Will the 2nd Amendment Be Destroyed By the Biden Admin?
Cheerleaders a the school were placed on probation by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association after holding the banner at a recent football game.
The Charlotte Observer reported that the terms of the probation were not clearly defined and that the squad was expected to continue cheerleading.
Reaction to the probation was mixed although Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) said he was “concerned” that students were “being punished for exercising their First Amendment right to free speech.”
As Stanly Co's Congressman, I am concerned our students are being punished for exercising their First Amendment right to free speech.
