Teenagers suspended over homecoming photo with airsoft guns

Two high school juniors from Taunton, Massachusetts, decided to include their hobby in their homecoming photos, a decision which could lead to their expulsion.

Since the photos were taken at home, they didn't think it would be a problem to pose with their airsoft guns, but when the photos were shared online, the students were suspended for ten days. The school principal has involved the police and is considering whether to expel the students entirely.
