Kids need to toughen up; could have fallen out of someone's pocket (as in left from an outing).
good reporting calling a cartridge a bullet.

First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me. ~Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
I remember being in school as a kid... being a Boy Scout I always had a Swiss Army knife on me and more than once brought in a survival knife or big folder and even spent casings in to show my friends etc... Heck we even bought in cap guns and played war games at recess and this was at a catholic school!
Nowadays any one of those things would get you expelled and probably jailed regardless of intent.
Because of the few incidents of school shootings I can certainly understand prohibiting that stuff at school but people need to use common sense, I don't agree with the zero tolerance BS.
Oh and surprise, even though I grew up with guns and knives I'm not a criminal, mass murder or otherwise drain on society. Shocker!
Sorry, went off on a tangent.
I showed this to my Dad and he was astonished he then told me of stories of how when we went to school all the hunters brought guns and ammo with them to school so they could go hunting after. Wow 40 years pass and it seems like a lifetime.
When I was in school I brought in Dads 8mm Mauser to refinish the stock in wood shop class, nobody even raised an eyebrow. My drivers ed teacher kept his rifle in the trunk of the schools car and we would road hunt on our outings, he also let us smoke in the car. times sure have changed
I saw this on the news while waiting for my oil change. I laughed at when they said bullet. Ignorance is bliss.
I laugh at people that think their knowledge is so superior they can mock people that call a cartridge a bullet.
Unless they were spent casings didn't those cartridges contain a bullet?
I laugh at people who don't know wtf their writing about or use terms they perceive as having better shock value. Like how semi-auto firearms became assault weapons and now has evolved to deadly assault weapons.but geez if they said cartridges were found only gun people would know what they mean.
Let us just be glad that the said bullets didn't decide to spray themselves. Ha! More seriously, live ammo on the floor of a school is cause for concern because today's laws only allow mass murderers, rapists, terrorists and other criminals to carry weapons on school grounds. For everyone else it is a crime.
Because I know the difference? How does that make me act like I'm better than everyone? Knowing and acting is two different things.
You told us you laughed at the reporter and then you called him ignorant.
You do realize this is getting nowhere. If you dont like it, dont look at. But if you want to be a big girl and get butthurt about something that wasnt even directed towards you, then more power to you.
I believe I have said enough. Your own words speak towards your maturity way better than anything I can say.
good day sir
Hell, I went to a little hick school in NY until my senior year, and I remember the older kids always had shotguns in their cars because they had been hunting before school in the morning. This was in the 80s and early 90s. The worst thing we had happen was someone came to class with his camo stuff still on and forgot to take off his shell holder. The teacher told him to put it in his locker. I don't think anybody was afraid some kid was going to gun everyone down. (Oh, wait, some teachers were afraid of my friends and I because we played Dungeons and Dragons. That was the big evil then, along with Ozzy and metal music.)
Now at that same school a shell holder would get that kid thrown in prison.

Holy excessive response. Teacher's response should have been "thanks for giving me this" followed by dropping it into a trash can.
