School Board: High School Seniors Can Pose With Favorite Gun in Senior Potraits

School Board: High School Seniors Can Pose With Favorite Gun in Senior Potraits

On October 20 Nebraska’s Broken Bow School Board voted to allow seniors to pose with their favorite guns in senior portraits.

The move came after a student during last school year requested to have a gun in his senior portrait but was denied. 

According to 1101 Now, school board president Ken Myers said: “We have a 1 Box Shooting Club, a great trap range and sporting clays range. A lot of youth are interested in that so that brings up firearms, I guess, a little bit more to the forefront along with… hunting.”

Broken Bow superintendent Mark Sievering added:

We decided we didn’t want to have any offensive depictions of firearms but, as we talked about it and the board talked about it, we could tell there was a sense that to allow a student to have a firearm, as long as it was done in a tasteful manner in terms of a hunting or sporting type picture that that might be okay.

Students will not be allowed to “[brandish]” their gun or point it “at the camera.” If they do so, their photos “will not be used.”
