Just recently, an 8th grader from West Virginia was suspended from school for wearing a pro NRA shirt with a picture of a rifle on it. Even though the school had no specific policy about this I do understand their point of view----post Sandy Hook, etc. He refused to take it off. But, he was also arrested which I disagree with and which I think is scary. Should I worry about wearing my shirts that have a picture of the American flag on them? What do you think?

I understand the school's viewpoint though I think many would debate this. I did not realize this was his 2nd time wearing the shirt to school. I totally disagree with the arrest. Thanks much!
I'm sure there is more to the arrest story. As far as debate, there should be none. This is flat out inappropriate for any 8th grader to wear, let alone in school. Besides, how many times do you think he's studied the Constitution? Never?
I'm middle aged. When I was in school kids use to routinely bring knives (not for violence) to school, have gun racks in their truck, etc. They would never have brought a gun into school however. I grew up in a rural part of Ohio...
