Eighth grader Jared Marcum wore a shirt that featured the NRA logo and a hunting rifle. The shirt didn’t violate school policy, which specifically bans clothing that features profanity, violence, and discriminatory messages, but says nothing about guns.
When Jared arrived at school, his teacher demanded that he remove the shirt. He refused. His teacher then had him removed from the class room, he was suspended, and then arrested and charged with, obstruction and disturbing the education process.
All for wearing a NRA T-Shirt that says “Protect Your Rights.” What, are we in China?
Marcum’s father, Allen Lardieri, is naturally upset that his son has been treated this way. He’s vowed to, “goto the ends of the earth, I will call people, I will write letters, I will do everything in the legal realm to make sure this does not happen again.”
