Two California high school students were reportedly berated in class by a teacher who objected to the NRA T-shirts they were both wearing.

CBS Sacramento reported the Lodi High School sophomores' shirts featured an NRA logo on the front and, on the back, a red, white, and blue flag made up of shell casings and the words "National Rifle Association."

Charlene Craig, the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was called out, told the affiliate her daughter's history teacher lectured her, saying "guns kill people."

"She was basically being attacked in class," Craig said.

"I think he's there to teach," she said. "I don't think he's there to discuss his personal beliefs. . . . He basically yelled at her, telling her that she would be writing an essay if she disagreed with him."

Craig said the other student was sent to the principal's office, CBS reported.

The school's dress code says students cannot wear shirts that show weapons; there was no gun on either T-shirt.

The Lodi Unified School District said it was taking steps to re-educate teachers on the dress code policy, the affiliate reported.
