Andrew Lampart, a senior at Nonnewaug High School, discovered that he couldn't get on the National Rifle Association's website while on campus as he was doing research for a classroom debate on gun control in May.
"So, I went over to the other side," Lampart told WTIC. "And I went over on sites such as Moms Demand Action or Newtown Action Alliance and I could get on these websites but not the others."
The 18-year-old decided to investigate further by broadening his search terms to political parties in Connecticut.
"I immediately found out that the State Democrat website was unblocked but the State GOP website was blocked," Lampart said.
The student took it a step further and looked at websits focusing on abortion issues and religion. He discovered that "right-to-life" groups were blocked by the firewall but that Planned Parenthood and Pro-Choice America weren't.
