ANJRPC Wins! School Capitulates on Anti-Gun Policy!
Share |





March 18 - the Lacey Township School District has quietly capitulated to ANJRPC's demand in a cease and desist letter last week that it rescind a blatantly unconstitutional written policy allowing disciplinary action against students"reported to be in possession of a weapon of any type for any reason or purpose WHETHER ON OR OFF SCHOOL GROUNDS during the academic year."

That policy came to light when it was reported that disciplinary action was taken against several students for posting social media photos of themselves near firearms at a target range.

A policy that allows for discipline of students for exercising a fundamental right off of school grounds is clearly unconstitutional and violates the Second Amendment. A policy that allows disciplinary action for posting a picture of the exercise of that fundamental right off of school grounds also violates the First Amendment.

The outrageous and unconstitutional policy was quietly rescinded, entirely re-written, and then posted to the Lacey Township High School website late last week. The new policy no longer attempts to chill the lawful exercise of Second Amendment rights off of school grounds, and instead prohibits carrying or possession of any "weapon or simulated weapon," including "imitation firearms," on school grounds or buses.

While it appears that the most obvious and offensive Constitutional violations have been removed, ANJRPC counsel is still carefully reviewing the new policy for other potential issues.

ANJRPC has also received reports that the school is attempting to amicably resolve issues concerning disciplinary action privately with the students and their families. Because of the sensitive nature of this process, and the importance to the students of clearing their permanent records, ANJRPC is intentionally not aggressively injecting itself into this process at this time, and urges other activists to follow suit and avoid politicizing those private discussions, which could harm the students.
