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 as an “inappropriate” violation of the school’s dress code.

All over America, schools are exercising what they call zero-tolerance policy to suspend young children packing “suggestions of guns.” Behind this practice is the idea that populations can be conditioned against owning real guns. Start early, indoctrinate the kids and society will change.
Gun control advocates are urging social networking sites like Facebook and Instagram to make changes that would crack down on gun-related pages and posts, which anti-firearm groups say are facilitating illegal gun sales and trades.
American educators are on the lookout for a new and growing danger to America’s schoolchildren: “Level 2 lookalike firearms.” That’s bureaucratic-educator speak for a finger.

On Monday, the Supreme Court rejected two National Rifle Association challenges to laws that ban handgun permits for people under 21.
A bill that would allow South Carolinians to carry guns openly or concealed without first receiving the State’s sanction through a permit was killed by Republicans. It failed to advance out of the State’s Judiciary Committee.
