A Philadelphia school teacher is under fire for letting a student make a wooden gun in shop class.

The Philadelphia school district is launching an all-out investigation into a teacher after a parent complained about their child bringing home a wooden gun from school that child had made in shop class. This nothing-burger school project may end up costing this teacher his job as the parents of the student are demanding answers and accountability.

The father of the child is outraged that the shop teacher let the young boy make the wooden gun in class, this father does not want his children playing with toy guns no matter how toy-like they are. The school district, like many others, has a blanket ban on firearms, weapons, even those firearms and weapons that are simulated, replica, toy, or look-alikes.

This teacher may have violated school policy in letting the student make this toy gun and the school’s investigation into him may cost him his job.

One parent told CBS Local PhiladelphiaWhy would a teacher help make a gun? It’s stupid.” Another told the outlet “A teacher let him do it in school. It’s not right, it’s not right, it’s not right.

To be totally clear, this is a nothing burger story… at least it should be.

If you went back in time 50 years and showed this story to any parent they would look at you with shock and awe, they might also laugh you out of the room. This story shows us just how bad things have gotten. 50 years isn’t that long ago, don’t let them make you think it is.

Right. When the Communist Left begins clamping down on We the People with the New Woke Military and the “we just follow orders” police, they don’t want any of those Brave American Defenders injured by a wood sliver!

Okay, all of this sounds juvenile and insane. But, hey! IT’S WORKING FOR THE COMMUNIST LEFT.

Wake up, America! It IS happening here!

What is stupid is the so called wimp of a father. You are opening the flood gates of destruction for your kid. Enjoy your demise idiot’s. They are destroying not only your child’s future. But other kid’s as well. You sit on your lazy butt’s when destructive issues come up in the indoctrination centers. But come apart over this. You are NOT a parent and show the rest of the world what a gullible clueless lazy idiot you are. If your kid was smart he would run away from you since you obviously don’t have his back. Your time is coming. When you get what you deserve and start crying like the spineless baby about it. I hope someone knocks you on your rump and tells you to shut up since you was one of the many who caused it.

Fortunately, the gun grabbers are dwindling and those who remain, like this twit, are floating to the top of the news. This small anecdote reveals two problems Philadelphia shares with many other large cities. First residents harbor an irrational fear of firearms, hoplophobia. Secondly, they show an irrational allegiance to the public school system.

It’s a very bad idea for any nation to allow the government to educate its children.

Right. My middle-aged son made a wooden gun when he was in high school shop class. Both my sons are law-abiding citizens and have guns now. Founding fathers knew what they were doing. I don’t think this father does.

It’s not right, it’s not right, it’s not right.
Seems as though this “parent” never grew up. Disagree is you want to but act like the adult in the room rather than the third grader!

I am 75 years old, when I was in high school, we took our guns with us during dove season as did some of the teachers. After school all of us got together and went hunting.
We never had a shooting or anyone pull a gun on someone. I don’t know what has happen to people today. By the way, both my son and daughter were learning to shoot and safety at 6 years old. Both are professionals and have their conceal and carry.

These administrators and school boards are ASSanine fools.

Teach the kids to be racist and to have perverted sexual subjects taught. Homosexuals indoctrinating young students to CHOOSE the homosexual lifestyle. But G-U-N-S even pictures or pop tarts chewed in the shape of a g-u-n are DaNgErOuS and the “GUILTY” STUDENT(S) need to be expelled and if lucky MAYBE let in to another school.

OMG!!! Raising this much ruckus over a wooden gun?? I know I’m from the boonies but we used to bring our “hunting gear” to school in our trucks! No one was ever the victim of an armed assault or shooting either. Maybe it has more to do with raising responsible humans than it has to do with the inanimate object or tool!!!!

Make sure the young in the country are not to know that a gun was how this country became a new freedom place. Now those in power want to return to elite rule and will stop at nothing to make it happen.
