Guns: Profane to Mention
In a free country, a gun isn’t just a tool for self-defense and hunting. It is the reification of liberty — the empowerment of the individual concretized as something you can actually hold in your hands. This is why liberals not only fear firearms, but regard them as profane. They are using their control of public schools to ensure future generations hold guns in the same regard:
An English teacher at Denton High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth area allegedly refused to grade two student reports because they discussed guns.
MyFoxDFW.com reports that the teacher, Dewey Christian, told his students to write a report on anything they wanted.
Marshall Williams, one of Christian’s students, told the station he chose to write about a Fort Worth gun show he had attended. He said Christian told him he would get a zero on the assignment because of the topic.
Another student, Alex Wright, said Christian rejected his report because it mentioned hunting.
Good thing this happened in Texas. A big enough stink was raised that the Denton Independent School District issued a statement declaring that
“The teacher has accepted the paper and apologized to the student for misperceptions. The teacher’s intent was for guns not to be trivialized in any school situation because of recent events.”
Shine a light on the rats and they will often retreat to their hidey holes — for now.
