Teachers wants Guns!

Middle school students were assigned to write letters to congress promoting gun control

Hampton, GA – A 7th Grade social studies teacher tasked with teaching his students about Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, recently gave his students an assignment to write a letter to Congress supporting gun control.

Blue Lives Matter obtained a copy of the assignment.

The assignment “topic” was listed as “You are trying to persuade lawmakers to have stricter gun laws to help prevent another school shooting from taking place.”

“For this assignment, you are writing a letter to the lawmakers of the United States. The purpose of this letter is to pressure lawmakers to have stricter gun laws in the United States. Your letter should contain at least five complete sentences. Make sure that you use proper grammatical skills when writing your letter,” read the assignment given out by social studies teacher Corey Sanders to his students at Hampton Middle School.

William Lee told Blue Lives Matter that his son brought the assignment home from school and showed it to him.

“I asked him what he had for homework that night, and he said he had to write a paper on gun control,” said Lee, who is a law enforcement officer in another county from where his son goes to school.

“I said uh oh – let me see the assignment,” the father said.

After reading his son’s homework assignment from Sanders, Lee went into the Google classroom and checked the assignments.

“I looked at it, and I told my son, ‘no, you’re not doing that assignment,’” Lee said. “Then I emailed his teacher the next day and told him that my son would not be writing that.”

The teacher wrote back to Lee and told him that it was fine, and that he wouldn’t mark off his son for not turning it in, he said.
