Girl Scolded For Bringing Paper Gun to School
"A Philadelphia woman said her daughter's elementary school overreacted when the girl was searched and scolded for possessing a paper gun.
Dianna Kelly said her daughter, fifth-grader Melody Valentin, was reprimanded by a school administrator at Newlin Fell Elementary School and had her belongings searched last week when she pulled out a paper gun her grandfather had made, WTXF-TV, Philadelphia, reported Wednesday."Was the little terrorist's backpack searched for a paper magazine capable of holding 30 paper bullets?
Thank goodness the school administrator confiscated the girl's paper gun, and nipped her criminal career in the bud. We all know that the natural progression is for a child to play with a paper or toy gun, and then in a few years graduate to massacring his fellow students with an assault rifle.
Let's just pray and hope that one of Melody's classmates doesn't have a paper bomb in his backpack.
President Obama should dispatch Joe Biden to this elementary school so he can personally present the brave and dedicated school administrator with a Medal of Honor.
Parents all over this great nation can sleep peacefully knowing that there are courageous school administrators keeping our children safe.
