Public School Worksheet: 2nd Amendment no right to keep and bear arms…

In this public school worksheet given to children is every lie about the Second Amendment and the Constitution offered by the radical left.

Fox News:

The father of a Connecticut child is furious after discovering that his son’s school is teaching students that Americans don’t have a Second Amendment right to bear arms.

“I am appalled,” said Steven Boibeaux, of Bristol. “It sounds to me like they are trying to indoctrinate our kids.”

Boibeaux’s son is an eighth grader at Northeast Middle School. On Monday his social studies teacher gave students a worksheet titled, ‘The Second Amendment Today.’

“The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” the worksheet states. “The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional.

The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.

“This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states,” the worksheet reads. “So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.”

According to the document, the Second Amendment “only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard.”

Boibeaux said he discovered the worksheet as he was going over his son’s homework assignments.

“I’m more than a little upset about this,” he told Fox News. “It’s not up to the teacher to determine what the Constitution means.”

Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel, called the lesson propaganda – that is “absolutely false.”

“In fact, the US Supreme Court has affirmed that the Second Amendment ensures the individual the right to bear arms,” Staver told Fox News. “The progressive interpretation of the Second Amendment is that it doesn’t give you the right to bear arms – that it’s a corporate right of the government – but that has been rejected by the Courts.”

Boibeaux’s son’s teacher also told the students that the Constitution is a “living document.”

As noted in the worksheet provided to students – that means “the interpretation changes to meet the needs of the times.”

“The judges and courts of each generation provide the interpretation of the document,” the worksheet states.

Boibeaux called that concept mind-boggling.

It’s not up to the teacher to determine what the Constitution means,” he said. “If you want to learn about the Constitution, recite it word for word.”

Staver said the idea that the Constitution is a living document is another progressive tactic.

“This idea that this school is propagating that the Constitution can simply be changed at the whim of someone – or that the Second Amendment does not protect the individual right to bear arms is absolute propaganda and absolutely false,” Staver said.

One thought on “Public School Worksheet: 2nd Amendment no right to keep and bear arms…”

  1. Really, it’s not settled law whether it’s an individual right or only applies within the group context of a militia. Right now the Supremes support “individual right” 5-4, but that’s quite recent, and there’s precedent in both directions. With a couple of different judges it could easily flip the other way. A smarter approach would be for the teacher to explain the different viewpoints of interpretation, have the class debate, and vote on which way they interpret the words of the Constitution to mean.

    If you look here ( you will see that the major cases since 1875 have gone one way and then the other, back and forth, over individual right to bear vs. group context. They keep re-defining it, depending on who’s doing the interpreting!

    Mikey, your racism is showing again.

    First of all, every court decision from 1875 that said that the “people” in the Second Amendment are not the same “people” in the other Amendments were delivered in an effort to keep guns out of the hands of black Americans so it would be easier for the KKK to lynch them. They are directly tied with Jim Crow laws.

    Second of all it is painfully obvious that you have not read US v Miller (1939), DC v Heller (2008), McDonald v Chicago (2010), or NRA v Chicago.

    Mikey, do you realize that Google and Yahoo cache this web site and your comments forever? You are making yourself look foolish for all posterity to see.
