"...a Jan. 18 incident in which a student brought a gun to Northridge High School...".

"The student who brought a gun to school in January had moved into the district during the school year".

At the time of the northridge incident last month, it was said that the kid was reported to have brought a gun to school by other students, and that he was expelled, and no news since UNTIL now.  What kind of gun did this student bring to school?  Bushmaster .223?  Some sort of 9mm?  People should know, should they not?  In the wake of the tragedies plaguing our nation, should the community not be told or made aware?  Hillary testifying "What difference does it make" may make for good evening news theater, but "What difference does it make" will not work with parents holding their breaths from the first ride to school on the bus on monday mornings until the last ride home friday evenings, so should the community not be told ALL of the details of such an incident?  If not report them, why not report them?  What are the details?  What kind of gun?  How many?  How many clips and how many rounds did they hold? Who else was involved?  Was the gun registered to the student?  Did he have plans of taking how many people out?  Was the student bullied by other students or liberal teachers?  Did the student wear a trench coat?  Criminal charges filed or pending against the student?  The students age below 26 years of age?  Details.  The community needs to know details so they can react appropriately.

Is there a shooter terrorizing your building? 
Well, don’t panic. The Department of Homeland Security wants you to know that if you’re confronted with a madman indiscriminately murdering innocents, there are many options you can turn to. 

You can cower and hope the gunman passes you by, you can run away or, if you’re feeling particularly feisty, you can defend yourself with a pair of scissors!

The most evil and dangerous false projection by the left in this crusade against our Second Amendment protections is that they are doing it to save lives. 
They crow-beat concerned parents by saying, “Do it for the children!” 
They posture as if their asinine ideas and proposed policies will protect lives when they do the exact opposite.

are we really interested in school safety?  Then schools and the administrators should stop putting them into the cross hairs of the ne'er-do-wells by labelling them "gun free zones".  Taxpayers should cough up the 'ready' by hiring armed guards and/or better yet, training personnel in the school to handle firearms to defend those kids.  Many states and cities are moving to that now. 

recall the statistic that there were more people killed in the last several years by HAMMERS than guns.  FBI report....home page.

Recall too, that since the 1970s less and less money has been spent on addressing mental illness than on all the other societal sicknesses.  That's disgusting.

We need to get out of the box of the "normal" thinking processes.

That kid brought an imaginary gun to school and he should be JAILED!!! Even worse, a kid brought a PICTURE of a gun to school and an AMERICAN FLAG. Clearly, we need to keep schools on lockdown 24/7. We should also start cutting off forefingers and thumbs, because kids have been making "guns" with their hands.

This hysterical hype is getting stupid.

I am not saying the time I grew up in was better or worse than today but it suited me just fine. We had a smoking lounge downstairs in the old gun range of my high school. Yes....my HS had a shooting range in the basement. We didn't have pregnant teens roaming the halls or nurseries to house the results of their unabated procreating.

Boys had knives on them as that was normal. Even though we engaged in fisticuffs we never thought of stabbing or shooting our opponent. We may not have liked all of our teachers but we respected their dominion over us. You never wanted to get into trouble from a teacher because you would be in worse trouble when you got home.


Back then we didn't medicate the hell out of our kids or blame their shortcomings on outside forces. If I recall correctly a healthy dose of fear  was about all any of us needed to to overcome being hyperactive. That is what we called ADHD back then and the threat of a rap on the knuckles or a belt on the *** cured us immediately.

We shouldn't overreact to the soap bubble gun or the drawing  of a gun, but this was a real gun...not a toy...so is that overreacting?

I heard lots of "alleged" and "supposedly", but never 100%.  If I did miss that I want to see it please.  I heard another student said he saw a gun, but that doesnt exactly prove anything.  Im not saying it isnt true, I just want to see the story because I missed it.

"You broke into my house and stole all my stuff last night. You then drove away in a Rolls Royce Silver Spirit."


So, by your logic, just because I said that happened, it suddenly became true? No? Then why would that same logic apply to an alleged gun?

In the wake of events, school shootings and stuff nationwide, one would have to wonder how or why it is that a student is expelled for bringing a gun to school, yet the details seem to be kept, buried under wraps.  One could rightfully begin to question the possibility of a cover up.  But why would there be a cover up that may involve this very newspaper?  Kid reportedly brings a gun to school, gets expelled, move on, nothing more to see here?  That alone triggers alarms and sends up red flags, does it not?  Came from another school?  Hmm?  Documented student at this new school, or undocumented student at this new school?  No or very little detail about a student bringing a gun to school weeks ago?  Does that not seem odd at a time when a seven year-old boy gets suspended from his elementary school for creating make believe hand grenades and tossing them into a make believe box at make believe bad guys to make believe save the world on a school playground during recess?  It happened...

www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/feb/5/7-year-old-boy-suspended-throwing-imaginary-grenad/

A seven year-old boy gets suspended for throwing invisible grenades at invisible people in an invisible box, and scared parents here in elkhart county can now know more about him than some student that reportedly brings a gun, and who knows what else, into school, if reported correctly?  Does that make sense?  No details weeks later?  Something just does not seem...

Welcome to the new and improved America.  Yes, changes and hope.  Changes in ways that no one imagined, except maybe a seven year-old kid and a professional community agitator that now lives in...
