(LOS ANGELES TIMES) An Orange County high school student says she feels like her 1st Amendment rights were violated when campus officials told her to remove a National Rifle Assn. T-shirt she was wearing or face disciplinary action.
Haley Bullwinkle, 16, heeded the demand, took off the white T-shirt and slipped on a school shirt that officials at Canyon High in Anaheim handed her, but came home confused and frightened, said her father, who got the shirt when he joined the NRA.
“I felt like they were violating my rights, my freedom of speech,” the sophomore said. “I want to be able to wear what I want to wear within reason.”
