State Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, said the proposed bill is designed to bar â€śoverreactionsâ€ť under zero-tolerance policies designed to keep weapons out of public schools.
The bill cleared by a state House panel on Wednesday would bar school districts from suspending students for â€śbrandishing a partially consumed pastry or other food itemâ€ť bitten into the shape of a weapon or â€śpossessing a toy firearm or weapon made of plastic snap-together building blocks.â€ť
Importantly, the legislation would also prohibit schools from punishing students who wear clothing (such as tee-shirts) that depict firearms or organizations such as the NRA.
