A 14-year-old West Virginia middle school student wore an NRA T-shirt to school this spring. It had a picture of an AR-15 on it.
His teacher told him to turn the shirt inside-out. He refused. The teacher told the administration. The administration called the cops. A cop told him to turn it inside-out. He refused. The cops arrested him for obstructing justice — a criminal charge.
A judge has just thrown out the case. “The state of West Virginia is not interested in the possibility of creating a juvenile criminal record for this defendant.”
The mother of the boy says she will sue the people who did this to her son.
The case is one more example of tax-funded education run amuck. The anti-gun mania means that students may not even wear a T-shirt with an image of a gun on it. This is gun control taken to the next level.
The solution is not lawsuits. The solution is to pull children out of the tax-funded schools. But most parents refuse to take this step.
