    sounds like its her turn to take the legal route. sue the pants off the school for discrimination. id be more interested in the principals job than monetary damages but id take those too.

    Makes my blood boil. You don't have to like guns, but up do have to respect the rights of those who do. If not, to to hell.

    Does anyone else see the stupidity of posting a picture of your CCW permit on Facebook? :rolleyes:

    Concealed means concealed...

    She better make that decision hurt both the Principal & School Board.

    His hoplophobia is his problem, she should not be persecuted for exercising her Rights.

    Are you the only one that knows you have yours?

    I wouldn't do it but it doesn't make what the school is doing, right.

    I'm not excusing the school's reaction. They are wrong, and should be sued.

    That said, only my wife, a small circle of friends, and some gun dealers know of my CCW permit. I didn't get it to make a political or social statement.

    I don't have Facebook, but Mrs. Flamingsuit does. It's great for keeping in touch with friends from around the country, but not for posting "I pooped today" or other messages for the NSA to farm and log so they can associate it with my profile :rolleyes:

    I'm with you.

    Like I said, I wouldn't do it and like you, only a handful of people know I have mine too.

    But I am proud to have it for numerous reasons, and I hope you all that have them are too. So I could see why someone might post something like that.

    I hope they get busted on this.

    I am thinking that there is much more to the story here that we are not being told....

    Dear Principal Janina,

    You do not have a right to be "not scared". You do not have a right to foist your emotional frailties on those whom you serve. It is not your school.

    Grow up or get out.

    I open carry in Mi there are serious social benefits. When your goal is make the world better it makes sense.

    Loctite/paint pen/regularly check your gear. A gun falling off your belt is unacceptable
