The anti-gun movement in America has gained unwieldy strength after 8 years of Barack Obama’s presidency, and the latest skirmish in the fight to normalize firearm enthusiasm comes to us from a 7th grade classroom.
Even though our nation’s Constitution explicitly allows Americans the right to bear arms, the political left of our nation has been at the forefront of the anti-gun cabal in America. By preying on bleeding heart liberals with their ridiculously skewed assertions and anti-firearm media campaigns, democrats and their ilk have been able to create a dark stigma surrounding firearms in our nation. After any gun-related accident or mental health-induced incident, the left is quick to jump onto their soapbox to push for tighter gun control legislation.
Now, after being emboldened by one of the country’s most liberal and forceful Presidents in modern history, the fight against firearms is reaching absurd new heights.
“The campaign against guns has reached such a fever pitch that an Ohio seventh-grader was suspended from school for 10 days for simply ‘liking’ a photo of an airsoft gun on Instagram.
“Zachary Bowlin saw the photo, which was succinctly captioned, ‘Ready.’ He ‘liked’ the photo, prompting Edgewood Middle School to suspend him.
“The boy said, ‘I don’t think I did anything wrong. The] next morning, they called me down and, like, patted me down and checked me for weapons. Then, they told me I was getting expelled or suspended or whatever.’
“The school sent a note to Zachary’s parents stating the reason he was suspended was ‘liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.’ His father, Martin Bowlin, snapped, ‘I was livid. He never shared, he never commented, never made a threatening post … [he] just liked it.’ He added, ‘My wife called and said he’d been pulled in to the office, and he was being suspended because he liked a picture on Instagram that his friend posted of a weapon, of an airsoft gun. It was 10 days suspension with the possibility of expulsion. I’m like, “For liking a gun? Did he make a comment or threat or anything?” And it’s like, “No. He just liked a picture.” I’m like, “Well, this can’t happen.”‘”
This insane action, taken against a young man at such an impressionable age, is proof positive that the leftists of our nation are actively working to win the propaganda war against the Second Amendment. With this vile and disturbing demonization taking place at an educational institution, the question must be asked, “has liberalism gone too far?”
