Re: "school appropriate" Long

I teach in a school very similiar - in fact over 1/2 of the pickups in the
parking lot have gun racks mounted in the rear window. I would say it
depends upon your administrator and the purpose of the rifle in the artwork.
I also have mixed feelings on paintball guns - my husband sells the guns, my
son owns one and they both love to play. It is a sport, yet allowing these
guns to be drawn is similiar in relation to the area. I don't know if
there's an easy answer on this one.
