Fighting back in Wisconsin

First Amendment protecting the Second

Quote:
A Wisconsin high school has been hit with a federal lawsuit alleging it is
violating the constitutional rights of two students by forbidding them from wearing
T-shirts on campus that depict guns in a "non-threatening, non-violent manner."

The lawsuit was filed in Milwaukee federal court by the mothers of two students at
Kettle Moraine High School in Wales, Wisconsin, who are self-described gun enthusiasts,
avid hunters and supporters of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

...

Monroe said precedent has already been established in Wisconsin on the issue of whether
T-shirts depicting guns are protected under the First Amendment.

In November 2018, Monroe represented Matthew Schoenecker, a student at Markesan High
School in Markesan, Wisconsin, who was barred from wearing to school a T-shirt with guns
and other weapons spelling out word love.

Schoenecker filed a federal lawsuit claiming his First Amendment rights were violated.

A federal judge rejected the school principal's motion to dismiss the lawsuit and granted the
student a preliminary injunction, ruling the student would likely prevail based on the merits of
his case against the principal.

Our governor is a rabid anti gun communist. Evers would like nothing better than to join all the other leftist communist governors in other states to destroy the Constitution, specifically the 2A.

Fortunately we have a conservative majority in the house. I do not put much faith in them staying the course though, as with the federal congress conservatives their legs can get wobbly when challenged.

Milwaukee and Madison communists want to rule the state and enforce their crap onto the rest of the state.

Not happening. They can shove any unconstitutional legislation up their butts.

Communists do not live in a world where any opposition can have a voice. These high school students are doing just that, and the commies will do everything possible to keep it from spreading.

Just taking this to court is a thorn in the commie agenda.

I remember a story sometime back about a student being told he couldn't wear a t-shirt depicting the Massachusetts state quarter because of the minuteman holding the rifle. It was another one of these mindless zero-tolerance things.

Yes, he is an enemy of the people if you ask me. The folks in the Republik of Madison might think he's the second coming, but folks around my neck of the woods aren't impressed.

True that! There is a majority of Republicans, but not necessarily a majority of conservatives. At least that's how it seems to work out all too often.
