This is taken from a workbook of a seventh grade class at Grant Middle School in Springfield, Illinois.
“This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison,” the handout says.
Of course the Second Amendment says no such thing, indeed saying, simply:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
The parent who discovered this confirmed the account to the Examiner.
According to the parent who discovered this, he complained about it to the school. The school told him it had nothing to do with Common Core, but had been constructed by two teachers at the school and was only being taught at Grant.
The parent said the reference was meant to incorporate state regulations, but obviously did delineate between state regulations and the Constitution in the workbook. After a half hour discussion, the parent said the school agreed that the workbook needed to be changed.
One wonders, if these teachers could so blatantly rewrite the Constitution, what other changes they made and what else they may be teaching children?
