Calif high school forbids student from wearing NRA t-shirt

NRA t-shirtHaley Bullwinkle and her banned NRA t-shirt

Did you know that the National Rifle Association — which educates Americans in gun safety and defends our constitutional Second Amendment right —  is “offensive,” “violent” and “divisive”?

Awr Hawkins reports for Breitbart.com, Oct. 3, 2013, that a female student at Canyon High School in Anaheim Hills, California, was ordered to change out of her t-shirt because it promoted the NRA.

According to CBS Los Angeles, Haley Bullwinkle said she was sent to the principal’s office in September “for violating the school’s dress code that forbids offensive, violent, or divisive clothing.”

The “offensive” shirt was a gift from Bullwinkle’s father, which he gave her after he became a member of the NRA.

The shirt “shows a buck, an American flag, and a hunter’s silhouette.” Under this is inscribed: “National Rifle Association of America: Protecting America’s Traditions Since 1871.”

When Bullwinkle’s father contacted school principal Kimberly Fricker for an explanation, she told him the shirt violated code because it had an image of a gun on it. In response, Bullwinkle’s father has retained an attorney, citing the fact that the drill team twirls fake guns in their performances.

Her father also cited the fact that the school’s “mascot is a Comanche,” saying: “If you consider… the image of the hunter to be offensive, certainly there are groups that would consider the Comanche Indian Chief [mascot] to be offensive.”

UPDATE (Oct. 4, 2013):

The principal, Kimberly Fricker, has backed off. The girl’s mom, Stephanie Bullwinke, said she got a call from Fricker yesterday, saying Haley can wear her shirt: “She [Fricker] was very, very apologetic. She said they’re definitely going to be talking to the staff, training their staff on what is appropriate conduct and what is not.”

I have no doubt both the negative publicity (thanks to bloggers!) and the threat of a lawsuit led Fricker to change her mind.

  1. Thank goodness Haley’s father is fighting back by securing a lawyer. He brought up very valid points. These school administrators who have implemented these policies apparently forgot how it could affect drill teams and ROTC. Under their policies, they would have to be banned. What dumb asses.

     
  2. I don’t know any other way to get these to you. I know you will know how to share with everyone else. call it Wal-Martians. Hope it works

  4. What a great daughter, and father. Hope he sues them into oblivion. I’m convinced this is a mandate coming from the fed gov. There’s no other logical explanation.

     
  5. I’d be suing immediately.

    The SCOTUS has ruled that children do not check their constitutional rights at the front door of a school.

    And I’ll just bet these teacher’s goonion types would have no problem if a Muslim kid wore an “Allah is Great” shirt to school.

  6. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this revealing post. Good God, how idiotic in every respect!

     
  7. The American public school system has become a Gigantic Left Wing Freak Show!

     
    • But you have to see their side as well. There are people who want to open carry into stores and public property because it’s their “right” to do so. It doesn’t make it smart and frightens those around. That’s not a way to keep gun rights intact for legitimate use.

  9. I hope the school will concede to let her wear the shirt. There is clearly nothing offensive about the shirt…except it appears it would be about the size of a tent on the girl. The school can worry about real guns showing up but not NRA advertising that does not promote violence.

  11. This same high school allowed “Seniores and Senoritas” day. A day that allowed seniors to dress up as gangbangers and gardeners and anything that puts down the latino culture.
