Just in case you cannot read the print because the picture is a little blurry, here is what an Illinois student’s workbook said about the 2nd Amendment:
This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and 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.
Well if that isn’t a bold-faced lie, I don’t know what is. Let’s take a look at what the 2nd amendment ACTUALLY says, shall we?
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed
What part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” do you not understand? Look at that simple sentence. Where does it say that you have the right to own CERTAIN weapons IF you REGISTER them? Because, I’m reading over that line and I don’t see it mention any of those words. It doesn’t say “The right of the people to keep and bear CERTAIN arms as long as they register their weapons”. So why teach it that way?
It’s quite simple actually. They want to implement curriculum that will make students believe that they have to obtain government approval in order to exercise their constitutional rights. THAT IS COMPLETELY FALSE. Why has it become that government runs the people? You can’t just re-write the constitution so that it fits in with your agenda. That’s not how this works.
Wake up guys. They can’t change the minds of millions of responsible gun owners so now they are moving onto minds in which they can manipulate; your kids.
