New York Educators Punish Student For Wearing NRA Shirt


NRA shirt

A high school sophomore in Grand Island, N.Y., recently had his 1st Amendment rights violated by educators who viewed his promotion of his 2nd Amendment rights an “inappropriate” violation of the school’s dress code.

Grand Island High School student Shane Kinney, 16, is an avid outdoorsman and, along with his parents, a member of the National Rifle Association. He recently received a one-day in-school suspension after a school official deemed his shirt a threat to the educational process because it was emblazoned with logos for the firearm advocacy group and two hunting rifles.

“They said it was the guns,” Shane’s father told the local WGRZ-TV.

The young man was ordered to turn his shirt inside out. He refused. He was subsequently suspended because of a school policy that states: “Any student who refuses to do so or who… fails to comply shall be subject to discipline.”

According to reports, the school’s policy says nothing about depictions of firearms on clothing. The only thing even close is a passage that urges against garments that could be construed as promoting violent activities.

Kinney’s situation looks like yet another example of how the Nation’s public education system is being put to work to indoctrinate students against 2nd Amendment rights.
