Student suspended over pro-2A social media photo sues school

What a student does outside of school isn’t anyone’s business, regardless of whether or not it was posted on social media.

At what point does a right become a privilege here in America?  Or, more specifically, at what point should exercising our rights affect the privileges we’ve earned.

The answer to that question could come to us from a court in Florida in the coming weeks, as a young woman’s lawsuit over her suspension looks to hold a Sunshine State school accountable for their actions.

According to a local news report, First Coast Technical College in Florida suspended a student who posted a photo of herself holding a legally purchased firearm on her Facebook page.

The student, Dai’mon Royster, filed a lawsuit in federal court this week alleging that the college violated her constitutional rights when they suspended her over the photo.

And Royster is right – the Second Amendment protects the inalienable right to bear arms here in the United States.  The controversy was ignited by a fellow student.

Royster was suspended by the college after another student reported the photo to the college’s administration. Royster claims that the college’s assistant principal told her that she had a “mean look” on her face in the photo. The assistant principal also allegedly told her that “things you do in the dark come in to the light.”

Royster has been suspended indefinitely from the college over the photo but she is hopeful that the college will reinstate her as a result of the lawsuit. The suit alleges that the college violated her first and fourteenth amendments rights by sanctioning her for a private social media post.

What a student does in their non-school hours should be of absolutely no consequence to the school itself, who, by the way, is receiving thousands of dollars in tuition for their education of Royston.
