Skip to comments.Workbook teaches kids that Second Amendment includes gun control

A social studies workbook, used in an Illinois public middle school, is generating controversy among gun rights supporters because it claims that the Second Amendment permits only strictly regulated, registered gun ownership.
A screenshot of the workbook was first posted to the Facebook page for Illinois Gun Owners Rights. It provides the following description of the Second Amendment:

They’re falling back on their first amendment right to lie to kids.
Just like “The First Amendment permits only strictly regulated, approved speech”?
Wonder if they would approve of the above statement?
Lexington and Concord
Two other words:
It doesn’t matter who approved it. The fact that Leftists are in control of our schools tells me that entire generations of children are going to be indoctrinated to believe that gun rights don’t exist or are seriously curtailed. When they get older, and a school shooting or mass murder happens somewhere, the media will parrot the gun control lines, and these kids, now young adults, will wonder, “I thought that’s how it always was? Just do it!” At which point, gun rights will be stripped wholesale without so much as a whimper. I pray I’m long dead before that day comes.
And as every FReeper knows (and every commie regrets), without the Second Amenddment, the First Amendment can become meaningless overnight.
oops, looks like I amended the 2nd Amendment w/ an extra “d”
Anyone who starts a sentence that way when describing the Constitution has absolutely NO understanding of the Constitution.
Yet another reason...
LOL! I’m surprised it didn’t say “...are ‘granted’ the right....”.
Yes they would. They do not want free speech either, just permitted speech.
Other than home schooling (which we did), we combat this crap by making sure sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, and all their little friends get some quality range time with .22s and tin cans.
Keep the gun culture alive!
As written, I don't believe the 2A could be interpreted as saying anything about "certain" weapons, saying anything about registration, or saying anything about prisons.
Illinois is corrupt and broke too.
As the parent of a murdered child, this is asinine. My son was beat to death with a 2 ft section of fence post with in 2-300 yards from home behind the old ice plant just up over the RR tracks. Just so some Sociopath could SEE what it felt like to kill. Bad plea deal, he now walks a free man in TN or where ever he wants to go. I CCW! GET OUT OF MY 2nd A rights, I am his number 1 target.
PUT YOUR SELF IN THIS MOTHERS SHOES for just one minute. 20 years of appeals, 4 years in the trial phases, the 24th year of Nikki’s death is upon us. Still NO JUSTICE 2 JURIES handed down!
CALL TO ACTION. This 8 year old little girl needs Justice. Please READ HE HAS RUN OUT ALL APPEALS AND THERE IS DNA PROOF! 20 years of appeals!
Ashely Nichole Read raped, strangled to death with her own shoe laces and body thrown in river, 2 juries have handed down the Death Penalty, all appeals have run out. 20 years on Death Row, = NO JUSTICE FOR Nikki or her mom Debbie
This CHILD RAPIST/KILLER HAS RUN OUT OF ALL 20 YRS OF APPEALS, DNA PROOF, 2 juries have handed down the same sentence. TN GOV Halsam still has NOT SET AN EXECUTION DATE OR SIGNED A DEATH WARRANT. firstname.lastname@example.org 615 741-2001
I have stated several times ALL HIS APPEALS HAVE RUN OUT AND DNA PROVED HE DID IT! SO YOU LAWYERS DON’T GET YOU PANTIES IN A WAD ABOUT HIS RIGHTS HE HAS HAD THEM ALL TO THE LETTER OF THE LAW. IT IS TIME FOR JUSTICE. HE HAS HAD ALL THE LAW RIGHTS AND APPEALS the LAW ALLOWS AND MORE! INCLUDING MENTAL EVALS!
I am so sorry.
My heart aches for you. You and your family are in my prayers.
The man who murdered my best friend is in for life but he has sent his girlfriend to find me and ‘talk to me’.
Maybe they are using the rules in Illinois. However, if they are they should not use Second Amendment to explain it, but say, this is how the Second Amendment works, but here in Illinois, we do it this way and explain the state law. That would be the fair way to do it, but of course, liberals don’t play fair.
Well GailA, you have left me at a loss for words.
