School Zero Tolerance Goes Beyond Extreme April 26th, 2018

In Florida and New Jersey students have been punished for going to a gun range outside of school hours. In New Jersey this week, a school suspended two students who posted pictures of them going to gun range last weekend.

A New Jersey school district that allegedly suspended two high school students this week over a gun photo taken during a family visit to a private shooting range is facing community backlash and the threat of a lawsuit over district policies.

The photo of four rifles, magazines and a gun duffel bag was shared by one of the students on the social media app Snapchat with the caption "fun day at the range," according to Lacey Township resident Amanda Buron, a family friend of one of the students . . . .

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs letter cited the rule stating students could be suspended for up to a year if they are "reported to be in possession of a weapon of any type for any reason or purpose on or off school grounds.". . . .

Meanwhile in Florida at the Stoneman Douglas High School, Kyle Kashuv, who has been outspoken in support of people's right to self-defense, went shooting at a gun range with his father. See picture above .......

These reactions are almost laughable - except, bearing in mind the very unfunny trend displayed they are actually both threatening as well as very concerning. Recent weeks have seen not only serious threats to our rights as gun owners but also seemingly a further ratcheting up of school's zero tolerance policies. At the very least it should no business whatsoever what students choose to legally do outside of school, and that includes a simple visit to a range. Unfortunately the term 'school tyranny' comes to mind.
