    They did at my school too...they just looked like rubber band guns.

    But some schools apparently use ones with finished wood, metal parts and a trigger guard. That's not super smart to begin with, giving them something for school that they can't freely carry around campus.

    I remember a few years ago they expelled a very young kid for just pointing his finger at someone like it was a gun and pulling the trigger. I guess the kids can't play cowboys and Indians anymore. Another kid was expelled for giving a little girl a peck on the cheek.

    OOPS I guess cowboys and Indians is not politically correct.

    I think it's time for a lot of civil disobedience. I think an entire ROTC team should show up at school with their practice rifles, and get expelled. A lot of students with good grades and exemplary atendance getting kicked out of school for participating in an ROTC program. And that would be just a start.

    It's time to start using this kind of action to overload these idiotic bureaucracies and get them thrown out. PC is a main reason why this country has gone to hell.
    +1.. fighting stupidity and ignorance is long overdue!
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

  5. if cops can carry in public (at schools) a student in ROTC SHOULD be allowed to carry a fake gun.
    Next they will make cops keep their guns a the station and go get them if need
    IF THEY COME TO GET YOUR GUNS,
    LET THEM HAVE THE BULLETS FIRST!

    years ago we took nra hunters training at the high school ,part of the class training was bringing in our 22 rifles for firearm training then going out behind the school and doing some shooting one girl brought in her fathers 30-30,they used to also have a 22 caliber shooting team at the school and indoor range in the basement.they added cross country sking into it later.now you dont even want to mention the word gun in a school.

    It is too bad that there isnt a need to prove intent anymore.

    I do not feel that she had the intent to scare any chilluns

    Yeah, my school had an armory (with over 400 M-1's, a few M-14's, an M-79 grenade launcher and an M-60), rifle range (real, bolt-action .22's stored in the armory), a rifle team and drill team with real rifles also. I know they all could be cocked and have magazines or belts inserted but could have had their firing pins shortened I suppose.

    Does anyone even know of a HS level ROTC unit which has these thing anymore? Do these still exist?

    How did we avoid all the campus massacres back in those days?
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    When I went to high school (many, many years ago) the school had an NRA sponsored rifle club. Now you get in all kinds of trouble for a drill weapon that can't fire and is no danger. It's simply baffling that this could occur.

    Sad part is that it's highly likely to get a lot worse......
