It wasn't that many years ago when kids came to high school with gun racks mounted on the rear windows of pickup trucks and a rifle or shotgun cradled in plain view.
The sad truth is we live in a post-Columbine age where, right or wrong, every gun is a threat to the safety of the entire student population, as well as the faculty. But I had to scratch my head on this one and ponder, 'Is this going a tad too far?'
A 10th-grade girl was charged on suspicion of possession of a handgun at Hillsboro High School after security conducted a parking lot search. They found an unloaded, unholstered .22 pistol beneath the seat of her car. How they found a pistol concealed beneath the seat of a vehicle is unknown, but Pith
has a call into Principal Rod Manuel, so we'll keep you posted.
Apparently the car is normally driven by her father, and the gun belongs to him. Still, the girl is being charged. What do you think, PITW
readers? Justified prevention or excessive punishment?
