Endeavor Academy, a high school located in Centennial, Colorado, informed Fox 31 of their decision to suspend a 17-year-old student for holding a gun on social media.
Alexandria Keyes was suspended for five days due to “safety” concerns.
A few weeks ago, Keyes posted a photo to Snapchat of her and her brother, a U.S. Army veteran, holding guns and flipping off the camera with a confederate flag in the background.
Keyes claimed that the explicit gesture was supposed to be a message to the enemies her brother fought during his time serving in the Army.
The school asserts that Keyes’ social media posts “concerned the school community and resulted in multiple parents keeping their kids home from school out of concern for safety.”
Keyes and her mother, Kelley McCollum, were contacted by Reason magazine and they believe that the other posts the school cited are from earlier in the year. Eight months ago, Keyes posted a Snapchat video and picture of her shooting at a local gun club.
The high school student insists she never meant to threaten anyone with her posts and that going to the shooting range is something she frequently does with her mom and brother.
“I want them to know the meaning behind the post was completely innocent. I thought it was fun. I was going out with my brother to have a good time,” she said when Fox 31 reached out to her.
McCollum was incensed.
“She didn’t break any laws. She didn’t break any rules, and what she did was completely within her rights,” McCollum told Fox 31. “I said, ‘There are 17-year-olds who go hunting. There are 17-year-olds in the military. Are you panicked because of them?’ They wouldn’t answer that question.”
McCollum disclosed to Reason that her daughter was scared to go back to school after her suspension ended because she’s “getting death threats, hate mail, and [negative] comments on her [S]napchat.”
Colorado, which used to have a very pro-gun environment, has taken an anti-gun turn in the last decade. Earlier this year, Governor Jared Polis signed a red flag gun confiscation bill into law which only enhances its anti-gun profile.
Colorado is currently ranked as the 40th best state for gun owners according to Guns & Ammo magazine.
In the current climate of political correctness, incidences like these will likely be on the uptick. BLP previously reported one case where individuals were censored on social media simply for posting images of themselves peacefully using firearms. Similarly, Liberty Conservative News reported on a case where a student was suspended for posting a photo of herself holding a gun.
These cases demonstrate how PC administrative officials are enthusiastic about silencing any display of affection towards American traditions of gun ownership and free speech.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Debunks “Fake News” Regarding Medical Resources in Dallas
Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently took the Dallas Morning News to school.
Last week, Abbott announced that the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center would be used for Wuhan Virus patients. However, the federal government allegedly told Abbott that if the county did not accept the resource, it would be moved to another place.
For the Fake News media, this story was not spicy enough.
Instead, they tried to construct a misleading narrative.
“Governor threatens to move emergency medical resources from Dallas County if they aren’t used,” the DMN’s original headline stated.
“Gov. Greg Abbott’s chief of staff said that if Dallas County doesn’t accept the facilities by 5 p.m. Monday, the federal government will have to relocate it elsewhere,” the outlet initially reported.
Abbott was in disbelief about what he was reading and told the editors that they should be “ashamed.”
He tweeted, “This is such fake news by the Dallas Morning News. The audio tape of this episode has been available to the press. Federal officials told us those resources would be needed elsewhere if Dallas County didn’t want them. @DMN should be ashamed.”
This is such fake news by the Dallas Morning News.
The audio tape of this episode has been available to the press.

The governor clarified the matter on Twitter. He stated he was the one responsible for setting up the Convention Center for Wuhan Virus care.
Abbott has shined during the Wuhan Virus crisis.
His government has passed common sense deregulation measures to help businesses operate smoothly in a time where supply chains have been disrupted.
If the media were honest, they would be praising Abbott for his leadership in a time of uncertainty.
