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.
