When you see stories about school students being suspended for drawing gun pictures, eating their pastries into gun shapes, forming their fingers into guns, carrying toy gun key chains, shooting airsoft guns in their own yards, showing off bubble guns or having a piece of paper with a corner torn off that an “educator” believes looks like a gun, the knee-jerk reaction is to think school administrators are just being ridiculous.
But the truth is much more insidious. It is part of the ongoing assault on gun ownership.
What better way to advance an anti-gun agenda than by inculcating into impressionable brains that guns in any form — even in pictures or shapes — are evil?
The suspensions don’t just affect the students being punished. They make serious imprints into the psyches of all the students in the school.
Gun grabbers are working in many ways to demonize gun owners and guns in an effort to gradually, surreptitiously change the public perception about gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment. Remember that statists use gradualism to achieve their aims. They are patient and indefatigable.
Liberty lovers must be as well.
