A 16-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday after postings on the popular Web site MySpace.com allegedly showed him holding handguns, authorities said.
The teen was being held at a juvenile detention center facing three misdemeanor charges of juvenile possession of a handgun, said district attorney spokeswoman Pam Russell. He is due in court Feb. 27.
Police searched the boy's home after receiving a tip from Evergreen High School on Feb. 10, the same day he was suspended, officials said.
School spokesman Rick Kaufman said parents were calling with concerns and some kept their children home after photographs posted on the boy's profile on MySpace.com, a social networking Web site, began circulating through the community.
One photo allegedly showed him lying on a floor surrounded by nine rifles with the caption, "Angel o' death on wings o' lead."

Great link. I enjoyed his article and photos on shooting locks. Very interesting results.
daddy must have yelled at him at some point in time
mean, mean daddy, all his fault
On what grounds can the school suspend the student? If he didn't take guns to school and there was no direct threat, I don't understand how they can justify suspending him!
LOL! I love the helmet cam videos!
LOL. Well, Google reveals that there are at least three Evergreen High Schools, in Washington, Colorado, and Ohio. Probably more, but those are the first three :)
I'm thinking that people who care about their guns and privacy should not posting pics of them on the internet.
for later reading....
They'd have a stroke if they saw the "Sportsman's Messenger," which regularly features kids holding the guns they used to win shooting competitions.
That is the truth. These teen blog sites have much shocking content. A relative of mine had a Xanga site. All sorts of teens and preteens talking about drunkenness, drugs, teen sex, petty crime, etc., etc. Posting their real names, parents' names, addresses.
Ooohh...nice! I know what I'm doing the rest of the day (if my boss don't catch me).
I don't see how that could be a criminal violation assuming he wasn't threatening anyone.
Grandkid is getting a gun on that birthday and every one after that, as long as I'm alive.
