The child anti-gun activist David Hogg has been making the rounds on liberal media for weeks now calling for bans on guns, the abolishment of the NRA and the repeal of the Second Amendment. Now, in response to the Parkland shooting, his high school is requiring all students to carry clear backpacks and he thinks this is a major infringement on his rights. You couldn’t make this up.
From the New York Times, via Hot Air:
The Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people last month will require students to carry only clear backpacks, school administrators announced on Wednesday, after the shooting suspect’s brother was charged with trespassing on campus and two students were arrested on charges of carrying knives…
Robert W. Runcie, the superintendent of Broward County Public Schools, sent a letter to the families of Stoneman Douglas High students imposing the new backpack rule, reminiscent of security measures at airports and professional sports venues. He said any student without a clear backpack would be provided one at no cost after spring break, which takes place next week.
Students also will be issued identification badges, which they will be required to wear at all times while in school.

So taking people’s guns away is reasonable but making students carry clear backpacks is unfair?
This kid’s 15 minutes of fame should be over. He has no idea how dumb his arguments sound.
