Liberals Trample on the First Amendment to Undermine the Second


Anti-gun liberals in West Virginia went for a twofer when they arrested an eighth grade student for wearing a National Rifle Association (NRA) T-shirt to school back in 2013. Just as an aside, I and most of my elementary school classmates back in the late 1950s would be on death row if we were kids now. We didn’t just wear the T-shirts with guns on them to school, we brought the real thing—our guns—to school for show-and-tell (as did a couple of girls in our class). My how things have changed in America, and not for the better.

In arresting the eighth-grade defender of the Second Amendment, liberal school officials and law enforcement personnel managed to trash both the First and Second Amendments with the same absurd act. If you can believe it, the boy wearing the offensive T-shirt was charged with two counts of obstructing the education process. Education process? Surely the education officials were kidding. Had the student been charged with obstructing the indoctrination process the charges might have been warranted. But the education process is that long-forgotten concept wherein American public school students once learned about such things as freedom of speech and other aspects of the U.S. Constitution—aspects such as the First and Second Amendments.

Predictably, a judge dismissed the charges against the eighth grader, showing both better sense and better knowledge of the Constitution than education officials. Never-the-less, not to be outdone by the law, common sense, or the presiding judge, public school officials still required the boy to serve a one-day suspension. You read that right. A bunch of leftwing bullies in Logan County, West Virginia couldn’t admit their error and just let it go.
