    Florida Gov. Rick Scott today signed into law a bill that says students cannot get into trouble for “brandishing a partially consumed pastry” or other harmless items meant to simulate a gun.

    The “Pop-Tart” bill aims to stop students from getting in trouble for play that involves obviously pretend guns. Students shouldn’t face discipline, for example, for drawing a picture of a gun or pretending a pencil or their finger was a firearm.

    The bill is similar to legislation first proposed in Maryland, after a 7-year-old boy was suspended from his Baltimore school for chewing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun. That case was widely viewed as an example of zero-tolerance policies gone too far.

    That scream and thud you just heard coming from the general direction of Florida is the state's NEA collapsing in a fit of apoplexy.

    Liberals are willing to mistreat and abuse these young children like this all over an idealology that says they need to do this in order to change the views of people about guns. Shame on them.

    Should have said, it was the pop tart kid that the news spoke about.

    To bad the public schools gave up the education game for the indoctrination game!

    People need to know that the "Pop Tart" bill was an amendment to the overall state of Florida education bill, and not a standalone piece of legislation. I agree, it's pretty pathetic that this sort of thing needs to be codified into law. Your tax dollars at work.
