GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — A deaf preschooler in Nebraska was asked to change the way he signs his name after being told the sign looked like a gun, reported KETV-TV (http://www.ketv.com/news/local-news/Deaf-boy-asked-to-change-sign-language-name/-/9674510/16409966/-/1470ejhz/-/index.html).

</aside> The parents of 3-year-old Hunter Spanjer claim the school district in Grand Island, Neb., told them their son's sign language name violated its "weapons in school" policy and asked them to modify it, Grand Island TV station KGIN reported.

Hunter's family was shocked. And upset.

"Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous," Hunter's grandmother, Janet Logue, told KGIN. "This is not threatening in any way."

The Nebraska chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union sent the district a letter asking officials to reconsider their stance, according to the Facebook page "Let This Deaf Child Keep His Sign Language Name" set up by Hunter's family.

The page already has more than 8,300 likes.

Grand Island Public Schools has since relented after initially refusing to discuss the case.

Late Tuesday, Officials issued a statement saying they will not require any hearing impaired students to change their sign language name.

At least the school has backed down and reversed course on its stupidity.

So...making a hand gesture that looks like a gun is now considered bringing a weapon to school? In that case I will instruct my children to mimic writing on a sheet of paper and handing it in as their homework.

It's the absurdity of zero tolerance policies.

Kids are getting suspended for bringing in a toy army man holding a tiny gun.

So, what happens if your name contains three sets of six letters each. We've got to stop satan. Really.

No joke, it's actually the Texas Longhorn symbol, but reverse it where you can see your thumb touching your middle and ring finger. Just point it at someone, and it means in sign language, "bullshit"
