With liberals it is not about guns, but about control.

A workbook given to Illinois middle schoolers redefines the Second Amendment. The workbook entry was pointed out by the father of a seventh-grader in Springfield, and posted to a Facebook page named Illinois Gun Owners Rights.
Instead of teaching the Constitution’s text, which states, “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 school district replaced that with its own interpretation.
“This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison. The founding fathers included this amendment to prevent the United States from acting like the British who had tried to take weapons away from the colonists,” the workbook stated.
The school’s superintendent, Bob Hill, defended the wording, arguing that it reflects the reality of the Second Amendment “in the context of 2014.” Nevertheless, parents were outraged at the school’s decision, with the teacher and the head of the history department agreeing with them that the lesson should be changed.
