There has been much made of the signs carried by students in yesterday’s national school walkout. One of the more curious slogans advised that “the second amendment isn’t meant to protect our citizens“ (a good follow-up assignment for the teen carrying this sign would be to read up on the history of that amendment and write a report on her findings). Another sign read “Demilitarize the police,” while a third, held aloft by a black student, seemed to belong at another rally. It read “Give us our reparations.“

Yet, of all the signs that liberal broadcast journalists cooed and fawned over, none has gained the national attention of a sign carried by Kenny MacDonald, a student at New Prague High School in New Prague, Minn. The boy’s principal certainly noticed the sign. He even ordered the teen off school property and threatened to have him arrested.

So what was on Kenny’s sign? It said that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”

The boy posted a video of his encounter with the principal on Facebook. So far, it has been viewed one and a half million times.

One can only deduce from this incident that the school has a zero tolerance policy for the truth.
