“A pointed gun is just not appropriate for a high school,” said Alan McCartney, the interim superintendent of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk School District.

Outraged moms and dads and students lashed out on social networking and called the school district’s patriotism into question. View Full Article
THESE "TEACHERS" SHOULD REMEMBER, IT'S THESE KIDS WHO GO INTO THE SERVICE AND GO TO WAR OVERSEAS TO SAVE THEIR "SORRY" ASSES !!!
So, by forbidding the picture of a rifle,or any gun for that matter, is going to protect our kids from violence ? These are high school students for goodness sake. Do the schools really think these "bans" will do any good? You can go on the internet and see people shooting, shot and look hard enough you'll find videos of terrorists HACKING OFF HEADS, WITH A PENKNIFE ! I remember my Granddaughter being told she couldn't wear her sweatshirt [guns and roses] because of the pictue of a pistol on it, BUT she could wear it inside out. [I guess that way she wouldn't know what was on her shirt] and the moment she walked out the school door, she could turn the shirt to the right side. The day they graduate, kids can join the service and have real guns, not pictures. Thats why recruiters go to schools, TO RECRUIT
