Oklahoma Legislator Introduces "Common Sense Zero Tolerance" Bill

Looking to protect imaginary, toy guns from overreacting administrators

Rep. Sally Kern said Wednesday her measure dubbed the Common Sense Zero Tolerance Act was in response to school districts having policies that are too strict or inflexible.
