BB Afraid! — BB VERY Afraid!

This is a picture of a BB gun.  Scary, eh?  Well,  maybe not as scary as an actual, physical BB gun, which could hurt you in the wrong hands, like a butter knife or a very small rock or a cheap ball-point pen.  But the picture is comparatively safe, unless you're a teacher, especially a teacher in California.  Such teachers are a timid lot, and fear not only guns, but pictures of guns.  What do they do with stories about guns, I wonder?  Has Red Badge of Courage been edited to be about Yankees and Confederates slapping each other like Scarlette and her pals?  Or has it just been replaced by Heather has Two Mommies and a Kenyan President?  I'm pretty sure Red Ryder won't be allowed anywhere near the school, what with his violence-enabling behavior.  And that goes for his savage assistant, Little Beaver, too.

My only question is, does a picture of a BB gun present more or less of a threat than a pop-tart gnawed at until it's vaguely shaped like a gun?  Maybe I should leave that question to the philosophers, or just wait till the National Education Association makes a ruling.  Well, as for the picture of a BB gun, this from Tony Katz's blog:

Actor Joseph C. Phillips: Teacher Threatened My Son, Questioned His Mental State Over Photo Of BB Gun

MARCH 4, 2013

In California, gun hysteria has reached such fanatical heights that teachers now feel empowered to confiscate student property, disregard their privacy, question their mental state and threaten police action – in front of other students. All have happened to the son of actor and entrepreneur Joseph C. Phillips, at El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, CA.

Phillips, best known for his role as Lt. Martin Kendall on The Cosby Show, lives with his wife and three sons in the San Fernando Valley. In addition to being a regular fill-in host for Larry Elder on KABC radio in Los Angeles, he owns Daddy J’s Wingshack, where his 15-year-old son works and earned the money for an Airsoft bb gun. Last week his son brought a digital camera to school to show his friends a picture of the Airsoft.

On my radio show Saturday, Phillips explained that as his son was showing off the single photo, his Social Studies teacher, a Mr. James DeLarme, walked by. As his son described the incident, DeLarme “snatched” the camera out of his hand and asked him about the photo. When his son explained that it was a picture of an Airsoft bb gun, DeLarme declared the police would have to be notified and promptly left the room to confer with another teacher. The two teachers scrolled through all the photos on the camera, finally handing it back to the boy. Then, in front of all the students, DeLarme asked him, “Do you have any animosity towards your classmates?” and “Are you angry at anyone at school?”

  1. Paul Elam, A Voice for Men- the biggest conjob in the MRA and disinfo agent

    A short commentary on MRA leaders

    The so called "Leaders" of the MRA area are lying to you all. They are telling you that governments make legislation that you HAVE to obey and that they can FORCE you to obey using the police FORCE. This is a lie. They know it is a lie. And they are telling you lies that they know are lies.

    The TRUTH is that legislation is NOT LAW and you do not have to obey ANY legislation. Here are links to videos that go into this in detail. This is not a new idea. Many people KNOW that legislation is not law and have been telling you so for a long time.

    The excuse offered is usually "well the guvment can hurt you if you do not obey" is just that. An excuse. The only reason that guvments do hurt men who do not obey is because men have TOLERATED these crimes and not formed new courts to put criminals in guvment on trial. Men only have themselves to blame.

  2. I love the school I work at where kids wear bullet necklaces and have bullet shaped pens and have videos of themselves engaged in shooting competitions entered in national high school journalism contests. Gotta love Far,Far West Texas.
