A five year old girl in North Carolina was recently suspended from school for pretending a stick was a gun. The left is in such a panic over guns that many schools now have a “zero tolerance” policy which means pretty much anything can get you in trouble no matter how crazy it sounds.

School suspends 5-year-old girl for ‘turning a stick into a gun’
Officials at a North Carolina school suspended a kindergarten student for playing with a “stick gun” on the playground.
Caitlin Miller, who is 5 years old, was playing a game of “King and Queen” with two of her classmates Friday at J.W. McLaughlin Elementary School in Raeford, North Carolina. The little girl was pretending to be a guard trying to keep out intruders from entering the kingdom where the king and queen were when she spotted a stick in the shape of a gun, picked it up, and imitated firing the “weapon,” WTVD-TV reported.
The girl’s mother, Brandy Miller, later received a call from the school principal, saying her daughter had posed a “threat” to other students.
In a statement to WTVD, the school cited its “zero tolerance” policy for such behavior:
Hoke County Schools will not tolerate assaults, threats or harassment from any student. Any student engaging in such behavior will be removed from the classroom or school environment for as long as is necessary to provide a safe and orderly environment for learning.
