North Dakota father tries to get principal fired after a picture of his son holding his metal penis extender is rejected for the yearbook.

Courtesy of Star Tribune:

The father of a gun-toting North Dakota student is calling for a school principal to be fired after the student’s senior photo was banned from publication in the yearbook. 

In the photo, Josh Renville, a senior at Fargo North High school, is pictured holding “his favorite” rifle and wearing a shirt emblazoned with the stars and stripes. 

His father, Charlie, who called for the firing in a Tuesday post on Facebook, wrote that the image was rejected because “in their words, it promotes violence and breaks federal and state law.” He goes on to question how it is any different than pictures of soldiers during war or images of students who participate in trap or skeet teams. 

The Renvilles submitted the photo for the school yearbook, but it was rejected by the high school.

You know pictures of the military are not typically submitted for a student's yearbook photo, and skeet shooters are actually participating in a school sponsored activity.

The photo of this kid looks like exactly the kind of thing that would cause the school to lockdown and for the SWAT team to be called out.

Nobody is attacking this kid's second amendment right to own a gun. They just don't want to traumatize the rest of the school by including his douchebag picture in the yearbook.

And by the way after seeing this picture I think the school should start patting this kid down before letting his Timothy McVeigh looking ass back in the building.

But that's just me.

    I guess the father would approve of a photo then of two gay seniors kissing? Holding hands? How about a mixed race couple? Or a non-Christian holding up their religious book in the senior photo? Be careful what you wish for, Dad. Rules are in place to protect all of us.

    I hate guns, but if the kid chose his gun as his senior photo prop, I think the photo should have gone in the yearbook, along with the photos of kids with their guitars, dogs, horses, cars. Now a days, senior photos are taken by professional photographers in studios, so he didn't bring his gun to school. Besides, an ROTC senior would probably be allowed to sport a uniform and gun in their photo.

    1. I didn't know a student's yearbook photo was allowed to have a prop. Back in my day ("Yeah, tell us, you old fart") it was just a headshot or you had a limited choice of backgrounds and maybe the headshot of you over the back of the chair. Ah, the good old days. I would have loved to have had my headshot with me holding my saxophone, but if I had to give that up to not allow other people to hold all kinds of other things, some of which I would consider pretty crazy, I would have no problem with it. Oh wait, I didn't. In any case, there's zero way you can get a principal fired for upholding school policy. What the father should do is spend his time going to school board meetings, but I bet he never has.

      Marvin, I wrote the above comment. For a few decades, kids have been allowed to take 'meaningful' props to the sitting. They can stand, sit, pose ala Burt Reynolds, etc. I think schools should seriously consider going back to cap and gown shots or head shots, sans props. Too many hot button props out there, just asking for trouble.

      Back in the 1960's graduation photos were taken as head shots with no background. What is done today is total nonsense. If parents want to take their son or daughter a professional photographer and pay exorbitantly for a fancy photo to put on the mantel.

    5. Most yearbooks photos have rules attached to them.

      Such as no sleeveless tank tops, no strapless dresses, that sort of thing. There is usually some sort of dress code for senior photos.

      I know many require you to go to a studio and dress alike so the senior photos are uniform. The males all in white shirt, tie and jacket supplied by the photographer. The girls all wearing a similar drape for the top.

      Everyone got the exact same background.

      But whatever.

      A gun in a senior yearbook photo is not appropriate.

      Were their guns in my yearbook? Sure. The ROTC rifle team posed with their white wooden drill rifles. They did not pose with the real thing they used for target practice.

      Good luck to this dad. The principal is not getting fired and his ammosexual kid is not getting his penis extender in the yearbook.

    The school could print the picture with the gun photoshopped out. The parents would still bitch about it but they couldn't say the picture wasn't used...

    Here's the thing, if guns aren't allowed on school campuses then photos of students with guns shouldn't be allowed in school yearbooks.

  14. Okay Dad, I'll back you about the right to print the picture the minute you show us Junior's enlistment papers......ROTC and Skeet/Trap teams pictures are usually shown IN ADDITION to their year book photo, usually in the section of the yearbook set aside for sports teams, drama club, etc.

    As for the kid? I usually don't like to pick on looks because you can't do much about DNA. That being said - Kid you can't pull of the dreaded steely-eyed stare (ala Eastwood) with pouty lips unless you're Lara Croft.

  16. IF he was holding a trap or skeet rifle, I could see a glimmer of the point. But he is holding a gun whose only purpose is killing humans in large numbers very quickly. Yes, he has a 2nd amendment right and schools have dress codes and other behavior standards.

  24. Schools have all sorts of rules, some liberal, some restrictive. Typically caps are not permitted in yearbook photos. Depictions of alcohol or shirts and caps promoting alcohol, tobacco, and profanity are also forbidden.

    Sure we can argue a kid's yearbook photo is protected speech, but why not a girl in a bikini, a kid wearing clown makeup, a boy dressed as a girl, or a kid wrapped in the Confederate flag? A case can be made for almost anything,

    The school is right on this, and it shouldn't be afraid to take a stand.

      What "legal age to own a gun" are you talking about? I'm pretty sure a teenager is allowed to hold a long rifle in every state. Arresting him would just give these people legitimacy and publicity. Ignore them and they will quiet down.

      And yes - senior pictures have gotten out of hand. The money involved, settings, multiple clothing changes etc is ridiculous. If the money spent on these things were donated to a local food bank a lot of people would eat.
