    Considering the ACLU's anti-2nd amendment stance I would have to say you are correct. IF she pulled a Phelps they would probably still defend her.

    The school has absolutely no business firing her over a photo of something that she has a constitutional right to.

    This is a tricky situation. The only thing I can say is that this woman is incredibly stupid. What she did was miles away from p.c. and people that are not careful, well thats what they get.

    Are you talking about her having a Facebook account?

    No, I was talking about her picture, but now that you speak of it, maybe having a fb account is not such a great idea either.

    What could possibly be wrong with the picture?

    Alright so I got the rest of your post.....but the fact that this teacher is an adult means what exactly? No school shootings by stressed out, deranged adults I'm guessing?
    It means that the administration (more importantly the courts) will have to take her seriously. Students have few rights at school, and find it extremely hard to defend what rights they do have. Adults are not treated in the same fashion.

    Maybe you could start of a comedic list of protectionisms lacking statistical justification.

    It might in fact be a loaded gun,(figuratively speaking) to have an ultra liberal org like the ACLU involved at all. The suspension is bull, but to be expected, in light of the gun grab lobby and the teacher unions being siamese twins on such matters.
