It was over Thanksgiving that she went hunting with family and friends, but when she returned home forgot her unloaded hunting rifle was cased and locked in the trunk of her car.
When she returned to school, and heard an announcement that a "contraband" dog would be making the rounds of the parking lot, she remembered the gun locked in her trunk.
In an interview today with WND, she reported what had happened.
She said she told officials right away about her forgetfulness, and asked whether she could move the car or take it home.
Instead, she was escorted from her class by Assistant Principal Scott Gaiser who told her she would be expelled from school.
I applaud her honesty, but this is one time that it would have been better to keep her mouth shut. Did she really think a drug dog was going to sniff out her deer rifle?
