I read that story last week. Utterly absurd. Definitely a commentary on the state of the public school system, as well as an insight into the statists' desire to completely disarm the citizenry in every way possible.

If I recall correctly, the folks at West Point (some of whom I know), had assured this fine Eagle Scout and his family that they will not be paying much attention to the decision of this ridiculous school system.

Yes, rather ridiculous. Good news about West Point though.
