Airsoft gun ‘like’ on social media gets Ohio student suspended

An Ohio middle school student was suspended last week after he “liked” another student’s Instagram photo showing an airsoft pellet gun and the caption, “Ready.”

The parents of Zachary Bowlin, a student at Edgewood Middle School, received the 10-day suspension notice Thursday, which accused Zachary of “liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence,” a local Fox affiliate reported.

“I was livid,” father Marty Bowlin told the station. “He never shared, he never commented, never made a threatening post, anything on the site — just liked it.”

Mr. Bowlin said Zachary and his friends like to play with airsoft guns often.
