breaking news:Boys hand is pop tart.

School says deaf
boy' s name sign
looks too much like
agun
Brace yourselves, because this is the dumbest thing you' ll hear all day- The Grand Island (Nets)
school district is forcing a deaf boy to change the way he signs his name, because they
say his gestures violate their weapons policy. Preschooler Hunter Spanker' s personalized name sign
is a registered sign with Signing Exact English - a form unamerican Sign Language- and
involves extended index fingers that the district says resembles a gun- (And that sound you just
heard was our heads exploding from all the stupid) "We are wodering with the parents to come to the
best solution we can tor the child." a school spokesperson said Urn, how about letting him Keep his
own name?

This happened like a year ago and the kid didn't have to change the way he signs his name.

You can own a freakin assault rifle but you can't point your finger even when it's your name in sign language. America, we are going down. the downward spiral of a great nation. NSA & NRA hoorah!

To be fair you have to go through the whole NFA stuff to own an actual assault rifle

You have to go through the whole birthing process for a name.

That country has some Grade A* paranoia on its hands.

The NFA **** is for automatics and "weapons that can easily be concealed due to short length"
At least that's my understanding of it, I live in Canada

I mean, the safety of children is important, as is the safety of everyone, but this is like taking context away from the children, ripping it up, burying it, and packing the kids in cotton.

Well, you're right. That's something like we have here in FJ. Out of sight out of mind. It will get fixed on it's own.
User avatar #9 to #8 - rikter (01/15/2014) [-]
Or if not fixed, at least it won't get more broken. Probably. Maybe. I'm sure...ish.

Actually the problem will only get worse the more it's ignored. Just like we have here in Finland. We are still wondering whether we should join NATO and there's some raging debate over that and the government still ignores the question. it's been going on for like 6-10 years. This gun-banning is similar kind of problem.
User avatar #11 to #10 - rikter (01/15/2014) [-]
We are both from Finland. This is awkward. But yeah the pussyfooting around the NATO issue is ******* ridiculous. As is the fact back and forth with EU. It's like ******* Gollum with the ring. "We likes them, we likes them, they will bring new prosperity." "We hates them, we hates them, they are going to ruin everything with the debt crisis."

Sitten ymmärrät mistä puhun. Tää hiukan jakautunu tän kysymyksen takia ja se ongelma vaan pahenee mitä enemmän odotetaan. Pitäis jo alkaa päättää, että ryhdytäänkö neutraaliks niinku Ruotsi ja Sveitsi vai liitytäänkö Norjan, Saksan, Ranskan ja USA:n kanssa NATOon. Se tois paljon mahdollisuuksia, mutta sitten pitäs kalustoa uusia ja niin edespäin ja toi venäjän ja meidän suhde on vakaa. Ensin se komentaja sanoo, että jos Suomi liittyy NATO:on, Venäjä hyökkää ja sitten se erotetaan joten sen argumentti on invalidi ja Putin tulee vastaan sanomaan, että Suomi saakin itse päättää.

Continuing in English as per the rules of the site Well, our's is a very Russophobic nation that clings to past glory. I really think that we would be able to go with the neutral stance, but that would require politicians, and politics, that are not so afraid of what Russia might do, and not so positive towards the US. We could have the unique position of a bridge between Russia and the US, and on the larger scale, as a mediator in general. Of course this might just be wishful thinking.

Well, we've been "friends" with Russia so long that i wasn't even born back then. Actually , we just used Russia to get to this position that we are in now. I think they should not be afraid like people used to be in cold war. Then again, if we join the NATO, Russia loses a valuable "partner" and in the cold war we were something like a bridge for Russia to access to the west. The USA might not like us like it didn't in the cold war, because of what we did in the cold war, but that's history. I think we should join the NATO, it would make some changes in here and i'm interested to see those changes.
