A student brought a gun to my sons school today.
It was a BB gun.. but still! He is in elementary school. What the hell is this world coming to that a child that age could even have access to something like that?
Here is a portion of the letter from the school... "A student brought a BB gun to school today. The BB gun was never used in a threatening manner and the students who heard about it immediately reported it."
Great that they handled the problem. But.. I'm sorry that doesn't scare me any less. We all know the possibility of something like this happening. But it never seems like it could happen in your childs school. I may be overreacting since it was in fact a BB gun. And it wasn't used in a "threatening manner". But it just scares me even more for my children. I just thank god that nothing serious happened. And that it wasn't a different type of gun. I guess this was just a reminder of how scary the world really is.
Has anything scary like this happened in your childs school or in your area? My son didn't seem to have any idea about it. I feel like I should still talk to him about the situation I'm just not sure what to even say!
