When I grew up there kids had 22 rifles and shotguns in their cars at school.
In rural Alaska, guns have always been kept behind the office door; teachers have the key to office. Reason? Come every May, the grizzly bear stroll up and down the road, walk through the village like they own the place, and are hungry as can be. You should see how a 2 year old bear looks kids over on the playground. Everybody thinks it’s quite prudent to have a 338 win mag behind the office door, and anybody who said different would be run outta town on a rail or worse, no joke, that’s reality.
It’s only 4 schools, but it’s a start.
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.
