Truth truly is stranger than fiction.
Sen. J. B. Jennings, a Republican who represents Baltimore Harford Counties, introduced “The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013″ on Thursday, reports The Star Democrat.
Can you imagine? The citizens of Maryland have the honor and privilege of paying for this type of legislation to be established to “curb the zeal of public school officials who are tempted to suspend students as young as kindergarten for having things — or talking about things, or eating things — that represent guns, but aren’t actually anything like real guns.” (emphasis mine).
Under the pending legislation, school officials who fail to distinguish between guns and things that look like guns would engage in mandatory counseling and face discipline themselves, rather than pollute student’s records with frivolous disciplinary charges of “terroristic threats” for speaking of Hello Kitty Bubble Guns.
Apparently, there is at least a small faction of American legislators remaining who retain their prefrontal cortex.
