It’s a shame that they have to go to court over this. Sadly, it’s necessary. Do you see how infringement of the 2nd Amendment leads to infringement of the 1st?
A pair of sophomores at Kettle Moraine High School sued their principal in federal court a day after she told them they had to cover the T-shirts they wore to school because the shirts depicted guns.
Their lawsuit, filed in federal court last week, contends the First Amendment protects their right to show support for the Second Amendment and asks a judge to order the school not to prevent them from wearing the shirts.
A week earlier, a middle-schooler sued his assistant principal in Neenah over the same issues, but a different gun-themed shirt.
Both cases come a few months after Markesan High School settled a similar case that made national headlines in 2018. After a judge granted the students a preliminary injunction, the principal agreed not to restrict Matthew Schoenecker from wearing shirts with guns or weapons if they don’t advocate or imply violent or illegal use of guns.
WI Carry Inc., a gun-rights advocacy group, supported all four plaintiffs. President Nik Clark said he was surprised Kettle Moraine and the Neenah middle school didn’t take notice of the outcome from Markesan.
“There is so much demonization of guns by public schools (these prohibitions as just one example) but also public schools SANCTIONED multiple walkouts the past couple years to call for gun control, but a kid can’t wear a shirt showing his gun pride?” Clark said in an email.
Liberals have little respect for anything in Constitutiin.
This should be settled law by now and those principals should be held personally liable for infringing on the student’s 1st amendment rights.
Good thing they weren’t ridiculing Christianity, right Kevin? Or proclaiming their affection for Satan.
What are you talking about? Affection for sin, lawlessness, and Satan is present in any public school everyday by denying Jesus. Christianity is constantly ridiculed with celebration.
Just following Pasty’s Authoritarian Rule #4: A readiness to stifle or limit civil liberties of opponents, including media.
Looks like someone’s mother let the troll out of his basement room.
>“There is so much demonization of guns by public schools (these prohibitions as just one example) but also public schools SANCTIONED multiple walkouts the past couple years to call for gun control, but a kid can’t wear a shirt showing his gun pride?”
This is a spotlight on how intolerant the Left actually is. Let the kids demonize guns, but do not let other kids praise guns.
If the administration doesnt want gun T-shirts, then get school uniforms.
Solves the problem immediately.
Gee, Patsy….you “forgot” to criticize the AUTHORITARIAN principal (whose District will be paying a bunch of legal fees shortly).
But she’s your kind of AUTHORITARIAN, so…….
And she’s also a liar. The school handbook does not have the language she “cited” while arbitrarily stomping on the Constitutional rights of the student.
Agan……your kind of AUTHORITARIAN.
