20 years ago there was a gun backstage my senior year of high school we kept it it there, locked in a metal toolbox I think it was locked I remember the meeting my principal, my friend and I, around a table in the back office there may have been a few other people there my memory is hazy we explained how we needed the gun it was the only way it had to be believable concessions were made our principal understood our show must go on so the gun was disabled we may have gone through a few different kinds of guns and suppliers before the gun and then the starter pistol were allowed to be stored so our characters could use the real deal and our show could be the real deal can you imagine today? a student asking their principal for permission to keep a weapon backstage?
