Well, if a T shirt can get you arrested now, I am going to have to change my daughter's name by the time she is old enough for school!

    Does this mean I can't wear my Obama Sux hat? Just remember that "The more you complain the longer god lets you live". The Doomsday Peppers shows are begining to make sence. Scary. :nono: Later,

    I was waiting for when you had a boy and you called him Marlin. Even with the anti-gun crowd his name would be good to go. "sir, is your son named after a Rifle manufacturer?" "no, I love deep sea fishing."

    OMG this is a GIFT. Talk about LUCK. Find a good attorney, and OWN that school! Jared may be able to retire on his award, and never have to work a day in his life. Nothing like this ever happens to me.

    Or you could name your son after a true firearms design pioneer . . . "Kimber, meet your new little brother . . . Stoner" :tooth:
    That's all I got.

    Now, I can see them looking at you funny if you named a kid "Barack"

    I've met SGK, he's too short on melanin to name a son barack :nono: :tooth:

    My nephew David took on the Beaverton Oregon school district in a similar situation over getting suspended for wearing a T shirt I gave him, the one with the apochryphal "Hitler" quote about gun registration. He got interviewed by two TV stations, and made the school system back down and issue a public apology for suspending him. Then he did it again, with a home-made shirt that said "Marriage is for Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve". They grumbled about that one, but the school officials didn't feel like getting spanked by a 17-year-old kid again!

    Billy, after watching the clip and getting over my initial shock...I was wondering where you bought your "Obama Sucks" cap!

    It is beyond belief that someone can get arrested for an NRA t-shirt. This is progresso-lib harassment, pure and simple.

    Forget NRA T shirts and hoplophobic teachers.

    Students should be taught in the nude. Their innate curiosity and the irresistible appeal of ever-developing student bodies would all but eliminate dropping out of high school, and the peer pressure to be fit and hot would solve childhood obesity. I should be paid for ideas like this.

    Yeah this was pretty dumb. Some teacher overreacting because a student didn't respect his not existent Authoritah! Rather than backing down, decided to escalate things.

    Well, he went back to school today and wore the same shirt! He wasn't alone, about 100 other kids wore pro gun shirts in support of free speech.

    Good to see people taking a stand on this. Totally ridiculous.

    I just read this morning that the young man has been formally charged by a judge with obstructing an officer. If convicted he could face up to a $500.00 fine and a year incarceration. Q: What do you call a lawyer with an IQ less than 50? A: Your Honor.

    Words cannot even express the complete and utter disgust I have for those who trample and spit upon OUR Constitution but at the same time call a student wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt "freedom of expression".

    Was the responding officer's name Richard Cranium? What a buffoon.
