    Most of the time these things are disallowed because the schools don't allow pictures/slogans over a certain size on clothing. You open a can of worms even if it's a patriotic slogan.

    I wore concert t-shirts in the 8th grade. I guess we have evolved.

    According to @garypagetwo we are ancient relics and it's amazing we can remember things like that. I think the change all comes from people getting so easily butthurt, the kid wearing the Christian shirt makes the Muslim cry and the kid wearing the pro-gay shirt makes the Christian cry.....

    Make sure you don't discriminate against those who hate america because that would be.... discrimination.

    If the school dress code says you can't wear a shirt with an image of a gun on it....case funding closed. Wear your shirt on the weekend.

    This. And then someone does this knowing what will happen just to get on the news. Things are rarely as they seem these days.

    Big Johnson shirts were popular when I was in school. I had a t-shirt of Fred Flintstone smoking a blunt and never got in trouble for it, though I probably should have. I guess the teachers never looked close enough. :snicker:

    Yep. Clearly they have a rule, which is don't wear shirts with guns on them, and the school doesn't want to have to start making exceptions for every student who claims they are being patriotic.

    That's the sad thing. Discretion is thrown out the window and they just make a blanket ban.

    Every day I read the paper or see the news, I cringe at the PC world. Amazing what we have turned into. That shirt does nothing bad, but say thank you and support.

    That shirt should be an approved school uniform on Veterans Day! :salute:

    The 'exception to the rule' section of the dress code would be 10000 pages long.
