    What are you suprised, the Union will pony up and protect the teacher, the school district will settle and the DA will drop charges...

    I think a lawsuit big enough to pay for a college degree [6 years, maybe] is needed to make a point, and police dept. needs to have their hand spanked.

    a synapses of the story for those who don't click links:

    An 8th grade boy was suspended from school and arrested for disturbing the educational process for wearing an NRA shirt with a picture of a hunting rifle on it. The story says it is not against school policy and he did not become aggressive.

    -When I was in school, I think I might have had a shirt that didn't have a gun on it.-

    This is how the ruling class wants it; zero tolerance. If the ruling class remains in power, their policies (written and unwritten) remain in effect.

    Seriously, in today's America, if any of our kids walk out the door with an AR15 rifle image printed on their shirt and they enter a public school, who thinks they won't leave in handcuffs?

    No, it shouldn't be happening but it is and does every single day in America. We could fill a library with articles like this; kids arrested for playing Cowboys & Indians, children suspended for talking about a hunting trip, etc.

    After reading about children who nibble pop-tarts into the shape of a gun and are then punished under our zero tolerance rules, how can any parent allow their kid to go to school with such a t-shirt on and not expect an arrest later in the day?

    I wouldn't have expected the arrest, but I certainly would expect that my child was sent to the Principal's office or suspended. That is just the way it goes anymore. Hell, when I was a kid, we brought plastic guns to school all the time and played cowboys and Indians at recess. My grade school aged children aren't even allowed to bring a plastic knife to school to put cream cheese on their bagel.

    Sad, but that is the way it is and every parent with school age kids should know that.

    With rights come responsibility. Unless you live underground you'd know this could be a problem. I wear T's with gun slogans when I go out sometimes. But not everywhere and not all the time.

    8th Grader Suspended, Arrested Over NRA T-Shirt

    In New York I could believe it, but in West Virginia?

    If this was my son, he would never, ever return to the public school system.

    This is just too much. :fire: :fire:




    http://www.wowktv.com/story/22020264/8th-grade-student-arrested-over-gun-t-shirt

    It was the image of a gun printed on Jared's t-shirt that sparked a dispute between a Logan Middle School teacher and Jared, that ended with Jared suspended, arrested and facing two charges, obstruction and disturbing the education process, on his otherwise spotless record.

    That young man may just get a school-board funded scholarship to college. I hope.

    I can't even handle the "political correctness" of this country anymore.


    I bet if he would have been wearing a pro gay marriage shirt he would have been fine and simply "standing up for peoples rights"

    Holy smokes. Probably the same thing would happen in many school districts.

    I appreciate the balanced news report! Seriously, not bad.

    Oh yes! Tee shirts are dangerous. I had a red one that I caught rubbing on the barrel of my Glock.

    Something does not sound right with this story.

    While the school might be out on a limb by suspending him, how does that turn into an arrest for obstruction and disturbing the education process?

    So we hear/read these types of stories every single day now. How many families have ever filed and/or won a lawsuit over the whole zero tolerance lunacy?

    Any links to articles would be appreciated about a family winning a lawsuit because little Johnny made a lego gun and was suspended, arrested, punished, etc.

    I would suggest that anyone who doesn't like public education and their rules make the financial sacrifice of private education - if you can find one of those you agree with. There is also home school.

    This is what happens when you pay others (teachers) to educate your children, but allow someone else entirely (school board) to make the rules with which, and on what policies, your educational tax dollars are spent.

    I would make it a point to wear a pro-2A shirt or gunmaker shirt without a gun on it every day for the rest of the year.

    And yet, I suspect the vast majority of U.S. school systems would have no problems with a student wearing a T-shirt commemorating a mass murderer like Mao or Che Guevara.

    The young man's T-shirt was pretty innocuous on the surface, and didn't even meet any of the criteria for violations according to the County's dress code policy.

    We have really rounded the bend on statist stupidity and thought control.

    Lots of attacks on "PC" or "ruling class"

    It is only offensive until it is your group that is being picked on.

    How about a shirt that says Christians can't kill in war because of all the crap Jesus said, you know, the CHRISTian part?

    2 sides of the story.

    No distractions in school really is a good policy.

    Where is the ACLU on this one? This is not even truly a gun rights issue: this is a bona fide 1A issue which this school system apparently is too blind to see- and represents what is slowly happening all over the country. Not only should this young man and his family fight this one all the way, but I would expect/demand some support from both our national 2A organizations, and (although almost certainly won't happen due to the often hypocritical nature of many of these) ALL of the pro 1A organizations such as the ACLU.

    We have been talking for months about getting pro 2A candidates; clearly we have to appeal to the multitude of other rights that are being progressively encroached upon (ironic pun properly applied!).

    Arrested for disturbing the educational process? If that was a crime back when I was in school, I would have got the chair!

    Not if there is no school policy against it, he was not disruptive, etc. This is a PUBLIC school. Smells like a 1A matter to me, IMHO.
