And the crackpot constitutionalist extremists have the temerity to keep fearmongering about the government looking for ways to disarm you? Posh!
A New York father has had his firearms all but confiscated after the Suffolk County Pistol License Bureau suspended his pistol license indefinitely over a perceived threat made by his 10-year-old son and two of his classmates at school.
John Mayer, of Commack, N.Y., told TheBlaze that the incident occurred on March 1. It was like any other day, the father explained. He put his son on the bus and sent him off to school.
Later that day, Mayer got a call from school officials informing him that his 10-year-old son and two other students were talking about going to a boys house with a water gun, paint gun and a BB gun. There had reportedly been a school yard pushing incident the day before involving the boys, excluding Mayers son, and they were seemingly talking about getting even in some way.
Mayer told TheBlaze that a teacher overheard the students talking and immediately called police and filed a report. He said the teacher told police something to the effect of, theres a kid with a gun, ready to go. [...]
School officials then interrogated the boys, Mayer explained. It was later determined that the 10-year-old boys did not have access to a BB gun, paintball gun or any actual firearms.
The schools principal later informed the father that his son would be suspended for two days for the incident. But the ordeal was far from over.
Mayer said police officers were then deployed to his home where he was advised by officers that they might have to confiscate his firearms, which he says were all properly stored and secured. I just couldnt believe what was happening,(continued)

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Schools have been overreacting for many years. About ten years ago, a friend’s teenage son accidentally left a pocket knife in his jeans from the weekend family fishing trip and put those jeans on to wear to school the following week. During school he notices bulge in pocket, says what’s this and takes out closed penknife. Totally innocent but two female classmates run to teacher with news he has a weapon. Cops are called, parent is pulled out of work to get kid from police station, kid suspended from school and cops have him doing 500 hours of washing their cop cars.
It might have been 100 hours of washing cars. The kid had a weekly schedule and it went on for many weeks and I remember at the time thinking it was excessive punishment.
Fking Bull Shiite.
You shouldn’t need a license to own a gun and the cops shouldn’t be allowed to take your property on a hunch or mere hearsay.
Like Sag Harbor?
I think that may be in nearer to NYC Nassau County.
Public schools are communist indoctrination centers, pedophile magnets, generally abusive of children and free fire zones for psychopaths. But they do have great programs for keeping vegetables STD-free.
NO! Leave them there. When they move they take their attitudes with them. I see in in Florida and see it in Georgia. Yankee liberals leave the sh!holes like NY, NA, NJ, etc. because of the high taxes and lack of jobs. The first thing those arrogant ignoranuses do is look around them and think "Look at how poorly organized these people are. They don't have gun registration. They don't have welfare outreach. They don't have green space laws. They don't pay teachers enough. etc."
Having previously sh!t where they ate and befouled their own nests to the extent that they have to move, the first thing they do is try to make their new home exactly like the old one. They vote for Democrats because Republicans are "not compassionate." They are agast at the lack of laws controlling every aspect of their lives. In short they hate loath and fear freedom and do their best to remove it from themselves and the rest of us too. New York is the least free state for a reason and that reason is New Yorkers. They like it that way.
I think that is no longer possible with the internet
but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people
Solzhenitsyn understood. I'm not sure very many citizens in the USSA today understand. The police and the rest of the government understand. THAT is why they want gun control. gun registration. etc. They want to remove our means to resist. If you don't have the means, then having the will to resist is meaningless.
“People that send their kids to public schools in all but the most fearsomely conservative/liberty minded areas are idiots...”
Why the exception? Here in Texas, we found 80% of our schools are now using CSCOPE, practically overnight. If you know what CSCOPE is, that would scare the hell out of you. And, at 80% in TEXAS, they’ve penetrated DEEP into the most conservative areas of the state.
...and it is no surprise to us Thomas Sowell disciples. He’s explained, clearly, that the people in our public schools (i.e., every last one of them), all have the same background, which are university “Schools of Education” that are designed to assure total left-wing control...even in the reddest of areas.
“Father and family moves to Plano, Texas. Everyone happy again.”
I’d recommend some SERIOUS background research on whoever runs and teaches at the schools in Plano (you won’t like the results)...see my prior post.
People have lost their minds!
LOL. You might be a neighbor of mine.
