Texas parents want history book banned over Second Amendment ‘militia’ definition
Mentioning the actual wording of the 2nd Amendment is apparently an attempt to ban guns now.
Parents in one Texas school district are demanding that one commonly-used history book be banned because they say that the mention of the word “militia” in a sentence about the “Second Amendment” is indoctrinating children to believe they don’t have a right to own firearms.
Guyer High School junior Brie Getts told KTVT that she was doing her homework with the book U.S. History: Preparing for Advanced Placement Exams when she noticed something “weird” with the lesson about the Bill of Rights on page 102.
“It says, ‘The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia,’” she explained. “It seems to be worded weird.”

“There was no devious intention in the definition,” co-author John J. Newman said.
Sean Getts, however, refused to buy that explanation.
“I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but clearly these authors interpreted the amendment in favor of gun control,” he told Fox News. “I’m mainly concerned how this ends up in our school system.”
The actual text of the 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.”
