Kid who wore an NRA T-shirt should be studying, not playing with politics

Did you here the one about the 8th grader from West Virginia who wore an NRA t-shirt to school? (1)   I wish this were a joke.

A 14-year-old kid wore an NRA t-shirt to school and was told by one of his teachers to remove it, or at least, flip it inside out.   The kid refused and was arrested.  According to the sheriff, the kid was arrested for disrupting the school day and for almost causing a riot, not for wearing the t-shirt or its message.

What I want to know is what kind of parents send an 8th grader to school, wearing a t-shirt with the sleeves cut off, with a political message printed on it?  Or do you think lil Johnny, at 14, has his own political opinions?   He’s an 8th grader!

After the kid was released from jail and returned to school, the parent put him in the same t-shirt that caused the stir in the first place.  Other parents sent their kids to school wearing NRA shirts as some kind of backwoods West Virginia show of unity.

I’m pretty sure West Virginia is one of the poorest and most uneducated states in the union.  Maybe the kid should be studying in school instead of worrying about politics, especially his parents politics.
