Another "Zero Tolerance" Stupidity.

There is real Zero-Tolerance
for common sense in schools
Will They Ban the Seal of the United States because it has arrows on it???

Christan Morales says her son just wanted to honor American troops when he made a hat decorated with an American flag and small plastic Army figures. (They are little plastic toys Mr.Principal. Are you that dense???)

But the hat ran afoul of the district's no-weapons policy because the toy soldiers were carrying tiny weapons.

"His teacher called and said it wasn't appropriate because it had guns," Morales said.................

Superintendent Kenneth R. Di Pietro said the principal told the family that the hat would be fine if David replaced the Army men holding weapons with ones that didn't have any.

"The issue for us was, can it be done in a way that didn't violate the zero-tolerance for weapons?" he said. "Nothing was being done to limit patriotism, creativity, other than find an alternative to a weapon."

Will they outlaw the Bill of Rights?
It mentions guns and soldiers in the 2nd and 3rd Amendments.
