Pereira and Velez are students at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School. The photo was taken by Velez's father in their living room and then posted to Facebook.
Pereira said, "We took [the pictures] with the Airsoft guns because that's our hobby, and we wanted to include them." But school officials argue that the photo caused "a disruption at the school."
School district superintendent Dr. Richard Gross said he didn't have a problem with the Airsoft guns, and he understands free speech. However, he "takes issue with the caption below the photo that reads 'Homecoming 2014.'" He added: "When you tie that to a school event, that's something to be concerned about."

I don't care if they were real guns. This is bull. There was no threat. Nothing in that picture is illegal. Nothing they said was threatening.
Common sense sure isn't common anymore.
