On American school campuses, some rights are more equal than others.
On a day of student walkouts nationwide fulminated by liberals using teenagers to push their gun control agenda, students who took a stand for gun rights found themselves under the gun for politically incorrect opinions.
And as one student in Minnesota found out Wednesday, carrying a sign with a message that wasn’t approved by the school principal was a good way to find yourself escorted off campus.
According to the Jordan Independent of Jordan, Minnesota, a high school student in neighboring New Prague showed up at the walkout at New Prague High School with a sign that declared the one unassailable truth of the gun control debate:
“Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”
The school’s principal, Lonnie Seifert, was apparently not amused.
Apparently, on a day when students around the country were being set loose from classrooms to voice their opinions about gun laws in the United States, students whose opinions deviated from the acceptable were not afforded the same freedoms.
A video of the incident was posted to Facebook by another New Prague High student and quickly picked up by social media.
As The Daily Wire reported: “Within a few hours, the video had already been viewed nearly 300,000 times, shared over 17,000 times, and received thousands of comments from people who expressed anger and disgust over the suppression of free speech and political indoctrination at public schools.”
Watch what happens in the video shared by one Twitter user:

The walkouts were organized in response to the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, as gun control zealots use the deaths of three adults and 14 students as an excuse to try to erase a basic American right.
But even though the media did its best to bury dissenting voices (as usual) the Minnesota incident wasn’t the only time students bucked the liberal trend.
According to USA Today, anti-gun students in Vero Beach, Florida, about two hours north of Parkland, anti-gun students carrying signs that said “We want change!” and “Am I next?” “were met with other students’ chants of ‘Trump!’ and ‘We want guns.’”
At least that sounded peaceful. In Minneapolis, a student carrying a sign bearing President Donald Trump’s name was actually assaulted.
Nope, no arrests made for students who attack another student for carrying a Trump flag in Minneapolis. No tolerance for a student carrying a “Guns don’t kill people” sign in a small town in Minnesota.
Just thousands and thousands of high school students allowed out of class to “protest” in politically correct ways that are approved by their campus supervisors.
Meanwhile dissent is stifled sometimes forcefully.
It’s the saddest lessen American schools could teach, but one liberals definitely believe: Some rights are definitely more equal than others.
