Take ten paces, turn, and draw a picture

Article: School Suspends Boy for Sketching Gun

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - School officials suspended a 13-year-old boy for sketching what looked like a gun, saying the action posed a threat to his classmates..(School) district spokesman Terry Locke said the crude sketch was "absolutely considered a threat," and that threatening words or pictures are punishable.

Keep in mind. We're not talking about "drawing" a gun from a holster. Nope. "Drawing" a gun on paper. If the kid had a sausage rather than a picture of a gun, they'da had to pry that sausage from his cold, dead hands.

A 12 year old British boy has been arrested and charged for throwing a two-inch long cocktail sausage at another person.

So, my question is:
Is there any possible way to charge Bush on trying to attack a helpless pretzel, by indeed choking on it....?

Wouldn't it be great if he actually was protesting guns in the first by making a picture of a gun and simply hadn't got to the red "no" circle and line?
