A West Virginia teen who was arrested and suspended for wearing a National Rifle Association T-shirt to school returned to class Monday wearing the same shirt that got him into trouble.
Jared Marcum, 14, was joined by about 100 other students across Logan County who wore shirts with a similar gun rights theme in a show of support for free speech.

Way to go Jared. Next he needs to wear a shirt with a picture of a middle finger sticking up.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
If i was Him I would wear NRA shirts every day to class. NRA needs to donate some merchandise to this kid so he can exercise his first amendment rights.
I love the fact that this kid is making a stand. I think his parents have done right by him...
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
Good for him!
Only problem is they will be watching him! Once he steps over some line they will make another example of him, kids make mistakes . That is part of growing up. He is paying a huge price for what he believes in,
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
So are they dropping the charges and expunging his record of the arrest?

Glad to see this. The school (and the local PD) have opened a big can of worms they will probably wish they hadn't. I'll bet they wish they could go back and put the genie back in the bottle.
Kudos to Jared!..stick it to them! Wonder what would of happened had Jared burned his NRA shirt and an effigy of Wayne Lapierre at the school entrance. The administrators would probably would find a way to get him a full ride scholarship to the indoctrination center of his choice.

Just goes to show you, WV has dimwits for teachers just like NY, CA and NJ.
The article says:
Mr. White said Jared was arrested on two charges of disrupting the educational process and obstructing an officer, but predicted those charges would be dropped.
Arrested for disrupting the educational process? Didn't the teacher do that by demanding he remove a t-shirt that did not fall into any of the "banned in school" guidelines? Evidently they don't have a very high standard for the "educational process" if a teacher doesn't even know the rules of the school.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
