A 16-year-old Florida high school student says he's been suspended for three days after wrestling a gun away from a classmate on a school bus.

According to FOX affiliate WFTX-TV, the 15-year-old suspect took out the loaded gun and pointed it at another student. He was charged with possession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. The hero student {C}

was then given an "emergency suspension" as part of the school's zero-tolerance policy on fights involving a weapon. So how can a student be punished for protecting his fellow students? Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the situation this morning on Fox and Friends. He said it's part of a larger problem, of "putting society in a position where you're afraid to do the right thing," and he pointed to the shocking story about a California nurse who said she was prohibited from giving CPR to a dying woman.

He said "something's very wrong" with the "P.C. police" in schools when you have kids getting suspended for mimicking having a gun and students getting automatic suspensions for trying to defend others.
