This is disgusting.
The Daily Paul is reporting that Guyer High School in Denton, TX is using an AP history book that has rewritten the Second Amendment. The book, titled United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination contains an obviously incorrect version of the Second Amendment – see photo below.
I really hope this is a hoax. If true, this goes well beyond revisionist history and is instead full-on active indoctrination. The text is obviously altered to lead readers to believe that the right to keep and bear arms applies to state militias only.
If any of you happen to have children attending Guyer High School please let us know if this story is true. I’m tempted to buy a copy of this book so that I can see for myself. In the meantime, I plan to contact Guyer High School on Facebook to see if I can get an official response. If you choose to do the same, as always, please be respectful. It’s also worth noting that many other schools are likely using this book as well.
And in case you don’t already know, here’s the actual text of the Second Amendment:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Update 12:00 PM EST: Looks like this is confirmed thanks to Monderno reader Jimmy (see comments below). Here is a PDF version of the textbook, see page 102, screenshot below. I have also downloaded a copy of the PDF in case it gets taken down.
