A Bronx school went into lockdown this morning after a campus aide overheard a student talking about his gun -- a toy gun it turned out, officials said. The lockdown was called off after an hour and no weapon was found at PS 54, on Fulton Avenue and East 174th Street, officials said.
A campus aide reported hearing a student say “something about a gun,” a law enforcement source said.

I agree, its an overreaction. But what would you expect a school to do? They have to take any threats, no matter how asinine, seriously.

People don't want to be proactive, they want to be reactive...it's ridiculous.

The knee-jerk zero-tolerance reactions to EVERYTHING that could possibly be ANY form of gun are getting old. The other one recently where a girl had brought in a piece of paper that was ripped to vaguely resemble a pistol takes the cake IMHO.
/the bubble gun girl and the kid suspended for pointing his finger are asinine as well.
