School Apologizes to Student, Says She Can Wear NRA Shirt

After ordering student Haley Bullwinkle to change clothes because her NRA shirt was deemed “offensive,” Canyon High School in Anaheim Hills has relented, apologized, and made it clear that Bullwinkle can wear the shirt again if she wants.

As Breitbart News reported on October 3, Bullwinkle and her father were told the shirt with an image of a buck, an American flag, a hunter’s silhouette, and the inscription of the NRA violated the schools policy against “offensive, violent, or divisive clothing.”

However, with the NRA threatening a lawsuit and a public relations nightmare on its hands, the school and the school district changed course.

According to an NRA news release, Orange County School superintendent Michael L. Christensen announced today that Haley’s NRA shirt “was not contrary to the school dress code policy and the student will be permitted to wear the shirt.”

Haley and her family also received an apology and “assurance that training will be provided to staff” so this kind of thing does not happen again.
