For a non-obscene t-shirt? Come on, gimme a break!

So a teenager gets punished for wearing a t-shirt with just the IMAGE of a gun on it? What is this world coming to? When I was in school, most guys had a big Buck knife in a leather holster strapped to their belt. It was normal. Knives were seen as necessary tools, not weapons. School officials did not flip out. Sure, I got into trouble for wearing a t-shirt to school before, but in all honesty, it was obscene. This one, however, is not.

This quote in the article sums up the stupidity of political correctness.
an attorney for the school district said school must create a safe environment for students in the post-Columbine era, and bringing even the image of a gun to school violates the district's policy.
