Anti-gun/Anti-science insanity

This story is so maddening I almost don’t know where to begin.

A couple of kids in Amherst Mass spend time and money on a science fair project that shows how dangerous BB guns can be. Sounds like a good applied physics and engineering project to me. And very worth while because BB guns can be dangerous and more education about the dangers could prevent injures and maybe even save a life.

But nooooo! Their completed project is rejected. Why you ask? Because BB guns are too dangerous. I wonder how many of the accepted projects used HCL or NH4, or gasp, H2SO4, probably none, they might be dangerous. I myself entered a middle school science fair with a rocket! Thats right a fire breathing 300 mile an hour rocket! Do you suppose that would be dangerous? What kind of science do they study in Mass., Paper Mache? I have an idea! Why don’t we just forbid science all together. Wouldn’t the world be safer and isn’t safety the only thing that is truly important? I mean we don’t really need silly things like individual rights or privacy or exploration and science, we need safety. Safety for the children’s sake. And who better to keep us safe that the government.
