I'm spittin' mad that children in the Holcomb School who are doing a report on the 2nd amendment aren't allowed to draw a picture of a gun. What the hell do those teachers think the 2nd amendment (or the first amendment, for that matter) is supposed to be about?

A picture of a gun never hurt anyone, and lots of Americans have shed blood for our right to keep and bear arms. Apparently they don't understand that in Holcomb!!!

There's a meeting once a month. Come on down, share your concerns, and then get dismissed and asked to leave.(Ain't that how it works, Keith?)

I just might do that, but in the meantime, I'd sure like to hear why my kid can't draw a picture of a gun when she's asked to illustrate the 2nd amendment? What does the school think the 2nd amendment is all about?

The second amendment says that you have the right to bear arms, not to draw them. If you want to know why your child is not allowed to draw a picture of a gun, maybe you or you child should ask the teacher who is forbidding it.

Was it a picture of a gun that was forbidden or was it of someone shooting the gun (like at someone or something)? And did you ask the teacher what the child is to draw if they can not draw a gun? I'm sure the teacher will be happy to tell you what is allowed!

Are they required to DRAW anything? Most of the reports I gave were just written reports. If the picture of the gun isnt necessary or doesn't effect the grade then why make a big deal about it? I know a picture isn't gonna hurt anyone but if it doesn't change the situation then why fight it. Pick your battles, don't gripe and cause trouble over every non important thing or when something important happens no one is gonna listen to ya.

The assignment was to draw a picture to illustrate each amendment in the bill of rights. The teacher said students could not draw a gun for the 2nd amendment, but could draw a soldier in uniform.

So they're teaching our kids that the 2nd amendment is for soldiers, and not for citizens? And since when was anyone ever hurt by a picture of a gun?

I'd like to see a bunch of parents and citizens at the next school board meeting!

Good. But I think we need to find out about that kid who was told not to draw a gun.

This makes no since. Last year the seniors last year for the float thingys had cardboard cut outs of pistols acting like they were a S.W.A.T. team and no one got in trouble for that. The bad thing was they were acting like they were firing them and now they even let kids draw them for the second amendment.

Well, they didn't let my child draw one when she was assigned to draw something about the 2nd amendment!

why don't you just have your child draw a person flexing arm muscles? like in a cut off tee shirt. you know BARE arms...kid's could be able to look at that and know it means Bear Arms..and it effects nobody, and nobody can complain.

They could also draw a pair of actual bear arms on a mount like that one episode of family guy.
