I hate to link to anything that comes from a Fox News source or affiliate, but:
KEARNS, Utah – A 6th grade student brought an unloaded handgun to West Kearns Elementary School Monday.
The 11-year-old boy allegedly told other students his parents encouraged him to bring a gun to school for protection following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.
The boy reportedly pulled the gun, a .22-caliber pistol, out of his backpack during recess Monday morning.
“At recess, he pointed a gun to my head and said he was going to kill me,” said Isabel Rios, one of the boy’s fellow 6th grade students.
Granite School District officials say students didn’t notify teachers about the weapon until 3 p.m.
News Corp. is partly responsible for today’s gun insanity (Remember Glenn Beck and the “Obama concentration camps” or any “Fox & Friends” psychosis involving Obama taking your guns away?). And now its Fox affiliates report with horror that it has gotten to the point where parents (I’d bet any amount of money longtime Fox News watchers) are telling children to bring guns to school.
It going to get worse.
