Some Colorado teens are in trouble after their prom. Not because of their outfits; because of their photo props.
Colorado Prom Picture Creates Controversy With Liberals
By Meredith Clark
The photo in question, which Denver's Fox 31 reported was taken before Chapparal High School's prom last weekend, shows three boys and five girls posed around a Confederate flag. Two of the girls are holding guns, which appear to have some serious firepower.
Posing with one of the nation's most easily reconizable symbols of white supremacy and racial oppression as a lark — especially when there are ongoing protests against police brutality and institutional racism across the country — is seriously questionable. And, the mother of one of the boys told Fox31 that parents were encouraging the kids to ham it up with the flag and the guns. "There were other parents there fully supporting it and taking pictures,” she said.
Aside from the bad taste of posing with the Stars and Bars — are prom pictures with guns a thing now? Is this the next step after guns as wedding accessories?
In answer to Ms. Clark's liberal rant: 1. Firearms make the BEST wedding gifts or gifts to the best man or groomsmen. After all, what can you use ALL of your life and then pass on to your kids? 2. Students can sure pose with firearms. Why not? The more firepower, the better. The photo was not taken on school grounds. 3. Why care about which American flag you are holding? First Amendment. Second Amendment. Read 'em now... 4. Have the liberal cry babies not heard of Annie Oakley or Plinky Topperwein? These women had some SERIOUS firepower! Of course!
Looks like a fun prom to me! The seniors will always cherish that photo! Bet it makes it to every one of their reunions until they are old and gray. Of course! Freedom of Speech! Freedom to keep and bear firearms! I would bet most of the pictured students are adults and if not, their parents were right there with them. Sounds like great families and students to me! I had numerous photos of myself and my friends taken when I was in high school! They are my most cherished of all photos and we get them out regularly and have a big hoot.
