pulled from their Clark County, Nevada schools because of a ban on bringing knives on campus.
After officials at Virgin Valley High School in Mesquite told Ryan Bundy, Welfare Cowboy’s son, that his 15-year-old daughter was not permitted to bring her pocketknife to school because Clark County School policy prohibits weapons on campus, Bundy pulled his children from school.
Bundy disputes the claim that knives — sharp, pointy metal objects — are weapons, and explained to administrators that he has always taught his children it is essential to always carry one with them.
“I’ve taught my children a knife is important to have,” Bundy said. “It’s a tool that you use, and you need to have one with you at all times.”
The Bundy children claim that they use their knives for their daily chores on the family ranch, and their father claims that the school district is attempting to make his children look like delinquents just because they are violating school policy by bringing blades on campus.
“They’re trying to make my child a criminal – and any other child a criminal – for simply having something, and that is not right,” Ryan Bundy explained.
Bundy did not explain why his children needed to have their weapons with them at school, but he said that he plans to speak with school administrators in hopes of convincing them to allow his kids to have special privileges — something he likely learned from his father, who thinks he is above paying grazing fees.
Bundy’s daughter hopes that her father resolves this insane conflict soon, as she was excited to begin her freshman year at Virgin Valley High.
“I hope that somehow figures this out because I still would like to go to this school,” she said “I really don’t want to be homeschooled.”
And who can blame her? Would you want this man teaching you…anything?
