It involved a first-grader at Neptune Beach who last month brought a gun magazine loaded with bullets to school. The official school letter to parents called it a “prohibited” item.
That was not enough for Celeste Dodrill, with two children attending that suburban elementary school. She began contacting school officials and her school board representative, Scott Shine, to find out what the district can or should do to remind parents to lock away their guns and their ammunition.
