    NRA threatened OUSD

    SPECIAL REPORT
    NRA reports that it threatened legal action against OUSD over Canyon shirt controversy

    The National Rifle Association's legal arm-the Institute for Legislative Action reports on its website that it had threatened the Orange Unified School District with legal action over Canyon High School  student Haley Bullwinkle's right to wear an NRA shirt.

    That threatened legal action prompted a very public apology from the Orange Unified School District's Superintendent and a promise of "training" for the Canyon High School staff to make sure a similar incident does not happen.

    Two years ago, a similar incident over a cultural insensitive high school Senior day called
    "Senioris" and "Senioritas" at Canyon High also prompted an apology and training, but that incident was handled at a lower staff level.

    The current controversy quickly became a national story this week after being  reported by local media.  However, the threat of NRA legal action has not been reported.

        
    The NRA-ILA site reports the student Haley Bullwinkle and her parents:

    "have received an unconditional apology from Michael Christensen, the Superintendent of Schools, Orange County Unified School District, for the school’s indefensible actions after attorneys from the National Rifle Association contacted the school district."

    The site also includes the full link of the district's statement (LINK BELOW).
