Judge Decides Household Tools are Assault Weapons

Only a liberal would bring pliers to a gunfight.

That’s effectively what happened when U.S. District Judge Robert Dow Jr. dismissed a complaint filed on behalf of a Chicago teacher who was suspended for bringing a household toolbox to class for a lesson about tools.

In rejecting the complaint, the judge said officials at Washington Irving Elementary School correctly defined the tools as “weapons.”

Chicago judge?  Sure.  Because the Chicago legal system has criminal violence entirely under control, except for the pliers-wielding teachers.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Regarding the post title: Are you kidding me? It’s about damn time the *teachers* got charged. Let the unions stew on this for a bit. Let this teacher go to jail briefly, and then watch how fast the sniveling attitude that anything that could make some liberal wet their pants is a weapon changes.
