    Gun at McKinley Middle

    The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says the School Drug Task Force arrested a 13-year-old McKinley Middle Magnet student Monday for allegedly bringing a gun to school.
    Deputies say around noon, several students told the assistant principal that a student had brought a gun to class.
    The assistant principal contacted the sheriff's office and the School Drug Task Force responded.
    According to the sheriff's office, the boy was searched and deputies discovered he was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a .38 caliber revolver. The gun was not loaded.
    The teen was taken into custody and is charged with carrying a firearm onto school grounds.
    We're told LEAP testing at the school was not interrupted because of the incident.

    "OH no, little 13 year olds aren't dangerous!"

    Riiiiiight. Where'd he get the vest? Kind of hard to smuggle that out of Daddy's closet.

    (Baton Rouge, LA - WAFB) A 13-year-old middle school student brought a revolver onto his school's campus Monday, but it's not just the gun that's causing an uproar. It's what deputies found on the boy that is also raising a lot of eyebrows. We are learning a little bit more about what may have driven the teenager to bring a revolver to school. Deputies say he was threatened by a group of students. That might also explain why he had on something on extra under his clothes.
    While thousands of Louisiana students have their heads lodged into textbooks and LEAP testing on their minds, one McKinley Middle Magnet student appears to have other interests. "Parents aren't teaching their kids anything. LEAP testing is going on." Melissa Warren has two younger sisters who attend this magnet school. They're inside the walls for at least eight hours every day.
    So, when Warren got word that a 13-year-old boy brought a .38 caliber revolver onto school grounds, she was stunned. "It scares me a bit. I love my sisters to death. You don't know who his target was or anything." The school's acting principal, Carolyn Morris sent out a message to parents late Monday afternoon. "This was an isolated event, and no threats were made to either students or staff."
    What has many parents on edge, wondering just what was the teen's intentions, was the bulletproof vest he wore under his clothes. "He was prepared for something. A bulletproof vest? Maybe he's watching too much TV. Maybe something is going on in his household with him," Warren says. The teen reportedly got the vest from a family member who is retired from the military. There's no word yet on where the middle-schooler got that gun. Chris Trahan with the school system says despite everything that went on at McKinley Middle, LEAP testing was not interrupted

    Man, that's really messed up. My oldest son is 14. I am lucky so far in that the only thing he is really interested in nowadays is our explorer program. Counting my blessings.

    And that is supposed to be the " Good Kid " school, the school for advance learners.

    If it was a case of severe bullying, I can just about see it. My high school was more of a prison, where the good kids were at the mercy of the thugs, and because of school policy, you couldn't even defend yourself. But this was back in the day when high schoolers had shot guns in their truck to go hunting after school, too. The more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess.
