Autistic Student Plays With “Imaginary Rifle” at School, Their Response has Parents Furious

Where do schools draw the line?

An autistic fifth grade student at Conroe Independent School District in Texas was arrested and hauled away after pointing an “imaginary rifle” at his art teacher.

Apparently, the teacher felt this was a legitimate threat and immediately reported the incident to the authorities.

The student, David Sims, said, “She (CISD Police Officer) just put handcuffs on me and told me I need to go with her.”

“They just said, ‘We don’t tolerate that. We take it as a threat.’ A threat? He didn’t threaten anyone. He didn’t do anything but play,” said Amy Sims, David’s mother.

Amy Sims says she wasn’t notified of the classroom incident until after her son was in custody. Like many students challenged with autism, Amy says her son simply didn’t understand “make believe” gunplay on campus has become inappropriate behavior.

“Being put in handcuffs, not knowing what he did wrong, I could have had a talk with him and told him look, I know you like to play guns, but you can’t do it in school,” said Amy Sims.

David spent two hours and eleven minutes at the Juvenile Detention Center. Montgomery County Attorney J.D. Lambright says given his age and disability it’s likely criminal charges can be avoided.

Lambright went on to say that Sims’ rifle incident was preceded by an actual threat of physical violence and that this wasn’t the first time an incident like this has happened.

Amy Sims believes the school is discriminating against her son because of his mental disability, assuming that since he has issues, that makes him more susceptible to extreme acts of violence, like a mass shooting.

Conroe ISD has informed the Sims family they must send their son to an alternative disciplinary school for the rest of the Spring semester.

So where exactly do schools these days draw the line? Are kids still allowed to play “cops and robbers” on the playground? An imaginary gun is not equivalent to the real deal. It’s unbelievable that such a statement needs to be made, but welcome to the 21st century.

Two Men Break Into Texas Man’s Home Before Dawn. It’s A Huge Mistake And You Already Know Why.

God bless Texas.

A homeowner in Nacogdoches, Texas was forced to defend his home from intruders, one of whom was carrying a pistol. As you can probably imagine, with this story having unfolded in Texas, these two punks learned you don’t mess with a man’s home, especially in the Lone Star state. This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why we have the Second Amendment and why we need to fight hard against the liberals who want to strip us of our right to bear arms. Gun control laws don’t stop bad guys from getting guns. They just create more victims of violence instead. Here’s more from TheBlaze: After the single shot, both men apparently no longer felt welcome and bolted from the home, KYTX noted. Officers responded to the home invasion report just after 5:30 a.m. β€” and later responded to a nearby hospital regarding an individual suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm, the station said. Turns out the patient was the alleged intruder the homeowner shot, KTYX reported. Laquintin Lockhart, 30, was then arrested at the hospital on Monday afternoon. He’s been charged with aggravated robbery according to local law enforcement. Police went on to say the second suspect is still on the loose, though the department is continuing to investigate. Guns are nothing more than tools, which means they are incapable of committing acts of right and wrong. What matters is whose hands these tools are in, and unfortunately, gun control laws only serve to harm law-abiding citizens, a simple fact the left just refuses to acknowledge. Without the Second Amendment guaranteeing that the God-given right to own a firearm for the protection of life, liberty, and property, this man would’ve been victimized and possibly deprived of his most precious gift. It’s not fair to leave folks like him…

AOC’s Constituents Get Rude Awakening When Trying To Contact Her Office By Phone

So much for being the “future of the Democratic Party,” huh?

Published

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps adding more and more reasons to the list for why she should never, ever be re-elected to the congressional seat she currently holds, which should be alarming to her, but she seems to be so out of touch with reality she doesn’t even know it’s happening. Her latest goof up has to do with the fact that she’s now become the least accessible representative in New York City, with the NY and D.C. offices now using filtering systems to prevent callers from speaking with an actual, real life human being. This is not how you win elections, AOC. From TheBlaze: The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone β€” except Ocasio-Cortez’s offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents. “She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” the aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it’s all shameful.” Calls to the Washington, D.C., office are filtered. Only callers with D.C. or New York City area codes have a chance at getting through; other callers are given an automated message that directs them to Ocasio-Cortez’s website. Calls to her district office in Jackson Heights give constituents the option to press 2, and directs other callers to visit the website or send an email. Pressing 2 does not route the call to an aide or receptionist, however, it simply allows the caller to leave a message. So…
