Nevada Schools on Lockdown- shooting avoided
Nevada Schools on Lockdown as Police Search for Teen With Gun
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Two schools were locked down Monday while police searched for a teenager who had been spotted on a high school campus with a gun, authorities said.
No students were hurt, and police said there was no initial indication that the teenager, who they said was not a student, had threatened anyone with the weapon, said Sean Walker, a North Las Vegas police spokesman.
The teen ran from the school after being confronted by campus police as students were arriving at Mojave High School, Walker said.
A handgun was found behind a nearby church, and both the high school and nearby Elizondo Elementary School were locked down while police searched the surrounding neighborhoods for the teen, Walker said.
School districts across the country have been especially sensitive to threats after deadly shootings last week at schools in Wisconsin and Colorado.
On Friday, a school principal was gunned down in Cazenovia, Wis., and a 15-year-old student, described as upset over a reprimand, was charged with murder. Just two days earlier, an adult gunman held six girls hostage in a school at Bailey, Colo., before killing a 16-year-old girl and then himself.
On Sept. 21, three high school seniors in Green Bay, Wis., were charged with conspiracy to commit homicide for allegedly planning to attack a school with guns and bombs.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

We had an incident last year when a student brought a bb gun ( a rifle) to a theaters/arts class as a prop. He parked and walked right across the quad with it in the open.
Of course, the calls started coming in and the officers deployed at the building. At the same time as that was going on, there was a grade school show in the main theater- it's something the University does every year for the local schools and was being attended by 300 + kids.
So, now we have officers running all over the place- hell, they even deployed the rifles.
When all was said and done, the student was perplexed about the commotion he had caused. Even worse, his theaters/arts professor was also. They just couldn't figure out why people were nervous.
At least around grammer schools and high schools, people understand. Not so in the rarified air of the ivy-covered halls."When a crime is committed, liberals blame society. Conservatives blame the criminal." -Debra Saunders
Old Scottish Motto- "nemo me impune laccessit". It still holds true today.
