Whitehead: Students stood up for 1st Amendment

Officials at a California high school have admitted they were wrong to reprimand two students for wearing NRA t-shirts.

One girl at Lodi High School was kicked out of her history class for wearing the t-shirt. She and another girl, also wearing an NRA shirt, were then lectured by the teacher who told them guns are bad.

John Whitehead, a civil liberties attorney who leads The Rutherford Institute, says he applauds the girls for refusing to remove their shirts.

"Free speech, as we used to know it, is either going to go down the tube if people don't start standing up for it," says Whitehead, who is known for fighting for free speech and fighting against government censorship.
