    Textbook version: "The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia."


    Actual 2nd Amendment: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."


    Your Call to Action:


    1. Call Guyer High School and tell the appropriate person something like the following:


    "Hello, my name is _______________. I saw that your AP History course has issued a book titled, United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination. In this book, on page 102, the definition provided for the Second Amendment is incorrect and seems to be suggesting that only members of a State Militia are allowed to keep and bear arms. Who made the decision to use this text book? I'd like them to issue a public statement on this book's attempt to redefine the 2nd Amendment and why they chose to use it. We would also like this issue to be discussed at the next school board meeting. Please include it on the official agenda."

    Sorry but seems speculative with the info provided. Do you have some confirmation it's true?

    Incredible!

    Now, don't shoot the messenger and clearly "in a state militia" is wrong but, above your well mani'd finger it reads "Here is a summary .... "

    Glockster, you and I have spoken and you know I got nothing but respect for you. And no Im not shooting the messenger.....but I for one dont want my rights "summarized". Summarizing them leaves some VERY important details out.

    I agree completely Dusty. By summarizing AND changing the wording, they are essentially re-writing history.

    You (generally speaking) are entitled to your opinion but, you are not entitled to your own facts.


    *spoke - :p

    I'm not sure singling out Denton or any other district is the correct (or only) response to be taken.

    My bet is it filtered down through the TEA and probably the NEA also.
