Oklahoma Lawmaker Pushes Bill To Stop Ludicrous “Gun” Related Suspensions In Schools
No more punishments for hand gestures, toy weapons, or food bitten into gun shapes

A spate of incidents in the last year in schools across the country has led to children being suspended or expelled for such ludicrous things as biting food into the shape of a gun, or simply using their hands to make a gun gesture.
