The zero-tolerance for common sense in schools has revealed itself again as a 16-year-old boy was suspended for simply wearing an NRA t-shirt which quoted from our constitution.
Does the shirt in the above picture look violent to you? Well according to the NY school those are the grounds for their request to have 16-year-old Shane Kinney either turn the shirt inside out or put tape over it.
In the past Shane has worn NRA t-shirts to school and has been told to put tape over the words, because apparently quoting from our 2nd amendment to the constitution is somehow offensive. But this time he stood his ground and refused to take off the shirt.
According to Fox News, Shane had to serve a one day in school suspension because of this offense:
Shane Kinney, a 16-year-old sophomore from Grand Island, located between Niagara Falls and Buffalo, served a one-day, in-school suspension Monday after he refused last Friday to turn his T-shirt inside out at the request of the vice principal at Grand Island High School. The shirt was emblazoned with the NRA logo and the words, “2nd Amendment Shall not be Infringed” across the back.
“Mr. Lauria [the vice principal] told me I had to either turn the shirt inside out or put duct tape over the words,” Shane Kinney told FoxNews.com. “I told them that I wasn’t going to do it. I had to sit in the suspension room and eat lunch alone until my father brought me a new shirt to school.”
Kinney, a card-carrying member of the NRA along with his parents, said he had worn the shirt to school before, along with others that were similar, and had been asked to put duct tape over the writing. He said he complied because he didn’t want to make waves.
This is not the first time a student has been suspended for wearing an NRA t-shirt to school and as long as schools are more focused on political correctness that actual student safety, it won’t be the last. The student in the link above almost faced a year in prison for wearing his t-shirt.
But what this story really reveals is a deeper issue. Anyone who knows anything about the NRA knows it has done more to promote gun safety and STOP gun violence than any other organization, so to say this shirt promotes gun violence even a little is laughable.
