There is a false belief among those who stand against gun rights that when a gun owner does not have the gun, he or she is helpless. That foolish train of thought was derailed as an attacker was “dropped like a sack of potatoes,” according to the Conservative Tribune. Needless to say, it did not go well for him, in the least.
The victim of the assault was blamed in backward America as a New York high-school senior “was suspended for a day for defending himself from an attack by an anti-gun student last week.” It happened “after a school assembly that featured a CNN video harshly critical of Second Amendment supporters.” Just the same, the person who started the altercation found out what it was like to be unconscious and news outlet Media Equalizer shows that the boy’s father, Brian Breault, stands behind his son’s, Christian, actions.
He certainly should, since his boy was attacked for not conforming to the accepted view at the rally, something that was well within his rights. The younger Breault was at the assembly peacefully, which was being held at Middleburgh Junior/Senior High School, in Albany, New York.
The student blamed gun owners and the N.R.A. for “hundreds of senseless tragedies,” even though it can be easily proven that guns save far more innocents than they harm or take. In fact, the rhetoric was so bad that the school apologized in writing for it even being shown, as verified by on the Middleburgh Central School’s website.
PJ Media writes that Christian Breault voiced his concerns about the errors in the video to the school nurse. Another nosey student decided to meddle in a conversation to which he was not invited into, and things got ugly. Mr. Breault wrote of the matter on Facebook.
“Another student not involved in the conversation threatened him for his view on the video going as far as telling the school nurse that he would punch Christian in the face if he didn’t stop defending the NRA,” the elder Breault wrote. “The nurse told the student he could not say that and no further action was taken.”
Later that day, Christian was attacked and he had no choice but to act accordingly. “Christian defended himself, punching the kid in the jaw, causing him to fall to the floor,” the father admitted. “The kid got up and threw an object at Christian, which he deflected.”
At this point, it is worth noting that the side of the argument that stood against weapons attempted to use a weapon of opportunity on Christian Breault. The attacker got a three-day suspension and the student who was attacked for no reason still got suspended for one day.
“I spoke to the principal of the school who was very combative and condescending to my concerns over keeping Christian safe,” Mr. Breault stated.
The high-school senior is worried that the baseless suspension could harm his ambitions of joining the Navy, so this is no small matter. Was he to stand there and allow himself to be mauled? “I personally feel my suspension shows the failure in our society and schools. My constitutional rights were violated by this student, and I defended my rights and myself from him,” he said.
The wise student also warns that this action on behalf of the school “teaches our young that they cannot defend themselves without being punished.” As someone who wishes to serve his nation, he knows a few things about when to fight, it can be imagined.
Our schools are not teaching, they are indoctrinating. At this point, they are hoping for students just to curl up in a ball when attacked and to be given a boot party until (hopefully) some member of the faculty shows up before permanent damage is dealt, or worse.
If that is an education, perhaps the walkouts were not such a bad idea, after all.
