Shootout In Kansas Community

KSCB News - May 21, 2014 4:36 pm

While bringing a squirt gun to school can lead to suspension or worse in many parts of the U.S., an entire Kansas community plans to mark the end of this academic year with a massive water gun fight.

Those who don’t want to shoot it out at Lindsborg’s Swensson Park on May 30 are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and sit in designated safe areas, or dry zones, where they can watch without getting wet.

No water balloons will be allowed at the "School’s Out" party.

Six weeks ago, a Maine 10th-grader was suspended from school after a bright yellow squirt gun fell out of his backpack. In other places, students have been suspended for merely pointing their fingers in the shape of a gun.
