When the marching band from East Carolina University indulged an anti-American protest during the playing of the national anthem by taking a knee on the football field claiming they were exercising their First Amendment rights, one of the college’s professors had the perfect constitutional lesson for these special snowflakes by bringing a gun to school to exercise her Second Amendment rights!
At the beginning of the October 1 game between East Carolina University and the University of Kentucky, about a dozen or so members of the “Marching Pirates” marching band decided to stop playing and take a knee during their rendition of the national anthem. They claimed they were joining the anti-American protests of San Francisco 49ers second string quarterback Colin Kaepernick who says the U.S.A. has never been great because we are all evil racists.
The crowd immediately started booing the marching band as they indulged their First Amendment rights to protest the country, Breitbart News reported.

A group of school administrators quickly criticized the band by releasing a letter apologizing to fans and saying such protests would not be tolerated. On the other hand the school’s chancellor, Cecil Staton, was supportive of the band’s efforts and it was soon learned he knew ahead of time about the band’s plans.
But one ECU professor also had something to say about these protests that will have social justice warriors and anti-gun fanatics screaming bloody murder.
ECU Professor Tracy Tuten said she was supportive of students exercising their First Amendment rights, but after she found out that Chancellor Staton had pre-knowledge of the band’s intended protest, she said that if the kids are going to have their protest sanctioned by the Chancellor on Constitutional grounds, then SHE should be allowed to carry her gun on campus to exercise her Second Amendment rights, gun rights website BearingArms.com reports.
Professor Tuten said that she alerted the college via a letter that she intends to start openly carrying her gun and noted that she didn’t care if the school sanctioned her right to carry or not.
Here is the Professor’s letter.
In the meantime, these protests have spread to several college and high school sports but that didn’t stop a little boy with cerebral palsy from shaming them all by standing for the anthem despite his disabilities.
