School in Connecticut Teaching Students ‘Americans Don’t Have Right to Bear Arms’


According to a Northeast Middle School worksheet, “The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms, and “The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional.”

The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.  “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.”

A teacher also told students that the Constitution is a “living document.” And as you might expect, at least one parent is royally pissed off!

As a commenter at the link points out, obviously the school is either unaware and/or chooses to ignore of two important cases of SCOTUS within the past 5 years. The Heller case which did affirm the individual right to keep and bear arms; and the McDonald case which did say the second amendment is incorporated upon ever state and municipality.

Related reading: Washington Post, June 29, 2010 – The Second Amendment provides Americans a fundamental right to bear arms that cannot be violated by state and local governments, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a long-sought victory for gun rights advocates.

... Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who wrote the opinion for the court’s dominant conservatives, said: “It is clear that the Framers . . . counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty.”

  1. Well that’s what the public school system is for. They’re no more honest than the politicians, and if you’re subjecting your kid to this brainwashing, you’re insuring that he becomes part of the problem rather than part of the solution, as well as insuring that he’ll be a brainwashed idiot when they’re finally done screwing with his mind.

  2. Time to stop complaining and time to start taking action. here is what i have just sent to the school

    Robert Garry,

    I have just been made aware of your blatant lies to your students about the 2nd amendment.

    Understand that you are paid to teach the truth, not lies. By doing so you are in breach of contract you have with the parents who send their children to the school that you run.

    Premeditate fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud are also serious criminal offenses that could result in lengthy prison sentences.

    I and may others will take great pleasure is using the courts to sue you both personally and any other staff that participate in this fraud.

    Unless you cease and desist in your fraud and breach of contract, we may elect to take civil action against you in the courts. We will place liens against everything you now own or ever will own including your pensions.


    The truth project

  3. Cr@p like this is why my sister homeschools her girls.

    More traitors badly in need of a neck stretching party.
