Michigan High School Senior Targeted For NRA Shirt

posted on May 27, 2016

Another T-shirt, another teen in trouble. This time it was 18-year-old Andrew Eichorn, a senior at Flushing High School in Michigan. The shirt in question has an NRA logo on the front and the words “Keep Calm and Carry Guns” on the back. It was a Christmas gift for Eichorn, who has been around firearms his whole life and was instrumental in founding the skeet shooting team that he captains at school. 

On the day he wore it to school, Eichorn didn’t make it until third period before Assistant Principal Deb Goldstein requested he change it. Eichorn refused and he was asked to leave the school.

“I am extremely proud of Andrew for not giving in to the demands of Ms. Goldstein and am proud that he stood up for his rights and freedoms,” said Andrew’s dad Mark Eichorn. “We as a family have always taken our constitutional rights very seriously.”
