Oh boy, here we go again:

A 10-year-old Alexandria boy was arrested after police said he brought a toy handgun to school on Tuesday, a day after he showed it to others on a school bus.

The boy, a fifth-grader at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said.

He was also suspended from school, and Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Morton Sherman said further action is being considered, including expulsion

What kind of people would arrest a 5th grader for bringing a toy gun to a school? Can a toy gun kill someone? No. So why suspend the kid and even take him into custody?

What a world we live in.

Yeah there has also been a rash of these incidents which have lead to school suspensions over the past couple of weeks when the kids are merely using their fingers to point as a gun playing with other kids. It's really getting out of hand when these school officials have lost all common sense and begin to implement on-the-fly policy relating to the MSM hype behind a weapons ban.
