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.

Bill Barr Goes On Record, Says Dems ‘Engaged In A War’ to Systemically Sabotage Trump Admin

Is he wrong? Or is he 100% correct?

If you think Attorney General Bill Barr is wrong or off-base or is just talking to hear his own voice, you’re not paying attention. Thankfully, you’re a conservative and you’re in the know. At a recent event, Barr proclaimed what all Republicans have been thinking from day one. The left is determined to bring down President Trump and every member of his administration by any means necessary. Barr, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and many others close to POTUS, aren’t afraid to say what they are thinking. Barr didn’t hold back. Here’s the scoop, via Daily Wire: Attorney General William Barr went off on the so called “resistance” during a Friday speech at the Federalist Society’s 2019 National Lawyers Convention in Washington, D.C., warning that the political Left is “engaged in a war” to “cripple” and “sabotage” the Trump administration from being able to function. Barr noted, “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘The Resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration. Now, ‘resistance’ is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic. What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the ‘loyal opposition,’ as opposing parties have done in the past, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.” WATCH: AG Bill Barr on the Democrats: “they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool & maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of [the Trump admin]… they essentially see themselves as…

Kaepernick Changes NFL Workout At Last Minute, League Says He Pulled A Fast One (Details)

This went exactly as Kaepernick planned…

Jay-Z reportedly helped Colin Kaepernick secure a workout for NFL teams as a way to make amends with his liberal fanbase after working on a project with Commissioner Roger Goodell. They thought he sold out. 24 of the NFL’s 32 teams were set to show up to the private workout in Atlanta. There wasn’t supposed to be any media in attendance. At the last minute, seemingly out of the blue, Colin and his camp decided to change the location so there would be media. You know, for transparency sake. Now, Colin is getting called out for turning the event in a sideshow. Here’s what’s up, via Washington Post: Representatives for quarterback Colin Kaepernick moved and rescheduled his workout for NFL teams Saturday after disagreements persisted with the league over the details of his audition. The session, as planned by the NFL, was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Atlanta Falcons’ training complex in Flowery Branch, Ga. After continued haggling with the league over the conditions for the workout, Kaepernick’s representatives announced it would be moved to 4 p.m. at another Atlanta-area venue. They wanted the session open to the media, which the NFL refused, and objected to the version of a liability waiver that the league wanted Kaepernick to sign, Kaepernick’s representatives said.
