Signing Exact English (Set) to school " ciaos. (. earn)
communicate and signs his name
by crossing his [nalex finger and mkettle finger and then wagging his
hands.
Drawing upon a policy that forbids "any instrument that looks like a
weapon," Grand Island Public School board officials say that Hunter' s
name looks too much like a gun gesture to be used in school.
It' s a symbol. It' s an actual sign, a registered sign, through Set," said

and his name sign, they say, is a violation of their weapons policy"

I want to go visit this school, not to protest with everyone else, they all have that taken care of.
But I want to see a kid during recess playing cowboys and indians with his friends make a gun gesture with his hands, and then get drop kicked in the face out of fucking no where by a grown man in riot gear, maced while unconscious, and dragged away in a police cruiser to undergo psychiatric evaluation and interrogation to figure out the motive behind the murder plot he was were suggesting on the playground.

"When asked why he made a gun threat toward Abdul on the playground, 6 year old Michael responded through tears, 'is c-cause we were playin' and he w-wa-was a indians'. Leading investigators to suspect a racial motivation, and dispatch officers to search Abdul's home for evidence of terrorism as a precaution. More details soon."

At my elementary school we couldn't high five because it shows violence and we could miss and hit each other in the face....

America, where you can own a gun, but can't imitate a gun with your hands

Guys don't say "fun" at school. It sounds too much like "gun," so the school's armed guards will have to shoot you.

Wow nice one you fucking morons. As if that child isn't deprived enough, you want to get a deaf kid to change his name, because when he tries to tell people his name he has to make out a gun with his hands... OHH SHIT HIS HANDS ARE SHAPED LIKE A GUN! He is suddenly a health and safety threat. Sincerely to those fucking nitwits that made this decision: Go shove your fucking retarded policy up your ass and I hope you get hit by lightening. Ohh and i'm extremely butthurt because I have a friend who is deaf and can't speak.

Apparently regulations and rules allow people to defy common fucking sense.

Schools are way too uptight about guns. You so much as whisper "gun" and a fucking SWAT team bursts through the windows.

It shouldn't matter what the kid's name looks like, it's his name.

I hope the school gets the shit sued out of them, but I also hope for some more satisfactory, 4chan style justice.

Welcome to America
Where getting a gun is easier than jerking off, but if you make a gesture that looks even REMOTELY like a finger gun, God help you. If my rage could be converted to electricity, it could make a light bulb glow so bright that even the deepest corners of sunken R'lyeh would look like a goddamn rave
