    Earlier this week in Denton, Texas, the First Amendment seems to have been compromised by a few high school essays that mentioned the Second one.
    High School seniors at Denton High School were given a simple assignment in their English class: Write a paragraph about something you did over the weekend. There was no additional direction on topics for the essay. However, a few students who wrote about guns, including attending a gun show or going to shop for a gun, were told that they would be given a zero on the assignment if they did not change what they were writing about

    Texas is really changing. I would say nearly half of the state now is Liberal.

    I would think that High School seniors would have a tougher assignment then "write about something fun you did this weekend".

    it's important to announce your presence to an armed intruder, and make sure you demonstrate that your weapon is fully unloaded :grad:

    I bet that teacher wouldn't think he or she was such a bad ass if these kids started bring their guns to his/her class! They could write about whatever they wanted then!

    places allow ignorant people to teach. the goal of teaching to write an essay, is not the content they choose to write on but the way in which they write it. fucking idiot teacher doesn't understand her/his job.
