This is a terrible thing, but I'd like to know is what the school is doing to punish the other boy. It seems to me that the boy who pulled the gun was doing so to protect himself, to get his message clear that he didn't want to fight the other boy. It's obvious he didn't want to actually shoot or hurt anyone - there was no ammunition in the gun! Until schools start punishing bullies and putting partial responsibility for these occurrences on them, things will never change in our schools! It's sad that this boy is going to be punished for providing for himself the one thing his school should have done for him - protection!

FMradio123,

Very well put. I don't think anything warrants a gun in a school, however bullying seems to be progressively getting worse.

I guess with all the divorces and our immoral society they way it is there is a lot of unhappy and frustrated boys out there that become bullies. Both the school and the parents of the bully should be brought into this as well.
