(WBEN-AM) In a move being praised by pro-gun activists The Grand Island School district has had a change of heart and is retracting the suspension it gave a student earlier this year after he wore a shirt with crossed rifles and the NRA logo.

According to one of the protestors, Superintendent Teresa Lawrence also read a statement during last night’s board session that says they will no longer have students with objectionable t- shirts turn them inside out to comply with the districts dress code.

School officials couldn’t be reached but activist Rus Thompson of Grand Island — who earlier led parent protests against the district over the issue — claimed “Victory” in an update on his Facebook page posted after last night’s board of education meeting.
