New York high school student suspended for NRA pro-2nd Amendment T-shirt
Fox News ^ | Published March 12, 2014 | Perry Chiaramonte

Posted on 03/13/2014 12:38:07 AM PDT by Slings and Arrows

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 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.”

Grand Island High School. Administered by fascists.

New York public schools have already redacted second amendment from education materials?

Yes. Promotion of homosexual perversion and infanticide is okay.

Test a shirt that says 1st & 2nd Amend shall not be infringed. Put tape over 2nd and infringe on the 1st?

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.

“There was pretty much nothing in the policy about guns.”
- Shane’s 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.

Should have been a rainbow shirt that said “ok to be a queer kid”.

Then the teacher would have given him an automatic A+

Instead of "Dikes on Bikes," how about starting a group called "Fags with Mags." The tee-shirt logo could be the dark silhouette of a pistol with a rainbow colored magazine dropping out of the grip. The school administrators would be so conflicted that they would do nothing.

If it had a picture of a gun on it he could have taken the shirt off and used the gun to kill people. I have no problem here in Oz wearing a “Guns And Moses” t-shirt honoring Israel.

IIRC, NY State had a Constitutional Convention in the 1930s in which it repealed its version of the U.S. Second Amendment. Any corrections will be appreciated.

When defending these policies, we get told that they are doing this to create an environment where children will not “want to use guns.”

Yet, these same people fight to teach sex to kindergardners and they claim that this will help the children learn responsible sex....

Things that make you go hmmmm....

They don’t sell shirts, as far as I could see. But they have a strong anti-bully message: Pick on someone your own caliber.

Should go well in a high school!

I really don't understand the sexually confused but I know these guys because some of them used to check in to a gun group I belong to. No shrieking victim types. Someone referred to them as “The gang that can't shoot straight” and they thought it was hilarious.

I wonder what the little totalitarian police state dems will do to us next...

They want ‘deniers’ thrown in jail... then the NRA shirt...

From the link:
An assistant philosophy professor at Rochester Institute of Technology has proposed a bold plan to settle the debate on Global Warming. Lawrence Torcello wrote an essay suggesting that scientists who fail to fall in line with global warming alarmists should be charged with criminal negligence, and possibly even be thrown in jail.
