Liberal Insanity: Senior High School Student Faces Expulsion Over Drill Team Gun Prop

Video here

Marie Morrow, a 17-year-old senior at Cherokee Trail High School in Aurora, is serving a 10-day suspension. Her punishment could be extended at an expulsion hearing later this month.

Morrow is a student leader in the Douglas County Young Marines, a group dedicated to teaching leadership and life skills.

Cherry Creek Schools suspended Morrow after other students reported seeing guns inside her SUV, which was parked outside school while she was in class.

The school also called police, who seized the three drill team guns made of wood, plastic and duct tape. Police told Morrow to claim them in time for her after-school drill practice off-campus.

School administrators, however, were less understanding. The guns were declared "authentic representations of genuine weapons," triggering a mandatory expulsion statute in state law.

You've got to blame the school, but you also need to blame our lame society for kids who get freaked out at the sight of fake homemade rifles inside a locked vehicle. How ridiculous.

Also, we don't need to start the great liberal/conservative invective in titles.
