A high school student in upstate New York was suspended for wearing an NRA T-shirt that touted the second amendment after he refused to turn it inside out or cover the words with duct tape.
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 wasnt 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.

Grand Island High School. Administered by fascists.
Don’t take the BS, young adults. It’s your future these idiots are #ing with. Fight smart, fight responsibly, fight legally.
Meanwhile their sex-Ed is legally obscene
Oh, I hope so.
New York public schools have already redacted second amendment from education materials?
Test a shirt that says 1st & 2nd Amend shall not be infringed. Put tape over 2nd and infringe on the 1st?
it sure makes them nervous
I hope a hundred kids show up the next day wearing the same shirt.
Unionized thugs who love eating tax dollars and coddling freaks. Sue the s out the district and kill any new taxes or assessment they will try to sneak in to cover the losses
What next will they ban shirts with the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence since it mentions God???
I have no doubt that if a kid who’s into gang culture and had tattoos, all that kinda stuff, if he wore such a shirt they wouldn’t bother him for 1 second. Same Shirt, Different Day.
Oh, wait, they already did that.
cover it with duct tape?
Then I guess he would need to cite the FIRST ammendment in sharpie pen on top of the duct tape
OMG I wonder if this is the son of a friend of mine???
We need an NRA tshirt with a rainbow on it.
Get your T-shirts here!
But wear a shirt with a rainbow flag and you’ll be rewarded.
There was pretty much nothing in the policy about guns.
- Shanes father Wayne Kinney
Doesn’t matter if there was. This is about free speech, not guns. No one, as far as I know, has ever been shot by a picture. School policy does not trump the U.S. Constitution. The administration is really grasping at straws if they want us to believe that an NRA shirt is potentially going to cause disruption or violence. These people need to be replaced NOW!
Of course we are talking New York here so you that will never happen.
Be proud of your beliefs, dont back down, get in their faces. That’s the lesson we need to learn from the left. The future belongs to the activists.
