He came to discover the Vatican, the National Right to Life, Connecticut Family (a pro-family traditional marriage organization) and the NRA were blocked. However, the student was able to visit a host of Islamic web sites, Planned Parenthood, LGBT Nation, and pro-gun control sites.
One of the lessons that Andrew Lampart learned from being on his school’s debate team was to gather facts for both sides of an argument. So last month when his law class was instructed to prepare for a debate on gun control, Andrew went online using the school’s Internet service.
“I knew it was important to get facts for both sides of the case,” said the 18-year-old at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury, Connecticut.
When Andrew tried to log onto the National Rifle Association’s website, he realized there was a problem – a big problem.
