[S]chool administrators at Cumberland High School in Rhode Island are trying to control what students are doing off campus and on their own time. It involves a game being played by students across the nation. The game is called ‘Senior Assassin’ where students hunt and shoot each other with squirt guns. The last one dry is the winner.
Kids have been playing with squirt guns for decades, but now because it involves something that involves a type of gun and uses the word assassin, school officials want to ban their students from participating.
Principal Alan J. Tenreiro told the local newspaper”:
“It is something that the administration does not condone or endorse in any way.”
“Given the safety issues and the amount of violence taking place at schools across the country, particularly with guns, Cumberland High School takes the position that the game is inappropriate and we strongly discourage participation.”
