From The Blaze-If you heard about a kid being suspended for shooting a toy gun – you’d at least think the “crime” would have happened on school grounds, right? Nope! The world is even more upside down that you’ve probably realized as a seven year old boy has now been suspended for shooting an Airsoft gun in his own yard.

Khalid Caraballo, 12, and his friend, Aidan, were suspended for “possession, handling and use of a firearm”, TheBlaze reported, because they shot at two friends they were playing with while waiting for the school bus. Caraballo has said that he was playing in his yard, seventy yards away from the bus stop.

From The Blaze and WAVY-TV-

A suspended seventh-grade student in Virginia Beach, Va., could be expelled for the rest of the school year for shooting an airsoft gun with a friend in his yard as they waited for the bus to come.

Khalid Caraballo, 12, and his friend, Aidan, were suspended for “possession, handling and use of a firearm” because they “shot two other friends who were with them while playing” with the airsoft guns, WAVY-TV reported.

Caraballo answered “no, sir,” when asked if he took the toy gun to the bus stop or to school.

“We were in our yard. This had nothing to do with school,” the student said.

Caraballo’s mother, Angel, said being punished for “possession, handling and use of a firearm” was “pretty harsh” for a toy that she bought for $25.

Tim Clark, Aidan’s father, told the news station that the school neglected to use common sense in the incident that occurred off school property.

  1. Essentially this school district has announced it can do anything it wants to any student for things done anywhere, anytime and away from school. Not good.
