I could not believe what was happening in this classroom... Listen, as a freedom loving American, I'm all about you having the freedom to believe what you want. If you don't like guns, that is your deal, and frankly I'm okay with that. I believe the 2nd amendment is one of this country's greatest freedoms and I love shooting guns like this great nation's founding fathers did. To see lies being spouted in this class room makes me absolutely livid.
To take some misinformation about a large group of people (with absolutely no proof), and claim it as fact as a sweeping generalization over said people group is discrimination. Am I talking about a race issue? NOPE! I'm talking about this teacher's view of the NRA. Her statements were based on what exactly? As most NRA members know, the NRA is a HUGE proponent of gun safety. In fact, they have created a program for firearm safety just for children. Funny how that didn't come up in this classroom discussion...
Jones College Prep (where this vid takes place) in Chicago was voted one of the top 100 US schools according US News and World Report. It is one of those selective enrollment schools for only the brightest minds. I was happy to hear one kid perk up and say that if guns were illegal, only criminals and law enforcement would have guns. Unfortunately his kid was quickly bowled over by destructive teachers.
Thoughts on the vid? Let me hear you in the comments section below.
