North Dakota School's Rejection of Teen's Rifle Yearbook Photo Stokes Controversy

The teen said he built the rifle himself.

— -- A yearbook photo is stirring up controversy in Fargo, North Dakota, after a local school rejected a student's picture because it showed a gun.

Josh Renville, 18, a senior at Fargo North High School, decided to feature his favorite rifle in his last yearbook photo. Renville said he built the rifle himself, and said he uses it for target practice and hunting.

After he submitted the photo, which shows the teen clad in an American flag shirt and carrying the firearm next to a flag, the school deemed the photo "inappropriate."
