"Danielle Shuster is a member of the drum line for the Bethel Park High School marching band. She lettered in the Rifle Club, which she found to be an experience different from shooting skeet.

"You use a rifle, you're in the prone position and the targets are not moving," she said."

so the participation in a school sport should be a prerequisite for poses in the yearbook?

Hey, let's make up the rules as we go along

CONCORD, N.H. — Where other students might pose for their senior yearbook photo with tennis rackets or favorite cars, Blake Douglass (search) wants to be seen with his shotgun.
The 17-year-old senior filed a federal lawsuit to force Londonderry High School (search) to allow the photo and give up the policy school officials used to reject it.

"What they’re doing is basically discriminating based on content or message," said Penny Dean (search), Douglass’ lawyer and a specialist in gun cases. "You can’t do that. You might want to but you can’t — and especially you can’t with a broad policy like this."

"We want the picture in the yearbook," said Dean said after filing the lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court.

The lawsuit seeks a temporary injunction so the picture can appear in the yearbook and a permanent injunction against the "pick-and-choose policy" of what photographs are published, Dean said.

The lawsuit names the Londonderry school board members, high school principal, school superintendent, town manager and school officials involved in the production of the yearbook.

An avid hunter and trap and skeet shooter, Douglass said he decided long ago on his senior photo — an outdoor shot in a sportsman’s pose, wearing a shooting vest and holding his broke-open shotgun over his shoulder.

And we wonder why schools can't afford to pay teachers. This is just one of those frivolous lawsuits by whiners trying to get money and attention. Oh, the poor child, no doubt he's going to emotionally damaged for the rest of his life. For that they tie up our courts and waste taxpayers' money. Probably brought by some fucking attorney for a fat welfare slob looking for a big settlement so he won't have to work the rest of his life.

My old high school did, don't know if they still do, but they had small bore target and Skeet. Lee High School in Springfield, VA did as well when my kids went there (small bore only 22LR), the school provided the rifles.

I even took my old trusty 12GA double barrell shotgun to school with me on the bus when I was in 8th grade, used it as a metal shop project - no problems at all, no one even winked an eye. Got on the bus, still remember the bus driver's name, Ray Sewel. Got off the bus at the school, walked in and then went back to the shop and dropped it off in my shop locker. No permits, no nada. I did coordinate it ahead of time with both my parents and the shop teacher and my parents would have known if the gun had left the house without their permission.

Many of the school programs were supported by the Federal Government in an effort to maintain marksmanship skills - after the rude awakening with World War I - Congress created the Civilian Marksmanship Program - here is their website

- most of the programs are not school funded. Here the parents have to support and pay for/provide transportation, supplies and equipment. In some cases outside offices or the CMP assist.

BTW - easy on the fat snob lawyer thing, I got bitch slapped by Mutineer for the same stereotypical attitude

I don't think that is it at all here Kurt. I think there is a large percentage of the population really tired of Public School's no common sense zero tollerance policies. Folks like this kid and his parents who are serious hunters and shootrers who are tired of being potrayed as evil. Policies like the one this school inacted school administrators see as "safe" as they don't have to think. I don't know about you but I would prefer to have my kids educators thinking.

I shot trap in college. In fact, most of the guys I lived with WERE the trap team.

The school new it, they also knew that we kept and maintained our guns for practice and competition.

Cut to a holiday break, when an oversealous campus security guard "discovered" our cache of "guns", and a story was released to the press.

We made headlines, yet inevitably, once it was revealed that the school KNEW that we had them (unlike many of the students on campus who had guns with no training or school notification), what could they do?

Give 'em back, and wipe the egg from their faces.

Rural America has been safely handling firearms for generations.

I don't see what having a shotgun senior picture taken has with public education. He is free to have his picture taken somewhere else.

Well based on that statement, neither does the car, tennis racket or a football qualify.

I've been thinking about the concept of "zero tolerance", is it just me or does that seem to convey to kids that there are no gray areas in life, no room for compromise, no room for common sense?? I think society has jumped on the concept as a way to show a tough approach to things like drugs, sexual haressment, guns etc. Without leaving room for discussion...anyone remember the 6 year old suspended for kissing a girl on the playground??

A co-worker was showing me pics of her kids - her son in his football jersey, leaning on a ladder in someone's studio, and her daughter in a bikini splayed out on the hood of her new car. She said they were her kids' "senior portraits."

What ever happened to the seemingly requisite "head and torso" school shot for the yearbook?
