A private university in North Carolina (and this embarrassed reporter’s alma mater) forced a student to remove a National Rifle Association (NRA) flag from his dorm window in late September.
“The flag first appeared last week, causing one freshman in Historic Neighborhood to take action,” according to Elon University’s news network. “The student took a photo of the flag and showed it to her Resident Assistant, who told her she would make sure it was taken down as both a fire hazard and an offensive symbol on campus.”
The school caved to the offended student’s demands, but the town’s fire chief, Alva Sizemore, disputed whether the flag was actually a “fire hazard,” raising the question of whether that explanation was just a pretext provided by the university to avoid a social justice showdown.
“We’ve never had an issue with a flag outside a window before,” Sizemore said. “Typically, we would have issues on the inside, like maybe they were hanging the flag inside, hanging it down from the ceiling.”
The student news network quoted the offended student who complained to the the university:
“In light of current events going on, the NRA is not something that should be present in a celebratory light. They need to grow up and realize that what you do has effects on people.”
The NRA fired back at the university.
“Young people need to know that they can support the Second Amendment and not be harassed or intimidated,” said spokeswoman Catherine Mortenson. “As a private institution, Elon certainly has the right to discriminate like this. We only ask that they be honest and upfront with their students about their anti-gun bias.”
The school is no stranger to social justice controversy.
In January, Wired ran a story about Computer Science professor Megan Squire, who created a data mining tool and uses the tool in conjunction with the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center to dox “white supremacists.” Squire is still employed by the university.
Elon, which does not readily list a media contact online or have an answering service, could not be reached for comment.
America First Florida Rep Anthony Sabatini Introduces Pro-Second Amendment Bills that Would Repeal Red Flag Laws and Make the State a 2A Sanctuary
Anthony Sabatini has quickly established himself as the most Pro-Trump State House Representative in Florida.
Last week, Sabatini unveiled House Memorial 1135, which directs Congress to designate Florida as a Second Amendment sanctuary state.
“Florida is the nation’s beacon of Freedom—and no state or local official should administer any unconstitutional law,” Sabatini added.
The memorial alludes to the U.S. Constitution as well as the state’s constitution as far as the right to bear arms is concerned.
On February 2x, 2021, Sabatini made an announcement with regards to his filing of HB 6083, the bill which would repeal Florida’s unconstitutional red flag law. Under red flag laws, judges have the ability to confiscate firearms without due process.
“The Bill also repeals other irrational anti-#2A laws—including the law prohibiting adults 18-20 years of age from purchasing firearms,” Sabatini commented.
For those of us with short-term memory, Florida passed a red flag gun confiscation order in 2018 under the watch of a Republican-controlled state legislature. U.S. Senator Rick Scott was governor at the time and ended up signing the red flag bill, SB 7026, into law. He was sadly rewarded with higher office by voters that election cycle.
Thankfully, the Sunshine State can count on the likes of Sabatini to make things right. More legislators will likely need to copy his example in order to rid Florida of this gun control abomination.
