Daughter wearing NRA hat on field trip.
So my daughter is going on a field trip this morning. She is in the fourth grade and is going to a ranch, where they were told to bring hats along. Now, my daughter knows what the NRA is and what they're about. She can shoot a 4 inch group, at ten yards with her Ruger SR22. Point is, she's aware. SO, she really wants to wear my NRA hat. I searched the code of conduct and do not see anything prohibiting the NRA. There is only one thing, that due to my ignorance, seems like it COULD prohibit this hat...
• show evidence of membership or affiliation in any gang, unauthorized club, or organization under FMC (LOCAL)
I have searched for the meaning of FMC and cannot find anything in relation. So, as far as I'm concerned, it seems like there shouldn't be a problem. Now of coarse I can send her to school with HER hat, but she states it doesn't fit well, and wants to represent the NRA. Being the type of person I am, who basis SOME decisions on principal of relating situations, I give her the go ahead.
See the thing is, is that durring las year's election, the school was having the students vote, and according to my INFORMED daughter, the teachers were preaching about "how great" Obama is. My daughter returned home that day disturbed at everyone's decision based on some adults misguided opinion. So I figure, if they can push politics on my kid, she can wear the NRA hat.
A bone in my body telle me to just avoid conflict and send her in her small hat but the activist in me tells me to let her go in the NRA hat, and if it becomes a thing, find out why, and either suck it up cause of the "FMC" thing that I am unaware of, or make a point that they can't push politics on my daughter and deny her her right to wear a hat with a logo of an organization we morally, and politically back.
What are your thoughts? Can anyone clear up what organizations fall under the "FMC"? God bless.

Looks like the FMC is defined in the school board policy FNCA.. Try looking there.
If it were me, I would let her.. But I'm just that kind of guy that likes stirring the pot.

The spirit of

I applaud your daughter's attitude and your support, but what positive thing would she hope to accomplish?
There's a time and place for everything ... ask yourself and your daughter ... "Is this the time?"
