A discussion between two children about a toy nerf gun caused a lockdown and a massive armed police response at two elementary schools in the Bronx today in yet another example of how hysteria is sweeping America’s education system in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings.
Panicked parents rushed to the two schools on Fulton Avenue and East 174th Street today after heavily armed police were called to respond to reports of a gun on campus. The alarm was caused by a campus aide overhearing a student say “something about a gun.”
The “gun” turned out to be a brightly-colored toy nerf gun that fires harmless foam bullets, and the child in question hadn’t even brought the toy to school.
“The 12-year-old boy told police he was talking to a classmate about his toy Nerf gun, which he left at home,” reports the NY Post, meaning the object that caused the panic was never even on campus.
The two schools were locked down for over an hour with pupils kept inside as police with weapons drawn hunted down the deadly non-existent toy gun.
“It’s nerve racking. There are police officers here with assault rifles and there are helicopters flying around. It’s really scary out here,” said parent Jacklyn Williams.
“When I got to the school, it was crazy,” added Vanessa Sanchez, a mother of a first-grader. “People were yelling and running around. There was a huge group of people in the park across the street. I was really nervous and worried. I didn’t know what happened to my son. I want to make sure he was safe.”
“Two students from P.S. 171 said they were told to crouch under their desks during the sweep,” reports MyFoxNY.
The lockdown ended at 9:30am.
The boy “could face some kind of discipline from the school” for merely discussing the toy gun with his classmate, reports the NY Daily News.
