A 16-year-old Florida high school student says he was suspended for three days for wrestling a loaded gun away from a 15 year old threatening to shoot another student.
According to the referral the student received the following day, he was suspended for his role in an "incident" where a weapon was present and given an "emergency suspension".

It just goes to show how twisted and backwards is the thinking of the leftist in this country. Any time a leftist (liberal democrat) gets an ounce of power and authority in a school or any other government organization, then this sort of wrong headed and ridiculous stuff will result.

Knee jerk reaction is a predictable part of being a liberal democrat.

Reminds me of the recent incident where an 11 year old girl was able to defend herself from a couple of armed invaders. One of them had a pistol on him and was wanted for a murder in another home invasion. : Home Invasion Thwarted by 11-Year-Old Girl Home Politics Crime

But, of course, the leftist news media absolutely refuses under any circumstances to talk about that story, or any other news item, that dont go along with Obama and the leftist dems latest illegal attacks on our constitutional freedoms.

Why havent we seen this OP story all over the media? The news media just isnt going to report the truth these days.

That would be going against the leftist democrats (and the leftist news medias propaganda) attempts to disarm the nations law abiding citizens.

And Obama, the dems in Congress, and the leftist news media (all the same political group, BTW) will not risk their brainwashing attempts on our low-information voters (dullards) that gulp down the leftist news medias ridiculous (and predictably repetitive)hype and spin.

In other words, we are getting the continuing mushroom treatment from the leftist news media. Too bad there are no reporters left anymore. Now, the media is just participants. There is no unbiased and credible media in this country anymore.

And lots of stories that would have the power to educate the dullards of the nation towards clear thinking is being suppressed by the leftist media.

Of course, that is how leftist get elected, when enough dullards get brainwashed with leftist soundbites, and the truth gets suppressed.

Stories just like this one should be covered, but they will not be.

Of course, just by us exposing the rotteness of the leftist news media, the leftist attack dogs of the internet are sure to come quickly and attack us for telling the truth.

Shows what a stupid world we're living in today. Same as when the boy was fired from his Hardware job for defending his co-workers from someone who had a gun on them because he used a gun he had in his car.

I applaud them both!

Nowadays they want to ban something that the law abiding citizens need to protect themselves with.

And at the same time, the Obama administration has released hundreds or thousands of illegal prisoners from jails because of the "sequester".

Hmm...take away guns from the law abiding citizens and fill the streets with criminals released from jails?

And that is Obamas and the democrats ideas of how to do something about crime?

That sounds about right.

Too bad the news media wont cover it honestly.

How true!

And you know, the brazen hypocrisy and dishonesty of the Obama administration (and his pet news media lackeys) is far beyond the pale of any administration in our nations history. I think he is even worse than Nixon.

Case in point:

Just a month ago, Obama and co.arranged to have a bunch of kids on a stage with him as he issued imperial edicts into law regarding gun laws aimed at law abiding citizens. He said that he was doing these "kinglike" measures because we have to do something to protect our kids.

And the bleeding heart leftist in the media beat the horse to death with hour after hour of hand wringing, emotionalism, and knee jerk reaction which spouted the gun control propaganda for hour after hour, day after day, week after week, and now month after month.

All under the false flag of "protecting the children".

And just this last week, the Obama administration released thousands of illegal prisoners (without any due process hearings in a court, BTW) just because they wanted to do a little grand standing by scaring the dullards of the land (liberal democrat supporters) into heaping more blame on the Republicans over the Sequester mess. He did it just as his never ending fear mongering.

Think about that!

Thousands of prisoners released by the administration, and now they are let loose to prey upon the defenseless children.

Wasnt this the administration of Obama who had a dog and pony show on TV just a month ago, with a bunch of kids around him as he signed his edicts (without Congressional approval)?

And now, he is turning loose thousands of criminals loose, and dumping them on the children of the land? Just to do some political grand standing!

Where is the hand wringing news media that will not cover his hypocrisy? Why dont they cover this? Why dont they hold Obama accountable for the things that his administration does?

And, why should us law abiding citizens have to give up our constitutional freedoms in the so-called interest of "keeping the children safe", while the Obama administration dumps thousands of criminals on the children to prey upon them?

And the sad thing is that I still hear idiots going around spouting the stupid slogan "Obama is for the poor people".

How blind and dumb can a person get?

Its sad that we have so many idiots in the nation that actually support this president, isnt it? Its rather embarrassing.

If I was him, I would be proud of my suspension and enjoy the time off. Get an official document of the suspension, tape it to his shirt and wear it like a medal. Sometimes we have to ignore the stupid liberal BS, just do what is right and be proud of it.
