Student threatened with suspension for wearing Marines T-shirt with picture of two rifles on it

Can't school officials differentiate a picture of a rifle on a T-shirt honoring the Marines and a real gun that threatens people?  Of course they can.  This is just an attempt to terrify students about guns.  From Fox News:
An Illinois father wants a school district to reconsider its dress code after his son was asked to remove a U.S. Marines T-shirt or be suspended, FoxNews.com has learned. 
Daniel McIntyre, 44, of Genoa, told FoxNews.com that his 14-year-old son, Michael, was asked to remove the T-shirt by eighth-grade teacher Karen Deverell during reading class at Genoa-Kingston Middle School on Monday. Deverell, citing the school’s dress code, said the garment’s interlocking rifles was problematic and had to be removed from sight, McIntyre said. 
“My son is very proud of the Marines, and, in fact, of all the services,” McIntyre said. “So he wears it with pride. There are two rifles crossed underneath the word ‘Marines’ on the shirt, but to me that should be overlooked. It’s more about the Marines instead of the rifles.” . . .

They even want to ban images of guns. That's how far they want to go with their "gun control".

I recommend the teacher be removed rather than the t-shrt.
