This story shows that we don’t have to bow to the pressure’s of political correctness and anti-gun hysteria in our schools. This 18-year-old high school student should be an inspiration to gun rights supporters everywhere.
The Chicago high school senior refused to remove a t-shirt that depicted the outline of an AK47 on it and bore the words “TeamAK”. The school told him he would either have to turn the shirt inside-out or face a suspension from school. Chris Borg chose suspension and then fought for his rights to wear the shirt before the school’s council.
He argued that the school’s decision was a violation of his 1st amendment rights, but the school demanded he remove the shirt because they argued it was “unsafe” and “disruptive”.
The school originally stated that it would not lift the suspension or investigate further in the matter, but after Chris Borg spoke before school officials and gave sound reasoning for his side of the argument the school “changed its mind about the rectitude” of the suspension.
“I’m ecstatic,” Borg told the Chicago Tribune. “I’m happy. I wasn’t trying to push buttons or be provocative. I was just trying to assert my First Amendment rights.”
The school’s superintendent, Bruce Law, noted that in future the district will make more effort to investigate the imagery on any clothing that officials flag up before moving directly to disciplinary action, admitting that Borg’s t-shirt does not promote violence or illegal activity.
“A lawful activity like a gun club or a military institution is different than an unlawful activity that promotes violence,” Law said.
“If you had a T-shirt promoting a guitar club you’d have guitar on it,” he added.
The “zero tolerance” policy school’s have implemented does nothing to make students safer and everything to attack gun rights. Borg makes some great arguments in his speech before the school council members, and it’s surprising they listened, seeing as it was common sense and all.
