    Exclamation Ionia kindergartner suspended for making gun with hand

    IONIA -- To the little boy's mother, it was just a 6-year-old boy playing around.

    But when Mason Jammer, a kindergarten student at Jefferson Elementary in Ionia, curled his fist into the shape of a gun Wednesday and pointed it at another student, school officials said it was no laughing matter.

    They suspended Mason until Friday, saying the behavior made other students uncomfortable, said Erin Jammer, Mason's mother.

    School officials allege Mason had displayed this kind of behavior for several months, despite numerous warnings.

    "I do think it's too harsh for a six-year-old," said Jammer, who was previously warned that if Mason continued the practice he would be suspended. "He's six and he just likes to play."

    Jammer says her son isn't violent, and there are other, more effective ways of teaching him not to make a gun with his hand.

    "Maybe what you could do is take his recess away," suggested Jammer, adding her son doesn't have toy guns at home.

    "He's only six and he doesn't understand any of this."

    Schools in general are really starting to upset me. Who do they think they are sometimes?? A few years back when my youngest daughter was in 6th grade she wore my "Glock Shooting Sports" hat for a scheduled "hat day" the school had one Friday. She was told she couldn’t wear it and they made her take it off. I had to pick the hat up from the teacher after school that day. Grrrrrr!!!

    It was just a hat. It didn’t even have a picture of a gun on it. Just the wording, "Glock Shooting Sports" on the front…….

    The liberal sheep never stop amazing me with their stupidity.

    Gone definitely are the days of guns in your gun racks, and "Deer Days" off of school during hunting season when you cant even make a gun shape with your hand! And six years old to boot... I know when my kids were six they wouldn't even understand what is happening to them. They would have been ecstatic to have a few extra days off of school.

    Either way this is not teaching children anything, it is more about sending an anti-gun or "zero-tolerance" statement. Teachers these days aren't very creative.

    Here folks is the problem!

    I read these boards and I see Obama did this, or Congress did that and all the bull crap expelled about it, but other than write a few letters and vote every four years there is REALLY very little you can do about it.

    BUT YOU CAN CHANGE THINGS!!! By becoming active at the LOCAL level. Nearly every school in the country is run by a SCHOOL BOARD and YOU elect those people. Decisions on HOW OUR CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT are not made by Obama or Congress, they are made by your school board and YOU can control them because when election comes down to a few hundred votes instead of a few hundred thousand YOUR VOTE REALLY COUNTS!

    County commissions (or whatever they are called in your area) are also great local targets. It is the county commission that influences the state legislators and it is the state legislatures that influence congress and it is congress that actually controls what the almighty administration does.

    POWER is supposed to FLOW UPWARD in this county.

    Stop just posting carp on bulletin boards about how much you hate Obama and how our country is falling apart ... TAKE IT BACK!

    Get active locally and VOTE THE BASTARDS OUT!

    Rant Off ...

    I am guessing this was a public school. They have all gone certifiably insane. My first suggestion if at all possible would be take the kid out of the asylum and home school him. The public school system is only going to get worse.

    +1. No way would I let a "gov't school" get their hands on my kids these days. I don't wish to insult anyone whose kids are in public schools but you must know what you are up against (no God, political correctness, indoctrination). If/when I become a grandparent, I will assist my kids in keeping their kids out of the reach of these freakin' lunatics.

    JJ I would also add that I am in no way saying that there are not some good teachers in the school system. I have known a number of very conservative, Christian teachers, a number of whom have gone to my church. The problem is that there are also a lot of teachers that have attended liberal colleges and are brainwashed by the liberal socialistic system. Add to that the fact that the NEA has so much control over the public education system and the teachers it is next to impossible for the good teachers to be able to make much of a difference. The public education system has become and indoctrination tool for the Marxist, NWO elite.

    ... The schools do not teach....
    Michigan Schools are some of the worse in the country. Detroit ...FEWER than 25% of the freshman go on to graduate. ('07)
    Dismal Drop-Out Rates for Detroit Schools
    Over 50% of the inmates in Michigan jails are high school drop-outs. And it costs the state over $29,000 a year just to house them. 40% of parents on public assistance in the state are also drop-outs of Detroit Schools (or other schools).
    Test Scores for Detroit Public Schools | GreatSchools

    As / Great Schools, The state adverage scores for Mich is 77%. Poor at best, Yet Detroit, A Democratic Strong hold, is 47% (Dependeing in grade level) AND Half of these kids can not read.
