    I went and read there statment. I now agree. this state ACLU did in fact mention that there is no need to feel threatened by the picture.

    a little 2nd as well...... The national ACLU would not touch this.

    Because of this thing that many liberals hate(and sometimes try to blatantly misinterpret to support their anti-2nd amendment stand) called he 2nd amendment, she has a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Combined with the first amendment she is free to have someone take pictures of her bearing arms and post them on the internet. The school,especially a tax payer funded has absolutely no business trying to force any anti-2nd amendment view on it's students and staff.Seeing how one of the things our schools should teach is the constitution it shouldn't even have a anti-2nd amendment view period.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The idea of the ACLU in general with their anti-2nds amendment stand actually defending 2nd amendment rights is laughable. If this happened in Nevada then it could said the ACLU there is keeping its word.

    This is a provocative picture, It didn`t pass PC muster. Of all pictures of guns,on a scale from one to ten, ten being the most provocative pose, she scored a perfect ten. I love guns just because I can kill anyone that might kill me. The cops are a no-show...my 12 guage won a ball bat fight one night,(without fireing a shot...). The cops did come...what...about an hour and a half later. Looking at the gun from that end,a real gun, or a photo,gives the same message to humans. The "gun grab lobby" and the "protect the children in excess lobby" didn`t like the pose, at all. They are both wrong but they had the first vote,and right to persecute.

    She was not wrong, at all. The last time I looked the law and our Constitution said nothing about a picture with a gun being terms for termination.

    The only thing wrong here is the PC police trying to enforce something that is not enforceable.

    You are absolutely correct. The PC police will fail in the end, but they got their headlines none the less. With enforcement units out there like the PC Police we gun owners and enthusiats need to beware. Thank you for taking the sharp edges of my post... she was NOT legaly wrong in any way. Both her freedom of expression and her right to keep and bear arms, must be aggressively defended here.

    I think a picture tells a thousand words. Underneath the image of her asserting violence to cover up her ignorance and displaying to us that we couldn't do anything civil to help her see it another way (in other words snarkly rubbing these things in our face), I see a person that is somewhat sinister, sad and lonely, who is looking for attention and should be looking for it in more of a productive way than this. Whether it is legal or not legal, I don't think that this is a good message to send our kids. The people here who are defending her solely on her rights do not see that morality figures into everything that goes on in the world. If it didn't, why would persuasion be such an important thing in the courtroom, where afterall these laws are made?

    This has absolutely nothing to do with morality, hers or anyone else's. It has everything to do with the smell of bull**it in the air.

    This is nothing but an attack on freedom of speech and the "anti-gun" crowed is leading the charge and again screaming "it's for the children!."

    Abortion is a moral issue, the death penalty is a moral issue. A picture of someone on face-book holding a gun has nothing to do with morality. Although it does seem to be an issue championed by morons.
