Get a Rope!

Plastic pellet incident at Va. school ends in expulsion, assault charges: "The federal Gun-Free Schools Act mandates that schools expel students who take weapons, including hand guns, explosive devices and projectile weapons, to school. E-mail traffic among school officials showed they ruled that Mikel's plastic tube, which was fashioned from a pen casing, met the definition of a projectile weapon because it was 'used to intimidate, threaten or harm others.'

School officials in some e-mails referred to the plastic casing as a 'metal tube.' The plastic pellets were called 'B-Bs.'"
