What Happened, America?: Airsoft picture gets folks riled up

People's hoplophobia knows no bounds...

'Blown out of proportion': Dad defends teens suspended for posing with Airsoft guns

Are people really intimating that these kids are threatening to shoot up Homecoming?  They are exercising better trigger discipline than most actors in TV shows and movies.  They are not pointing the Airsoft replicas at the camera with scowls on their faces.  I understand an overabundance of caution, but all that needed to be done was call the parents and confirm they were aware of their children's photos.

As to the "disruption" caused at school, I call bullshit.  People are talking about it?  So what!  Maybe its an opportunity to educate others that not all things related to Airsoft and/or guns is a bad thing.  Of course, the reality is that the indoctrination centers, er, I mean, public school system would never allow that lesson to be taught.

The wussification continues.  What happened, America?
