Teen Brings Gun, 50 Rounds of Ammo to School

December 21, 2012  | 

Fresno County (Calif.) Sherrif's deputies arrested a 14-year-old Central High School student on Thursday for bringing a .25-caliber semi-automatic handgun and 50 rounds of ammunition to campus.

Authorities say the ninth grader was carrying the weapon and bullets in his pockets, reports the Fresno Bee. The arrest occurred about a day after rumors spread on Facebook that someone planned to "shoot the place up." The news source says there is no evidence linking the student and the rumor.

Earlier this week, other threats were made via text message against another high school in the area.

What the hell is wrong with kids these days? With people in general? This is just more ammunition (no pun intended) for the gun ban nuts. I don't believe banning guns is the answer. I believe disciplining your children, teaching them right from wrong, no leniency for criminals, and better psychological treatment is what will help. Don't just give the sick ones pills for ADHD and send them on their way anymore, for Christ's sake. Take a look at the real problems plaguing us, don't blame the instruments used.

And if I was the parent of a kid who pulled a stunt like this, if he didn't go to juvey, his ass would be on the first bus to military school... There is just no excuse.
