Wisconsin gun-grabbers have forced the cancelation of a long-standing Veterans Day tradition in the Eau Claire area school district. As a result, The Patriotic Council says they will not be able to educate children about the sacrifices veterans have made this year. Among several reasons for the cancellation was a 21-gun salute.
Kaye Olsen, President of The Patriotic Council, commented:
“Now as the last few years have gone on, with the school shootings and everything, it’s getting harder to do our veterans programs like we want to. It’s really hard to tell the veterans they’re not allowed to bring those rifles in. Which, the only purpose is, to honor our flag and our country and to teach the kids.”
Tim Libham, the Executive Director of Administration for the Eau Claire school district, remarked:
“We like to honor the veterans; we bring them in on a regular basis. There are just some conditions that we have to adhere to and the shooting of guns, even with blanks, is something we don’t feel is appropriate given society, and the concerns that we have and that the community has, on school premises.”
Given the importance of the Second Amendment, children should learn about firearms and gun safety in school. There is no better way to teach them these principles and impart a healthy respect for those who defend our country than to bring veterans into schools for traditions like the one Wisconsin schools used to partake in.
