A Maine high school has rejected a student's submitted yearbook photo because it shows him holding a shotgun, the AP reports. Bonny Eagle High School senior Wade Gelinas says he wanted his picture to feature hunting because it is a family tradition. Principal Lori Napolitano tells WCSH-TV the school in Standish does not allow weapons in yearbook photos because administrators don't want to be forced to decide which images are promoting violence and which aren't.
