In the wake of the Aurora and Newtown shootings, anti-gun hysteria swept the nation—particularly in schools. Although a heightened sensitivity toward weapons is certainly understandable, the majority of instances were downright ridiculous. Remember the Colorado boy who faced suspension because he tossed an imaginary grenade (saving the world from evil forces, obviously)? Or the Michigan school that confiscated cupcakes that were decorated with toy soldier figurines because they had guns? And what about that 7-year-old boy from Maryland who was suspended for two days because he bit a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun? Well, as for the latter, he’s been given a Junior Life Membership in the NRA.
