Conn. Fatherís Stunning Claim: Sonís School Is Teaching That Americans Donít Have the Right to Bear Arms
A Connecticut father is accusing his son's school district of teaching children that Americans do not have a constitutional right to bear arms. Steven Boibeaux of Bristol, Connecticut, is claiming that his child, an eighth-grader at Northeast Middle School, was given a social studies worksheet that is anti-Second Amendment in nature -- or, at the least, opposed to the conservative view of the provision.
In an interview with Fox News' Todd Starnes, Boibeaux said that he's "appalled" and that the school seems to be "trying to indoctrinate our kids." The worksheet in question, published by Instructional Fair, is entitled, "The Second Amendment Today," and it allegedly proclaims that American citizens do not have the right to guns.
"The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms," it purportedly reads. "The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional."
When it comes to interpreting the Second Amendment, the worksheet provides additional parameters through which the constitutional provision should be viewed. Starnes explains:
The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.Conn. Father
"This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states," the worksheet reads. "So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws."
According to the document, the Second Amendment "only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard."Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

Doesn't surprise me. The schools are not about education anymore. Try are only about indoctrination.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

"A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."

The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

I don't know which bothers me more: that they're teaching the 2nd Amendment with that emphasis, despite recent rulings, or that they don't understand that the ENTIRE Bill of Rights was applied to the States...Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.
