Big Lake High reverses trapshooting photo rejection

A yearbook photo of the Big Lake High School trapshooting team was rejected by school officials for having guns in the picture. Administrators have reversed their decision.

WCCO-TV:

A number of parents, coaches and players said the guns shouldn’t be considered weapon, but rather as pieces of equipment, just like a baseball player holding a bat in the team picture.

The school amended their yearbook photo policy with the following language:

Exception given to our school-sponsored trap-shooting team which will be allowed to have team pictures in the yearbook, team poster displayed in the school, and any approved photos taken by yearbook staff. These photos would include their firearms.
