The two New Jersey high school students visited the gun range last year and posted a picture of them with a legally owned gun on a table on Snapchat. They were suspended by school administrators.
The two students are now suing the school district, Lacey Township, saying their rights were violated.
One of the students said “When I was pulled into the principal’s office for something I shared with my friends privately, outside of school, over a weekend, it felt like I had no place where I could truly speak freely”.
One of the attorneys representing them says "young people have the right to express themselves, and, with rare exceptions, they shouldn't face punishment by school administrators for it.”
