    I had a child to bring in a pistol-style bb gun today, unloaded. Found it first thing thanks to an older sibling. Very frightening. Sweet student. Said it belonged to an older brother. I'm just glad it was a bb gun....:(

    I'm confused. Is this a question, a vent, or something else?

    Growing up in Texas (a long time ago) many high school kids drove pickups to school. Most every truck had either a pump 12 gauge shotgun or a Winchester 30-30 rifle hanging on a gun rack right above the rear window. No one thought anything about it. I never heard of a single "school shooting." Those were good days.....:)

    Please know I'm NOT advocating trucks and guns for kids at school in today's society. Things have changed..... (common sense, discipline, respect, responsibility) ..... I wonder why? And I wonder who's to blame?...:confused:

    What were the consequences for the student? He would have had a suspension here.
