Hot Air brings us the story of a school in Houston which had scheduled gun safety classes for the children, until some unspecified authority told the principal that it was unacceptable for the school to have any association with the NRA, the sponsor of the gun safety class. The school claims it was unaware, despite the principal appearing on a local news channel with an NRA representative and answering a question specifically about whether NRA involvement was a problem (answer then: “no”).
The official claim is the school
didn’t want to participate in an event that folks could perceive as them taking a position one way or another on the gun control debate or any other debate the NRA is involved in
But if you label an organization as so toxic that no association is permissible, even for the safety of the children, you’ve already taken a side.
