Grant Middle School (Springfield, Illinois)

“This amendment (2nd Amendment) states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they 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.”

- Part of a worksheet the school produced to summarized the Bill of Rights - the first ten Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Call me crazy, but I think I've missed something.  I have always thought of myself as more or less educated when it comes to U.S. civics issues, specifically the U.S. Constitution...But I must have missed something in my understanding of the 2nd Amendment.

So, lets take a look at the amendment; its entire text.

“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.” - 2nd Amendment

Uhhhhhh.  That doesn't look anything like what Grant Middle School put out to its young students...How can that be?

It can be because like many public schools, Grant Middle School is more interested in revisionist history, through Liberal propaganda, than teaching honest history...A complete disgrace, but something I'm sure the school isn't the slightest bit embarrassed about, and the only thing they may be upset about it getting caught.

Something to keep in mind when you send your children off to school:  K-College, the least honest and free-thinking institutions in the United States - exactly the opposite of what they should be.
