Santa Clara's Mission College went into lockdown for about 45 minutes Monday afternoon after a cardboard cutout of a gun was mistaken for the real thing, a school spokesman said.
As part of a sociology of criminology class project where students were to dress up as criminals, one student wore a ski mask and carried a cardboard cutout of a gun, school spokesman Peter Anning said.
The student was taking pictures before the class began when another student panicked and called Santa Clara police at 2:47 p.m. to report a person with a gun, he said.
Mission College went into lockdown at 2:53 p.m.

Sorry, I think this was a setup.
Beware of the Concealed Corrugated Colt.
At least he didn’t have a pop tart.
Several security guards quickly unholstered their finger guns in response!
Stupid is as stupid does!
If I were the student (I was a brat), tomorrow, I would make a cardboard cutout of a pressure cooker or maybe bring in a pressure cooker full of hot wings to share at lunch.
Ah, I recall back in the day, many moons ago when a group of us decided to head over to another dorm complex dressed up as gangsters.
We bought some toy water guns back in those days they were still black and dressed in some long black coats and hats. We ran around the other dorm squirting people with water. No one had a major problem with or even called the campus police. And certainly, no one shut the place down and sent in the SWAT team ..
I can only imagine what would have happened these days ..
Idiotic and self serving attention whore ...
Surely the student has the right to bear cardboard!
Only if congress approves card check...
Obviously a white bread school. In my kids’ school, they would have known how to conceal such a ‘weapon’.
Ban cardboard and Day-Glo paint.
She forgot to mention inane.

These are Buckwheat’s Rambos who will go door-to-door confiscating weapons in every house, according to some FReepers. They are 10-feet tall, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and fire cop-killer bullets out their arses and hit the target at 1,000 yards.
You could paint a road cone green with a red star and tell people it was a nuclear warhead and you could shut down an entire city. People are that stupid.
