Colorado Student Banned From School For Going Shooting With His Mom
This morning Justine woke up to a voicemail from Thompson Valley School District where Nate is a junior at Loveland High School in Loveland, CO. The voicemail informed Justine that a report had come in claiming Nate was a threat to the school and he was not allowed to return until further notice. The report presumably came through Safe 2 Tell. There are reports that a school wide email was also sent to parents about the “threat”. Justine immediately contacted the school assuming she could easily clear things up, especially since the police had already assessed the situation and realized no one had done anything wrong or made any threats. She was wrong. The school not only refused to provide her with more information about the “threat”, but they refused to provide Nate with schoolwork so he doesn’t get behind. A “threat assessment hearing” has been scheduled for Thursday morning at 10am at the school admin building where Justine will be allowed to defend her son against SEVEN school officials who will be in attendance to, as she was told, “make their case”. Make their case of what? That Nate’s outing with his mother to train with her firearms somehow makes him a danger to the school?

What if he had expressed a desire when he's an adult to become a police officer or join the Army? Would they worry about his "obsession with guns and violence"?

Yup



No Doubt he'd be suffering from PRE Traumatic Stress Disorder, and a Red Flag Confiscation Order would be issued.

The school apparently never heard they couldn't use "Indians" as their sports teams anymore. Sign in the background. Probably noticed because I'm POed we had to change from Indians to Raiders or lose government funding - just more BS. BTW at that time I was playing poker with a lot of reservation guys at Jackpot that I would also run into in LA$ VEGA$ and every one of a dozen said they would be proud to have a school name their sports teams Indians.

The left has a severe case of white guilt that far exceeds any rational reason. All it takes is some small faction to raise a ruckus and the "we have to do something " crowd overreacts and goes overboard.

Kinda like last year when the Ramsey county sheriff wet his pants because he thought he found a machine gun. Turned out he was an idiot.

Talked to a woman at work who thought all 'assault guns' were 'automatic machine guns'. I educated her but the misinformation runs deep.

That story just bubbled up in the news again in some sort of an attempt by the Strib to do some sort of story about the ATF, and gun confiscations:

ATF reports record year for gun seizures in Minnesota, including more fully automatic weapons - The recent mass shootings have renewed scrutiny of semiautomatic military-style rifles


The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office was partly responsible for last year’s surge in gun traces: Deputies recovered a cache of dozens of firearms, ammunition and explosives from the home of a boy threatening to shoot up his school shortly after the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting that claimed 17 lives.

(Nowhere is it mentioned that there was nothing illegal found. I recall, everything was returned to the homeowner, and the sheriff is no longer sheriff.)

What is actually informative is the paragraph that appears just before the above quoted paragraph:

But while the recent mass shootings renewed scrutiny of semiautomatic military-style rifles, more than half of all the guns seized in Minnesota last year were pistols, according to the ATF. “Almost all the shootings we have had in Ramsey and Hennepin Counties are handgun-related, and an enormous percentage of cases where a gun was used in a crime, it’s a handgun,” said Roy Magnuson, a spokesman for the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office. “They are the tool of choice.”

They want them all banned, they are just going after the low hanging fruit at the moment.

I was thinking about possible responses to this sort of crap.

Suppose kid with a gun owning parent in the school went out shooting with his or her parent, took a picture, and posted the picture to the currently popular social media site, in support of Nate and his mother.

Then make sure that they're all flagged as "threats".

If half the kids in the school were suspended "pending investigation" they might decide they need to address their process.

They would just suspend all the involved kids then complain to the government that they are not receiving enough funds.
