In HS 1963-1967, we had a Rifle Team at the school, and would bring our 22s (my 1958 Mossberg 144LS; still have it), ammo, mags, cleaning kits, box of cotton for earplugs etc to school, and keep them in our hall lockers, under combination lock. The range was below the football field. Other students who had pick-ups, kept shotguns, deer rifles etc in the back window rack. No biggie, back then. I don’t ever remember a school shooting in the 60s, except for Whitman in Texas Tower massacre.
Yeah well that Tx A&M guy was a one off nut.
When I moved to Tx everybody had a rifle and a shotgun in the cab of the truck and bass boat on a trailer.
All that stuff is legal but frowned upon now.
Where has my country gone?
