A Utah sixth-grader, who told classmates he was encouraged by his parents to bring a gun to school after the Connecticut school shooting, was apprehended by teachers after he was found with an unloaded .22-caliber handgun, Fox13Now.com reported.

The unidentified student, described in the report as an 11-year-old boy, reportedly pulled the gun from his backpack during recess Monday at West Kearns Elementary School, which is in a suburb of Salt Lake City.

“Lockdowns” originated in prisons. Their objective was not the safety of prisoners, but convenience of the guards. How badly are the sheep misled, when criticism comes for not putting the school in lockdown, a condition in which a shooter, if there was a shooter, would have captive victims?

I agree there was no need for a “Lockdown” in this case. Normally a “Lockdown” in a school is called to keep people out. (ie. shooter/other credible threat in the area)

The kids parents in this case were STUPID.

Maybe the lad took it a bit too literally when Mom and Dad agreed out loud upon hearing about Sandy Hook, that “What’s this world coming to? Junior ought to take the shotgun with him to school so he’ll be safe.” “Yeah, honey, remember how I used to keep my shotgun in my locker when I was young?”

And so, Junior did....

I call BS!

If some moron thought the answer was sending his kid to school with a gun, he would have been stupid enough to load it.

This sounds like some lib trying to help out with the gun control hysteria.

Deep in the heart of Texas, the lad would have been asked to bring his pop and learn how to shoot it!

My dad and his friends all kept their shotguns in their lockers after the morning duck hunt. One morning they were late and marched into the principals office first. He chatted for awhile about what birds they got.. mostly coots that day.. then were sent on their way witout tardy slips. This was in Minnesota!

Students doing what the teachers are not allowed to do!

If only the Feds and States would study what Israel did when Muzzies attacked and killed Israel children at school back in the 1970s.

“If only the Feds and States would study what Israel did when Muzzies attacked and killed Israel children at school back in the 1970s.”

If they so did, they couldn’t start another Agency, hire more Fast Food Industry rejects, and produce more dependent Democratic voters.

For example, what if the USA had followed the Isreal model on the issue of airline safety. No TSA, that’s what!

What would all the perverts and thieves do without a badge and authortitay - eh?

Long before 9/11, El Al had already hijack proofed its airline cockpits. That ALONE would have made the 9/11 stunt impossible.
