School says deaf boy's name sign looks too much like a gun

Quote:

Brace yourselves, because this is the dumbest thing you'll hear all day. The Grand Island (Neb.) school district is forcing a 3-year-old deaf boy to change the way he signs his name, because they say his gestures violate their weapons policy.

Preschooler Hunter Spanjer's personalized name sign is a registered sign with Signing Exact English -- a modified form of American Sign Language -- and involves extended index fingers that the district says resembles a gun. (And that sound you just heard was our heads exploding from all the stupid.) "We are working with the parents to come to the best solution we can for the child," a school spokesperson said. Um, how about letting him keep his own name?

Not only the dumbest thing I have heard all day, but that is a candidatefor Dumbest thing of the year. Some people have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much time on their hands.

I could see this in my state or Mass. but Neb.? I guess there is no stopping the nanny state and their desire to save us from ourselves.
