Someone is going to go all politicially correct on them and get them kicked out of school.
my high school did them on tanks, swat vehicles, battleships, fighterplanes... never once did anyone complain
and from the few hand placements i can see, no fingers are on the triggers. granted theyre holding them one handed in the air/ground (still not pointed at anyone else) could be ALOT worse
Looks like it's already started...
And they are really upset over it because a kid was killed a couple years ago with a blank gun during a school play
I saw that this morning.
Parent Carrie Leishman was shocked by the photos, in part, she says, because the teens aren't yet old enough to buy the guns.
"Normally if those kids brought those to school, they'd be expelled from school. Yet their advisers, their football coaches, are telling them it's OK to hold the guns, to wave the guys, to have Rambo poses with the guns," she said
Leishman is also concerned because of 15-year-old Tucker Thaye, a student who went to the same school and died there in 2008. He was accidentally shot and killed by a gun being used as a prop during the school musical. "We need to do everything we can do to avoid an accident in the future," Leishman said.
SNDP, you live in Springdale?
she makes a good point- we should stop expelling kids for legally bringing guns to school (that is, when they have no malicious intent)
not in utah
Butch, Casey, Brennan, Jake, CJ, Braydon, Jamison, Collin, Trae, Ty, and Berkeley?
What school system are they from? Pretentious Middle Class Social Climber High?
they must play in a 7 on 7 league
My question is this, there appears to be 4 players holding the guns, all of the players are seniors, but not every player is holding the rifles. Is it possible that the players holding said guns are 18? I was 18 going into my senior year of high school, which would make it perfectly acceptable? This would also explain why there are no pistols in the photo.
what does being 18 have to do with it?
She thinks if you aren't old enough to buy a gun, you have to be protected from seeing one.
I'm being snarky.
Now granted, I'm admittedly not the best educated on underage firearms handling seeing as I'm 22 and it doesn't really matter at the moment, but I seem to remember in Ohio that if you were underage, as in 18, you weren't allowed to handle firearms without a parent/guardian present. If that holds true for Utah, then the bitch about high school kids handling the rifles is not only ignorant, it's null and void.
maybe a parent was taking the photo? that would qualify as 'parent/guardian present'
If they are 18, then they are completely within the law. I honestly hadn't noticed that only the seniors were holding rifles... I noticed that not everyone in the picture had them, but hadn't paid attention to the reason.
Cool that the school let it happen, but those guys all look like douche canoes. Why the hell does every school feel the need to make their football team out to be some squad of elite commandos with superhuman strength?
I'd never heard that one before.
