What do you think would happen in a public school if a 5th grader answered that he wanted to be a gunsmith when he grows up?
Would Child Protective Services be called?
Would they demand he be sent to councelling?
Would he be expelled?

Well at my daughter's school (Private Christian) his photo was displayed with all the other kids on the board that wanted to be "Dolphin trainers" and "Clowns" and "Probation Officers".
I thought it was great and laughed when I saw it. I don't know the parents but hope to get to know them. I'm just guessing they are pro gun.

So what do you think would happen in a Public School if a child dared turn in a paper stating he wanted to be a "Gunsmith"?

Possibly he would be sent to the Death Camp of Tolerance?

Actually, I would think that nothing would come of it. Gunsmithing is a perfectly legitimate occupation, and any action the school took against the child could see them smacked with a big lawsuit. Of course, they might gamble that Billy Joe's parents aren't the type who would get lawyered up.

Of course, I wonder what would happen if a kid said he/she wanted to be a stripper, or to own a porno shop.

In my school, nothing would really come of it, but you would probably be looked at like you're a psycho.

I wouldn't be surprised if a "counselor" was assigned to speak to him/her. In a big city school anyways.
