Angered by word of the disciplining of two Lacey High School students for a gun-related social media post, 200 parents, community members and other supporters of the Second Amendment on Monday let the Board of Education know they don’t want the district trampling on their rights or meddling in their home lives.
“You guys are reaching into our private life, the private life of our children,” said one parent, Lewis Fiordimondo, who has twins in pre-kindergarten and a daughter at the high school. “It’s not your place. It’s not the school’s place.”
Another dad, Frank Horvath, whose son is a senior at Lacey High, put things in blunter terms.
“It’s none of your damn business what our children do outside of school,” Horvath told the seven board members toward the end of a four-hour meeting, most of it occupied by speaker after speaker venting anger and frustration at school officials largely unable to respond due to confidentiality rules.
The unusually large turnout for Monday night’s board meeting in the high school auditorium was prompted by a five-day in-school suspension of two senior boys after one of them posted a photo of themselves with guns at a local shooting range, away from school property and not during school hours.
Of course, according to the libtards running America’s schools, EVERYTHING is their damned business. To wit:
This after the language of a district policy in the student handbook was quietly amended last week following a local uproar in the Lacey community and the threat of a lawsuit by the Association of Rifle and Pistol Clubs of New Jersey, whose lawyer, Daniel Schmutter, was at Monday’s board meeting.
Before the policy was changed, it had stated that, “any student who is reported to be in possession of a weapon of any type for any reason or purpose whether on or off school grounds,” would be subject to penalties including up to a one-year suspension.
Now, the policy omits any mention of possessing a weapon off school grounds or the length of a suspension. The revamped policy also adds a note about school buses.
Bold mine, and simply outrageous. But hey, the personal is political, and very much vice the versa. Right, Lefty?
I hate to say it; I hate to even think it, truly I do. But it looks more and more like it will come down to actual, for-real killing in order to get these tyrannical liberal-fascist busybodies off our backs and out of our lives. That’s assuming we ever do, or can, that is. What’s for sure and certain is that they’ll never go away, they’ll never give up, they’ll never rethink their presumed right to rule with an iron fist, and they’ll never admit to error in even the smallest degree.
That leaves us with Glenn’s recommendation: “Punch back twice as hard.” Heh. Indeed.
