Pro-gun groups are seething over a workbook that has been in use at Springfield’s Grant Middle School, one which the groups say paints a false picture of the Second Amendment.
That workbook… designed years ago by a teacher who is now retired… says the Amendment allows for the possession of weapons, provided they are registered.
There is no gun registration requirement in the Constitution. Interim superintendent Bob Hill is refusing to yank the book and defends the passage.
He says it explains the practical effect of the Second Amendment in modern-day America, where registration laws may be a requirement for gun owners.
Critics say the book is an attempt to “indoctrinate” children with a false view of guns… an idea that Hill calls “goofy.”
