A Utah sixth-grader caught with a gun at school told administrators he brought the weapon to defend himself in case of an attack similar to the mass shooting last week in Newtown, Conn., school officials said Tuesday.
The 11-year-old was being held in juvenile detention on suspicion of possessing a dangerous weapon and aggravated assault after other students at the suburban Salt Lake City elementary school told police he threatened them with the handgun.

Now how the hell did an 11 year old get a gun to take to school?  And was that just a story to get out of punishment?

Ohh LOVELY.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Didn't his mom put it in his backpack and let him know it was there? Not sure, but I thought I heard that.

Well, that would be smart!  If you are that worried about your child, keep him at home, don't endanger not only him but other kids.  What if a cop saw him brandishing the gun around?  If that is true, the mom needs to have a good slap up side the head.

lol I'd be scared too if I was 11 and got caught taking a gun to school.   It would be a "fear-based" defense, totally.   lolz

6th grader brings gun to school, says he brought it to defend himself from Newtown-type attack

(AP) -

Authorities say a Utah sixth-grader caught with a gun at school told administrators he brought the weapon to defend himself in case of an attack similar to the mass shooting last week in Newtown, Conn.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that two classmates at West Kearns Elementary School reported the gun to a teacher toward the end of the school day Monday....

Is this how easy it is to get a gun in America?  I remember reading an article in the newspaper the other day about shops in Australia that were being fined large sums of money for selling replica guns (ie, no actual ammo).
