First gun control, now finger control

A school in Silver Spring, Maryland has suspended a six-year old boy for pointing his finger at another student and saying “pow.” The school characterized first student’s behavior as a threat to shoot the second student.

The suspension made me wonder whether Barack Obama should have been disciplined for writing a note, during lengthy remarks by Joe Biden, that said: “SHOOT. ME. NOW.”
