A Gresham woman has filed suit to stop Multnomah County’s fledgling gun control law, saying county commissioners overstepped their bounds by making it apply to all cities in the county.

As WW first reported, Roxanne Ross and her lawyer, Bruce McCain, believe the county’s gun control laws—requiring residents to lock up guns near minors and prohibiting carrying a loaded weapon in public, among other things—violate state laws. They filed the lawsuit Friday in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

Cowboy-style cap gun gets 5-year-old suspended from school in Calvert County

A kindergartner who brought a cowboy-style cap gun onto his Calvert County school bus was suspended for 10 days after showing a friend the orange-tipped toy, which he had tucked inside his backpack on his way to school, according to his family and a lawyer.

The child was questioned for more than two hours before his mother was called, she said, adding that he uncharacteristically wet his pants during the episode. The boy is 5 — “all bugs and frogs and cowboys,” his mother said.

“I have no problem that he had a consequence to his behavior,” said the mother, who asked that her name be withheld to protect her son’s privacy.

“What I have a problem with is the severity,” she said, and the way it was handled.

The family’s attorney appealed the suspension late Thursday, asking that the action be reversed and the child’s record be expunged.

If the punishment stands, it would become part of the boy’s permanent school record and keep him out of classes the rest of the school year, the family said. He would miss his end-of-year kindergarten program at Dowell Elementary School in Lusby.

The issue will be examined at a disciplinary conference Friday.

This story wins the dubious disturbing-story-of-the-day  trophy for a lot of reasons, but the most disgusting is the utter failure of the adults to protect this little boy. The indoctrination of our children has got to be exposed and stopped, it’s nothing short of  child abuse – scaring the hell out of kids , not educating them. These parents should fight this tooth and nail and be joined by other parents and community members. ~ Beesha
