Student Builds Gun Out of Legos, Points it at Other Students, School Freaks Out

This is really getting ridiculous now.

Thanks to the left’s constant fear mongering over guns, we’ve reached a fever pitch in paranoia, so much so that if a kid even dares to mention the “g word” in school he could end up not only suspended, but dragged away in handcuffs.

You might think this is an exaggeration, but we’ve seen an uptick recently in schools overreacting to the fear of a possible school shooting, the most recent example of which comes to us from Connecticut.

A student at Jepsen Magnet School in New Haven made a toy gun from Legos, pointed it at other classmates, and as you might expect, officials completely lost it.

Police were called to Jepsen Magnet School in New Haven this week because an unidentified child was pointing the gun made out of colorful toy blocks at other students.

Very few details have been released by the school which serves students from pre-K to eighth grade.

Will Cook, a spokesperson for New Haven Public Schools told Fox61: ‘School leaders and local police partners were able to investigate and resolve the issue internally with use of restorative practices.’

‘Appropriate steps were taken at the school level to insure the safety of all students and to impress upon the students the seriousness of engaging in positive peer interactions while avoiding conduct that may pose risk or concern to others.

It’s just plain outright ridiculous to call the police over a kid building a toy gun out of blocks. It’s needless melodrama and the teacher responsible for doing that in this case ought to be ashamed of themselves.

This kid likely had the pants scared off of him by having the police show up over this. And let’s not even get into how much of a waste of resources it is to call law enforcement over such an ordeal.

It’s understandable to be on high alert, especially after the shooting in Florida, but there has to be some form of common sense exercised to keep the hysteria down to a minimum. One helpful tool would be armed guards at every entrance.

Unfortunately, these common sense measures are often overlooked due to the fact that liberals are desperate to find an excuse to ban firearms.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
