School Workbook Says Second Amendment Requires Gun Registration
A seventh grade workbook that says guns have to be registered, per the Second Amendment, is causing a furor at Grant Middle School in Springfield, Ill.
According to Examiner.com, the workbook says the Second Amendment "states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison."
However, the Second Amendment never mentions gun registration or prison.
An unidentified parent posted a picture (above) of the workbook on the "Illinois Gun Owners Rights" Facebook page.
The parent said that he met with his child's teacher about changing the workbook.
“I even told the school officials I talked to that you can’t reword the Constitution to what you think it should be and you should only teach what it is,” the parent said.
Not surprisingly, the picture has gone viral on Facebook.
Some Facebook commenters falsely blamed Common Core, a set of education standards that have been demonized in conservative circles.
