The Three R's: Reading, Writing, and Rifles

Is it fair that a California teen was expelled for shotguns found in his truck?


What's a rural boy to do? After spending the morning duck hunting, he's late for school, so he parks his truck near his school and leaves his unloaded guns and ammunition in the back.
This situation, especially in areas where hunting is common, happens frequently. This time it got Gary Tudesko, age 16, expelled from school, even though he parked his truck off campus.

At Willows High School, firearms are not allowed within 1,000 feet of a school zone. Tudesko was parked within that zone. Campus scent-sniffing dogs discovered the firearms and police were notified. Tudesko's mother, Susan Parisio, is upset that her son was expelled, citing that her son was only trying to get to school on time, and that he was "not even parked on school property." Willows High Principal Mort Geivett stands by his decision. "I'm erring on the safe side of protecting staff and kids," he told a local news station

Is this another example of zero tolerence out of control?

Hey get this- writing spelled with a W not an R, so the title, the r R’s, mmmmyeah, doesn’t work.

How was anyone suppose to know that the guns were unloaded?
Given the number of school shootings in recent years a vechile close to school with visible (gun racks in trucks are very visible)shot guns would cause a reaction.
Further, what if someone had broken into the truck and stolen the guns?
It was irresponsible.

I will recommend not to wait until you get enough amount of cash to buy different goods! You should just get the business loans or just collateral loan and feel yourself fine
