Dad Is Baffled When School Informs His Son Brought A Weapon, Wait Until You See What It Is

Warner Robins

Ever since the tragedy at Columbine, the school system has taken strides to make sure that such an event doesn’t happen again. They’ve done a great job on some accounts, but they aren’t perfect which lead to the unfortunate situations at Sandy Hook and Atlanta. However, it is because of the recent back-to-back shootings that schools are a lot more stricter, maybe a little too strict.

Reports are now coming in of a boy who brought a weapon to school. The father was told about the situation but it is unbelievable what the weapon is: a toy.

According to WMAZ and The Blaze, Ramsey McDonald of Warner Robins was given a fun assignment which is to bring int some of their favorite toys to talk about. Unfortunately, the toy Ramsey brought it was a Nerf gun. For those who don’t know, Nerf is well known for making children’s sports toys but also toy guns, which shoot foam balls or darts, which are clearly made not to not intentionally hurt anyone. Nevertheless, the toy was still considered a “weapon.”

Ramsey’s father, Scott McDonald, explained he wouldn’t have let his son take the Nerf gun to school. Unfortunately, when Ramsey asked about bringing the toys to school, he told his dad he wanted to bring an iPad and a couple of other toys. It must have been an innocent enough request in which Scott agreed with a simple “OK.” Therefore, he didn’t know one of the toys so happened to be a Nerf gun.

Scott learned the hard way it wasn’t “OK” as he received a call on Tuesday about his son having a “weapon,” as explained in the following statement:

“They [Warner Robins] told me my son brought a weapon to school and they asked me if I was aware. I asked them what it was and they said it was a plastic Nerf gun.”

Ramsey was initially given a three-day suspension. Instead, it was reduced to a three-day in-school suspension. Also, it should be reported that Ramsey wasn’t trying to cause any trouble. All he wanted to do was show off his new toys to his new classmates as explained by Scott when he said:

“He [Ramsey] told me he didn’t know they would think it was a weapon or he wouldn’t have brought it to school.”

What do you think about the situation at Warner Robins? Is the punishment Ramsey got for bringing a toy, that looks like a gun, to school fair, or is the school system being too extreme in this “accident”? Let us know in the comments below.

    I have "Zero Tolerance" for the "Zero Tolerance" policy that schools are going by now. And the liberal anti-gun crowd needs to gain some common sense. (If they did, they wouldn't be liberals any more!)

  2. Beth Lambert

    While Dad should have taken the time to find out what the "other" toys were that his son was taking to school, this is almost as ridiculous as the little boy who got in trouble for making a gun with his finger and thumb a while back. Give me a break schools! Zero Tolerance has gotten way out of hand!

  3. David Keith

    This is ridiculous. It's obviously not made to hurt anyone, and you can see by looking at it, that it in no way resembles a real gun. These "zero tolerance" policies are just like restricted gun laws for adults. The only ones who will obey them are ones who already abide by the rules and laws. If a person, regardless of age, has it in their mind to hurt or kill, one more stupid rule won't stop them.

  4. Judy A. Osborn

    I believe we need to hire some teachers and administrators that have attended the school of common sense. This is ridiculous. Where to these people come from?

  5. Dennis Turk

    Your children are not going to school to learn…They are being programmed to conform…

  6. Tommi Workman

    We HAVE to start using COMMON SENSE in our schools—these zero tolerance for WEAPONS should apply to WEAPONS —not NERF items OR pictures of weapons or plastic knives to cut your lunch——WAY OUT OF HAND===and a suspension…..that's like prison for jaywalking! equally over the top

  7. Natalie Ringger

    I'm a liberal and I have more common sense in my pinky finger than you have in your entire body apparently because I understand part of common sense is not insulting most of the country and stereotyping them based on political beliefs. I don't see anything wrong with being against him violence, excuse the eff out of us that we don't like to see innocent people gunned down. You're referring to extremists, not liberals, get it right jerk.

  8. Craig Ahern

    All I can say is these days ,we are not able to raise our own kids,the government is doing it for us,I wish we could go back to the old days,where it worked.

  9. Craig Ahern

  10. Jill Silar-Richeal

    It boils down to one thing: If the rules state zero tolerance then zero tolerance is what it is. If you don't like rule, fight to change it. Until then, children need to follow rules

  11. Tim Ryder

    Most liberals (most PARENTS) hate zero tolerance policies too. They aren't pandering to a political party, they are trying to adopt a bulletproof liability strategy.

  12. Paul Smith

    Natalie, do you think that more anti-gun laws are needed? Do you know that the top three cities for gun violence per capita (Chicago, NYC and Washington DC) have the strictest anti-gun laws in the country? In cities with reasonable CCW permits, the crime rate is much lower because the criminal quickly learns that some of their victims are armed and they don't know which ones are packing heat.

    As for saying liberals have no common sense, I am indeed referring to the far left wing. (the far right wing also lacks this valuable asset) My problem is these extreme left wing liberals that have gotten into positions of power in the country. In the education system and government. They want to impose their rules and laws on everyone else despite those rules and laws not being well thought out. The extreme right wingers are guilty of the same thing, just from the opposite direction.

    Tim, the most effective short term solution to gun violence taking place in schools and other "gun free" zones is a deterrent of at least one armed guard in the school. The long term solution is for parents to be parents and not let the nanny state take over what is supposed to be their job. Back in the 1950's and early sixties, gun safety and target shooting was routinely taught in schools. I took courses in it in High School at Clearwater High in 1974-75 and was the captain of the Competition Shooting Rifle Team. I would go every Saturday by bike with my best friend to the rifle range near Clearwater Air Park and practice. Yes, I was under 18 at the time and I had a signed permission slip from my parents to be allowed on the range and to shoot.

  13. Paul Smith

    One more thing, the most recent polls show that "most of the country" (about 66%) is not liberal, but conservative or libertarian.

  14. Natalie Ringger

    My gun beliefs are irrelevant. Libertarians are far more like liberals in their beliefs than conservatives, so it's not inaccurate to say the majority of the country is liberal. Liberals also know we're the majority so we don't find it as critical to make our stance known so it's good to take putocal pills with a grain of salt, they're always skewed. If you're referring to the far left wing it's probably better to say that than to just liberals, because heaven forbid someone thinks you actually mean what you say, after all we're not mind readers. And yes I do agree that extremists on either side lack common sense.

  15. Tracy Patterson

    Unfortunately this is what it's come to. Children can not bring anything that is weapon related, a water gun, a gun that makes noise, even one that is bizarrely colored. It matters neither way. Technically a kid can't even put their fingers in the shape of a gun at school anymore, or they get in trouble for it. It's considered a threat. I only know this because I was called by the school personally for such an issue.

  16. Cecil Haywood

    School system gone wild. Will a pencil be considered a weapon next? One could stab with it. Oops , I should not have given the teacher that idea. My bad.

  17. Jessica Frank

    What a fucking joke. That's not extreme. That's stupid. I can understand a pocket knife. But a toy gun? Seriously? What's he going to do, hold the school hostage with a foam dart? Come on.

  18. Lisa Koski

    I am a flaming liberal and find your comments inappropriate, ignorant, and wrong. Stop watching fox news and feeling self-righteous about your idiotic opinions.
    Liberals think these rules are overboard also. SMDH

  19. James Aaron Nance

    I think the point here is that a nerf gun is a toy, not a weapon, and any relatively intelligent human being, child or adult knows this. The school is stupid for their actions. A gun is a gun, a toy is a toy, a toy gun is a toy. What gets me is schools doing the same thing to children who make finger guns and play cops and robbers……OMFG!!! Hes got a finger gun!!!! Its incredibly fucking stupid where we are all allowing this to go. Sad thing is, its only the stupid people pushing for this crap and acting like its ok. The people who (rightfully) think things like this are retarded, usually have more important shit to worry about than trying to talk intelligence into the mentally deficient majority.

  20. James Aaron Nance

    What I think is retarded, Ok my 4 year old girl starts preschool this week. I have actually had to sit down and explain to her that she cant play certain games like cops/robbers, good guys/bad guys and say things like "Bang your dead"……..That is retarded. Basically we are becoming such a fearful society we cater to the most vocal groups of pussified morons who dont know a glock from a fuckin pop tart, and those of us with common sense dont even realize the depth of our societies stupidity until it becomes common place, and even law. Here are the simple rules of life people: 1. Dont Kill people. 2. Dont hurt people. 3. Dont steal from people. 4. Dont damage other peoples shit. 5. Dont tell other people how to live, and respect their rights to live as they please. And 6. If anyone tries to do any of these things to you (with the exception of #3,4 and 5) Hurt them or kill them before they can hurt or kill you by any means necessary. How is that for inappropriate? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Heres to good old fashioned U.S.A.

  21. Natalie Ringger

    Yeah, zero tolerance on WEAPONS! A nerf gun is not a weapon it's a toy! Not a real weapon! I can't believe anyone finds these administrators opinions to be logical in any way! It's ridiculous!

  22. Jeff Finley

    Oh please. .. it doesn't even look like a real gun. That nerf gun isn't even the definition of a weapon. I'd sue.

  23. Jill Silar-Richeal

    Natalie Ringger you are missing the point. It does NOT matter what my opinion or your opinon is about this. What matter is the school's law states. If it states NO type of weapon, those involved must respect that. If they can;t accept it, then you have to relocate your family somewhere that has rules or ideals similar to yours. NEVER once did I say if I agreed or disagreed with what happned!

  24. Karma Ayers

    I find this stupid. The majority of anti gunners have no idea what they are talking about and haven't even used a gun. The .22 LR and the AR15 come to mind. They may look alike (some models) but totally different yet too many talking heads get their ideas from their ass. A play gun is a play gun ffs!

  25. Rob Russell

    wow get a fuckin grip a toy i think my son would have got kicked from that school cuz i would have knocked that person out..a fckin toy….wait lmfao nerf toy ya fckin paranoid fcks i feel what happned but stop takin out on the innocent kids

  26. Barbara Tamy Fowler

    ANYTHING could be labeled a "weapon." Pencils & pens can stab (I know of a first grader doing this), rulers can be used to hit, you can even clobber people with notebooks/binders. Did you ever get a finger in the big binder rings that can snap shut like a trap? Should kids stop doing experiments in science because they could throw chemicals on some one? Shop class = hammers, screwdrivers, 2x4s. Cooking class = hot liquids, knives, rolling pins, forks. Staplers & scissors could be used as "weapons" too. Jump ropes can strangle. We need to root out the kids with bullying/violent tendencies, where are the counselors to help the children who think violence/bullying is the answer? Obviously, the way some schools are being run/the laws in the school district are some of the issues. Making "examples" of children with toys will just push the real problem issues underground.

  27. Irene Norton

    THAT PUNISHMENT WAS UNCALLED FOR. IT'S A TOY PEOPLE. HE WAS TOLD TOI BRING A FAVORITE TOY SO IT;S NOT HIS FAULT. TALK TO HIS TEACHER.
    SHE'S THE ONE TO BLAME.

  28. Michael Hartmann

    these moronic School officials have successfully weaponized stupidity. That's quite the accomplishment. The kid is smarter than the average adult at school.

  29. John P Curry

    look up the definition of weapon …….. weap·on [wep-uhn] Show IPA

    noun

    1. any instrument or device for use in attack or defense in combat, fighting, or war, as a sword, rifle, or cannon.
    2. anything used against an opponent, adversary, or victim: the deadly weapon of satire.
    3. Zoology . any part or organ serving for attack or defense, as claws, horns, teeth, or stings.
    verb (used with object)
    4. to supply or equip with a weapon or weapons: to weapon aircraft with heat-seeking missiles.

    TOYS and WEAPONS ARE NOT THE SAME BY DEFINITION

  30. Jim Naumann

    this is what happens when you let the wacked out liberal left run schools…

    that's all that are in schools are the libitards of the world that cannot work in the real world

    they think everyone is a winner, everyone is out to get them, everyone is going to take something from you

    you teach being green like a religion not a business, you do not believe in competition and that is why you support unions because then no one makes more or makes more of themselves.

    IT IS CLEAR THIS IS A TOY WITH NO CAPIBILITY TO HARM PEOPLE, BUT THE WORTHLESS UNION TRASH TEACHING OUR KIDS

    DO NOT KNOW ANY BETTER

    socialist union trash with no idea how the real world works

  31. Jim Naumann

    Natalie Ringger we have to endure the stereotyping by you libitards

    we are racist, we are uncaring, we are war mongers, we are anti clean water and air

  33. Timothy Ringo

    Wait.. the School tells him to bring his favorite toy as an assignment and he gets a 3 day suspension for completing the assignment. that is really smart there. next time i guess the school should be more specific on the parameters of the assignment, " you can bring a toy that you like that we or others wont find offensive . "

  34. Edward Ebersole

    I would have to say it sounds like the school here in this situation went a bit too far. The boy in this article was obviously a innocent child who became a victim because of the not too tolerant administrators. They acted like bullies more so than thinking, feeling human beings. Stop and think people before you act. You want the children to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, but look at how you reacted. You acted like a bunch of robots. Someone should have been able to discern and dictate for themselves what was actually going on in this child's case.

  35. Jerri Scott

    I never realized just how many STUPID people are in the world!!!!! Its a TOY gun that shoots foam for gods sake!!!!! You would think these idiots would feel some shame or embarrassment …but,i guess not….must make them proud……I for one sure as hell wouldn't want people thinkin im stupid…. LMAO

  36. Anonymous

    Schools do not use any common sense…actually they are incapable. Schools now days are using the educational guise to push their anti-gun, social and political agendas. They are treating this kid like a criminal. Toy guns happen to be LEGAL in the our free country called the USA.

  37. Will Wright

    But blindly following rules like you do in this case,is a huge part of the problem.Teachers like yourself should use common sense and not even ring this to the principals attention.And YOU the teachers should be the most vocal in decrying this.But you are scared you would be fired so you keep mum and follow a rule even when it is idiotic.

    An Obituary printed in the London Times…..!
    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who
    has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was,
    since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
    He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
    – Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
    – Why the early bird gets the worm;
    – Life isn't always fair;
    – And maybe it was my fault.
    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend
    more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children,
    are in charge).
    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
    overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
    charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens
    suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher
    fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
    job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
    Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses;
    and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a
    burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
    realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap,
    and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
    Common Sense was preceded in death,
    -by his parents, Truth and Trust,
    -by his wife, Discretion,
    -by his daughter, Responsibility,
    -and by his son, Reason.
    He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers;
    – I Know My Rights
    – I Want It Now
    -Someone Else Is To Blame
    – I'm A Victim
    – Pay me for Doing Nothing
    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

    It is time for parents to start Suing the schools that tarnish a childs permanent record, over such lack of common sense with Zero Tolerance. Even thought they are only children it is Defamation of Character and stays on their school record. It could follow them through their entire educational years. Not to mention the emotional distress it causes a child. Start Demanding that the people terrorizing these children be held accountable for Their actions too. The Only way it will change is for the Parents to stand together and Demand those changes!

  40. Brad Schofield

    idiotic school systems pass these broad, blanket rules with zero tolerance, but they do not leave room for a human being to use their brain and evaluate the infraction. it has gotten WAY out of hand

  41. Les Baker

    Why didn't the father check what toys the boy was taking to school?? Anything weapon related in not a good idea!!

    "…schools are a lot more stricter…" Really? Who approves this for publication?!

  43. Lee Nicosia Higgins

    I bet anything that the permanent record will only state "weapon" and not distinguish that it was a Nerf gun. idiots…

    Yeah, that made me laugh. Apparently his school wasn't "more stricter" about teaching English…

    There is no common sense in the United States any longer. Years ago, Richard Nixon stated "America must join the rest of the world." when the rest of the world was trying to catch up to America. Now the U. S. has "joined" and fallen behind the rest of the world. Along with the decline is the loss of common sense, intelligence, critical thinking, and infrastructures from transportation to quality education to industry. Congratulations America! You have joined the 3rd world and are sinking below it. What a stupid waste of resources, human and natural.

  47. Shawn Abramson

    what a stupid world we live in. Whoever thinks a Nerf gun is a weapon should just call it a day and move to nanny England. They will fit right in.

  48. Kevin Doody

    Oh come on! What kind of message are we sending to our kids with regards to common sense? And we wonder why our children today are winding up so screwed up; we coddle and pamper and treat them like they are too stupid to understand the difference between a nerf gun and a real gun.

  49. John Stover

    if common sense were used, when this was seen, if they are going to freak out over it that much, it could have been put in a teacher or principles desk drawer, tell the kid why it maybe it was not the best toy to bring, gets it back after school, bring a different toy next time, done, no big deal, seems like everyon ewa nt to make the headlines with a kid pointing his or her finger like a gun and make news event out of it, or get it taken to the courts

  50. Craig Gibson

    Zero tolerance policies create zero room for common sense, for decency, for human leniency. They are as disgusting as the wrongs they supposedly attempt to stop – because they punish us all and treat society as if we're raging idiots, killers, rapists, sexists and wrongdoers.

    I agree that the policy is stupid but, on the other hand, that toy is way too big to hide in a backpack. I don't buy that the parents didn't see the kid walk out the door with it. IF the rule is "no toy guns" then don't let your kid bring one to school.

  54. Lee Nicosia Higgins

    I think it should not be considered an offense…it's almost as bad as the kid who chewed a pop tart into the shape of Florida and the teacher said it was a gun. Idiots…

  55. Denise Herder

    This world has gone INSANE! I am a retired teacher with 32 years under my belt as an elementary teacher in the public school system in a small town in Kansas. This insanity is running rampant even in our conservative state. Kids shutter when other kids put their fingers in a position that looks like a gun as well as spelling the word "gun" because it rhymes with "run" and has the "un" ending. Yes, common sense would be appreciated. I'm not sure there is any left. The young teachers are being brainwashed by the administration with their policy of "no tolerance". As for me, I have a mind of my own, tons of common sense, and finally decided that I had had enough and RETIRED! God help this country. My advice to parents is, home school your kids or send them to a private school that isn't so crazy and controlled by the state or federal government.

  56. George Wilhelm

    IMHO…I think all the idiots that we have in positions of power that don't use their God-given common sense should go over to Russia or Iraq or or any other country where the gov't tells them when to get up, when to pee, when to sleep, etc. Seems this country is becoming a bunch of educated fools because no one actually seems to think for themselves or use common sense in the US of A anymore. It's a nerf gun, multipcolored, and not used in a negative way. Please! Boys of all ages (mostly) LIKE man things and there is no way it is going to be gotten rid of even if there are no 'man' toys around. I tried. Didn't work!

  58. Michelle Sayre Newton

    I totally agree with you Millie. Do they not realize they are making this child out to be a criminal?
    I played army with the neighborhood kids when I was a child. We wounded and killed each other a hundred times, but not one of us grew up and hurt any one. My daughter was called at work and had to go to my grandson's elementary school immediately. When she arrived, the principal informed her that her son was pointing his finger at another boy and pretending it was a gun. A few little eight year old boys were shooting each other with their fingers while on the playground at recess. My daughter couldn't believe it. By the urgency of the call she received at work she was expecting something far worse. She was sarcastic with them and said she couldn't believe that little boys would ever play cops and robbers.

  63. Michelle Sayre Newton

    Lee Nicosia Higgins You're right. It should not go in the records and it should not of even happened. If you make any kind of complaint to the school about something like this, it should be put in writing with the date and your signature on it for the school records. People need to ask for their children's school records. They might be surprised at what they read.

  64. Jon Howard

    First of all, a nerf gun is a toy, not a weapon. Are our teachers and administrators of our schools really that damn dumb. Better get rid of the forks in the lunch room because I have seen very serious wounds made by a fork. A car key will inflict more injury than a nerf gun. It can be used as a weapon. Teachers better be put on suspension for their car keys in their pockets. This is the most ridiculous crap I have ever witnessed!

  65. Jay Smith

    The school is like most schools today. The teachers and administrators are like horses with blinder on. They see one way and have no common sense at all. Some students get away with anything and others are punished for the stupidest of reason. Many teachers today would not even make a good door greeter at Wal-mart. As a matter of fact I had to go complain to a Wal-mart manager over actions of his door greeter. The greeter was a former high school principal.

    If it looks like a gun and shoots like a gun ,it is a gun.But i wouldn't call aNerf gun a weapon.Although it is conceivable that the inner workings could be a real gun. So yes, the punishment was correct. No tolerance means no tolerance.It is better to be safe than sorry!

    Judy sadly liberalism takes away any form of common sense as it get's in the way of their intentional stupidity. They have created this atmosphere of fear by their continual fear mongering. They want to make everyone afraid as then folks will allow them to take over & make everyone safe. They will tell you what to eat, think, & how to live. All the while draining the life out of the country.

    I think the problem with the schools isn't zero tolerance but definition of a weapon. Obviously a pocket knife is a weapon. And contrary to some district opinions, two fingers pointed at someone are not a weapon. This is were the schools need to clarify their policies. Zero tolerance should only apply to an actual weapon not a toy that is obviously not a weapon. Lets go schools, use the brains you are given and think before you act.

    I'm surprised the school didn't go into full lock down and the Police SWAT team wasn't called in so they could show off their new MRAP combat truck. I remember when I was in the sixth grade bringing my fathers Remington 510 rifle to school on the bus and stacking it with the other 20 rifles at the front of the classroom because we were going to the local police training range for a gun safety field trip that afternoon. Funny thing happened. No-one was shot, no police called, no-one freaked out, good time was had by all.

    The child should not have received any type punishment for this. This country is getting out of hand!!!

    The Warner Robins school system should be ashamed and embarrassed. It all stems from frivolous lawsuits, the schools are afraid to not act in fear of a lawsuit. So I think the answer is to fight fire with fire. If it were my kid I would sue the school…. Its always the squeaky wheel that gets the grease and the liberals have been squeaking for a long time. Even though it is against the nature of a conservative to sue people, its time for us common sense people to start making some noise!!!

    …let's see how about…teacher to student with a stern tone " Ramsey put the TOY away ..and don't take it out till school is over ( then..and this is the most important part, continuing )..now class today we continue with…."

    No pause !!… immediately change the focus, the situation…DEVOLVE THE THING !!.. it is the job of the
    educator the on site person, the first line, to "right" the situation with out further involving admin.
