Jared Marcum is an eighth grader who attends middle school in West Virginia. He was suspended and jailed for wearing a NRA shirt that supports the first and second amendment. His shirt states" Protect Your Rights" with a gun and at the bottom is says the 2nd. A teacher demanded him to take his shirt off or turn it in side out. He refused and she took him to the office and the police showed up and took him down to the station and he told the officer he has right to wear his shirt and it supports the bill of right the officer charged him for being unreasonable and he was suspended from school and the next day almost half of the school wore NRA shirts to stick up for Jared and he soon got his rights from the school later on..
