Student Suspended for NRA Shirt

Was his rights infringed?

Shane Kinney, a 16-year-old sophomore at Grand Island High School, was confronted Tuesday after a teacher claimed his shirt was an “inappropriate” violation of the school’s dress code.

“It’s the same shirt he’s worn before, but this time they said something about it,” Shane’s father, Wayne Kinney, told WGRZ-TV.

Although the school’s dress code makes no mention of political or firearm related attire, school administrators argued that Kinney’s shirt had the ability to “disrupt or interfere with the educational process.”

“They said it was the guns,” Shane’s father said.

“They haven’t said anything bad about it, although they don’t hunt,” Kinney told WBEN Radio. “The only people giving me trouble were teachers.”

After being ordered to turn the shirt inside out by the school’s principal, Kinney refused, citing his constitutional rights.

“He said he’d rather not turn it inside out,” Shane’s father said.

The school’s principal immediately suspended Kinney, pointing to a different rule in the dress code that states, “Any student who refuses to do so or who… fails to comply shall be subject to discipline.”
