Going ballistic over a pea-shooter
The Feb. 2 Metro article “Va. student expelled for shooting pellets” stirred some old memories. When I was a student in New York in the 1950s, almost every boy had a similar “weapon” — they were called pea-shooters. A student caught using this nefarious device would have it confiscated and would possibly be sent to detention after school, but nothing more than that for such a trivial offense.
