NRA t-shirtHaley Bullwinkle and her banned NRA t-shirt

Did you know that the National Rifle Association — which educates Americans in gun safety and defends our constitutional Second Amendment right –  is “offensive,” “violent” and “divisive”?

Awr Hawkins reports for Breitbart.com, Oct. 3, 2013, that a female student at Canyon High School in Anaheim Hills, California, was ordered to change out of her t-shirt because it promoted the NRA.

According to CBS Los AngelesHaley Bullwinkle said she was sent to the principal’s office in September “for violating the school’s dress code that forbids offensive, violent, or divisive clothing.”

The “offensive” shirt was a gift from Bullwinkle’s father, which he gave her after he became a member of the NRA.

The shirt “shows a buck, an American flag, and a hunter’s silhouette.” Under this is inscribed: “National Rifle Association of America: Protecting America’s Traditions Since 1871.”

When Bullwinkle’s father contacted school principal Kimberly Fricker for an explanation, she told him the shirt violated code because it had an image of a gun on it. In response, Bullwinkle’s father has retained an attorney, citing the fact that the drill team twirls fake guns in their performances.

Her father also cited the fact that the school’s “mascot is a Comanche,” saying: “If you consider… the image of the hunter to be offensive, certainly there are groups that would consider the Comanche Indian Chief [mascot] to be offensive.”
