A 7th grader attending Nichols Middle School (NMS) in Massachusetts is filing a lawsuit against the school for purportedly violating the student’s First Amendment right in March by forcing the student to remove his shirt that said, “There are only two genders.”

The student, Liam Morrison and his family, have now taken legal action against the school by hiring the Massachusetts Family Institute to represent them in the case against the school. Morrison alerted the school that on May 5th he had planned on wearing the shirt to school again. In response, attorneys representing NMS told the organization fighting for the 7th grader’s First Amendment right that they would continue to prohibit him from wearing the shirt.

Following the school’s remarks, Liam chose to wear a shirt that said, “There are censored genders.” The student was told to take it off immediately after entering the school.

As quoted from Fox News, Liam stated,

“So what happened is very, very shortly after I arrived, I was actually a bit early, is just as the school was opening up– it didn’t really take long for someone to walk into my homeroom and [someone] to tell me, ‘Hey, I need you to follow me,’”

“And knowing the shirt I was wearing and even though how different it was, I figured out that they would probably want me to come to the principal’s office. And after I had followed them, I went to the room that they told me to, and I already took my shirt off because I knew that that’s what they were going to ask me to do.”

Moreover, Liam has been shown an amount of respect and gratitude by his classmates for standing up for his beliefs and showing the school that he is not backing down from the outrageous attack on him.

Furthermore, in an interview that aired on Fox News Digital, Sam Whiting, a staff attorney for MFI said, “Liam did everything correct in this situation. He hasn’t disrupted anything. He hasn’t harassed anyone. And yet they’re still censoring him just because they don’t like what his shirt had to say. And that’s made even more obvious by the fact that they made him take off a censored version of the shirt. It didn’t even say anything about gender. It just made a statement about censorship. And because Liam was wearing it, they made him take it off again.”

As much of Americans, Liam is tired of being silenced for his own beliefs. The United States of America is in a contentious and perplexed period of its life cycle that has created a great divide amongst the citizens living within the country. Liam stated that he did not have intentions of targeting any group or demographic of people by wearing his shirt and wore the shirt solely based on his own beliefs.

Liam said,

“Always fight for what you believe in and well, never let anyone stop you from believing really…” “To be honest, in the place that we live, or in the time that we live, there are a lot of people that try and make it so that you’re not allowed to believe what you can. But, it’s being taken away from us. And being able to speak up not just about your own, being able to voice your opinion, but for everybody else.”

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation

In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.

The charges against Hunter Biden include:

• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm

• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer

•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance

According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.

Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.

The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.

Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.

Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
