    I'll let the story do the talking.

    Are you okay with this, Deane?

    And if one of these seniors later were to use a gun in an assault, armed robbery, or (god forbid) a school shooting, would you let the "guns in senior photos" policy continue?

    It seems that these policies are more politically reactive (either for or against) than thoughtfully considered.

    What's the problem? I don't get it.

    At one time, Franklin High School had a sport shooting club. One of my friends, a 1974 alumnus, showed me an old yearbook where he appeared in the club photo. I think that the members might have been posing with their rifles.

    I think this will come back to bite them, but whatever.

    I say no to guns in school pics. Guns and schools are a bad mix.

    Broken Bow is in far northwest Nebraska made up of mostly ranchers and a few small town people. It would be the trading hub for a wide area.

    Many of the ranch kids there are going to grow up with guns. These are not for self protection, but rather hunting, livestock protection, etc. It's a way of life, unlike what you see in the city.

    I sort of see a high school graduation photo taken with a gun being a bit silly, but that's just my viewpoint.

    When I saw the story, I immediately thought of the anti-gun folks on this forum and what they would be thinking when they read it. Graduation pic with a gun, where will we go next?

    Graduation pic with a machette? Horse? Clown? Satan? Where will it end?
