This Middle School Workbook Gets the Second Amendment Wrong… Very Wrong

2a

As I keep saying over and over and over again. The battle to protect the future of our nation’s gun rights isn’t taking place in the legislatures or the courts, it’s taking place in our schools.

We’ve already seen story after story of students being suspended or expelled for wearing Second Amendment clothing, toy guns, or even imaginary guns.

Now we see the next arrow in the anti-gun quiver aimed at our schools – outright lying in education materials. Of course, revisionist history is nothing new in public school education. Selective curriculum setting takes place in nearly every subject at nearly every level. However, it’s rare that it’s this politicized.

According to an image acquired by Illinois Gun Owners, a workbook provided to Illinois students makes some interesting claims about the Second Amendment.

Here is what the book says about the Second Amendment,

 “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.”

For comparison, here is the actual Second Amendment, in its entirety. I wonder how they got the above paragraph from the following wording,

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

This is just the latest example of the anti-gun hysteria which has swept our nation’s schools.
