    Argument over NRA T Shirt gets 8th grader jailed

    On Thursday, the same day that the gun lobby and its supporters in Congress roundly defeated a package of gun control bills pushed by President Obama, eighth-grader Jared Marcum was suspended by Logan Middle School and briefly jailed for wearing a pro-NRA T-shirt.The T-shirt had picture of a gun, and school officials deemed it a violation of their dress code, which bans profanity, discrimination, or violence on clothing.
    Jared says the decision violates both his
    First Amendment right
    to free speech and his
    Second Amendment right
    to bear arms, and his father has vowed to "go to the ends of the earth" to clear his son's name which could include filing federal or civil lawsuits against the district, a lawyer for the family said.
    In
    West Virginia
    , Jared was told to stay home from school on Friday, and several friends who wore T-shirts with images of guns on them to school as a sign of solidarity were told to take them off. The day before, a dispute between Jared and a Logan Middle School teacher resulted in Jared being arrested and charged with obstruction and disturbing the education process, WOWK reported.

    I hope the school, administration, and teacher get the crap sued out of them.
