    Hundreds of Pennsylvania high school students staged a walkout after their school district said transgender students may use any restroom they want.

    On 22 August 2023, Gabriel Metcalf was arrested for possessing a firearm in a federal gun-free zone in Billings, Montana. Gabriel and his mother live across the street from the Broadwater Elementary School. Billings police officers had previously told Gabriel and his mother, Vivian, that Gabriel was not breaking any laws.Some people had complained when they saw Gabriel outside his home with a single-shot 20 gauge shotgun. Gabriel had armed himself because of a two-year campaign of terror conducted by a former neighbor, David Carpenter, and associates. Over the course of two years, Carpenter was the subject of a restraining...

    In the ongoing Gun Free School Zone case against Gabriel Metcalf in Billings, Montana, Gabriel’s federal public defender, Russel Hart, has filed a motion requesting a detention hearing. The Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) Thomas K. Godfrey has indicated he opposes re-opening a detention hearing. This means Godfrey wants to keep Gabriel Metcalf in a federal lockup in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility until trial. A trial could be years away. This case could go all the way to the Supreme Court. The magistrate judge, Timothy J. Cavan, ordered the United States representative in this matter, AUSA Godfrey, to file...

    With the ongoing case in Billings, Montana, where Billings Police collaborated with federal officials to arrest Gabriel (Gabe Metcalf) for exercising his Second Amendment rights, a recap of the history of the federal Gun Free School Zone Acts (GFSZA) is in order. The GFSZA appears to be designed as a direct attack on the exercise of Second Amendment rights and the right to be able to defend against criminal attacks.The first GFSZA was passed into law in 1989-90. The federal Gun-Free School Zone Act was introduced by some of the most rabid Anti-Second Amendment zealots, Herb Kohl of Wisconsin and...

    A Ron Desantis-backed conservative activist was named in a civil rights complaint against a Florida college — after he misgendered an educator who used ze/zir pronouns. The Biden administration’s Department of Education opened an investigation into the New College of Florida after it received a complaint last month alleging that the school’s board has created a “hostile” environment for transgender and disabled students and staff.

    COVID-19 cases are on the rise and raising anxiety around the possibility that schools could implement mask mandates or close down again. Surges of COVID-19 cases in Texas and Kentucky have caused three school districts to briefly suspend in-person classes. But few schools have taken those steps so far, and superintendents contend that without national guidance, it is highly unlikely we’ll see a return of mass closures or mask mandates. In the post-emergency era of COVID-19, schools no longer have the comprehensive surveillance data that was readily available during the pandemic, though some local data remains available to inform their...

    A preliminary appearance has been scheduled for Gabriel Cowan Metcalf on the charge of possessing a firearm in violation of the federal Gun Free School Zone Act in Billings, Montana. The Gun Free School Zone Act is a controversial law that had been found to be unconstitutional in 1994 and then was slightly altered. It has not been considered by the Supreme Court since 1994, long before the Heller, McDonald, and Bruen decisions. The preliminary appearance will be on Monday, 28 August, at 9 AM. The criminal complaint has been posted. According to the criminal complaint, Billings Police had received...

    The Big Apple is scrambling to get up to speed for the first day of school next week with 500 new migrant kids enrolled for the first time and a possible school bus strike looming. And yet, New York City School Chancellor David Banks claims it’s just business as usual. “Everything has been okay,” Banks assured New Yorkers at a press conference Wednesday. “We have room for the students, our principals, our superintendents, outside communities have worked extremely well.” Just over 19,000 kids in temporary housing are enrolled in the city school system — the overwhelming majority of whom are...

    Some on the Left, such as Mehdi Hassan, are still on a crusade to convince Americans that the shutdowns and mandates during COVID were great for everybody.Last week he did a show focused on how closing schools down during COVID was a good idea (although, in a fascinating twist, he sometimes seemed to imply that time in school itself is bad for kids). You can watch his idiocy here:Mehdi Hassan is such a political shill that he would rather twist logic and reason to justify school closures, rather than accept the simple fact that this position pushed by the Democrats...

    WASHINGTON — President Biden told middle school students on their first day of classes Monday that he understands it’s hard to return after “not doing any work” — after he received Republican criticism for spending most of the past month on vacation. “I tell you what, the hardest thing, I think, is when you come back — what’s the matter, baby? You look at me like, ‘I don’t want to be in this math class’?” Biden told students at Eliot-Hine Middle School on Capitol Hill, breaking off to call out one young scholar. “The hardest thing,” the president resumed, “is...

    Hammering K-12 school children nonstop about the dangers of climate change in every class, even math, art and gym, is child abuse. Barely one-third of fourth graders can read or do math at grade level, according to the latest national scores, but climate activists are demanding kids hear about global warming in every class. New Jersey mandates it, and now Connecticut is following suit as the school year opens. In New York City, Mayor Eric Adams is requiring every public school participate in Climate Action Day. The climate push is nakedly political, spearheaded in New Jersey by the governor's wife,...
