Virginia: Fairfax Co. Schools Push Anti-Gun Propaganda on 5th Graders

School ChalkBoard Punishment Student

USA – -(  A concerned parent, Darcey Geissler, has brought attention to an assignment that her son received in a Fairfax County school.

In a “lesson” on persuasive writing, students were given an anti-gun essay to evaluate, rather than something with more neutral content, so that the students could focus on the persuasive writing aspect. There was no sample essay with an opposing viewpoint presented.

Though this sample essay is ostensibly meant to be just a learning tool, it does parrot many worn-out talking points that disarmament radicals have used over the years. It claims that the Second Amendment is about hunting, that the existence of modern police forces makes the Second Amendment obsolete, and that citizens defending themselves from imminent danger while police are, at best, minutes away is somehow “tak[ing] the law into their own hands.”

It even mentions the Brady Campaign and simply describes it as “an organization to prevent violence,” without any mention of their radical policy proposals, such as gun bans and restricting the right to self-defense, or their junk lawsuits that attempt to bankrupt the firearms industry. Most recently, Brady partnered with the Mexican government against the rights of law-abiding Americans.

All this is not surprising, coming from a school system in a county that is hostile to the Second Amendment rights of its own citizens.

In 2020, the county banned firearms in many county-owned and operated locations, including its extensive public parks. While disarming law-abiding citizens, the ordinance they passed was not about safety or security. There were no measures ordered to prevent armed criminals from ignoring the arbitrary boundaries (as criminals do), such as metal detectors or increased police presence. This carry ban is currently the subject of an NRA-backed lawsuit.

This situation underscores the value of parents and guardians being involved in passing on American values, such as respect for the Second Amendment, to the next generation. Government schools in Fairfax County, despite being funded with taxpayer dollars, certainly will not.

It is an historical fact that all Dictators use and exploit young children because they are like a blank canvas and way to trusting!
Parents. It is time for you to jump up and be counted! Don’t let these Communist Bastards indoctrinate your children!


I think it was Commrade Stalin infamously declared something to the effect of “give me the children for the first seven years of their lives and I will control the nation.” When parents like these begin to yank THEIR children out of the state run schools in large numbers, THEN we will begin to see some good changes. Teach them at home, Its not that hard. I know a few hundred kids who are homeschooled, or have been and are now stable hardworking prosperous adults scooling their own children at home. Many work together, sharing the load, taking advantage of… Read more »


Lenin….Vladimir, not John…..said, “Give me the children, and I will transform the country.”


If it has nothing to do with reading writing or math or science, keep your nose out of it. You so called proffesionals can’t even teach the basics.


Cruiser – it is actually more that they WON’T because their minders are not willing to allow them to. Kids that are taught the three Rs are a lot less likely to be controlled since they are well on their way to being analytical and critical thinkers.


The NRA called Monday night. I did not answer.


They call frequently. I never answer.


Me too! They don’t even leave a message. It would be interesting to know what posh living items Wayne needs more money for now!


Amen! Me too. Some time ago, I attended a lecture on campaigning for office. One of the speaker’s suggestions was to always include in mailings a request for funds. He warned however that if you included a postage-paid envelope, you would be amazed at much of what you got back!


I get similar requests from several anti-rights organizations. They get as much of my junk mail as I can fit into their envelope. Not sure if they get charged for weight over an ounce.

Must make it interesting when they teach civics in the 7th grade, Oh wait
