Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School was happy to host a recruiter from the New York National Guard. But they were not happy with some of the swag he was handing out, particularly a t-shirt showing a guardsman holding a rifle. The school dress code bars students from wearing anything depicting a weapon. The recruiter agreed not to hand out anymore of the shirts. The students who’d already gotten one were told they could wear it that day but should not come back to school in it.
So, promoting fighting to defend the state’s interest = good; showing the tools they use to do so = bad.
Homeschool / private school / church school your kids!
And why bother with joining a state militia; in the event of an invasion, or similar threat, just pick up a gun and become a bushwhacker!
