GOA: Taking on Zero Tolerance in Schools

Taking on Zero Tolerance in Schools
supporting Jared Marcum against overzealous prosecutor
Gun Owners Foundation has come to the defense of a West Virginia teenager who is actually being prosecuted (a.k.a., persecuted) for his pro-gun views.
Jared Marcum wore a T-shirt to his Logan County middle school in West Virginia on April 18 — a decision that has since sparked a national controversy.
No, Jared’s T-shirt did not depict a Muslim beheading a victim while shouting Alahu Akhbar!  Such depictions of violence would violate the school’s dress code.
Jared’s T-shirt depicted a hunting rifle with the message: “Protect Your Right.”  And now, he faces up to a year in jail for doing so!
The outrageousness of this case has prompted the involvement of Gun Owners Foundation, which has agreed to help Jared pro bono.
It all began on April 18.  Everything was fine for the morning classes, but then the day went goofy when an anti-gun teacher confronted Jared in the lunch line and told him to turn his shirt inside out.
Jared pointed out that his shirt did not violate school policy.
The teacher sent Jared to the office where the same back and forth was repeated with the administration.  Then a police officer was summoned who ordered Jared to turn his shirt inside out.  Jared told the officer and the administration that he was doing nothing wrong.
According to the officer, Jared’s shirt constituted a terrorist threat.  He did not put that in his written report, but instead charged Jared with obstructing an officer (apparently Jared interrupted the officer while he was talking to the administration).
Jared was cuffed, charged and told that he could be fined up to $500 and spend up to a year in jail.  The prosecutor decided to press the charge, and a judge allowed the prosecution to proceed.
In a town of less than 2,000, what are the odds that at least five adults are this insane?  And all on the same day?
Zero Tolerance can be better understood as Zero Judgment.
Jared was suspended for a day.  When he returned to school, around 100 students wore similar shirts, and Jared wore the same shirt that fried the brains of five grownups two days earlier.  Nothing happened.  None of the students heard a word about their T-shirts.
Jared and his stepfather, Allen Ladieri, are to be commended for not backing down, and Gun Owners Foundation is actively supporting the case.
Usually, Gun Owners Foundation supports individuals appealing convictions on firearms charges that involve constitutional issues.  But we think that Jared’s case warrants special attention, as it involves both First and Second Amendment freedoms.
If we are not allowed to make pro-Second Amendment statements — all because somebody is offended — then we can count the days to when we’ll lose the freedoms enshrined in both Amendments.
If Jared prevails in this case, we may have finally reached a turning point regarding Zero Tolerance, which is one of the most insidious policies being inflicted on the nation’s young people.
ACTION:  While GOF is helping defend Jared Marcum pro bono, there are obviously significant costs involved.  So please help by making a tax-deductible contribution to Gun Owners Foundation.  You can assist in the Jared Marcum defense by giving a contribution to GOF here.

Welcome! No! Consfication. Middle Finger! Laws? Hypocrites! Red Hair! Criminals!

Welcome to Obama’s America

– In Obama’s America, teachers are suspended for lassoing students. TheDC’s Eric Owens reports:

“A history teacher at Schrade Middle School in Rowlett, Texas has been suspended because he lassoed a seventh-grader with a lariat. The unnamed teacher had some roping experience and wanted to teach students some basic lasso techniques that cowboys use on cattle drives, reports KHOU. He sought volunteers from the class, asked them to run, and then roped a 13-year-old student — around the neck. The student suffered bruises on his neck as a result. The boy’s distraught parents say that the bruises had gotten worse after a day, reports WFAA.”

Is this America? Or the Soviet Union? This country was founded by those who believe teachers should be able to lasso their students. No, none of the founders expressed their views on the matter precisely that way — or for that matter, at all. But they certainly didn’t condemn the practice, either. Therefore it is safe to assume they saw it as a bedrock principle of the nation.

Terrorists..What a wonderful job our Pissant Public School System is doing!!

The deadly rise of extremism in America continues as yet another child has been expelled from school for wielding a toy gun.

Yesterday we reported on the five-year-old in Massachusetts who faces suspension for building a small toy gun out of lego bricks and play-shooting his classmates.

Earlier this week, we reported on an incident that erupted when a discussion between two children about a toy nerf gun caused a lockdown and a massive armed police response at two elementary schools in the Bronx.

Earlier this month, a Long Island high school was also placed on lock down for 6 hours in response to a student carrying a toy nerf gun.

Another incident this month saw a five-year-old girl suspended after a three hour grilling, and described as a “terroristic threat”, when she brought a pink bubble gun to school.

Last week, a South Philadelphia elementary student was searched in front of classmates and threatened with arrest after she mistakenly brought a “paper gun” to school.

A 6-year-old boy was suspended from his elementary school in Maryland for making a gun gesture with his hand and saying “pow”.

Days later another two 6-year-olds in Maryland were suspended for pointing their fingers into gun shapes while playing “cops and robbers” with each other.

In Oklahoma, a five-year-old boy was also recently suspended for making a gun gesture with his hand.

A 13-year-old Middle School seventh grade student in Pennsylvania was also suspended for the same hand gesture.

When will this reign of terror end?

National police group: Obama’s plan ‘will do nothing’ about gun crimes

A major police benevolent association created to help families of officers killed in the line of duty has come out against President Obama’s gun control plan, declaring it “will do nothing” to stop the types of gun crimes officers face every day.

The Southern Police Benevolent Society, part of the national Police Benevolent Society, also endorsed private gun ownership, adding that it poses no threat to police or the public.
