NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. A southern Nevada high school and a nearby elementary school were locked down Monday while police searched for a teenager who they said brought a gun to campus, authorities said.
Two schools? Uh-oh.
Underage kid banned from school property for ?? reasons, shows up with semi-auto handgun. .25 cal handgun found...LVPD now looking for him.
Arm the teachers. In an ideal world, we would be better served if the Media would report malfunctioning teens being blown away by armed teachers and admin personnel instead of 5 hours of cops searching area or sitting on their asses while people getting shot.
a .25 caliber hand gun was found but it is believed he has a rifle as well
also a shooting in Landcaster Pa. One student is shot
Dang! Now there's a shooting in Pa.
Arming the teachers is not a good idea IMO.
They would have to go through training in one reason and it would cost money times 4.
Parents need to be more responsible for their kids.
Teachers need to teach and have no business in the law enforcement of the schools.
Most schools have a Police resource Officer assigned to schools now a days.
Surely you jest, or are you speaking of the criminal element only? I bring a gun to school everyday.
Ok, let me amend that: Arm the (willing) teachers/admin. They should have armed personnel on premisis CAPABLE and WILLING to engage in close combat with an armed opponent trying to harm/kill innocents.
FNC is reporting a possible hostage situation at the Pennsylvania school shooting.
One injury reported.

I agree with arming the willing. A short course in selfdefense with a weapon isn't that expensive. Training for a CWP costs $100.
Former student tried to enter school. Was turned in by other students who knew he was no longer a student at the school.
Gun found off campus near/in housing construction area.
No injuries or shots fired, apparently.
This kind of crime happens because we permit it to happen through our actions. Parents and school administrators need to be in charge of schools...not some kids who think they can get their way with a bit of crying, whining, kicking, and complaining. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the innocent victims.

Is there another thread on this PA shooting?
Good grief pretty sad that the school shootings are running on one thread now a days.
If this keeps up we will have an on going Live School Lock down Daily thread.
Let's pray things ease up.
OMG the PA shooting is at an Amish school.
A one room school.
