    I spent the majority of my middle school years making improvised weapons out of school supplies. Not because I wanted to use them on anyone or I thought I needed to protect myself but because I thought it was cool to makes stuff. Slap on the wrist, dont do it again, everyone back to your seats. Why is this even in the news?

    I can remember being allowed to keep archery gear in our cars to go hunting with. I remember I mistakenly had my boy scout knife with me from a meeting and I was told to keep it in my pocket and not draw it. Guns were still a no - no but even still seniors had them in their trucks during hunting season and no one paid them much mind.

    I graduated in 2007 damn things have been going down hill.

    There is an old shooting range in a school basement near where live they must have had a shooting team at one time.

    I think they should bring back pointed scissors and metal rulers as it's inhumane to stab someone with a blunt set of shears or hit them with a plastic ruler that may break and leave shrapnel in the wound.

    'Member sticking a metal thumbtack into a pencil eraser, rubbing it hard on a desktop or pantsleg, then touching it to someones neck after it got good and hot?
    How about the 'stinger' made from a bent hairpin?

    Ah... the good old days when issues were resolved in the parking lot or playground, not by the cop on school patrol....

    Can't agree more. This country is failing due to stupidity such as this. What a waste.

    These were big when I was in middle school also.
    Paper wads, paper clips, pen caps, chunks of staples.
    We discovered that you could crush a piece of chalk under the leg of your chair and roll the powder up inside of the paper wad. This created an improvised "tracer" round that left a cloud in the air, and exploded on impact to cover your opponent in dust.

    We had it down to a science...we knew which types of rubber bands worked best with which types of "ammo". (The thin blue rubber bands worked best for long-range loads, while the thicker tan rubber bands packed more punch and were accurate at shorter distances.)

    Got hit near the eye with one of these in 5th Grade.
    Got home from school, my dad saw the slight swelling and asked me what happened.
    I told him about the projectile.
    His response?

    "You should have seen it coming and BLOCKED IT."



    That was always my parents' approach to these types of situations.
    My dad knew that "kids will be kids"...and instead of marching in and demanding the teacher's resignation, or threatening to sue the parents of the student who got me with the projectile...he taught me how to block it.

    The suspects should be prosecuted as adults and given the harshest sentenses- prison without the posibility of parole. I do not know why we are so lenient with young kids. All they are going to do is grow up and be criminals with guns and all. Send them to prison and forget about them. On the flip side, I did much worse things in middle and high school. I know my dad came to talk to my principle and said "He's a boy, what do you expect him to do? Play with dolls?" every time he was called in. At home he yelled at me and pinished me (I think) but supported me nevertheless. As long as noone was hurt, educate them and help them make the right decisions.

    I know I am dating myself but we used to be able to bring our shotguns to school (so we could go small game hunting nearby after school).

    "Just leave your guns in the office boys and make sure you keep the ammo in your locker" I can see that happening today and no one really

    paid much attention then.

    Today my daughter is afraid to send my Grandson to school with an M1 For Vets t shirt because it has a picture of a gun on it, never mind that

    it was an M1 Garand and helped give these clueless tools their freedom!

    My girlfriend is a fifth grade school teacher in Syracuse. One of her kids brought a steak knife to school and threatened some girl he liked. The principal wouldnt suspend the kid, and didnt even bother calling the parents of either student.

    Today's school system is ****ed.
