Why I would never send my kids to public school: A 10-year-old is suspended for pointing “a level 2 lookalike firearm,” which happened to be his finger.

I don’t know which is stupider, suspending him for going “bang-bang” with his hand, or the school calling his hand “a level 2 lookalike firearm.”
