Public school administrators are becoming more laughably absurd every day. Grades are declining, kids can’t meet grade-level standards, drug use and teen pregnanacy are rampant, gangs hold students and teachers alike in virtual hostage situations, and so what do they do?
Pick on the 85-pound girl wearing a NRA tee shirt. This is a great use of your time, Principal Fricker.
Sophomore Haley Bullwinkle said when she wore her NRA shirt to Canyon High School last month, she landed in the principal’s office for violating the school’s dress code that forbids offensive, violent or divisive clothing.
“They were treating me like I was a criminal,” she said. “I was not allowed to wear that at school because it promoted gun violence.”
The shirt, which was a gift from Bullwinkle’s father when he became a card-carrying member of the NRA, features a buck, an American flag and a hunter’s silhouette. It also has the words “National Rifle Association of America: Protecting America’s Traditions Since 1871” written in the center.
The article goes on to note that the school has a drill team that twirls rifles, and the school’s mascot is a Comanche, a tribe of Native Americans known for their bloodlust, including torturing their victims to death.
