Despite having tenure, N.J. teacher fired over gun ownership comments

[Ed. – Only one correct opinion.]

There are some localities that are so vehemently anti-gun that it’s not a good idea to mention you’re a gun owner. I’ve talked before about the stigmatization of the gun owner, and these places are hotbeds of such thinking. They see gun owners as a menace to society, despite absolutely no evidence of them being any such thing.

It’s a sentiment that is likely to continue as time rolls on unless something actively makes it stop.

In fact, I’m fairly sure it led to one teacher in New Jersey losing their job.

A state arbitrator has ruled the Westfield School District is justified in firing a tenured teacher accused of making angry statements about his gun ownership, something the district claims created an atmosphere of fear at Tamaques Elementary School.
