Up in the Lakes Region of NH- there was quite a scuffle so to speak- over a student being featured in his High School Year book with his gun- which was un loaded and I don't have a better word so I'll say- not loaded- (the gun area where you put the bullets was opened and hanging over his sholder-
Now I started asking this same question up here because we have a student who received his black and had his senior picture in his gi in a stance-
to me if you were going to raise a stink about the gun- you needed to raise a stink about the uniform- because a martial artist doesn't even NEED a weapon to be lethal- you know?
Please note I think both are silly- the student should have been allowed to have his gun obviously un loaded - and there shouldn't be a problem with the uniform/black belt either-
I thought the two didn't work together either-
How can you allow a black belt to have his senior picture in the year book- "as a black belt" and NOT allow someone who is part of special groups (not associated with the school) to show that interest-
Anyone ever come up with anything?
