Two students suspended for having “fun day at the range“

Two students at Lacey Township High-school, NJ were suspended for posting a picture of themselves shooting guns at a private gun range with the caption “fun day at the range“. The school's zero tolerance policy says that students cannot be in possession of weapons at any time, whether on or off campus.


I guess there are not any hunters, archers, or SASS shooters attending this High School!!!!

This is what happens when we expect someone else to stand for our rights while we sit idly by saying and doing nothing.  This is a prime example of why we need to fight for our rights, inform the uninformed, educate the uneducated, contact our legislatures ...

this is just too stupid to fathom...... the schools zero tolerance is fine at school but should not have this much reach


That is a unconstitutional and unenforceable illegal school policy. Tax $$$ will now be wasted by that school district, say'n they did no wrong. :rolleyes:

Possession of Weapons
In accordance with the Safe Schools Initiative, the Zero Tolerance For Guns Act, P.L. 1995 and


its companion C.128 and the Lacey Township School Board’s Zero Tolerance Policy, any
student who is reported to be in possession of a weapon of any type for any reason or purpose
whether on or off school grounds during the academic year shall be disciplined as follows:

A. Long term suspension.
B. Evaluation by the high school Child Study Team.
C. Recommendation by the administration to the Board
of Education for suspension for at least 1 year.



My thinking is that once they step off of school grounds, other than for a school event, the school has no say on what they do excepting the making of treats against school employees, or threats of damage to school facilities.

By that policy the school should be held responsible for every student while off campus. So, if something happen to a student, such as injury or death, the school was responsible for their safety and thus parents could sue the school for failure to provide safety for that child.

and, by extension, for any damage done by the student.
