After serving his one-day suspension, the West Virginia eighth grader was back in school, yesterday, wearing the very same NRA tee-shirt that got him in trouble.
In a move The Daily Caller can only characterize as courageous, 14-year-old Jared Marcum returned to Logan Middle School in Logan County, West Va., wearing exactly the same shirt, which depicts a hunting rifle with the statement “protect your right.”
According to Fox News, other students across the rural county showed their support for Marcum by wearing similar shirts to school.
“There’s a lot of people wearing this same exact shirt, showing great, great support and I really appreciate it,” Marcum said in the morning outside the schoolhouse door, according to local NCB affiliate WBOY-TV.
Jared’s outraged father told 13 News, “I don’t see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a T-shirt, especially when policy doesn’t forbid it.”
The school district’s dress code prohibits profanity, violence, discriminatory messages, but as noted in this report, gun images are not on the list.
