'Gum' Scare Panics School

Instead of fostering a nurturing and safe place to learn (by arming teachers and administrators); schools are getting schizophrenic.

A kid at Lehman High School in Texas asked a friend for some chewing gum.  So what?  Well how about the panic that set in when another kid walking by thought the kid said “gun,” instead of gum.

District spokesman Tim Savoy insists no “lock down,” took place but school administrators did “hold students in their extended class periods to investigate the concern...”

Jerry Brown banned conceal and carry in California schools.  This is akin to the military disarming because the enemy has guns.
