John Glenn, the 'last true national hero,' dead at 95

Bill aims to make 'Pop-Tart' guns OK at school

Bill also covers finger guns, pencil guns, and drawing guns


Oklahoma State representative Sally Kern introduced the Common Sense Zero Tolerance Act on Wednesday.

Kern said the recent case of a Maryland boy who was suspended for chewing his Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun proves how much a law like this is needed.

Here are some of the actions protected by HB 2351.

1. Brandishing a pastry or other food which is partially consumed in such a way that the remnant resembles a weapon.

2. Possession of a toy weapon which is five (5) inches or less.

3. Possession of a toy weapon made of plastic or wood snap-together building blocks.

4. Using a finger or hand to simulate a weapon.

5. Vocalizing imaginary firearms or munitions.

6. Wearing articles of clothing or accessories that support or advance Second Amendment rights or organizations.

The bill goes on to say its passage is “necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety.”

If passed, HB 2351 would go into effect July1st, 2014.
