Bob Hill

Oh but whatevs, says a Springfield, IL middle school superintendent:

2nd-amendment-too-scary-for-kids

This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison. The founding fathers included this amendment to prevent the United States from acting like the British who had tried to take weapons away from the colonists.

Superintendent Bob Hill argued that “no place in the book does it portray that that is the Second Amendment — it’s a study guide summary of the Second Amendment and the impact of the Second Amendment on the lives of people today.” In “reality,” he added, some places do require the registration of firearms.

Hill also claimed the material is not “proselytizing” a certain political point of view and said removing the material at this point in time is “pretty unfair relative to what the teacher has going on.” Micromanaging teachers in the district by reviewing all material they want to teach, he said, would be insulting to educators.

LOL yea, trust a school to find “militia”, “keep and bear arms”, and “shall not be infringed” too scary for the kids, so they just decide to teach them the wrong stuff instead.  God forbid a teacher be corrected, how insulting that would be.  At least the cartoon isn’t anti-gun.  It reads “I didn’t think you were a gunslinger.”  “I’m not but I have the right to protect my home.” then the cat says “Sounds constitutional to me.”….. unless that smug cat is being condescending?
