Teacher outrageously gives zeros to students who wrote about hunting and a gun show

These teachers are just trying to traumatize students about guns.  From Fox News:
An English teacher at Denton High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth area allegedly refused to grade two student reports because they discussed guns. 
MyFoxDFW.com reports that the teacher, Dewey Christian, told his students to write a report on anything they wanted. 
Marshall Williams, one of Christian's students, told the station he chose to write about a Fort Worth gun show he had attended. He said Christian told him he would get a zero on the assignment because of the topic. 
Another student, Alex Wright, said Christian rejected his report because it mentioned hunting. 
After telling his mother, Kimberly Williams, about the incident, she and Marshall met with Christian, according to the report. 
Kimberly Williams' cell phone video recording of the meeting reportedly shows Christian explaining that he refused to grade the report because of concerns about school violence. . . . .

There are Democrats, liberal Democrats, and teachers. They poll as left-wing extremists who abhor violence.

Celebrate diversity...by punishing anyone who disagrees with you!

Nice to know this sh*t happens even in Texas. ¬.¬

Liberalism in our schools and colleges is a big long-term problem that needs to be dealt with, but unfortunately... due to the nature of the teaching profession (same for journalism), more liberals are going to be attracted to it than conservatives.

It seems to be happening a lot more frequently, but it isn't new. Fifty years ago, a friend and I were teamed to do a presentation in a high school speech class on any topic of our choice related to government. As hunters and shooters we decided to do ours on the 2nd Amendment. The teacher ordered us to change our topic and when we stuck with it, he failed us not only for the assignment but for the semester. The principal was a great guy and decided that we had only been auditing this class but were actually enrolled in another class we had previously been auditing. He informed the teacher of the other class of this change in reality. It's for people like our speech teacher and this current example that Jeff Cooper coined the term hoplophobes.
