When 8th grade student Jared Marcum got dressed for school this morning, he says he had no idea that his pro-Second Amendment shirt would initiate what he calls a fight over his First Amendment rights.
It was the image of a gun printed on Jareds t-shirt that sparked a dispute between a Logan Middle School teacher and Jared, that ended with Jared suspended, arrested and facing two charges, obstruction and disturbing the education process, on his otherwise spotless record.
Jareds father Allen Lardieri says hes angry he had to rush from work to pick his son up from jail over something he says was blown way out of proportion.

Get a lawyer. Threaten to sue the retards at the school and they’ll stop this BS. It works for everyone else, it SHOULD work for Americans. Maybe not but it’s worth a shot.
Libs have even infiltrated and taken over (at least the schools) West Virginia? Shows you just how insidious the b***ards are. They MUST be stopped.
Teach that worthless school how to spell “lawsuit”.
Make them hate that word.
And make them pay.
Public schools are slime.
Disturbing the education process is a crime?
The school would be totally ok with him wearing a shirt with a f*g flag or two dudes kissing on it though.
Its disgusting how low our society has sunk”
Where is the ACLU?
They won’t care because none of them will have to pay out of their own pockets.
disturbing the education process is a charge?!?!?!?!
Defund the education system. I don’t care if you like watching your high school football team and you think the school is part of the community. I am sick of being responsible for funding these corrupt institutions. Defund it. Home schools, private schools, even charter schools are OK but no government education.
I’m thinking this kid’s college education is paid for.
“Get a lawyer. Threaten to sue the retards at the school and theyll stop this BS. It works for everyone else, it SHOULD work for Americans. Maybe not but its worth a shot.”
To sue you have to have a cause of action; being pissed-off won’t do. Also, it costs $5000 down and $500/hr to operate the legal system. The legal system is not usable unless you have a 3rd party paying the bills; like the government. If he were black, gay, Indian, etc. and it was a “hate” crime he could sue regardless. (I had a lawyer tell me that if I fit one of the protected categories he’d take the suit even if I was lying to him. He said the other side knows the government pocket has no bottom and he could force a settlement regardless of having a case or not.)
This poor child was assaulted by a sick teacher and harassed using state-sponsored violence and threats.
The teacher deserves no less than a terrifying response.
Everybody needs to send their kids in Guns & Roses shirts.
Many school policies do prohibit images of weapons on clothing, but without that explicit prohibition in writing, the school is legally in the wrong. I'll bet they will have a written policy on that by the start of the next school year if not sooner. As the father, I would (1) sue, as much as I despise most lawsuits, and (2) buy a wardrobe with a broad range of messages to push the buttons of the liberal whiners in that school: Second Amendment quotes, NRA quotes, and everything pro-freedom but without images that violate the letter of the dress code.
There are so many options, many of which are particularly fun or educational. If I stayed in that school, I'd do it - and warn the disgustingly wimpy teacher not to retaliate in grades or in any other manner unless she wants to face years of lawsuits. Classmates should learn where Molon Labe comes from - it adds to the coolness of independence and of the ability to defend yourself instead of waiting for the police to come with your toe tag. Classmates should learn the history and modern meaning of the Gadsden flag - again high in coolness.
Advice to father: Sue, sue, and then sue again. Make ‘em want to host a Friends of the NRA banquet in the school cafeteria one weekend...
I have a Massachusetts quarter with an imprint of an ARMED Minuteman on the back. . .so. . .isn’t that having an image of a weapon on school grounds and illegal?
I keep the quarter in my wallet for situations where the topic comes up and all the brain-dead students and “teachers” rally on about how we should have NO images whatsoever of weapons—no exceptions!
