gun" in conversations. Consider a student describing his new car to a friend telling him how he felt when he "gunned" the engine. School officials have been teaching a rewritten version of American History for years where the Colonial Patriots in the American Revolution are described as terrorists. How better to confuse the young minds to the actual terrorists today. Liberal educators are predominantly Democrats and show great bias toward any form of patriotism. Especially the use of guns to secure our freedom.

In Texas, a first hand account of how liberal educators are rewriting history. 


An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.

Students at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide – instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”

John Valastro, the superintendent of the Lumberton Independent School District, tells me that the teacher did absolutely nothing wrong.
Madelyn LeBlanc told me that it was clear her teacher was very uncomfortable lecturing the students.
LeBlanc said the students were told that they could no longer use the terms suicide bomber or terrorist. Instead, they were instructed to use the words “freedom fighters.”

“This teacher taught her that a freedom fighter is when they give their life for the Holy War – and that they’re going to go to heaven,” she said. “They were saturating these kids in Islam and my daughter is an American Christian child.”

And then came the comparison between the 9-11 hijackers and the freedom fighters.

Madelyn said a young man sitting beside her was stunned.

“He was shocked that we had to call them that,” she told Fox News. “He laughed and asked the teacher, ‘Is that a joke? Are you serious? Why do we have to call them that? That makes it sound okay (what they did) And it’s not.’”

Madelyn said the teacher didn’t know how to respond.

She said it was something we have to learn for the end of the year testing,” she said. “I’m sure it was very difficult for her to do.”
