DES MOINES, Iowa -- A Des Moines girl was suspended after school officials said she violated their weapons policy.
Jazmine Martin, 12, brought an empty shotgun shell to school on Monday, a souvenir from a summer vacation to South Dakota. The shell was empty and had the word "blank" written on the front.
"We went to South Dakota and went to the Circle B Ranch," said Chenoa Martin, Jazmine's mother. "There's a show of the old West -- a stampede. Had a gun shoot-out and stuff like that. When they fire their rifles, they do it into the crowd. It posed no risk."
"We went around the building to look for them and they said they don't care if we have them so we picked up all of them," said Jazmine Martin.

We have imbeciles like this running our schools and then wonder why we're getting the crap kicked out of us by the rest of the world in test scores.
