A student brought a loaded gun to an elementary school in Fargo.
Valley Live News reports that a student brought a loaded gun to an elementary school in Fargo. After the student allegedly told his class that he had a gun, the teacher was able to locate and confiscate the gun. There was a brief lockdown and the student was suspended.
Stories of guns being brought into North Dakota schools seem to come up frequently recently.
In October, a pupil of the Hettinger public school committed suicide in front of pupils and a teacher. Last week, Valley Live News reported that a caller alerted the “Whistle Blower Hotline” that there was a school shooting at “DL High School” (it was apparently not clear whether the call was for Devils Lake or Detroit Lakes). And, this week, we’re talking about a student sharing with the class that he had a loaded handgun.
Gun violence in American schools is a problem.
Since I should probably preface every gun story I write, I’m pro guns. But the fact that children bring such dangerous weapons to school is very alarming. For example, someone at home does not practice gun safety if their child is able to casually bring a gun to school. Lives can change forever with the push of the trigger – think of two great devastating and traumatic cases like Columbine Where Sand hook. This kind of situation should be taken seriously.
What do you think of the recent gun cases in North Dakota schools?
