Dailycaller – Nevada Republicans have introduced a bill that would legalize Pop-Tart guns, finger guns and other non-lethal non-firearms in the state’s elementary schools.
“A little plastic gun that small is not going to be mistaken for a real gun,” Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler told the state Assembly’s education committee on Wednesday, according to KOLO News.
To drive the point home, a supporter of the bill treated members of the committee to tasty Pop-Tarts to observe how harmless they are, a reference to a case two years ago in Maryland where an 8-year-old boy was suspended after nibbling a cherry Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun.

The bill, AB 121, wouldn’t just bar school staff from punishing students for wielding toy guns made of plastic or toaster pastries. It would also protect students from being punished for ”simulating a firearm or dangerous weapon” or “wearing clothing or accessories that depict a firearm or dangerous weapon.”
Finally our long national nightmare is over! Kids will finally be able to bite their pop tarts into the shape of a gun and make their hand into a gun shape without getting suspended from school. It’s about time. Have you noticed that for as much progress were making as a society (gay marriage, equal rights for men and women, weed starting to become legal) we’re going completely backwards in other areas? Common sense is completely non-existent. In Nevada there are elected officials who are supposed to be the people’s “leaders” being paid to debate a law that would allow kids to bite their pop tarts into the shape of a gun without facing suspension. That’s happening in real life in 2015. This isn’t the blind leading the blind. It’s the blind and deaf leading people who can see and hear. We’re truly in an incredible time folks. Good luck to anyone out there planning on having kids.
