    SAF tells Conn. school district to stop blocking pro-gun websites

    The Second Amendment Foundation is vowing “prompt legal action” following reports yesterday that a Connecticut school district’s filtering system was blocking access to websites belonging to firearms rights advocacy groups, while allowing access to gun control organizations in what appears to be a clear violation of the First Amendment.

    In a blunt letter to Superintendent Jody Ian Goeler at Connecticut’s Regional School District 14, SAF General Counsel Miko Tempski warned, “Once a school chooses to provide internet access, the First Amendment prohibits it from selectively censoring access to websites based on their particular viewpoints.”

    I noted this the other day .... a FOIA request will be provided to them to see if they stupidly reduced the policy down on paper....


    Update:

    Called school, filed request for records via verbal request
    School said they are v. busy dealing with this issue.
    School said ISP provided just general categories of items to block
    School cited Child Protective Act (fed or state?) as reason for blocking some websites
    School said that some sites were unblocked via teacher or student request (form produced ~ ie record will be made available)
