8th grade student suspended, arrested over gun t-shirt

When 8th grade Jared Marcum got dressed for school this morning he says he had no idea that his pro-Second Amendment shirt would initiate what he calls a fight over his First Amendment rights.

“I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don’t see a problem with this, there shouldn’t be a problem with this,” Jared said.

It was the image of a gun printed on Jared’s t-shirt that sparked a dispute between a Logan Middle School teacher and Jared, that ended with Jared suspended, arrested and facing two charges, obstruction and disturbing the education process, on his otherwise spotless record.

Jared’s father Allen Lardieri says he’s angry he had to rush from work to pick his son up from jail over something he says was blown way out of proportion.

“I don’t’ see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a t-shirt, especially when policy doesn’t forbid it,” Lardieri said.

    So, if I have this right, freedom of expression and celebration of ones background is OK IF preapproved by the liberals?

    Those not meeting the approval of the liberals need to be punished?

    We need to reverse this equation. Soon.

    this is America and we have had guns for all our existence, this is idiotic and completely assinine. Our schools teach how to put a condom on and how to have an abortion without parentaI consent … grow up wacko America. Guns are a tool and necessary in the hands of law abiding citizens… remember fast and furious before we “hang” a kid for wearing a shirt, or pointing his or her finger like a gun…please!!

    The Quote of the Decade: “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

      Obozos people are tiring to nullify our constitution because they have been getting away with it so far. Wake up America before it’s to late.

    Ok.Suspended? Maybe and i mean a loose maybe but to be arrested? Really? Talk about over reaction.See what they are doing though? To question any authority means immediate reprisal.See he questioned a teacher and stood his ground.Which in this day and age cannot be tolerated by the liberals and there ilk.Still think we arent living in a communist country? Think again.

    Folks, the communist, illegitimate and treasonous Obama regime intends to win. If not one way, then another. The squeeze on conservatives, evangelicals and gun-owners is getting tighter and tighter. It will not stop. They fully intend to eliminate us.

    SCOTUS has ruled that the freedom of speech does NOT stop at the schools doors. Major discipline needs to be handed out to the teacher, principal, school and the police who pursued this.

    i’m making my voice heard by writing to my senators and representative asking them to vote against the gun control legislation. people moan and groan but how many people who are complaining actually correspond with their elected officials? and in a small way i’m buying pro gun shirts and wearing them wherever i go.
