Connecticut Schools are teaching that the constitution does NOT grant citizens the right to bear arms: WHAT?
Steven Boibeaux of Bristol Connecticut is making a shocking claim about what they are teaching in Connecticut. In an interview with Fox News Todd Starnes, Mr. Boibeaux says he was stunned to see the social studies worksheet that seems to teach that American Citizens do not have the constitutional right to bear arms at his son’s school Northeast Middle School in Bristol Connecticut.
“The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” Is on the work sheet along with , “The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional.”
Oh it gets worse. The worksheet which is published by Instructional Fair, gets even more into detail. It says: “This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states. So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.”

Mr. Boibeaux is understandably upset about this. His son is an eighth grader and Mr. Boibeaux feels that the school is attempting to indoctrinate his son with false propaganda. He is demanding a meeting with the principal and the school board.
Ok let me get right down to it. This is progressive CRAP. Not only that but it is patently false. We need our children to be truly educated. The Supreme court of the United States has consistently found that the second amendment does indeed apply to the individual. Take. District of Columbia Vs. Heller for example. The majority opinions was CRYSTAL clear on this issue.
Excerpts from Scalia’s majority opinion:
“the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation. This meaning is strongly confirmed by the historical background of the Second Amendment.”
“to keep and bear Arms”, the word “Arms” “extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.”
The operative clause thus guarantees “the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation. This meaning is strongly confirmed by the historical background of the Second Amendment.”
Come on Connecticut!! Are you going to let your liberal agenda teach kids in school false information? This is beyond ridiculous. Our kids are going to be stupid in order to shove the leftist agenda down the throats of the young. We must start early I suppose. I cannot stress strongly enough, you must review your children’s information.
Another case that proves this worksheet entirely false, McDonald Vs Chicago. Once again the Supreme Court of the United states disagrees with what Chicago teaches as fact. The majority opinion held clearly that the second amendment applies to the individuals and the states. Samuel Alito wrote: “It is clear that the Framers and ratifiers of the Fourteenth Amendment counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty” In a separate concurring opinion, Justice Thomas wrote that the 2nd Amendment is fully applicable to states because the right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment as a privilege of American citizenship.
Why is the School in Connecticut teaching their children false information? Is it really so important to fully disarm the country that you are willing to teach our children false information? I am appalled by this, but not really surprised. Once again this is why the liberal public school system is failing our children horribly. Why would you teach something like that as fact when it is provably false? Anyone with an ounce of ability to look things up could find out that was false information.
So my advice to parents with school aged children, is to read everything that comes home. Make sure you are paying attention parents. Be like Mr. Boibeaux, and fight such radical teaching. Mr. Boibeaux is not taking this lying down and you shouldn’t either. He called the superintendent, he demanded that this lie be taken out of the lesson plan, and apparently he won.
When contacted by Fox News, Ellen Solek, superintendent of the school district said that the lesson is not being taught anymore. “It is no longer an assignment in that particular school.” Read that very carefully…. She did not say that the lesson was no longer taught in any school. Oh no, only that it is not taught in THAT school. I would surmise that it is not taught in that school because one on the ball parent caught the mistake, and raised the roof with outrage.
Be aware. The liberals start young. Don’t let them teach your kids garbage.
Feel free to call or write to Northeast Middle School and let them know how wrong they are in teaching kids false information in order to move forward with a liberal restrictive agenda.
