It’s about gun rights for everyone


CFN

Gazette staff
Representative Sally Kern is just thinking of the children, especially the right for them to bear, well, things in the shape of arms. In a funny little piece of legislature proposed by her, it would make it illegal for teachers to punish children for having weapons on their minds and indulging in playtime activities such as drawing a gun, using fingers or hands in the shape of a gun or making gun noises.
