This is another example of how liberals are using the public schools to brainwash kids into their socialist way of thinking.
A seventh grade student in Springfield, Illinois, the state capital, was studying a workbook that he had been given in school that covered the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. When then student read what the workbook said about the Second Amendment, he took the workbook and showed to his parents, telling them that it was teaching lies.
One parent, who insists on remaining anonymous, read the following in the workbook:
“THE BILL OF RIGHTS: Amendments 1-10”
“Amendment 2 (1791): Right to Bear Arms”
“This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison. The founding fathers included this amendment to prevent the United States from acting like the British who had tried to take weapons away from the colonists.” [Emphasis mine]
The parents were likewise concerned about what their kids were being taught. They contacted Storyleak and told them:
“My son was given a workbook at school that is a compilation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. When they covered the 2nd Amendment, he saw that they were stating that only ‘certain guns’ could be owned and that they had to be ‘registered,’ which he knew was false. He bought this to my attention as he felt it was wrong to teach these things that aren’t true. I’m extremely proud of my son for his actions.”
“Me and my children are active gun enthusiasts and supporters of the 2nd amendment. I have discussed the 2nd amendment with them several times and explained what it meant and its importance to our country.”
“I even told the school officials I talked to that you can’t reword the Constitution to what you think it should be and you should only teach what it is. We live in a society where children are being taught to fear firearms instead of embracing them and our shooting sports. Heck 50-60 years ago you had police officers coming into schools teaching firearm safety and now we have schools teaching false information and fear. It’s a sad time.”
Even after the parent’s complaint to school officials, it appears that the workbook will continue to be used to brainwash students throughout the state of Illinois.
Illinois students are not the only ones being brainwashed with false teachings. A year ago, sixth graders in the Bryant School District in Arkansas were given an assignment telling them that they are part of a task force to re-write the Bill of Rights because they are outdated. They were told to use the ‘War on Terror’ and the Patriot Act to replace two amendments. The students were not being taught what the Bill of Rights say but rather what liberals want them to say.
High school students at Guyer High School in Denton, Texas are using an Advanced Placement History textbook, which is endorsed by Common Core and one of the most used history textbooks in use. This textbook quotes the Second Amendment this way:
“The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”
Basically, these students are being taught that only state police or militia such as the National Guard have the right to bear arms, not the common civilian American.
Realize that these warped and twisted lies are being taught to unsuspecting students all over the US. Within 10 years, all of these kids will be voting age and will vote the way they have been brainwashed to vote. If something isn’t done soon, the Second Amendment will definitely be revised or removed within the next decade and Americans will lose the right to bear arms. The government will then start confiscating our guns and I know for a fact that when that happens, our streets will run red with the blood of innocent Americans along with the blood of law enforcement and military personnel. There will be a civil revolution that will have millions of casualties. Two hundred thirty-eight years ago, colonists were ready and willing to fight for the rights that we are losing today. It’s time that we prepare to take on the same fight. Every American needs to re-read the Declaration of Independence which starts out:
“IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.” [Emphasis mine]
