That seems a strange response.
You're entitled to it though and you're thoughtfullness shows care and concern. If it's an issue, I suppose just ignore that last part about extra credit at school, that was just my mind wandering anyway.
Here's my opinion on that matter. You wouldn't be telling your teacher about guns. You'd be telling them about your own original writing, the subject being the COTUS and one of the specific amendments to that.
I'm also reminded that same document protects us in these situations of speech as well. It's the amendment preceding the second.
And although it can, as you say "go very bad", it can also be turned for the good. Sometimes the easiest path is not the "right" one.
Each person rightly should use as much caution is necessary in their environment and I wouldn't begrudge anyone for not speaking publicly about certain beliefs they hold. As long as internally we understand that the supreme law of the land, our history and foundings are nothing to be ashamed of and hidden away in a closet.
