Check Out How a Texas High School Text Book Defines the 2nd Amendment September 19, 2013

Sean Getts, a dad in Denton, Texas, was surprised to open his daughter’s AP United States history book and find it had rewritten the second amendment.  He snapped a photo and posted it to Facebook with this caption:

Looks like I’ll be educating the school system.

The book, which is apparently used at Guyer High School in Denton, describes the second amendment as “The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”

However, the actual second amendment reads: “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.”

The photo went viral, and people immediately began to organize parents who’d like to discuss this textbook with the school administrators.

In the past 200 years, the Constitution has been amended 27 times.  But who needs Article V, if text book publishers can just change parts of it to reflect their personal preferences?
