Some parents in Hampton, Georgia were outraged to learn that their middle school children were being used as pawns to advance the liberal agenda at school. The kids got an assignment that made them write letters to lawmakers demanding stricter gun control.

Seventh-Grade Assignment: Write Letters to Lawmakers Begging for Gun Control
Students at Hampton Middle School in Hampton, Ga., were given a homework assignment that required them to write a letter asking lawmakers for stricter gun-control laws.
The seventh-grade social-studies assignment, a copy of which was obtained by Blue Lives Matter, stated:
“For this assignment, you are writing a letter to the lawmakers of the United States. The purpose of this letter is to pressure lawmakers to have stricter gun laws in the United States. Your letter should contain at least five complete sentences. Make sure that you use proper grammatical skills when writing your letter,” read the assignment given out by social studies teacher Corey Sanders to his students at Hampton Middle School.
A parent of one of the students, William Lee, told Blue Lives that his son came home from school “and said he had to write a paper on gun control.”
“I looked at it, and I told my son, ‘No, you’re not doing that assignment,’” Lee said. “Then I emailed his teacher the next day and told him that my son would not be writing that.”
Imagine the left’s outrage if the same thing had been done demanding an end to abortion.
It would be front page news at the New York Times.
