Texas School Asks Invasive Questions About Guns In Homes

posted on October 1, 2015

Students in a journalism class at Hendrickson High School in Pflugerville, Texas, were given a survey requesting information on their parents’ political views and whether they keep firearms in the home. The questions addressed the number of guns in the household as well as their purpose. 

Local gun store owner and gun-rights activist Michael Cargill broke the news, noting that the topic of guns “… is a great conversation for kids to have in the classroom … but the questions that concern me are the ones that ask …” about number of guns and political affiliation. “That’s private,” he concluded. 

Some parents had harsher words. “Doesn’t matter if it’s a journalistic survey, it crosses the line,” said one. “This wouldn’t be answered in my home, and this is the reason that any poll similar to it is not accurate.”
