Student asked to cover Star Wars shirt because of gun

A man in Texas was outraged after his son was told his Star Wars shirt was too violent to wear at school.

Joe Southern says his son has worn the shirt to school several times without any problems. But last week, school officials told the boy he was violating their dress code because of the laser gun held by the character shown on the shirt.

The middle schooler was only asked to zip up his jacket, but the school could have asked him to change or even suspend him.

Southern says the incident amounts to a violation of the First Amendment.
