Signing Exact English (Set) to school " ciaos. (. earn)
communicate and signs his name
by crossing his [nalex finger and mkettle finger and then wagging his
hands.
Drawing upon a policy that forbids "any instrument that looks like a
weapon," Grand Island Public School board officials say that Hunter' s
name looks too much like a gun gesture to be used in school.
It' s a symbol. It' s an actual sign, a registered sign, through Set," said

and his name sign, they say, is a violation of their weapons policy"

I want to go visit this school, not to protest with everyone else, they all have that taken care of.
But I want to see a kid during recess playing cowboys and indians with his friends make a gun gesture with his hands, and then get drop kicked in the face out of ******* no where by a grown man in riot gear, maced while unconscious, and dragged away in a police cruiser to undergo psychiatric evaluation and interrogation to figure out the motive behind the murder plot he was were suggesting on the playground.

"When asked why he made a gun threat toward Abdul on the playground, 6 year old Michael responded through tears, 'is c-cause we were playin' and he w-wa-was a indians'. Leading investigators to suspect a racial motivation, and dispatch officers to search Abdul's home for evidence of terrorism as a precaution. More details soon."

Guys don't say "fun" at school. It sounds too much like "gun," so the school's armed guards will have to shoot you.

Wow nice one you ******* morons. As if that child isn't deprived enough, you want to get a deaf kid to change his name, because when he tries to tell people his name he has to make out a gun with his hands... OHH **** HIS HANDS ARE SHAPED LIKE A GUN! He is suddenly a health and safety threat. Sincerely to those ******* nitwits that made this decision: Go shove your ******* retarded policy up your ass and I hope you get hit by lightening. Ohh and i'm extremely butthurt because I have a friend who is deaf and can't speak.

Apparently regulations and rules allow people to defy common ******* sense.

Schools are way too uptight about guns. You so much as whisper "gun" and a ******* SWAT team bursts through the windows.

It shouldn't matter what the kid's name looks like, it's his name.

They can't do that. That's depriving him of his rights.

I hope the school gets the **** sued out of them, but I also hope for some more satisfactory, 4chan style justice.

Welcome to America
Where getting a gun is easier than jerking off, but if you make a gesture that looks even REMOTELY like a finger gun, God help you. If my rage could be converted to electricity, it could make a light bulb glow so bright that even the deepest corners of sunken R'lyeh would look like a goddamn rave
