Why is this happening? We have had several events in my area with this. Have our students gone totally loony? This is just further crap for the anti-gun people to jump on and insist we no longer are capable of owning firearms.
High School Student Charged with Bringing Gun to School

+1 for what Mike said....though I expect he was joking. But, decades ago, in some rough schools, kids would bring guns to school.
Not most kids, of course, but way before kids were planning mass school shootings, some schools were rough places. Few brought guns...everyone else brought knives, or the girls brought mace.
I had the misfortune of going to one of those schools for a couple of years. We actually had armed policeman in the halls, and on our buses.....AND THEY WERE NEEDED.
The first day of gym class, in the locker room, I had a snubbie pulled on me. The kid made no attempt to shoot me. He was just putting on a show for his friends who thought it was a hoot.
I carried a buck folding hunter every day after that. Fortunately, that was the last gun I had pulled on me in school.
Zero tolerance for Nerf guns in the front yard before school. I wonder what comes from this?
I think the kid who pulled the snubbie on StormRhydr needed a blanket party in his honor ASAP back then. When I was in Boot Camp a 'blanket party' was given to a guy who needed extra motivation. Similar to what happened to the slow guy in Full Metal Jacket. The slow guy tried harder after that and actually graduated.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

Bullying. Having a gun at school is sometimes a defense against bullying by bigger kids. Big problem.
FTA: "They called him into the office. Police say they found the gun, a clip and 10 9mm ammunition rounds."
What 9mm handgun uses a clip?
