SCHOOL TEACHES STUDENTS IT’S CONSTITUTIONAL FOR COPS TO CONFISCATE GUNS

SCHOOL TEACHES STUDENTS IT’S CONSTITUTIONAL FOR COPS TO CONFISCATE GUNS

South Carolina parents were furious this week after seeing questions regarding the Constitution – in particular the Second Amendment – as taught in their daughter’s 8th grade history class. The daughter’s teacher had given the class a pop quiz regarding the Constitution. Question 10 asked, “Mr. Jones’ gun was confiscated at a police traffic stop, even though he had the proper permit and license of ownership of the gun. Is this Constitutional?” The student originally answered “no,” but the teacher told daughter to change her answer to “yes.”

This is not a unique event. Just this week, another report emerged in Texas of an Advanced Placement (AP) textbook presenting a modified version of the Second Amendment. The textbook’s wording indicated that only police and military were allowed to have guns with the wording “The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”
