JONESBORO, AR- Members of Parent-Teacher Organizations in 20 school districts filed lawsuits in county courts throughout the state of Arkansas today, challenging school dress codes. The lawsuits specifically target provisions against sleeveless shirts and tank tops claiming they violate students' constitutional rights to "bare arms".

Representing the parents in all the cases is Jonesboro lawyer Bartholomew Leighton, who says the lawsuits were conceived in a workshop at this year's state convention held last month in Little Rock. An attendee at the workshop, Leighton, along with PTO leaders throughout the state decided that an organized effort was needed to protect student's rights.

"We teach our young people about freedoms involving religion and assembly, and then purposely and intentionally trample the most basic of their constitutional protections. It's not fair to them, their parents, or to clothing departments in Wal-Marts across the state. Someone has to take a stand, and that is exactly what we are doing today," Bartholomew wrote in a released statement.

When asked about the lawsuits, Attorney General Brayden Robertson expressed surprise, "I don't know anything about it, and to think all these years my wife has told me, 'No one wants to see that.' Maybe we all need a civics lesson. Regardless, I don't think our public schools are the proper forum for putting on 'The Gun Show'."

It would appear that the next chapter in constitutional law is going to come from the state of Arkansas.
