Nevada Considers Legalizing ‘Pop-Tart’ Guns In Schools

Nevada Republicans have introduced a bill that would legalize Pop-Tart guns, finger guns and other non-lethal non-firearms in the state’s elementary schools.
“A little plastic gun that small is not going to be mistaken for a real gun,” Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler told the state Assembly’s education committee on Wednesday, according to KOLO News.
To drive the point home, a supporter of the bill treated members of the committee to tasty Pop-Tarts to observe how harmless they are, a reference to a case two years ago in Maryland where an 8-year-old boy was suspended after nibbling a cherry Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun. (RELATED: ‘Toaster Pastry Gun Freedom Act’ Proposed In Maryland)
The bill, AB 121, wouldn’t just bar school staff from punishing students for wielding toy guns made of plastic or toaster pastries. It would also protect students from being punished for ”simulating a firearm or dangerous weapon” or “wearing clothing or accessories that depict a firearm or dangerous weapon.”
