A no compromise Second Amendment organization is coming to the defense of a young student who was suspended for handling a toy gun during a virtual class session.
On September 10, 2020, the National Foundation for Gun Rights issued a press release announcing that it will be providing legal assistance to the family of twelve-year-old Isaiah Elliott.
In late August, Elliott briefly moved a toy handgun with an orange tip during his remote class at Grand Mountain School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In addition, the school vice principal directed resource officers from the sheriff’s office to carry out a welfare check. However, Elliott’s parents recounted that they did not receive any notification about the police visit until they were on the way to the boy’s household.
Upon arrival, the deputies informed the twelve-year-old that his behavior could have led to criminal charges. Further, they warned that if Elliott committed a similar offense in the future, he could potentially face criminal charges.
“School officials inflicting a five-day suspension on a small boy for having a toy gun in his own home is disgusting, declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Foundation for Gun Rights. “Instead of apologizing to the parents, the school took the outrageous step of sending law enforcement to further intimidate the child and parents.”
“It is our hope that a big win here will send the message to bureaucratic bullies everywhere to back off and stop harassing innocent children,” commented Brown.
A similar case in Colorado involved eleven-year-old Maddox Blow, who ended up finishing his online quiz early, and proceeded to grab an airsoft gun.
His teacher was able to catch this incident after watching a recording of the session. The teacher then called local police to visit Maddox’s home for a welfare check. Maddox would end up getting a four-day suspension.
At the moment, the National Foundation for Gun Rights is looking at all legal means to help these families who find themselves intimidated by education officials that are all too happy to use law enforcement against children.
Over the past decade, Colorado’s gun politics have moved in a decidedly anti-gun direction. Incidents like these show how far the state is descending in terms of anti-gun pettiness.
If it weren’t for organizations such as NAGR and its affiliates, the state would likely be getting away with even worse criminal actions.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
