A Colorado second grader was disciplined after he drew a picture of a handgun during an assignment where students look up to the clouds and draw what they see.
Kody Smith, 8, went outside May 14, looked up to the sky and saw a big fluffy handgun, KKTV.com reported. When he showed the drawing to his teacher at Talbott Elementary in Widefield, which is southeast of Colorado Springs, he was reprimanded.
So an 8yo can't draw a picture of a handgun but it's perfectly okay to send him home and let him play Halo.
Because it was a gun, the teacher at Talbott Elementary in Widefield called him into the office, and then filed a behavior report. His parents say that's too much.
“It hurts. It hurts that he was so scared for being penalized for his imagination,” said Kody’s father, Jeff Smith.
“He’s 8 years old. He was doing exactly what he was told to do for the assignment,” said Kody’s mother, Angel Rivers.
Because the liberal teachers unions who take their orders from the democrat establishment do not want any of THOSE items banned.
