Pop Tart liberation: Maryland state senator proposes ‘Toaster Pastry Gun Freedom Act’

Maryland kids will soon be able to eat Pop Tarts in peace.

A Maryland state senator has proposed a bill that would prevent kindergarten students from being punished by school officials for crafting a Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.


It’s too bad that it has come to this.

    I drew so many pictures of planes shooting other planes in grade school, I thought I was the Red Baron.

      I was always sketching images of the Gulf War in grade school. The weird towers, the night vision of the tracers flying through the air, tanks. Wasn’t an issue that short of a time ago.

        Exactly, every guy in my class drew tanks.

    Pop tart?!

    These kids do understand if they go with the “toaster strudel” they can use the icing packet to just draw a gun on the thing, right?

    Ashame we’ve gotten to this point and that lawmakers will have to spend their time proposing laws to counter blatant ignorance, but I say yay fighting back!

  • Clorinda Madsen

    The best part about this is that the law mandates counseling for any school official who mistakes a fake gun, be it pastry or toy, for a real gun to help them sort out reality.

    Good luck trying to legislate ignorance … you are going to be busy!

    Thank God these teachers didn’t teach at my Chicago grade school in the ’50’s; especially during recess in the school yard. They would’ve called in the National Guard!

    sadly it is at that point. Children being mocked, belittled, yelled at, threatened and bullied, along with school suspensions for things like pop-tart guns, references to Bublle Blowing guns, wearing any clothing with a Christian or American theme on it, etc. These people have either lost their minds or are just this desperate to keep us from discussing the absolute lack of education in our education system

    You know, every stupid new thing the libbies do that we laugh at because it is so ridiculous and out of this world, comes back to bite us as an actual law, regulation, or accepted form of behavior. Are there no limits?

    I’d rather it would be a “Freedom from government-run schools” act.

    A regular pastry gets you suspended, but if it is fruit filled then it is considered “loaded” and you may be expelled.
