In a little over 20 years - one local S.D. went from having its own shooting team and students in Vo-Tech carrying knives on their belts every day in school, to the now ever popular “zero tolerance” for anything deemed a “weapon” on school property.
I remember transferring shotguns from my car trunk to my buddy’s truck in the school parking lot and then a bunch of us hitting the surrounding fields to hunt until dusk.
Back in my high school days, shotguns and rifles were common in the parking lot. I mean as far as having them in a gun rack in the truck. They were kept in plain sight, and nobody freaked out.
Yes, those were violent times LoL /S
