After the shooting, was the Trench Coat Mafia still a thing? Did students wear trench coats around school, or did that become taboo and no one did? I wonder if mafia members were avoided due to guilt by association. Any thoughts?

I'm sure someone else on the forum can give a better answer as far as the people in the TCM but I think that most schools in the US including Columbine banned trench coats after 4/20/99. There's an image somewhere on the forum showing this part of the Columbine dress code, though I'm not sure how to find it.

Trench coats are banned at Columbine High School. I found that powerpoint on the school's website.

I don't think the TCM was ever a thing outside of Chris Morris and a few others and it was more of a joke than anything.

TCM died before the shooting, only E+D wore tc's towards the end. The others stopped doing it in late 1998. The group did still hang out but they didn't wear the coats anymore. I don't think anyone would dare to wear on there, or any other American school as it would be tied to this. There is still gothic/alternative kids who wear dark clothing and boys with long hair though atCHS.

I was in High School from 2003-2007 and we weren't allowed to wear trench coats or any kind of long coat for that matter.

We also weren't allowed to wear hats but I'm not sure if that was Columbine related...

It's crazy to think how Columbine 1000+ miles away could change school rules nationwide

Wow I didn't know trench coats were banned in some schools. Kinda stupid tbh. The coats don't cause any shootings...

I don't think it's so much about thinking trench coats caused the shootings than it is about the ability to hide weapons under them (which is what E&D did). At least in the state I grew up in (Deep South US), pretty much all public schools adopted a strict uniform dress code that explicitly prohibited any kind of clothing they thought you could hide weapons under. No baggy/saggy pants, must wear a belt (or have teachers zip tie your pants up), any jackets had to be kept unzipped/unbuttoned any time you were in the school (so no pull-over hoodies or anything like that). The environment in the US school system after Columbine was basically that kids could not be trusted. I heard some schools even installed metal detectors & searched kids bags upon entering.

Oh and we also were not allowed to have cell phones at school AT ALL. You would get suspended or possibly even expelled if caught with one because they were afraid kids would somehow use them to detonate bombs.
