Not Backing Down: 8th Grader Suspended, Arrested Over His NRA T-Shirt Returns to School…Wearing the Exact Same Shirt

Disciplined 8th-grader Jared Marcum returned to class on Monday after being suspended from school and arrested for refusing to change his NRA t-shirt at the request of one of his teachers. The shirt apparently pictured a firearm and the words “protect your rights.”

However, he apparently hasn’t learned his lesson — assuming that there was even any lesson to be learned. Fresh off his suspension, Marcum showed up to school on Monday wearing the exact same NRA shirt that sparked what many have labeled “t-shirt control.”

There were also other people wearing matching shirts in support of Marcum, WOWK-TV reports.

“There’s a lot of people wearing this same exact shirt, showing great, great support and I really appreciate it,” the student said Monday before going to school.

  1. Mr. Lardieri — just a quick note that many have seen Jared’s story. In speaking just for myself, I definitely have his back. I suspect I am not alone. Please keep us posted as this evolves. Jared seems like a great kid. He is living the statement I ask my kids to think about constantly, which is, “if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”. Bless you, your family and your efforts.
