Score One for Free Speech About the NRA

California is known for being hostile toward guns, as evidenced by its litany of restrictive laws. But a couple of teenagers at Lodi High School came out on top of a verbal scuffle with a teacher over the fact that they were wearing NRA T-shirts.

The students donned the casual T’s that picture the NRA acronym on the left front breast of the shirt, and an array of colored ammunition shell casings in a depiction of the American flag on back.

Apparently an over-sensitive teacher took offense to the letters NRA, because he decided to school them in something other than history: his message was clear, guns are bad because they kill people.

But one child’s mother didn’t stand idly me for the extracurricular lesson. “I think he’s there to teach. I don’t think he’s there to discuss his personal beliefs,” the parent, Charlene Craig, told a CBS reporter after taking the complaint before the school board. “He basically yelled at her, telling her that she would be writing an essay if she disagreed with him.”

While her daughter was subjected to a verbal tirade, another student was sent to the principal’s office.

Lodi, like many schools in California, has a dress code that bars students from wearing attire than depicts guns or knives, among other things deemed reprehensible by the powers that be. Thing is, the shirts didn’t show any semblance of a gun on them.

That was the determining factor in the school board’s decision to agree that the history teacher crossed the line in this case.
