The latest American history textbook to “rewrite” the Second Amendment. And educators wonder why Americans look with suspicion upon the educational community. Photo courtesy TTAG.

First there was a revisionist, downright false description of the 2nd Amendment in United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examinationa textbook used by a Texas school district.

Allegedly, that school district is telling teachers to make sure students read the real amendment.

A reader of The Truth About guns found a troublesome entry in another American History book:  The American Pageant—A History of the Republic Advanced Placement Edition.

The textbook teaches (see photo at the top of this post) the Second Amendment as: “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms (i.e. for military purposes) shall not be infringed.”

  1. Ya think that’s bad? See what the second text did to the First Amendment. “Congress may make no laws that infringe a citizen’s right to freedom of … press….” It doesn’t even make sense grammatically.

    And, “separation of church and state!” There it is! The Libs have been crying about this for decades and I finally found it, in the constitution as rewritten by a texas school book company!


  2. OOps. Really. Education reform with no respect for the “written law” as a foundation of this country. Social engineering for keeping the flowing supply of liberal anti-gunners. North Korea, USSR, etc. etc. has provided a model for our next country. Captive minds and captive audience for educational conditioning. Free POPTART guns and milk for everyone.

  3. Did you also notice at the end of the first amendment (in the second picture) the added part about “separation of church and state,” a phrase which appears nowhere in the constitution?

  4. I noticed a heated topic on IC about this. Some guy was arrested for speaking out about it in a school board meeting. Should we, if we are in a meeting, sit by and listen to the propaganda or risk arrest and speak out?
